Software is software IMO. There are great map apps out there that are free. Heck I personally don't need turn by turn and the reason Nokia had so much support is because the L900 had a lot of issues. Heck, they didn't fix the "charging issues" and camera issues until a couple months ago. Im not saying it's a bad thing that they support it, im saying it was bad that they HAD to support it so much becuase of all the problems it had. Its widely assumed by many that the L900 was rushed. So they probably knew ahead of time that they had to support it. They did an OK job of it but I did brick my first L900 because I let it completely die and it would NOT take a charge. I tried ALL the work arounds. And the fact that there was an official work around should tell you something.

I just don't see Nokia as that far ahead of HTC. I think the WP community just loves them so much becuase they went ALL IN with the western market and really did make one of the best WP7 devices.
So it's great on the iPhone which has a 4.0 inch screen but not on the 8X because it has a 4.3 inch screen? Really the .3 inches make ppi irrelevant? I disagree. I have had phones that don't have great pixel density and it's night and day when you have something with over 300ppi. (By the way the 8X has 341ppi and iphone 5 has 326ppi).

Better resolution and ppi makes for a great combo. It means you don't lose the detail with a larger screen. In fact, if the ppi stays the say no matter what resolution you have you will get the same sharpness. Larger, more ppi simply means even clearer picture for an even bigger screen.
It matters to some people.
