Well, I got it: Nokia Lumia 920, Windows 8

Funnily enough, now that Zune is out of the equation iTunes and that connector problem seems to be the only way to sync podcasts right now. (You can subscribe to them via the Marketplace on the phone, but there's no desktop connection and no way to add podcasts that aren't in the market place. . . )

Do you think MS is going to insist on their closed ecosystem?  Or do you think people are going to start complaining a lot and they will open up the features?  I think the latter will happen, but I'm way out of the loop.  I'm more worried that MS has designed the OS in such a way that certain important functions won't even be accessible to developers that were accessible with previous windows versions.

I am almost certain that it wasn't a purposeful move, they just didn't get it done before launch. Like every other complaint I have with Windows Phone 8, this is functionality that was previously accomplished using the Zune desktop application that they didn't account for when cutting Zune out of the picture.

It could be worse, though -- at least in the US I have access to podcasts in the store. The international community just can't listen to podcasts unless they do so using a third party application.

I think I feel the same way.  From everything I've heard, MS and Nokia did their best to rush the phone out.  Not sure what they were so concerned about schedule-wise, though.  Perhaps 12/21?  ;D

lol - that sounds like a man at work


Not 100% certain, but I think the latest WP8 updates for the Nokia 920 have improved battery performance a lot.  I'm on my second day now with 30% left.  before, I could barely get through one day.
