I'm not so sure I would call wireless charging "gimmicky". I just got my 928 and purchased the Nokia wireless charging stand, and there is nothing quite like walking by the charger and literally...

'Tank'? Not so sure about that Paul, although I haven't seen one in person yet.
From what I can tell of the dimensions, I think MS designed this to potentially go into an AV rack system,...

Spot on analysis
I often wonder why Paul and others are so down on RT....
It is what I thought MS thought it should be. Frankly, and iP...alternative. Yes, the lack of killer apps...

You may need to consider a career change and work for MS marketing!
Good idea! That would have been exceptionally arrogant, and on point.

Friday, May 31, 2013 - 12:30am

Jeez! Good eye!
I have an Outlook.com account and it doesn't show up like that on my RT.
You may be right about an Outlook "app" in 8.1
That would be very cool. Although, I...

Just received email confirmation that mine is on it's way!
a little worried about call quality based on some less than reliable reviewers, and a scant number of user complaints about the...

I'll echo some other posters sentiments, and say that an ecosystem type manual would be valuable.
One covering the users MS account, and it's importance, and what you get by using something...

Quite thrilled by this news!
My wife and I will be upgrading as soon as they are available in store. I choose to buy in store to see how Verizon employees are handling the sale of WP8...

I am a Verizon customer desperately waiting for a WP8 "hero" phone, and this may be it, if it truly is headed to the Network. I appreciate that it will likely be nothing more than a 920 in wolfs...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 9:57pm

THIS is what will finally get me off my feature phone and onto WP8 with Verizon!
Frankly, while this is an interim release with Verizon, I think that since they are the "popular" carrier, it...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 9:52pm

I hate to say it, but I share your very simplistic view of what MS is likely thinking here...
We have Great ideas, but if we announce them before WE are ready, the competition, which moves...

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 - 9:40pm

Why? that is not the intent of RT!
I wish more folks understood that RT is, or is supposed to be the equivalent of the Appl iPad OS.
Granted, MS F'ed this up in the ad's and by having...

I think you have it now Paul!
I like the first two suggestions:
Paul Thurrott's Windows Phone 8 Guide
Paul Thurrott's Xbox Music Guide

Leave out the "Field" or "Pocket"...

I would really like to see these numbers after (when?) the Nokia 920 variant comes to Verizon.
I suspect there will be a spike in WP usage. Not on the level of Apple or Android, but a spike...

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 3:03pm

Just checked for the update and it is there now (12:02pm AZ)
Very nice interface, and falls right in line with MS's big picture for the unified interface.

Everything seems to be...

Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 9:42pm

Interesting...while the comment numbers are light right now; it is Sunday after all. Not one mention of the potential demise of the desktop from anyone.
Frankly, if done right, and it looks...

Friday, March 15, 2013 - 7:55pm

Try this:
Thurrott's dé·tente(s): Xbox Music
Thurrott's dé·tente(s): Surface RT
Thurrott's dé·tente(s): Surface Pro

You are trying to ease the tension between MS products...

Saturday, March 9, 2013 - 10:12pm

I wouldn't use the 'pocket guide' wording.
I use several 'pocket guide' type books for hiking, and they are literally pocket sized guides. Naming your book like this would give me the wrong...

Saturday, March 2, 2013 - 3:15pm

Great app, and technology.
This is bound to happen I reckon...

I love how you can zoom in...

Monday, February 25, 2013 - 8:40pm

Well, we saw the 520 & 720 today.
Let's hope the 920 Laser is a reality for Verizon!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013 - 9:08pm

Paul,

Can you shed some light on what happens in this particular scenario if/when installing Office 365:

I am currently running the Office 2013 trial and still have Office 2010...

Sunday, January 20, 2013 - 4:03pm

Paul,
Perhaps I am missing something here on how to get my current music collection to the cloud. My entire collection is on a Win7 PC, and accessed via the Zune software. I have upgraded...
