    I think starter smart phones are a good idea ... but the X is going to be a failure. This article sums it up:

    Why Microsoft Needs to Embrace Android with More Than the Nokia X | Digital Trends

    IMHO ... the only reason the X was developed by Nokia ... to force Microsoft into buying Nokia at a premium price. After the MS merger, I would not be surprised if the X ... is X'ed

    It seems like people want a world full of android phones. Maybe not here on wpcentral but I'm looking at other tech blogs and I'm utterly disgusted with how many people seem to essentially want everyone to just make an android phone and calling for nokia/Microsoft to go all in with android phones.

    If Apple gave manufacturers licenses to use their OS in 2006/2007 when the rise of smartphones was happening, a lot of people might've wanted every new smartphone run their OS. I think news websites other than company-specific sites (like Mobile Nations') have a purposeful bias to attract more readers than usual and generate more ad revenue. Before Android started to become popular and overtake IOS, websites like CNET, to me at least, always seemed to have more posts about Apple and to slightly promote their products. With Windows Phone set to gain something like 17% of the market by 2017, the bias might slightly shift to Windows Phone or whatever it'll called since Windows, Xbox, and WP will have become one OS by then.

    Keeping the thread on topic, how many WP rumors have there been which have never been made? If there have only been a few out of the total number of rumors, maybe there could be a chance the 1820 could be a phone sometime before the year ends.
