Nice preview Paul, I took the risk and got my Mix 2 a few weeks ago from Amazon, I am very pleased with the Mix 2 good processing power and a great form factor.
Here City Lens, Here Maps and Here Drive are also available in New Zealand.
I have the 700T and I really like it, the 5-6 hour battery life is OK, and so much better than the 1.5 hour on my old Lenovo, but it would be good if the keyboard dock had extra battery.
I want to be able to use smartdj by an event, like Christmas or lollapalooza or even over podcasts that are techy. This would be so useful.
What about podcasts? It would be great to see podcasts on the music 'store'. Zune let you subscribe, but xboxmusic gives nothing. Otherwise really liking xboxmusic.
