    And by that, I mean any tech company - based on anything - past experiences with them, reputation etc.

    Personally, I'd like to see what Panasonic could do.

    Panasonic bought Sanyo, and they have a few low end phones out.

    Dell and Samsung are my favorite hardware companies, and they've already had their hand in WP. I know Dell is stepping out of the market for now, but I do hope they'll come back with some offerings at some point.

    Microsoft. That surface concept was downright inducing!

    Edit: I think that may be the 1st time I've been censored in this forum. Ok rephrase to "extremely sexy, to the point of physical arousal". Sorry, mods. Didn't know there was a line there. No hard feelings?

    From a sheer hardware perspective, I wouldn't mind seeing what they could do as well.

    It would be the same as last year, but with a new QC issue. And it would cost $300 more than its closest competitor.

    At least if it were a WP8 device, it would have a compelling OS. While iOS is a very solid OS, it has definitely lost a lot of its appeal for quite a few people, myself included.

    Ya, cause Apple is the only company that recycles designs and has QC issues. The 900 was a rehash of the N9, had data connection issues at launch, and camera issues as well.

    Anyway, Dell or Apple. I have said for the past year and a half that 4-4.1" is the perfect screen size, and Dell and Apple seem to agree with me on that. Plus, as far as Dell is conserned, I think portrait sliders are great.

    And a useable location service. :) But ultimately Apple's elitist attitude, high price and low quality would dilute the brand.

    At least Nokia tries to make good on the flaws with support and rebates instead of blaming the user and minimizing the issue. And they priced aggressively. Anyway I agree that it would be nice to see Dell return to the fold.

    Sony for their hardware design. Asus for innovative form factors. Microsoft as they did well with the Surface. Motorola as I will love a 3300mAh battery for my phone.

    My point is more that all manufacturers have Qc Issues and recycle designs. I challenge you to find a manufacturer who hadn't had these issues and had every single phone look different from every other phone.

    Motorola. Their phones usually have good antennas. Also, Sony, so we could have both Xbox and PS games on the same device.

    I understand your point. Show me another company with a 350% markup with this many issues, and the same smug attitude about those QC issues.
