Microsoft Lumia 920 looks cool

Microsoft and Nokia recently unveiled the Lumia 920, which on face value, seems like a pretty good device. It boasts a dual core 1.5 GHz CPU, awesome camera, a nifty wireless charger (its pretty cool, but seems to add little value in my opinion), an apparently sharp display and to top it off, I personally like how the device looks. Its scheduled to be released later on this year though, presumably to avoid competing with the iPhone 5. It is a step in the right direction, but the main problem with Windows devices are apps.

Until Microsoft beef up their appstore, I personally don't see why people would go for a Microsoft device. Actually, the way I see it, its not about the number of apps, but rather, the number of good, free, apps. I really hope Microsoft are cognizant of this. The day they "fix" their appstore (and their dev framework) will be the day I'll start taking them as serious players in the smartphone market.
