    MS already stated couple of times that current phones on the market would not be supported by WP8, and that they are single core was mentioned as one of the reasons… that is a pitty for Lumia as they are fresh on the market and will basically become outdated so soon, I could expect that nokia has under the table a compatible phone in the same body to put same day on the market when WP8 is there.

    can i update my windows 7.5 mango samsung omnia w to windows 8 mobile edition?

  18. erwt May 30, 2012 3:34 pm

    @hmm, while that is a likely scenario to happen, it has actually never been officially stated by MS. There has been just as many “statements” supporting the notion of an upgrade to WP8 for current devices, but still nothing official. Just rumors.

    can Samsung Omnia W update to WP 8??? please tell me admin.

    I don’t like it. The tiles look like icons now and are too small :( You could fit over twice as many tiles without all that wasted blank space.

    Also, I don’t like how it is side scrooling. The vertical scrolling home screen is much easier to use.

    Lumia 900.
    Please kindly make some improvements:
    1. Nokia Drive – add possibility to save current location!
    2. Nokia Drive – add possibility to add Favourite locations.
    3. Nokia Drive & Nokia Maps – make them interconnected when both applications are open (exchange Favourites, switch from Maps to Drive when setting destination).
    4. Nokia Drive – add possibility to make destination search in Google (like in NavFree for iPhone for example, check the competitors solutions, sometimes there is a lot to learn)! There I need only to enter company name and it gives me its address as location and I can start navigation to it!
    5. Nokia Drive – ADD SPEED CAMERAS & ALERT FOR THEM!!!!!! At least for Finland and Scandinavia! Come on, this is so obvious flaw on newest phone!!!!
    6. Nokia Drive – add possibility to choose from different routes!!!! Often the phone is giving extremely inconvenient route to the desired location!
    7. Nokia Drive – add Route Overview function to have possibility to check route before starting to navigate!!!!
    8. General – make it possible to close application easily! Now I have to punch “Back Key” several times to close program of application… Very inconvenient!!!!
    9. General – make separate application where it will be possible to turn Off of On all communications: GSM, GPS, Location, Bluetooth, WiFi, Hotspot (internet sharing), etc. Don’t tell me that it can be done in “Settings” – you can barely see if they are on or off and this whole application is total mess. Make nice visible and simple switches!
    10. SIM card tray – make it more reliable!!!!!! The salesperson who sold me the phone, bended the lock mechanism in the tray in the first time he entered a SIM in it!!!! Make it from metal as on iPhone or something!!!!
    11. Calendar – ADD WEEK NUMBERS!!!!! It is so simple…
    12. Messaging – add FORWARD function to messages! I know it is possible to copy/paste, but it is so inconvenient…
    13. General – ADD ESTONIAN LANGUAGE to keyboards and make this system work more fluently. When entering text, too often phone changes to wrong word!!!!
    14. Battery – add battery % by the battery sign!!!! Now it is impossible to understand how much charge is left! And considering extremely bad battery time it is a HUGE problem!!!!
    15. General – MAKE A WORKING PC CONNECTION TO SYNCHRONIZE WITH OUTLOOK!!!!!!! Nokia Communicator E90 had EXCELLENT soft for that. I am sure that you are able to check it and make same or even better!!!!!
    I paid 540 € for this phone and I DO NOT WANT TO PAY MORE to third parties to make MS Windows Outlook to work with Windows Phone!!!!! IT IS SOOOOO STUPID!!!!!!!
    16. Settings – make it possible to use as a ringtone (and alarm, and message tone etc.) any music from the Music installed on the phone!!!!! That is just one string to add to code… Come on! And it is working on most phones in the market!!!!!
    17. Settings – add “ascending” possibility to ringtones!!!!
    18. General – location of the key on screen to switch between start screen and apps menu… Please make it adjustable, now it is positioned AWFULLY!!!!

    WP8 can upgrade to nokia umia 710

    I agree wholeheartedly. I’ve noetcid in my personal business as well as at school that I am pushing and receiving information on the fly more and more frequently. A fellow student recently approached me and asked to get a copy of my notes from class. I opened the Dropbox app on my smartphone, navigated to the file, and zipped it off to her in an email! The file wasn’t downloaded or created on my phone.I’ve also used remote access applications on my smartphone to troubleshoot computer issues for personal clients while being away from my laptop and a few hours from home.I think the comsumerization of IT is drastically changing the way tech savvy people collaborate and work together in nearly all aspects of life, and I for one love it!
