    Plus you have to use iOS which I can't imagine anyone really thinks is a good OS other than as an app launcher.
    That's a good point. IOS is really an app launcher when you think about it. That's one of the things I LOVE about WP... It is truly mute of an OS. Like the way it integrates and does things. An example being how Cortana reminds me that I need to leave now for an event or reminds me to pick up X when I go to Target.

    I cant lie. It does look pretty sweet though. In fact, 8 talked an older co worker who had android into an iPhone 6 Plus. She had an iPhone before and figured it would be the best thing for her (she would always complain about the complexity of Android...she was just use to iPhone and not tech savvy).

    That price though stopped me right in my tracks. I just can't justify that much money for a phone. I cant!

    Allow me to kick this off by saying that I love love love MS products. I have a SP3 that i wouldn't part with for anything. I love Nokia products. In fact it was Nokia (and hence WP)that got me back into the MS camp a few years back. When I first used WP back then the OS was minimalistic, user friendly, and just unique. Now its so android-like and from what I'm reading on this site, W10 is not going to change that.

    Its IOS that now seems to be the minimalist alternative. I've never owned an iphone but what I appreciate about IOS is that Apple knows exactly what it is and doesn't change it for anything. The dominance of Android and the slight emergence of WP doesn't matter to Apple. IOS is not changing and for minimalists...that's great. I cant believe it either....for the first time im actually thinking about switching to IOS. Why?

    As a MS enthusiast IOS literally has everything I need now...partially thanks to MS. Nadella might be increasing MS market share by allowing MS software on IOS but all that means is that I can switch without pain. Office, onenote, and all those goodies (even maybe cortana) is there.

    Second, I'm tired of not having the latest apps. True WP has great 3rd party apps. But I'm tired of a Netflix app that won't work and an ESPN app that is buggy, etc. Overall, I just want access to the apps that everybody else has access too (stores, stadiums, etc.) I don't care if I don't use them right now...i might if I had the chance. Every commercial or store I walk into has an app that doesn't support WP. You know its bad when I visited a church's website last year and was excited that they had an app for WP. Why was that exciting? It should be the norm.

    Brining this to a close...the only thing I'm certain I would miss is the camera, Cortana (who is coming to IOS), audio text messages on my bluetooth, and a perhaps something else I'm not thinking of right now.

    I'm on a cliff here somebody stop me! Give me some good reasons to stay on board. Really I want them.
