quote: iPhone, then Android, made Microsoft phones look archaic and it's taken them waaay too long to try to get back in the game with a serious offering. Coming from so far behind being just good is not good enough, Microsoft has to produce something that leapfrogs the competition, which their current offerings don't, and I can't see them doing that (maybe they will surprise).
quote: Consider nearly every Android device I have ever owned, 5 so far, has had a limited life span on upgrading the OS. Now consider Every Single Windows Phone will be able to Upgrade to Windows Phone 8 OS without having to buy a new device.
quote: That just made every Android device I ever bought a waste of money while the Windows Phone device will get an extended life when Windows 8 comes along.
quote: This move by Microsoft is why they will win a lot of people tired of having to refresh good hardware just to get the new OS.
