    I think with all the new WP features in that area along with Windows on tablets and ultrabooks, the Enterprise is an area they will continue to dominate for quite some time. IT depts. that aren't already heavily using other platforms will eat it up for it's ease of integrating into their existing environments. (Windows, Active Directory, Office, Outlook, etc.)
    No doubt we are super excited for Surfaces and Lumias can't wait

    The last two pitfalls I see for a succesful WP 8 launch:

    1) As mentioned a few times: Hero devices. Flagships. Something to get people excited. Here is where the relationship with Nokia is so vital. HTC has already announced it is repacking their One series with WP, and Sammy is rumored to bring it to GS3 devices and maybe a Note-style Phablet. Those are fine efforts and great hardware, but not unique to WP 8. Nokia will be leading the original, only WP 8, top notch devices. Rumors include a pureview device, upgraded 900- style device in more color options, even physical keyboard devices. That is what is needed.

    2) Promote. Push. Advertise. Announce. Exclaim. Bribe. Strong arm. Rent planes with banners, billboards that talk, clowns, water-skiing squirrels, laser light shows, the Rockettes, the Chippendales, whatever else can be thought of. Hire unpopular celebreties to talk about how much they love the iPhone. Link Android to the New Black Panthers and the KKK. Whatever it takes to get publicity and interest to WP 8 and Windows 8 ecosystems.

    2013 is shaping up to be a very, very important year for us WP Geeks.....

    I need a Windows phone this fall I can't wait until November.. If so iPhone 5 will take over corporate.

    I can push Windows all I want but at the end of the day I need atleast 2 weeks of testing with WP8 and RT before I can push it out.

    It's not that big medium sized I must say. It's just I am really going for my 1 ecosystem vision and the more longer I have to wait the more chances that isn't going to happen.

    I'm well Bell so hopefully they get some cool things coming in soon. I expect September/October release!
