    How dare you. Windows Phone 8 is perfect, and we must pretend that any missing features aren't needed, are worthless and used by only kids. More apps? Pfttt . How many fart apps do you need?

    Please, explain what you mean. I'm not allowed to have an opinion on here? And you just proved my point in this thread: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...-messages.html

    Someone complains about not being able to search text messages. Your response: Why would you need to? I have never needed to.

    In terms of feature set, while i do think Microsoft need a Rocket somewhere regards Windows Phone, the platform is pretty young compared to the competition.

    *Apparently* the new iPhone is going to be, inspired shall we say, by Windows Phone, but with black and white being the basic look of it. If that turns out to be true..we already have that on WP8 :oP And no i don't actually think it'll look like that...that would be a bit damn cheeky of them.

    Tell me about it, the fact that Android was able to fix its lag issues, Apple overhaul their design and BB re-launch new platform faster than 100,000 people at MSFT were able to add basic features says a lot

    100,000 at Microsoft? You are kidding me right? The WP team will be a tiny proportion of that.

    Lets be honest, if the rumours about iOS7 are true, its nothing more than a redesign of the front end. Hardly a major update. Same with Android, fixing lag is an exercise in optimisation, hardly rewriting an OS from the kernel up.

    Complain all you like about the lack of "new features" on WP8, but all the current stream of new big name apps, there has to have been a number of those that have only happened due to the rewrite of WP, that made porting from iOS/Android a lot easier. Apps is by far the biggest problem with WP, and working to help resolve that issue is far more important than most of the minor complaints i read about on a daily basis.

    Using BB10 relaunch isn't really a good example. How many years did that take?

    I imagine the unveiling already...

    "We at Apple have invented a completely new and completely unique user interface that is just a joy to use and unlike anyone else in the business. iOS is still gorgeous, but we decided it was time for something new. Here it is. As you can see, it's even more gorgeous. Looking at the competition, we can say noone else has done such a radical, innovative departure from the norm as this. The UI is flat, and solid colors add to the simplicity and ease-of-use that Apple is known for. It's clean, fast, amazing, and now there's nothing between you and your digital life. Steve Jobs knew typography, so typography is a front-and-center element in iOS 7. Big text at the top of apps so you never get lost. We've integrated the famous badges into the icon's themselves because we can. And it looks even better. Mac OS X has "Aqua", but since mobile platforms are different, iOS gets "Modern". Truly unique, innovative, and truly... wait for it... revol"UI"tionary."

    and before we know it, Microsoft somehow copied Apple.
