    I haven't got to the wearables thing yet. I know my wife wanted something at one point but WP didn't support it so she kind of gave up on the idea. Maybe once WP does she may look into it again. There's only Fitbit at the moment right?

    I'm not in a hurry for a new phone until next year. I'll give them the rest of the year to sort things out. I've mentioned this in the past. I have my tablet now so I'm quite happy with the dual OS situation and since I can connect my table to my work's wifi it's a great alternative to my phone at work for doing things. My phone btw doesn't connect to my work's wifi and it would appear they have no plans to allow to either.

    So at the moment I am happy. There are no phones out there that I am interested in at this moment in time on any OS. So I am simply waiting.
    It is so ironic that at my workplace a WP is easy to connect and use but you need to sign a special form to use an Android device. From a WiFi standpoint both my phone and tablet connect to it without issues.

    My annoyance at WP and MS in general is that they haven't focused enough on getting developers on board and keeping them happy.

    Then they also have the issue with the constant changes to the OS. Though this is a good thing it shows how far behind it was and that it's in a constant state of flux. It has the ability to turn the developers off and get them to 'wait' to either update apps they already have or not bother until they feel the OS is up to scratch. Like the official Instagram app for example.

    All changes cost money, devs have to weigh this things up.
    For having only 2.5% of the market share the monetization numbers for WP are pretty impressive.

    The just brought in a certificate system for devices but WP is still not in the mix. I'm guessing they just don't see the need. iPhones are planned to replace the current BB and I guess Android had an easy solution that worked with our infrastructure where WP didn't.

    There are still many who are trying to bypass the pay for an app situation and block ads. Many people want their apps for free. That's why there's been such a big interest in jailbreaking WP for those who want it. Aside from the thinking it will open the system up for them it will also allow 'black market' apps to run. In most cases bootleg versions of real apps.

    Well if I want something like a fit bit I would use it on the 830 if it was already out . Obviously I wouldn't buy because I wouldn't be able to use it on my 810. Once I'm out of college I wouldn't get it because I wouldn't have a need for it

    What's your need for a wearable now that's different than when you graduate? I'm confused. Do you plan not to exercise or do anything energetic once you're out of school? You're going to turn into a fat slob or something? :P

    I'm not sure how things work here 100% as I don't have a work phone and I don't think they've replaced all the BB yet. I haven't heard any complaints but then I don't know anyone with a phone.

    We have all the platforms supported. Mostly its iPhone, followed by Android and a few folks using WP. Also they provide a work line on any carrier. I don't want a new line and a new phone so I did the BYOD thing and based on my research it was the easiest to bring a WP and sync up with work stuff and sandbox it without them knowing anything about my personal email etc and that is how I jumped ship from Android to WP and also started on WPC.

    I'm not entirely sure of the infrastructure they have in place here but my guess would be that WP isn't on it simply because there's no demand or it doesn't have a compatible system for it. I think our IT did look into things at one point and found the WP would be too much of a pain so went with iOS.

    It's when I hear stories like that it's what makes me wonder what MS was thinking when they brought WP8 out. I know they were trying to get the iPhone crowd but ignoring your biggest current customers was a huge mistake.
