Hi to all, it's some time I'm reading these really interesting forum and website.
Since one month ago I was just searching for a replacement for the old old mobile of my new wife. Searching for her first smartphone I was considering something easy, not too big, nice to see, with all the useful social such as Facebook and Whatsapp, and with a future as development.
Need to say iOS was the first to be under scrutiny but either used terminals are incredibly expensive. I have had no trouble to pay top price for my high-end SmartTV last year, but paying more than $300 for a mobile that you use every day and maybe you need to change in a couple of years...its not my policy.
Android was the second one, but in my judgment a bit too technical and not so nice to see.
I also loved Nokia (all my mobile till now are Nokia) so started considering his terminals, but Symbian its almost EOL and so I come to WP.
I also use BB for my work, but waiting for BB10 I don't think can be the right choice for my or her everyday mobile.
I have heard about WP since Nokia strategic decision, but was clear to me that WP7 was far from a mature, optimized and extensible. The WP8 announcement come at the right time and changed all my perception. Finally a stylish, modern, easy to use OS.
So I pre-ordered one of the new HTC handset, and I hope will receive it soon enough for her birthday. I will be not the direct owner, but since I'm sure the most tech-sawy in the couple I will be involved in her learning :). And I will also be able to evaluate the system for my own next and probably more advanced mobile.
PS apologize for my English, as I'm sure you will immediately recognize, its not my first language!
