I use a WP7.5 mobile, android tablet (ICS) and an android HDMI tv stick running JB... But what I find the standout factor is really the plethora of apps u find for Android and the fluidity and ease u get in WP phone os... But I'm still having the fear of security wrt android devices for every day a security glitch is unveiled on various articles...including hacking threat. If google improves on security and fluidity, WP lovers like us would also switch devices !!! Now don't fill me up with jb stories for i still have a dual core 1.2 GHz android tv stick with a gig ram...but to say the fact, it sometimes still lags a bit...but it has completely swept me off the feet with its streaming multimedia capabilities indeed. I m still a Wp lover and would wait for a 7.8 update as i think WP is the best secured os other than IOS, with its proven fluidity !!! For android...i wud wait a bit until I'm convinced of security reasons...!

Well there is low volume problem with 7.8 on Lumia`s 710 and 800. I have to increase to 30/30 when using headphones and still low. It is not just me but others are complaining too! Nokia sort it out!

I got my lumia 610 upgraded to wp 7.8 about three weeks ago from Nokia Care. It really adds a lot of value to the phone. All of a sudden the phone has become interesting

This is absurd, so much waiting, so much hype around all of this and still nothing concrete, it will come out in the end of the month for SOME devices..

It's just frustrating now..
