    @Sharzam Try Podcatcher for your podcasts, does a pretty good job. I'm beta testing something else even better but it won't be available too soon :)

    Lumia 620 reviews are starting to come out and are very positive. They need to be selling well though.

    @Peew971

    yes i found a third party app for it so not an issue just that annoyed ne with integration of it. 'go to the store, oh but we don't support it here'
    .Regards android, google doesn't actually have a podcast store ,but any app can just hook into google reader.

    More positive note: Xbox Music is rather good, might actually rival Spotify. Does help i have Windows 8 as well.

    @Sharzam The irony is Microsoft came up with the music subscription model way before Spotify, Rdio and the likes. Zune Pass (now Xbox Music Pass) was released way back in 2006 but unsurprisingly Microsoft messed up really bad with that.

    Yeah, I like it, but as a non-W8 user, it means I can only use it via my phone and Xbox. Not ideal for work. Where the fuck is the Spotify app? :/

    It took over a year for Spotify to release a (pretty shit) WP7 client, so I wouldn't hold your breath :(

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Microsoft had announced an Xbox Music app for both iOS and Android. When this will come though is still an unknown.

    Can anyone recommend a good low-cost music player for WP8? I don't like the native one, and I'm not interested in streaming music - I'm playing from the SD.

    @asphaltcowboy The software to sync WP8 with Windows 7 is abysmmal! Why they stopped supporting Zune Marketplace, God only knows! That solution was fine and was better than iTunes to boot.

    Spotify for WP8 is out today. If you can't find it or get a download error, give it a few more hours :)

    @asphaltcowboy agreed. However I find it odd that you passed on Windows 8 for just 25. Even if you don't like the new interface, with something like Start8 you barely notice the difference.

    @Peew971 Well, I only really have a notebook atm (running Windows 7 Starter). Can I even get Win8 running on that? Didn't really seem like it was worth it? And at work we have Win7.

    @sport Dammit! I talked myself out of buying one last week! Now this happens! Stop tempting me again!

    EDIT: Thanks to sport, I now have one of these in my grubby mitts. Just couldn't resist! No doubt the wife will annex it though.

    So who has a 920? Is it all that you dreamed it would be? Anyone moved from a GS3?

    Please do tell. March arrives!

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    @mcmonkeyplc It's a superb piece of kit and now that you're outside of the initial production run, you should get one that doesn't fill up with dust after a week of it being in your pocket.

    Thanks Tricky. I don't think I'm going to bother waiting for Samsung to unveil the Galaxy s4. It's still going to be android and I'm bored of that now.

    Where's the best place to get an unlocked phone?

    I'm interested too!

    As expected, the wife assumed ownership of the 620, so I'm still on the lookout for a new phone. Much as I'd like a 920 with all it's camera goodness, I'm hoping the new 720 will be more in my price range (and do a similar job).

    How's the 620? Couldn't get it in the end as some unexpected expenses came up.

    Looks really nice!

    ... I was a little bit shocked to watch the video on the Lumia 720 page because the girl (in the video) is scarily and uncannily similar to who I used to be with when I only just started out working upon leaving Sixth Form.

    Just as gorgeous in the video too!

    My wife's 620 arrived today. It lovely, a really good piece of kit (bar the MicroSD slot, whose metal bracket seems like it'll break easily), almost lovely enough to make me jealous and go after a HTC 8X for myself. But then, I see that for 2 a month more than the 8X and 19 up front I can have the Xperia Z, and suddenly any tech jealousy melts.
