    Yeah I saw that on the BBC site. I've been glimpsing at the news. I don't get overly excited about these things personally. I love tech but it's a tad stale at the moment.
    I keep up with CES with Engadget. Most of the news don't really interest me, I like to read about the new cameras.

    In Switzerland every phone works on every net, and you get usually all of them unlocked from independent shops much cheaper than directly from the carrier.
    That's how it should be all over, but the problem is that the US carriers have always had the OEMs and the consumers more importantly by the balls. Your system is what I was always used to before moving here and have decided that I'd rather just treat the hardware and the service as two separate things. Which means I buy my phones unlocked now.

    Same here. While I like reading about the stuff, I rather tech I can use and is a great fit for me. Some of the stuff is a bit too over the top.

    We don't know what WP8.1 will bring. For all we know it could be revolutionary and have things we don't expect. I really don't see the aquisition having a serious affect on the overall performance on the WP department, how much worse can it get... :P (sarcasm)



    Can't say much about the competition. Currently, no manufacture has any flagship that I'm interested in. That includes Nokia. I'm not interested in large display phones.
    Same here. There is nothing out there that makes me go "Man I'm in need of that!". The stuff I have is so "because they're good at one thing". It is why at the end of the day I still sing the praises of the 8X - it is a very balanced headset. Sometimes being good enough at everything can offset being great in one or two areas (Mapping, Camera) and being a dud in others (Audio). Yup, I'm talking you Nokia...

    I use Bluetooth for audio with an old Nokia Headset. The sound is pretty good but I want something new, partially because the ones I have are not that good and hurt after a while.

    Ah. I use my Purity wired headphones and while they are balanced, they're on the quiet side. I had some old iPhone headphones I was using that were much louder - so loud I would listen them with the volume on 10/30 and still hear nice sound but they got damaged yesterday. So I'm going to look around for something else. I'm looking into maybe one of the Sony models for Bluetooth options...

    I will give Nokia credit where it is due in the Audio dept - while comparatively ancient, the Play 360 is a bad *** speaker. I love mine because it is loud, the sound is clean and it had the versatility to pair with all my devices and be plugged into my PC as well. I wanted to get a cyan to compliment my white one but I think I will stick with one for now...

    For wired I have a pair of Logitech earbuds. Damn loud things. They hold up well to volume but can be a touch tinny. I adjust the equalizer with them. I can't do much with the bluetooth ones I have.

    Anyone been keeping up with CES? Just saw an article about turning your smartphone into a tricorder or a stun gun :D
    I would love one!

    If I need a bit of a shock just get my phone out and zap myself.

    I highly doubt that, but then it comes down to personal preference. Everyone is different.
