Galaxy Nexus vs. Lumia 710 in Smartphone Madness Today, You Know What to Do

The Windows Phone blogs have made it their goal to advance as many of their phones into Laptop Mag’s Smartphone Madness as they possibly can.

Today, we do our part in making that journey as difficult as possible (again) by knocking off another Windows Phone.
