I've been having some minor issues with my Omnia7 - more frequently lately - and they culminated into a massive issue where the voicemail notification didn't work at a crucial point when i was restarting my phone because of the other issue i had where internet connectivity would fail and i had to reboot to restore it.
Having spent quite a bit of time already troubleshooting my 'update to 8107' problem - which had already resulted in a loss of non-skydrive data (thanks Mac Connector) - in the hopes that this would fix the issues and gotten nowhere with my out-of-warranty Omnia 7, when this situation arose I knew I wouldn't be comfortable relying on this device overseas this time.
So I grabbed myself a 4S which I will use as my primary device for the time being. To be clear I am pretty sure this is all a hardware issue and that getting a different WP7 device would probably fix the issues, but i didn't have time to research (and hope), i needed to grab what i knew would work. While I was there I considered the Lumia 800, but I need WiFi Hotspot and with the special treatment Nokia seems to be getting from MS it seems their devices are going to be the flagship WP devices, I didn't really want to go with anything else only to realise later that the best apps end up being Nokia-exclusive or something.
The thing is I already miss WP7 features like:
WP is brilliant and the tiles are fantastic (the iPhone is so damned bland) so this certainly isn't a divorce from WP7, just a separation for a while ;)
When Apollo is released and the landscape is clearer on which device really is the flagship, I'll be back! (well actually for news and discussions as well as having a WP PMP I'm realistically not going anywhere :P)
