    Not really a feature, I'm guessing, but how about having separate volumes for ring tones and music.

    That's almost a requirement, don't you think?

    OK, not all of these are software things (or else they require hardward and software changes).

    - WiFi Hot Spot
    - WiFi calling
    - Something resembling a filesystem
    - USB Drive (Zune is OK, buy why be like Apple and force us to use it?)
    - Notification screen to the left of Start screen.
    - VPN built-in(don't want an app)
    - NFC built-in(don't want an app)
    - Able to change the TellMe Voice

    More cities in the HTC weather app. Typing in West brings up more world cities than cities in the USA starting with the same words. Or let me enter zip and find a closest match. Not sure why its so limited on the HTC hub when my iphone had any city on the map just about.

    +

    Would like to scrub videos by dragging the indicator on youtube and other sites. Only option we have is hitting the forward or backward seek buttons. Not sure how far they jump each time they are pressed.

    30 seconds I think. Fair enough for a 10 minute video. With a 3 minute music video or even a 40 second YT clip it's a bit useless

    'Ringtone' support for notification sounds. Have a cool R2-D2 snippet that would be perfect for text messages.

    You just need to set this up in your online account info. Make sure its enabled so that other programs can modify the email server. Did it a while ago on hotmail for my iphone but forgot where it was. I think it was a link at the bottom of the account details page.

    None of these will ever happen. The entire concept of windows phone and the metro UI is to keep things simple. Notifications will allways just be done with live tiles, a set number of accent colors will always be given, and well , maybe hubs...

    You mean I need to modify the settings on my Gmail, Hotmail, etc. to allow my phone to delete emails?

    How was it that my Android phone could do it with the K-9 email app and no additional modifications? Not that I mind making any necessary changes to the settings on my email accounts; I'm just saying that I haven't had to do that before to gain that functionality.

    I went through all the settings in my email accounts on my phone. I have yet to find an option whether or not to delete on the server.

    Well, then we need a consolidated notification tile. Not having a notification center of some kind will make me go (gulp) iPhone.

    He meant the email account settings on their servers, like in a browser on a computer. At least that's what I think he meant.

    I believe you have to set up Gmail through Exchange, just like I did for my iPhone.

    Custom hubs, notification screen (may swipe to the left for notifications), screen capture and password protection on a per app basis.
