My kids already have a bet on the over/under on when I switch back. They know me too well.

I do like the form factor. And Hub is great. Peek is cute for a while. Flow between apps is good. Inconsistent UI (I thought TAT was brought in for the UI work) is maddening.

Oh well. I will plod on. Back to App World to see if anything has been added today.

Like Opentable, Skype, Lync, SkyDrive, a decent Speed Dialer...

P.S. 7 hours - mostly on my desk - zero phone calls, zero tweets, minimal browsing (mainly to figure out how the browser works): 29% battery left.

I'd buy a second battery but they aren't available.

You don't really want to know what I am thinking.
Yikes. I have one on the way. Doesn't sound like it will compete with my Galaxy S3 or 9900 (combination of both)
