Seeing that Samsung and HTC both make Win 8 phones, I would say that MS isn’t exactly paying others to make their phones. They Just paid one of them to ensure that they had something good at launch.

This is a mid/low end phone. The 920 is the high end phone. Seeing that the success of Android is that it has phones for every market segment (as opposed to Apples high-end only), this seems to be exactly what’s needed to help WP8 compete against Android.

I think that platform will win single product in huge majority of cases. That is why Google is having such success with Android - they are basically doing DOS/Windows thing in mobile world.

I am hoping WP8 will manage to repeat formula.
