    Hi Guys. I got a question is HTC the Wp version of the Nexus and Nokia is like the Moto OEM.

    Nokia is Windows phone only. only while Motorola is Android only. Similarities? they both have strong relationships with Big Companies. Nokia = Microsoft and Motorola = Google

    HTC and the Nexus. HTC has the signature Windows phone device. meaning it has the Windows phone branding a the front calling it the Windows phone 8X/8S and it;s designed from MS and HTC together. is it basically the Nexus of Windows phone. But Nexus is clearly from Samsung (Changing though) the Nexus name has the Nexus name on the product. Similarities? Samsung and HTC both use Google or Microsoft designed Phones (yes MS also designed the 8X and the 8S) and they both have names from their strong company alliance. Get what I mean now

    So yea. Is Nokia the Motorola of Windows phone and is HTC's Windows phones the Wp version of the Nexus's?

    Another link between Nokia and Moto: they both are OG phone makers, and as such, make devices with top-notch call quality and reception.

    It might be, but in the end it won't matter and it certainly won't influence sales.

    I wouldn't put it that way as the Nexus brand goes to different OEMs each time anyway and this is the first time Microsoft has said anything about a Signature phone.

    Also, Nokia, despite having quite a number of ex-MS staff, isn't a MS division, so they aren't the Motorola equal of MS either.

    Microsoft doesn't give a **** about these OEMS. They need all of them to sell their phones. IF you think they care about one more than the other you are ignorant.

    The lumia will easily outsell the 8X/8S though.

    I wouldn't be so quick as to claim the 920 will outsell the 8X, especially if the 920 is expensive and limited edition. In the USA, Nokia is a long dead brand, while HTC remains current, as well.
