    Not from I've read. It still has a billion & one restrictions...

    No customization & many limitations, not interested in ANYTHING from Microsoft.

    Too early to say how it is going to be.
    iOS is restrictive,Android has no limitations..maybe W8 will be something in the middle with a good security...
    And as a personal impresion i had for hours a Nokia with W7.5 and liked it..
    Let's hope for the best for this new generation of Windows phones.

    Same. One can only hope it's gonna be good...

    The last Windows OS I used on the mobile which I actually liked was 6.5

    It wasn't restrictive, bluetooth could be used to send & receive files from any device, apps could be copied, pasted & installed, etc...

    That's just the internal Windows CE and build number. It's still Windows Phone 7.5 until Windows Phone 7.8 replaces that.

    WP7 gives you the ability to disable cellular data so the phone doesn't use data if you don't need it to (an option my Android phone lacked). I have a 1GB data plan shared between 2 smartphones so I understand the need to manage data useage.

    Tell your brother to download "Connectivity Shortcut" and pin it to his start screen. Makes it easy to control network connections. Also, WP7 checks email every 30mins by default. Disabling cellular data stops it and saves on data.
