    Looks like VZW may have retired the Icon. And you winder why I don't want a US carrier branded phone. The 930/Icon is a good phone but launched in a time where it may be not have been set up for success.

    ^this looks like it might suffer the same fate as the 810 . Let's see the similarities
    1) carrier exclusive -check
    2) marketing push from Verizon -check

    Yeah that's that what I can i think of right now

    This is what I don't like about exclusives . The whole reason of exclusives is so the oems makes the phone to how the said carrier wants it to be . In tern the oem lets the carrier take responsibility for the phone ( as in fix the devices if they break ) and market them but the carrier choses if it fails or not >.> .

    Well, WP seems to be a slowly dying platform...maybe more of an atrophied state than a full death.

    It seems to be stagnating at the high end with potential growth at the low end and in the long term that will be a problem.

    huh a quick observation I made about my 830. so I was playing with recording a video and to test out the OIS( not sure how to test that) . I first used the stock camera from msft. I noticed that it doesn't auto focus and it doesn't change the white balance fast enough but the main thing was that it records in mono not in stereo. I got worried that I got a defected phone so I went to use the nokia pro cam and did the same test and I noticed that it preformed much much better and it used all 3 mics instead of one.

    Cardio doesn't increase muscle mass it tones. :P Cardio is good for the heart and muscle. To put into perspective the difference, look at a bike rider compared to weight lifter.

    That is the issue at the moment. WP is attractive to the low end market, especially the developing countries, thanks to Nokia. It's understandable why MS would want to keep them happy as they have a good developers program going on in most those countries. Whereas in the developed countries, developers seem to sticking their nose up at WP.

    Whether WP can become more mainstream really rests with how they can make developing attractive for developers. They obviously haven't done it yet. Whether W10 has the potential is questionable at this stage. If they would have released WP8, W8 and WRT as cross platform then maybe things would be different. I'm not sure about their marathon thinking. Lots of people seem to think MS has a bottomless pit of money and think that shareholders and market share mean nothing.

    They'll be in the market of course. So will RIM (still refuse to call it Blackberry). Will both have large market shares? Hell no. But they'll still offer consumers something as a decent alternative option. What folks forget is that those low ended and low mid range people don't necessarily use apps unless it is the uber popular stuff. So unless MSFT address that, they'll be a niche played with Crackberry-ish rabid supporters.
