Hope I'm not asking something that 100 people have asked before!
My new WP8 device will arrive any day (Tuesday, to be exact). My WP 7 device is linked to a oldstyle hotmail account. I've never changed to an outlook account as It would have meant to re-setup my wp7-device and I didn't want to do that.
Is getting my new device a good moment to finally change to outlook.com? If yes: Will my contacts, calendar entries and purchases (apps) be transferred?
(I don't mind resetting up my WP7 device once my new WP8 proves to be error-free ...)

Outlook is just a new front-end layer for Hotmail. I'd transfer ASAP.
(Though for some stupid reason, Windows Phone 8 doesn't recognize Outlook.com as a Live.com account and sets it up as an IMAP address without calendar or contacts, unless you set it up manually. Dumb, dumb, dumb.)
