Mobility - iPhone

Very happy with my Windows Phone so far

I got a HTC 8XT windows phone from Sprint a month ago. So far I've been very happy. The list of app is certainly disappointing, and that's on Microsoft to have to incentivize developers and companies to put out apps, because they certainly wouldn't do it now based on current market share. However, the UI is clean, and I can completely customize it to give me the level of notifications I want.

Moving off iTune Podcasts and back into Zune podcast.

I guess I am now "dead man walking".  It's just a matter of time before Microsoft kills Zune, much to my chagrin.  However, I just had too many problems with iTune podcast syncing that it's not worth my time right now.  I wonder how Windows Phone fair with podcast syncing.  If it's better, then it'll be time to say bye to my iPhone.

Zune player wins over iTune, hands down... in mini player mode

Maybe this is me not really knowing all the in's and out's of IOS. I just couldn't get the iTune to play my video podcast in mini player mode. Either I get a screen that is tiny like a thumbnail, or I get a player that takes up half of the screen. Even though I starting to like my iPhone more and more, this feature is a score 1 for Microsoft. So much so that I've decided to carry 3 mobile devices for the short future (iPhone, Zune, my own dumb phone). And after moving all my podcasts to iPhone, I ......
