Nokia Talks Trash About Android, Apple; Won't Fully Launch WP7 Till 2012

Chris Weber isn't afraid to talk a bit of smack about Android and Apple who he calls "outdated". Despite not selling a single WP7 handset he claims to be "way ahead" of them.
Nokia is making the difficult transition from selling full price unlocked phones to selling carrier-subsidized (discounted) locked models. That's the primary reason why Nokia's full-scale WP7 launch has been delayed until 2012.

Nokia struggles to differentiate itself from other WP7 manufacturers, but hopes for strong 2012

Christmas? I'll be into my second long term Android contract by then, and I actually want a WP7 phone. Sadly, there are all of 3 different WP7 phones available in the UK and they are pretty average now.
I just don't get the analysts who say that WP7 will be the great force that it will be, when there are so few handset available and a lot of people are locked into long term Android or iPhone contracts.

"I just don't get the analysts who say that WP7 will be the great force that it will be..."
You call them "analysts", microsoft calls them "astroturfers". Explains everything.
Funny thing is, I really like most of what I've read about win7CE (aka "WP7") except that it's made by microsoft -- they have an abominably poor history as an "online services provider" (think hotmail, sidekick/danger, playsfersherr, etc) so there's no chance I'll ever trust them with my data, regardless of how tempting the new system may be. Probably there are millions of people who feel the same way at this point.
