In a sense, it feels like Windows Phone 8 is Microsoft's first real foray into the smartphone space post Windows Mobile. Of course, Microsoft made a concerted effort with Windows Phone 7, but there's something very different about version 8. WP8 borrows from the underpinnings of Windows Phone 7, but there are so many differences in the operating system -- along with its incompatibility with WP7-class hardware -- that it feels like we're evaluating an entirely new product. And in reality, we are.

Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 Review

How many times have you been driving somewhere, go to pull out your maps application, and find yourself in a bad signal area, unable to determine where you need to be going, or whats around you. I wonder if it displays grid coordinates?
Thank very much!
I have had the Lumia 800 since it was available. I see big improvements in the new generation. I don't agree with the limited "ecosystem". In some ways it is broader.
My own ecosystem is what I care about. I have a hair salon in Dallas, and so my phone only needs to have access to the Internet so I can surf for hairstyles. But I agree with you; this is now perfectly broad enough for me. I also think AT&T's 4G LTE network is broad enough. Happy camper here.
