Everything I tried seemed to be a little rough with unfinished pieces, but at the end of the day, Angular Material Design (http://material.angularjs.org) won out for mobile development by a long shot over Mobile Angular UI (http://mobileangularui.com) and UI Bootstrap (http://angular-ui.github.io/bootstrap.) That being said, if a client's main site is already Bootstrap-based then one of the other two would be more suitable.

Windows Phone 8 builds are typically locked to a very specific hardware profile; it would be interesting to see if you could take a standard One M8 and flash WP8 into it. It would certainly take some doing, and might involve a violation of the DMCA. However, if I can pitch a hardware platform to someone with the tagline of "Run whatever the heck you want on this, the software and hardware manufacturers really don't care", that's a plus.
Current WAMP related shopping list: PHP5, XDebug, Laravel, MySQL, phpMyAdmin, WordPress, SQLite, Apache. Also do a lot of JS work (PhoneGap etc) so extra packages like node.js would be a bonus. FYI I also run a Microsoft stack on the same dev boxes... .NET, C#, SQL Server, Visual Studio. Tend to use Aptana Studio 3 as WAMP IDE since I still use Eclipse for Android.
Yikes, what a mess. Another good reason to abstract with a common library to handle some of these cross-browser compatibility issues.
