I just bought a lumia 920 for me and my wife after hearing the 2 month delay for z10 getting to the states. I wanted to compare the 2 before buying but with the big delay made my mind up. I have been jonesing for a nokia 920 for a while, but using blackberry i wanted to wait until the "10"s came out. So far the 920 has not disappointed me or my wife; awesome phone! Although, i do not know how to utilize 90% of it but that is why I'm here and for another ( several ) posts. What i do not understand is the competition between bb and wp. Neither have a lot of users, but both have very powerful unique OS(don't kid yourself, BB10 is impressive). Peeling off users from apple a android makes much more sense. I see a future were bb and wp are up around 1 and 2 in sells, not fighting for scraps. I remember when the iphone came out apple was told to stick with computers and bb was the giant. Just 2 cents from a NEW WP USER! Thanks in advance for all your knowledge and advise that I am going to benefit from!

As far as I know, and have (not) seen, Windows/Microsoft has never had any sort of marketing strategy where they are trying to "steal" users and badmouth other manufacturers.
I may have, subconsciously, ignored such marketing and that may be cause of some ignorance caused by my pure love for WP 7.X/8 and Windows OS in general.
Anyway, welcome aboard! This is definitely the right place/forum to get help!

The 920 is a great phone so I don't blame you, I'm just wondering why you couldn't hold out just a little longer.

I don't see the ribbing that Nokia made towards Blackberry as "going after" them.
It's Nokia making good use of marketing for cheap.
One of the things social media marketers want to do to increase the reach of their messages is to relate it to a current event. Any significant product launch or announcement is an event that they will want to comment on.
If anything, it's a compliment. The BB launch is seen as important enough.

The top 2 smartphone platforms are set - Apple and Android. Everyone else is fighting for relevancy at 3rd. When #3 is settled, the market may decide it doesn't need a #3. I'm rooting for WP, but I see an uphill battle.
