MultipleCores is not as energy efficient as to a single core, haven't you noticed that on desktops? Same applies on mobile phones. Quads may run smooth b'coz of it cores running at the same time, but it drains the battery faster. Thats why Tegra Tabs has a fifth power saving core. So dont bash the lumia510, this phone performs better that similarly spec'd droids. All we have to wait is that the microsoft app store to populate. Next year would be a WpRevolution. .hopefully. . :)

Nokia is crazy releasing this single core phone.

ZTE will be releasing an 8 core superchip! and with android 4.3 on a custom ROM with an overclock will make this WP look laggy!

I have HOX+ , but will get that

there are flaws in every os , android has many , ios is hippie nothing interesting abt it , yes android is cool but battery life and fluidity should be improved , coming to windows phone its new,lively, fast and yes i agree lack of apps but hey its just a few years since its release , were there these many apps on any of your apple or android when they were released ?? WP needs a year more , sure it ll kick ass
