    wtf are you talking about :P theres no settings to set up lol you just hit the search button and it brings up local attractions… i can even find concerts and random local events in the same time as it takes to find a restaurant. + all businesses you search have a top result that will list phone numbers, emails, store hours/show times, directions for that business that will call or reserve a time with just 1 click
    OS is faster and the relevant buttons are always 1-3 click away from home screen

    I have the “local” …
    I have the “local” shortcut to the Google+/Maps integrated service on my homescreen, I unlock the phone with my face, tap local and hit restaurants and it takes all of ten seconds, all of this on a two year old Nexus S. Sure if you’ve got a windows phone pre-prepared with all location settings on, etc it does it quickly, but I’m sure if you were to say pick up your Windows Phone after an hour of not using it, and had to turn your location settings back on to use the app,it’d take a while too.

    And most people wouldn’t know how to find it on their WP either because the don’t look for things like that. They just do it the way they’re used to do it on their computers and things like that.

    Windows Phone and …
    Windows Phone and Windows Mobile are COMPLETELY different. You might as well call them totally different operating systems because that’s basically what they were. You really have to give Microsoft a clean slate when using Windows Phone 7, because if you are expecting an experience similar to Windows Mobile, you will not expect much. Being honest, Windows Phone is a very elegant and fast operating system, even with using last generation spec, it can still out perform modern Androids.

  21. TurabGarip says:

    You should check it …
    You should check it again; but from another source than WikiPedia. Because you couldn’t get the point; that is; only the NAME of “WP” was launched in 2010; not the Windows Mobile platform (which was launched in 2000 according to your source).

    FYI, check when HP IPAQ was released and which operating system it was using. This searching will lighten your life. Really.

  22. Kyorere23 says:

    Last time I checked …
    Last time I checked, WP was only out since 2010. Unless you mean that terrible Windows Mobile, in which case, that statement is invalid.

  23. TurabGarip says:

    I am shocked seeing …
    I am shocked seeing what kind of bullsh*t Microsoft is “smoking”. What you shall get from this video is; you need to have a well-ads-educated bald guy to use your Windows Phone. Else; you will need to dig into the phone shouting “what the that bald guy was taught that I can’t find in this sh*t!”

    Sign, a 4 years Windows Phone user. (Yes, that was a dot in the end.)

    P.S: Android sucks as well, but in a different way than Microsoft wear out to understand.
