I hope great smartphones this time, lumia 800 and 900 are to weak to face the beasts. In Brasil, nokia are too expensive. Thinking in this way, it's better buy iphone or Galaxy. I'm sad with the lasts phones and waiting to the growth of lumia phones...

Compared to iOS6, WinMob8 is a big leap...though not sure if it's big enough. Probably not this round but sometime soon it will start to seriously compete.

As for your comment about being bored of Android... as compared to iOS?... seriously??! iOS is a really nice, smooth OS with lots to like about it, but more exciting then the almost unlimited ability to customise Android it definitely ain't.

As things are right now all 3 OS's are 'horses for courses' - each has enough pro's and con's that none is a clear stand out from the others.

which you should read.

I think this is a win win for NOKIA in getting all this free publicity from APPLE, which should convert into sales as the IP5specs being over 'anticipated'

Samsung have raised the bar with the SGS III and so far have Apple have NOT added many features to each iPhone.
SO a jump from IP4S to Apples version of the SGS III is... I don't think so

WP8 is a giant leap, imagine the Lumia 800 or 900 with expansion and as I understand it, the 900 sold buckets in the USA

I have a gut feeling WP 8 will bring an end to the android.

I don't think Win8 mobile will be a hit right off though, so android smartphones will stay on top for a while. Once Win mobile produces a more fully flegded offering Android will need a fantastic tablet experience in place, otherwise Win Mo, Tab & PC will be a pretty tough ecosystem to beat.

I also care about Windows Phone 8, which to me is equally exciting. Only one I feel bored of now is probably Android.

I'd say there's a very good chance we'll see at least one new
Windows phone in September. Originally the plan was to launch 2-3 Symbian handsets alongside the Asha 305 & 311, but I think Nokia has decided to shelve the old platform permanently (4 years early).

WP8 is still not good ecosystem, i still dont understand why Nokia keep investing in 1% market share. Instead of launching Nokia Android PureView, they move to windowsphone where sales are not good really.

Me myself I am looking forward to owning an iPhone 5, and a new high end Lumia with WP8 for the year to come. Great combo.

> In reply to [deleted post]Not saying I am right 100%, but Android tablets are pretty bad (the smartphones are quite good). Very poor software and developer support, while Microsoft Surface debut has loads of people excited. It stands to reason that Windows tablets will give Android a huge run for its money. Whether this translates to a halo effect on its Windows smartphones is another story altogether.
