Today I finally got around to getting a Windows phone. It'll take me a few days to get it set up the way I want and to get used to using it, but so far I am really digging it. It really is a very good phone OS.
Between the three choices available through VZW, I went with the Nokia Lumia 822. I really do like this phone. I've spent the past couple of hours downloading the apps I need. The only app I really need that isn't (yet) available for WP8 is one I use for work to scan my paperwork to the office. Hopefully that company will port the app over to WP8 sooner or later.
In the meantime I can still use my Android GS3 for that task, so no big deal.
I really hope the Windows phone will catch on more as people eventually gravitate to Windows 8 as that will mean more app developers will build apps for it (although it is currently the fastest growing app store out there, basically from playing catch up). The OS is smooth, responsive, and just feels complete, although it's relatively young and does have some areas that need improvement.
I'm sure upgrades will address those areas as it goes along. I remember early Android, which didn't impress me at all, and now it has come a long way and is a respectable mobile OS. I feel that competition is good and I hope MS steps up and gives iOS and Android and run for their money as I think all three will improve as a result.
