    ?Why have I given up on Windows Phone? Blame Verizon | ZDNet

    Last month my colleague Matt Miller wrote an impassioned column excoriating Microsoft for focusing on low-end devices for the international market and not building more flagship phones for American carriers.

    This was written in November:

    Bah Humbug: Microsoft's affordable smartphone strategy dashes hopes for a real flagship | ZDNet

    Summary:Microsoft has yet to launch a single flagship model across all major US wireless carriers in the history of Windows Phone. Their focus on the low- to mid-range market may be part of why Windows Phone market share remains low.

    Microsoft are you reading this?

    The HTC One M8 is a premium Windows Phone and it's available on 3 of the 4 major carriers.

    Well I don't think So. Microsoft may think instead focusing for flagship in US carrier they try to push lower end to the globe. Dude US maybe a big country but global market share is what really matters. If they could win in India, China, Indonesia, losing on US may not gonna be a problem. Well Microsoft have a good point pushing lower end phone now because flagship phone only affordable in US.

    Just try to Buy Lumia 1020 in Indonesia. I doubt you can

    I think by premium you're meaning "better than any phone ever" because there are some still pretty awesome windows phones out there right now...

    Good riddance. IMO he gave up on Windows Phone when you joined the Verge.

    I'd say give a little more time. This was just announced too and I think something good might come out of it.

    When he joined the Verge he did have to pay more attention to competing platforms and what they offer. I would definitely not say he gave up as soon as he joined them.

    I also don't think it's "good riddance" when one of your more prolific advocates bails. It's bad for business.

    I hate to say it but Tom is right. I am giving Windows phone 1 more freaking chance with Windows 10. The whole app argument isn't really a thing for me. In general I like the apps I have. I just want a premium device that people don't make fun of me over. Oh and giving me a 40 megpx camera with a killer design would probably do that just fine.
