Bye Bye iOS: 30 Days With Windows Phone

Writing about tech isn’t necessarily my job anymore, but I’m still a junkie for it at heart. As such, I wanted to delve in deep with Windows Phone 8 so that I could hold an educated opinion on it.

Yesterday I gave up my iPhone for day 1 of 30 with an HTC 8X. It should be an interesting experiment. I’ve been a big fan of the Windows Phone OS since 7, so I expect that I’ll have an easy enough month ahead. But what I really want to find are the surprises, whether they’re nagging problems, or things that surprise and delight.

Here’s what I know, going into this experiment:

What questions do you have? Curious about anything surrounding the OS? Mind you, I’m not reviewing a phone, but rather an operating system.

Oh, and as a bit of a disclaimer, I’ll still have to occasionally use my iPhone. This device is a loaner, from Verizon. As such, text messages to my number will still go to my iPhone. I’ve forwarded my phone calls, but I can’t activate this HTC device on my account.

Anyone at Microsoft want to loan me a device to do a full switch? Yeah…didn’t think so.
