Crudbucket: I'm planning to buy a Windows 8 phone and tablet when they come out next month, assuming there's not some horrible details that come out between now and then.
Fuggin Bizzy: I don't pay a whole lot of attention to the sales figures, so I'm a little surprised to see "Google" (presumably Android devices) outselling "Apple" (presumably iPhone). Most smartphone owners I know use iPhones. My fellow programmers and I tend to have Android devices.Huh.
hitmanric: I love my mango 7.5. No problems at all.
State_College_Arsonist: Eh, I think Microsoft is only out to gain a foothold in the market while preparing for more powerful x86 SoCs to come out.
MrEricSir: The only person I know who still has a Blackberry -- this is not a joke -- is homeless.
oren0: Subby needs a remedial course in what market share is. This is install base, as in what people have right now, which is a different metric than what "is selling" today or this month.
dbirchall: hitmanric: I love my mango 7.5. No problems at all.Are you looking forward to upgrading to 8? ;)/twists knife a bit
SuburbanCowboy: I have a Samsung Focus WP7, and previously was an iPhone user. I really want toget the Lumia 920, but there is such a severe lack of apps for Windows Phone, that I may jump back to iPhone.It's a catch 22. No one is making apps, because no one is buying the phones. No one is buying the phones because there are no apps.The WP UI is so much better than iOS. iOS looks like windows 98 now. It's completely antiquated and boring.If WP gets a few key apps (Square reader, Mint, Instagram are all rumored) I may stick with MS.
AcneVulgaris: Crudbucket: I'm planning to buy a Windows 8 phone and tablet when they come out next month, assuming there's not some horrible details that come out between now and then.If you buy at launch, you'll be the one posting the horrible details.
kg2095: I didn't know Microsoft sold handsets. I thought they made an OS used in other company's handsets.
