A forgettable product. It isn't bad, exactly, but also doesn't do anything particularly well. - Engadget

Its awesome in metro style. Where as when you come to small phones the apps will not support it. That was big dis advantage in Windows mobile. Rest of the things awesome..

For me, it's the best mobile OS out there. Personalised, fast, Xbox and Office integration, seamless FB and Twitter integration. Love it.All it lacks is dev support, but that should come if people start opening their eyes.HTC 8X.
