    Since it appears that Microsoft will never support some sort of XBOX video store for WP devices, perhaps Amazon, Nokia, or some other third party would be motivated to make up for the slack. Anybody have any insight on this?

    Having never used XBox and not sure what it is I find Netflix is excellent on WP.

    Netflix is fine but WP needs a video option that doesn't involve streaming. You can load non-DRM videos but that is a lot of unnecessary trouble. I don't know what the hang up is. Every other major Smartphone OS has a movie store of some kind.
