But for entertainment and navigation it cannot be beat. Fits into your shirt pocket and can run your music, videos, PowerPoint shows etc. Office 365 comes with it for free. Lot's of other toys like games, music stations, etc. Add a MicroSD card and you are in business. Kari made some forum apps so that you can easily connect.
Thanks Wolfgang, I just bought one. Expect to see a barrage of questions.
Sure, any time Steve. But I am no W8P expert, just a casual user. I found it to be easy to setup but there are a few caveats and a few must have programs. Here is a thread I have started on the 8-forum that gives a report about my experience and a lot of valuable input from real W8P experts.

My first days with a Windows 8 phone

PS: Make sure you have a MicroSD card handy. I use a 32GB model but it takes up to 64GB. Size will depend on how much data you want to carry. Music an videos do well. The little speaker is quite good.

That's correct, any license at the moment. I even have a "spare" XP key.

But this would be useless for me since I only buy prebuilt computers and I can't install OEMs on those.

You can install OEM licenses on any computer. I do that all the time.

You can't use the SLP to activate, you need the key on the COA sticker.
