quote: An alternative that NOBODY is buying outside of the Nokia 520/521 in third world countries?
quote: Again re-read my statement and go look at the numbers.
quote: Again, that marketshare growth is entirely because of the 520/521, just like I said!
quote: Are you honestly saying that if, say the Galaxy S3 and Note II are banned next Spring (which I expect it will be, unfortunately) that Samsung won't at least consider switching its entry level U.S. product to Windows Phone?
quote: Android won market share by first attacking the budget end.
quote: it's hard to have a competitively priced Android to face off against the 520/521.
quote: And now that it/Nokia (+ Apple) have pushed HTC into money losses, HTC should either switch to Windows Phone or go under. Either way Microsoft should gain sales.
quote: But hey, whatever, I'm sure Microsoft would be fine if you're right and Android continues to dominate. It makes more off Android still. Heck, it's expected to get a few billion in licensing fees from Samsung alone this year.
quote: such a big issue with Windows Phone. It's because Microsoft didn't fight Apple! They sided with them, formed an alliance with them, and teamed up against Android OEM's. I will NEVER forgive them for that.
