    Anybody seen the green 1520 that's on the front page of WPCentral?

    Oh man it looks good!
    Green isn't my colour.

    Well, i just watched a Windows tablet ad, they're being very heavy on the Windows/Windows Phone advertisements here. :)
    I'm either not watching the right programs or I just don't see the ads. The displays are a bit better in some stores here but they still have a long way to go.

    When I lived there and called my mum back in Toronto it was always so confusing. :P Now it's not so bad, only a 5 hour difference.

    I looked it up after I wrote the post. It's easy with the Google Search app on Windows Phone. "Saudi Arabia time" and it shows. The Google Search app on Windows Phone is awesome.

    ...I should try if Bing could do it too ;-)

    It can not. How terribly terrible Bing Search is.

    Unfortunately a lot of the Bing features are only in the US. Which is sad but so typical of MS.

    Yes, I know. But since Google updated the Google Search app that it uses the entire screen and supports picture search, I don't mind. It's just a wasted button, nothing I care much about.

    This morning while running through the pouring rain I decided I won't buy a tablet until my old laptop gives up. Then I'll use the tablet as a laptop replacement. I checked however, and I have more than enough money to spare for a new phone, as soon there is one available I really feel like buying. I think it will be autumn anyway.

    I don't use the app but then I don't search that often on my phone.

    I'm curious to see what the phones will be when they come out. I hope there's something I like. I haven't been too impressed with anything lately. All too big for my liking.

    I think the Android crowd has reached some kind of plateau. Since the Galaxy S3 there was only upgrade in raw numbers, no real new features that I see any use in. It's similar for the iPhone, nothing really special there either.

    That's were I see a chance in Windows Phone. Because they are still lacking in so many areas, they can really bring an upgrade that makes sense, bundled with some nice new hardware. After all I realize more and more, that a new Windows Phone would certainly be easier than switching to iOS. Not because of the apps, I use not many of them and I could easily afford to buy the counterpart on iOS, but because the Skydrive, sorry Onedrive, is implemented well, and because Exchange synchronization just works perfectly.

    I don't know about Exchange synchronization on the iPhone though, maybe it's just as good.

    Heh, yeah, it would be awkward being in different time zones which are more than 10 hours apart. :)

    That's why i am curious to try Android, because Microsoft is not expanding Bing and other services fast enough.

    That's what's interesting about this moment. It's a time where MS can get things right and bring out some features that the competition simply don't have. People talk about what WP doesn't have and ignores where it's different. Most these coming from iPhone or Android. So it will be interesting to see what MS does with the opportunity to shine. The hardware is wars are near a plateau it's really about software and experience. With phones you're only going to go so far with software and features before it becomes unmanageable. That's why I think WP should stick to keeping things simple. I guess we'll see. :)

    I look stuff up on my phone all the time, mostly to proof I am right, sometimes to proof the other one is right. In anyway it's a perfect argument killer ;-)

    I know you use 'proof' due to your science background but when you're talking about a general disagreement it's 'prove'.

    Easy explanation:

    Proof - noun (have proved) - I have proof you are right

    Prove - verb (to proof) - I'll have to prove you are right

    It's only grammar? I looked it up on my phone and it translated both into a noun. Well, then it's clear :)

    Yeah it's one of those odd ball bits of English grammar. What makes it even more interesting is that you can turn proof into a verb as well. Most people use prove when looking at 'to proof' something. Lots of people wouldn't even know that proof is a common word in science. But lets not get started on lack of interest in science that humanity has. It's depressing.

    My watch makes strange things. It's a Tissot T-touch. Since I had to repair it (for 150 CHF...) a few months ago, somehow the electronics reset or something. It's very annoying. I wrote Tissot an email, but I have made the experience that this company is crap and treats customers like crap (what is even more funny because they are even more hypocritical than Apple was a few years ago), so I don't expect much.

    That sucks. I stopped wearing a watch a few years back. I would like a new one but I haven't found anything I like that isn't ridiculously expensive.
