I actually find many of the Nokia apps to be useful (search the store for Nokia)

I think this may be where WP will benefit from the Nokia take-over - Nokia know the apps phone users want (they've been complaining about missing core apps for a long time) and now that they are part of MS, they may be able to implement these into WP where MS would have ignored them.

Wholeheartly agreed.

It seems like 80+% of best quality apps for WP8 are made by Nokia.
