Nokia Not Bringing Counters To WP8

In a rather shocking response to a question asked a thousand times before, a Nokia rep on twitter revealed that the company's usage monitoring App, Counters, will not be made available for Windows Phone 8 devices.

While far from crucial, Counters allowed users to keep tabs on their voice, text and data usage. For those users on completely unlimited plans, Counters served as a gentle reminder of how much, or little, that big dollar plan was being used. For those using a new Lumia on a prepaid option or limited post paid plan, Counters enabled a strict monitoring of your usage. Either way Counters was a great addition to your Windows Phone 7.x device.

On the positive side, it appears that the end may be in sight for Verizon Wireless' exclusive Data Sense deal. The representative continued on to state that Data Sense would be replacing Counters, and they would let us know when that feature would be enabled. Bad news, good news? Possibly, but at least for now we can stop asking about it.
