I'd had mixed hopes for the new UI, but I'm not surprised that it's sub-par. It's hard to build a UI that's pretty and that works -- add in limiting it to just whatever Verizon wants you to have and you have a recipe for crap. At least you can turn it off.

Otherwise, yes, not entirely fair. On the other hand, it does raise a good point about "initial experience," which was supposedly what Microsoft has been focusing on a lot lately. I seem to recall something about a philosophy of 5s - first 5 minutes, first 5 days, something like that..

We'll get a Q9M next week, IIRC. Will definitely be writing about it on the FP.
