re: Nokia Lumia 920: Close, But No Cigar
You can search for installed apps. From the home screen, flip to the left and at the top of the list is a magnifying glass. Click on that and search away. You don't have to scroll if you don't want to.

As far as the tiles, I find it easier to find what I am looking for-- especially since I can control the size of the tiles; making the more used items larger and near the top. I do agree that too many live tiles can busy up the screen-- my only suggestion is to use the smallest tile for those apps where you don't need the animation.

I have one of these phones after being a Blackberry user for 7+ years and I am optimistic about the progress that MSFT has made in device agnostic. I found this device easier to use the first time than my iPad-- more due to my analytical brain. The integration to social networking and live.com is effortless and makes it very easy for my wife and I to share calendars. Of course, that is what we were looking for, not apps that waste our time.

Just my two cents worth...
