Sure, sometimes there were ways aorund it if you rooted the device and got a rom of some community, but not for all features, and who wants to break their warranty?
But the Android Google shipped took very long time to be a complete smartphone OS.
I use android, still feels sometimes the old Symbian way was better. In symbian you didnt have to have data traffic active to get updates for the clock. In symbian, a bunch of apps didnt start up and connected to internet as soon as I turn on data traffic. Task managing was easier with the built in switcher in symbian than it is now with android. And symbian came with built in file manager... and oll those things before we ever heard of Android.
So google sure wasnt delivering all the basic functions when Android first came out. Up until 2.2 there were quite a few tings missing.
On the other hand that doesnt mean that WP should still be missing basic features. And I cant understand why it would take so long to implemate those things... Sure WP is based on all new code and has no use of the old Windows mobile code, but still, those basic features shouldnt take that long to implemate.
But the same goes for android... why did it take so long?
hardbass, 17 Jul 2012whoo needs bluetooth file transfer... if you dont like zune you have mass storageYou might not need but people who transfer files with friends and colleagues really need it...its so important that most people dont buy WP just coz it doesnt have bt file transfer...so Ms has to bring it to WP.

Still boring,.need sum good stuffs, better i ll buy zolla wid meego, what an ugly and unsatisfying decision by nokia for quittin meego>> ton times better than wp's n lookin at thiz features wp8 has got nothin new to catch up... god bless them...
lgstoian, 17 Jul 2012Sadly enough these days Nokia actually does equal Microsoft. Thank Elop for that one.Elop is an idiot. People dont buy a phone expecting it to get features two years from now or even three hours from now. What we want is support for our devices. Yeah we know. Eventually products get phased out but dont amounce it! Sheesh. What am idiot. Symbian, meego, wp7 all amounced. Such an idiot. I prefer to be surprised. I should be their ceo. I would've said. We're keeping symbian for low end, meego for mid and windows for top. Elop? More like eflop. Inviting hate for such good albeit limited products. Idiot
Android had this ages ago? Old WinMo had this ages before ANdroid so STFU, Win7 was created from zero...

How did this become a nokia bashing post? Its a windows 8 post. All of a sudden nokia=microsoft? Its not like samsung, htc, sony, dell or anyone else makes windows phone right? Hey! Wake up! This is good news. If microsoft raises the bar, Apple and Google will have to raise theirs too! Its a win for us the consumers. Btw. Imo. Quad core is not highly utilised. Windows phone 7 is blazingly fast. Single core xolo beats quad core. What is your point? Dual core krait whoops quad core bomsy. There is no argument. Its optimization. How can symbian support 41mp on ancient hardware? Optimization. That is what I want.
So basically windows phone 8 is getting features that android had at launch years ago. Wow Microsoft is really going all out on this one.
Owning a windows phone must really feel like being in the early 2000'ds.

Please Microsoft! You've gotta bring bluetooth file transfer to WP8 too!!!! There are millions who don't buy a WP just because of that feature...Awesome that mass transfer is being added but also add BT file transfer!
