Would like to see the best from Meego, such as swiping through main windows, notification threads ad the best of all multitasking capabilities. That combined with windows phone 8.1 and the pureview and maps tech would be great.
Now back on 808 pureview for a while

WP never lags even in 1Ghz single core processor.
The only problem with WP might be few less features found on android but the rest it better in every way.
Awesomeness about WP:
Battery Life.
Fast very fast.
Highly secured from viruses.
Stable.
App standard is too good.
Requires low resources.
GUI is quite good as being in contrast.

But as it is now it's not a friendly phone for people who don't need to be told what they can or can not do with their own files.

Do you finally have all the functionality of the desktop IE in the WP version?

Still no forward/backward navigation hmmmmm?

This is part of the reason my wife gave up on her Nokia with WP8.1

I've been waiting for articles about Windows to appear here in gsmarena! It's a good start for Windows to be recognized.
