I just bought Samsung Ativ wp8 and found out after sync with my Outlook using outlook live they truncated the Contact notes. Most unexpected from a windows phone. Even Blackberry z10 manage to sync the whole contact notes.

The "No voice-guided navigation" is incorrect! HERE DRIVE+ is available to all WP8 users - at least in the US where the Verizon's Ativ Odyssee will be released.

"Text input on Windows Phone is limited to the default QWERTY keyboard..."

Quote taken from the article on this phone.
Can as many of you with a WP - regardless of whether it's a Nokia, Samsung or other - please comment on whether you find the fact there's only a default keyboard across all Windows phones, restricting in any way/s ?

This is one factor which might prevent me from (ever) getting one - even though I really like the look of the Lumia range.

Wait...what...no Bluetooth file transfer....why? I thought wp8 has that

Btw when google purchased Motorola everyone accused then of "favoring one manufacturer"
No one here questions Microsoft for favoring Nokia , why should I buy a wp8 device outside of Nokia? When it has no navigation, no Bluetooth file share
