    Samsung developing Windows Phone devices is just a waste of man power. They're simply too invested in Android to bother with any other phone OS. And besidse, the Ativ line was a joke that no one really desired. Nokia is really the only company that has any business working on a WP line. Although I am curious to see what Sony can bring after seeing last years Xperia line.

    Maybe... maybe not. There's still a hole in the mobile market that blackberry has left behind, and that's the business crowd. Right now business are using a lot of Apple devices, but they won't play well with the PCs in the office. Android works great on it's own, but like Apple, you have to find the right apps to make your device do what you want. MS, however is starting to join business with small gadgets. The surface pro is the first example of this and it's a great combo work/play tablet w/ Office on it.

    Look at computing across all platforms for businesses. Apple owns Mobile, but has little presence in PCs. Google owns Mobile and only has gmail. MS has Office, and excel is probably the most important thing on a business's PC. But MS has a small mobile presence. If they can expand mobile, they're in the position to be the best option for businesses and even older students.

    Really? Now what makes you say that?
     
  6. Hi,
    With XP about to be unsupported corporate IT is transitioning to Windows 7 or 8, and unless legacy systems prevent it they will go with the newer version. The windows phones work well and having a common interface with PC and phone makes it easier. Added to that Windows phone growth has come at Apple's expense in South America and Italy more so than Samsung/ Android.
    I'd say its a smart move.
