To the OP who said MS should have gone the one phone route why? Why should the OS vendor tell me I do not want a hardware keybaoard (Venue) , or a pull out Dolby speaker (Surround) , or large screen (Titan). As a consumer I like that choice vs Apple saying here is 16 gig model here is 32 gig model pick one. That is lose for the consoumer.
As for apps I have about 30 apps installed (not counting games) about 8 of those I use regularly mostly the weather, USA Today amazing for keeping up with the news one of the best non game apps on the platform, 4TH and Mayor ect and that just fine.
