I haven’t seen this in a while on especially on any of my devices with the Gorilla Glass technology, but this is really noticeable.  It might be that the quality of the Windows Phone 8X by HTC screen is not the Read more

But the day, which is this Monday November 7, 2011, Microsoft has a whole day planned in NYC to give Windows Phone a giant push.
