Finally VPN client will be available in WP8, it was show stopper to me when i plan to buy Nokia Lumia 920, as this very essential feature in any phone device!

I take FM radio as an alternative when i get tired of listening to my playlist. The Lumia900 is enough for me but the lack of usb-mass storage makes me think twice. Still i got plenty of time on what should i buy since Wp7.8 is still not available. . Hoping that the zune file transfer is also eliminated from there. . Anyways thank sir. . I hope bashers can also be banned here. . :D

Let the droid users worry about there open source system. no knock on android users, though how amazing it is to have firmware update via MS verses the carrier and there lack of effort. Loving my Nokia 920

The best part is updates are pushed directly to the end user regardless of the phone manufacturer. Android should do that too
