    Microsoft's Windows OS is a very success for the Mobile, computer and laptop. Windows phones are add so many applications but personally I don't like Windows mobile phone. I am always using android phone.

    After buying a Nokia N9 a couple of days ago I think it's a shame that Nokia abandoned MeeGo. They should have kept it on the side. Just saying.

    Jolla will continue that work though. I'm as interested in that system now as of what MS/Nokia they will do with WP8. If not more actually.

    Ha come on!! What about Symbian while you're at it. And "Windows Mobile with a skin" like I've read several times. Nokia was in dire need of another direction and identity. Windows Phone has given them just that. MeeGo is just a tech oriented mind's wet dream. If people want "open" and screw around with their devices, there's already Android for that.

    Anyways, it just makes sense to me that WP will gain marketshare drastically in the upcoming two years. The vast majority of mobile phone buyers are NOT tech oriented and A LOT of them have been fed Android devices that will lag, that are plagued with slow overlays and bugs. Sure Android can run fine if you root and put a custom rom on it, but let's face it, your average user isn't going to do that. I'm telling you the Android fad will die off as surprisingly as it rose. The vast majority of mobile phone buyers are NOT tech oriented and just want something that is easy to use and works out of the box. WP is beating every competitor in this department. People also want familiar apps and entertainment and the move to WP8 is meant to provide just that. Add carrier support and I don't see why people are even doubting.

    As for WP7.8, people make such a big deal out of nothing. Obsolete device? Refunds? Dead phone? Seriously?!?! The math is simple. You bought a Lumia in, say April 2012. WP8 will be released in November 2012. That's already 7 months on a 2 year contract (30%). It will take at least a year for WP8 to get a significant enough marketshare that developers will stop supporting WP7 - why would anyone write an app that only a handful of people can use? Sure you may miss out on a few games, but your phone would not have run them anyways. That's 19 months or 80% of your 2 year contract. Early upgrade and you're golden. Who keeps a device 2 years now anyways?

    I'm really tired of semi-troll posts on a forum that should be the total opposite. I understand doubt and questions, but we've had dozens of these threads already.

    ...time to go to bed... ;)

    I'm not semi-trolling. Just telling you my thoughts. How is that trolling? I like WP as much as MeeGo. They are just totally different systems. Both very easy to use.

    MeeGo could have been the new identity. But they scrapped it before release. You could say the same thing about Windows Phone. Do we need another locked down system like iPhone? Your argument fails. MeeGo is not as open as Android. It's in between Android and WP. It's the fastest system to work with and has better multitasking than Android. In other words it's a very fine system that they abandoned. I'm not faithful to one system only. Why should I when I can get the best of two or more worlds.

    But of course... I'm a troll in saying this.

    As long as people like us keep spreading the word and showing people that the phone is viable, it will have a future. People are more apt to stay away from what they don't know. I show people and I see people staring. I'd be happy to go on walk people through the device.

    I was at the gym last night and I saw a man with a Lumia 900. I ask him what he likes about his phone. he had a list of things he liked. The only thing he didn't like what the way the tiles weren't customizable....and thats it. (yes customizable is not a word) I think once WP8 comes out and they start making better advertisement that actually show tidbits on how you get information from the device, people will start buying into it more. It's not too late for the WP platform, but if this WP8 thing doesn't strike gold a year after it's release, then I believe it's bye bye. But I don't think that will happen. I think MS has invested too much time and effort and money into making this thing work and kudos to them.

    I wasn't saying you're a troll, I was referring to the nature of the thread.

    As for Meego, I stand behind what I said. WP has a way stronger identity than MeeGo and helps Nokia differentiate its offering. On top of that, having Microsoft behind them can only mean they WILL succeed.

    Well I really have no doubts that WP will succeed because it is that good and deserves it.
