I agree, I don't like it running off the page and off the screen, If your going to make a screen, at least make the text fit on the screen and not so big I cannot see all my SMS text messages in conversation view like Blackberry.. That start screen looks dumb.. I would rather see www.fav4.org, buttons for each item. Though I think Windows 8 would do nice to provide a nice quick start desktop, rather than just rely on the start menu.. more like BlackBerry and Android OSs .. and we can hide the startmenu finally as the main feature after taskbar..
I have good apps on my blackberry.. and that UI makes sense to me.. this doesn't. Here it looks like I have to swipe half a dozen screens just to get to SMS and contacts? Seriously.. I want a phone 1st with other functionality second. This certainly doesn't cover Keep It Simple Stupid.. the Font's are way too large.. and the back and forth button are too small. The start menu on that phone looks like the quick start screen on Zune Software 4. which I don't like either. I like ZuneHD's start with a list. There should also be a decent menu that applies to each screen on the phone like blackberry does.. I would like my Txt Messages and my Calendar and My Contacts and Call Log and Email easily accessable, thats why I use Blackberry..its simple and powerful. I prefer texting over every other form of communication.. social or otherwise, its fast and easy.
This guy wants a social networking device.. I seriously don't want all that together which is why I turned off syncing windows spaces too..I wish he would of showed off using email, texting and calling.. not just everything else.. That calendar needs some color.. blackberry has a decent calendar color scheme already.. copy that.
I want a good looking business and media device that allows me to connect with people.. and the problem with facebook is people want to chat with you while your at work, so we don't like to be logged into facebook all the time.. I like the Zune Features he showed, the Email Features and Bing Search.. I totally hate Facebook. Its too integrated..its like the poparatizy and everything all rolled into one place.. I want some friend seperate and there is a reason the people are on seperate social networking systems.. they don't need to know everything.. this guy wants to combine work and everything together.. and that is a horrible idea!!!!!! Hello! Just because you make Exchange and Have windows Live doesn't mean I want all these things merged together.. work is work and home is home, I'd like to keep it that way.
i like silos.. it helps me keep everything organized!!! One stop shop doesn't have to be about total integration, but total accessability, my blackberry is way more intuitive and easy to use, these things look knida vague and you need map with directions on how to get to a feature on this thing.
