    Hi everyone, I'm Aaron (or Spyro543). I'm a hobbyist computer and PIC programmer. I've decided that I want a windows phone for my next phone. I don't like Android, and I already have an iPad so I don't need or want another iOS device. I can't get a WP phone yet, but I'll keep you guys posted when I do get one!

    Cool welcome to the gang! I had my senior design project last year and I was responsible for programming servos on an arm board, ts-7800 (don't ever use!) specifically for a usv.

    And looks like some awesome WP hardware will be coming out during the fall which you might be able to get then.

    If anyone sees two intro topics by me, I had wrote one and it didn't send, so I wrote another one. The first one I sent had just taken a long time to send. Sorry!

    I use this username for quite a lot of online services. I first came up with this username while playing a Spyro game on my GBA :)

    I don't think I will be able to get one soon...it could be another month or two, actually. I'm kind of hoping that the Nokia phablet will be released in the next month or so, so I could get that.

    I'm sorry, but I think I might want an Android phone, for two big reasons: I use the Google ecosystem tons more than the Microsoft stuff (pretty much never using it). Also, WP's file handling is pretty bad. It's not that I need to browse my files compulsively or anything, but there are times when I need to pull a file from an app. Even iOS can do this somewhat (most apps have an Open in button). Also, the amount of issues I see about almost every windows phone is too high. The GS3 seems like a nice choice for what I want.
