    I kind of have only the phone since I avoid using the tablet because it struggles with every app, even Tapatalk or 9gag. But I agree "WP only" life can be hard, that's not the case with Android ;).

    You should look into a Nexus 7 or 10. They're great and the prices are not over the top for what they are. We own a Samsung tablet but I won't buy another one. Only Nexus gear or something that offers as pure an Android experience as possible.

    We also have a couple of cheaper tablets here now, one made by Tesco, 7" with some half decent specs on it. There's no intrusive skin on it either. At 99 it's not bad.

    That's fine. Nothing really shocks me or weirds me out. Trust me on that. :P

    So WP is doing pretty crap in Enterprise. How sad.

    iOS Drops to 67% Enterprise Share, Android Grows to 32%

    The execs are used to the big two platforms. What do you expect?

    I expect Win8.1 Tablets to eventually start helping marginally, at least.

    Well Nexus 10 is a bit old, it's not even sure if it's getting Android L. And Nexus 7 is a bit small. I would love to have the rumored Nexus 9 but 400 is quite a lot of money. I was eyeing the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 for 300 from DE. Another cheaper option would be LG GPad 10.1, but not for current prices. When price drops to 230 I might be interested :).
    Concerning cheap tablets, I'm not doing this again. Those Tesco tablets are probably just renamed cheap Chinese tablets, and I have one of them and believe me, I'm not buying it again. Branded or nothing. It was good for first 2 or 3 months but after that period everything went down the hill.

    There were too many issues with WP and other enterprise solutions which didn't allow WP to work properly with them. That's a big mistake on MS part. Nothing to do with execs and their preferences. It's kind of hard for a IT professional to push for a particular phone when it doesn't work with the infrastructure.

    Well technically they're all cheap Chinese tablets.... :P

    The Tesco one was designed specifically for Tesco to their specs. It got some decent reviews for general use but most wouldn't use it for intensive gaming. Still if a 7" is too small it's not for you anyway.

    Yes I can see MIA making statements...

    WP8.1 solved some problems, though. The problem is that it ended up causing a few of its own.

    Once again, we play the waiting game.
    Threshold will solve some, not all, problems. Calling it now!

    It's almost a little late for WP to get into the enterprise. It should have been a focus of theirs from the initial release. I personally think they missed an opportunity. Apple and now Android are taking over.

    They should've just shoveled full WinRT onto Windows Phone from the very start. Now, they've wasted two years combining WinPRT and WinRT.

    It's been roughly (insert period of time) since I got onboard with Windows Phone.

    Nothing has happened.

    ...

    And here I was, expecting something to happen.

    Regardless of that, they should have had a phone that worked with enterprise right from the start. It should have been their main focus and the 'entertainment' side should have been the extra. Not the other way around. If they had done that WP would be in most companies now.

    They tried the iOS approach. What do you expect?

    I messed with Cortana a couple of times. I set it up to use in the UK but haven't bothered with it since. Unless you have some overwhelming need for it other than the 'neat' factor, it's rather pointless.

    Yes I know, that's why they failed miserably and why WP sits at 5% market share. :P

    I checked this Hudl(funny name :D ) tablet. Screen is quite good nu as said processor is Chinese, not so bad if it's MediaTek but it could also be RocketChip which isn't very good. But it's cool tablet for the price.

    Yeah there were some jokes about the name but it's for the idea of 'huddling' together... not sure how one does that with a 7" tablet...

    Here's a good review of it - Tesco Hudl tablet review - Specs, performance, comparisons and camera quality (Wired UK)

    They Hudl 2 will be out this year sometime.

    Hard reset after the update. That's the only way to fix it. I thought all the 925s got the official update already...
    The shots were fine on Cyan. I'm delaying doing a hard rest, that's why.
