    I can see why he says that. It hasn't done particularly well, it's unproven, and it is a hit or miss with the people. Now I will say that he is part of the problem. Let the people decide if they want them. Get top devices on your company and advertise them well and see what happens from there.

    Saying Windows 8 won't succeed is just stupid though... Microsofts OS'es are defacto standard...

    Are they talking about Windows 8 or WP8?

    WOW! That seems incredibly short sighted, and seems to lack a fundamental understanding of the ways things are going.

    EPIC FAIL!

    the problem is that bells CEO is a EX MIcrosft CEO...

    so what he was saying ( explaining) is:

    that when the MS reps came to see him to pich him WP , he was basicly saying.. no no, thats BS , i use to work for Microsft and what ur saying is not true.... then told them to leave...

    problem is :he was CEO 3-4 years ago.... **** changes.. and i think hes making a UGE mistake!!!!


    99% of the new phones commign are ANDROID :( and BELL just got a MASSIVE deal with *RIM* to advertise RIM on the bell network.for all of Q1 ( to help RIM come out of there hole)

    SIDE NOTE: Iphone 5 is comming SOON! ;) ..... and BB OS 10 is comming in september ;)

    Very disappointing. Holding out hope for Rogers, then. Maybe we'll all wind up on Telus! :P

    That is really upsetting, my girlfriend and I went to Bell the other day cause she wants to switch from her BB to a WP, when she mentioned she was looking into getting a WP the Bell employee said "Oh, like an android?". I faceplamed. Hopefully she will like BB 10 so she doesn't have to get an Android.

    If the Bell CEO continues to be this short sighted, "For Whom the Bell Tolls" will be Bell. Even if he didn't believe in WP, why would he make such a damaging statement publicly? All he's doing is burning bridges.
