    I'm 3 months in, and still no lag or slowdown!! I don't believe there ever will be (except for the odd strange slowdown for a few seconds, once or twice a month when doing something in particular).

    After 2 or 3 months, my WinMo device wasn't "slow" in the true sense of the word (it's a clean WinMo 6.1 install, with Sense turned off, and SPB Shell on), but it had certainly slowed down and become laggy compared to when it was newly installed. In fact, the boot-up time went from 30 seconds or thereabouts, to over a minute!! Opening messages was often a case of waiting for an age for them to start up, to the point where I just left it running in the background all the time lol. I notice the sheer speed of Windows Phone even more, when I use my TouchPro 2, even when it's running well, it feels slow. And it's overclocked to 741Mhz!! Plus it needs a restart every day or two to keep it running sweet, WinPhone never really needs a reboot, though I do try to once a week to be on the safe side.

    SuperTube is deffo where it's at!! I think the Pro version is even free now as well!! It's worth having for the slider on the video's on it's own; it's funny isnt it, how Microsoft do not have the brains to work out that a slider is a blatantly obvious better solution for forwarding on a touchscreen, than an antiquated and tedious forward/rewind button, that you can't even hold to scan!!
    I don't really understand what you're on about. The standard player on WP devices has that slider for forward/rewind. At least on Nokia's it does.

    Honestly you will be amazed at what wp7 can do out of the box. Just hit the search button and play with visual search, then the music search, it is far superior to goggles. I could go on for hours about how amazing an is it is. Enjoy your time with it :)

    Wrong forum; WP is not Symbian. ;)

    Just a shame Microsoft don't allow to zoom on Bing Search for WP. Unless you open the image on the webpage. Bit of an oversight to leave that feature out. There'll be some reason for it, no doubt, but imho, it's a drawback.

    I wonder if they changed it in Tango...

    Look man, I've got the Lumia 710. It definitely HAS the slider thing for fast forwarding, I use it every day to FF my movies. Now the zune MUSIC player on the other hand only has the buttons. But the VIDEO player on a Nokia Lumia 710 (WINDOWS PHONE, yes!) has it. Or I must have a Lumia that's somehow different then everybody elses.

    So I'll ask again : What ARE you on about when saying a WP (Windows Phone, not Symbian) device does not have a slider for FF movies ???
