thats good news.but the absence of open gl and native code support for app development makes it a pain in ass to port games and app to windowsphone hopefully wp8 will solve the problem also looking forward for qt5 for windowsphone.
can we do something like jailbreak to wp phones and can get apps for free.. or find paid apps for free from somewhere else? ? ?
and the best part is that all those apps work on Any wp device with a few exceptions in case of the 610 but that is much better than Android where due to the fragmentation in os as well as screen resolution many apps just don't work on devices like galaxy y, etc. or if they do then they are not really usable due to the lag.
Well, well, well boys and girls (all 2 of you who frequent this site). It looks like Windows Phone has unpacked its things, made a sandwich and started getting comfortable because it's here to stay. With Windows 8's impressive showing at Computex and the promising stuff coming out of E3, it looks like next year is going to be a good year to be a mobile industry spectator.
Nokia actually has good apps exclusive for the Lumias, the Likes of Creative Studio, Nokia Drive, Contacts Transfer, CNN, the new Nokia Trailers; they actually make the Lumias the more superior choice over other WP7 devices.
I am an android user and I am satisfied with it but I guess there is nothing wrong trying wp8! So excited to have a second phone with wp8 os!!!
Probably this won't be enough to save Nokia, but still is nice to know Microsoft seems to be doing some effort in the mobile market. Still, the question on why would someone choose Windows against Android or iOS is unknown, to me... Hope their prices get better.
they didn't sell so much phones.. last time i heard about WP app number it was about 20k, who needs all that apps...
can anybody give an link to a site that says in which countries the marketplace is supported. want to buy a lumia but dont think the market place is supported in namibia
Microsoft are riding high right now, w8 tablets are impressive, the integration with Xbox via smartglass is quite good as well.. the last thing is wp8, and I think they won't disappoint there as well.
They are making a huge shift, and so will the consumers. We finally have a real "eco" system.
vanderbeek, 05 Jun 2012Windows Phone is awesome. It's very snappy. It never hangs like Android. And those live tiles ... moreGet a good android if you don't want lag.you bought 100$ android and complaining!!!!! Just try wp's low end phone like lumia radar and tell me they don't lag while playing games.and it restricted to heavyweightapps.haha
Good news for WP :) I am happy as a used to be WP user. I left WP because of current country list support. My country was not and is still not supported. I went back to Android as it's supported in most countries even in mine, when it comes to my country officially I will gladly go back using Windows Phones, for me it's just an amazing OS.
[deleted post]Oh, tell me how superior you are because you hate WP7. I've been using an Android phone for more than a year and I'm dying to try the Lumia 900. I hope it gets the WP8 upgrade as promised. A sweet looking OS. Fast, fluid, simple. I love it
In my opinion windows mobile phones won't be reaching android and ios numbers just yet ( in terms of sales)
android going to be in trouble with WP phones :)
It's good to get more competition for market, so welcome Microsoft.
