More than half of WP phones worldwide are Nokias - read the full textNokia has bet the house on Windows Phone and the numbers show that the Finnish company dominates the field when it comes to Microsoft's mobile OS. The stats were posted by the analysts over at Localytics and are based on app usage statistics from the Windows Phone Market place. Yet, Stephen Elop...

59% of a few clueless buyers is still a few clueless buyers.

And it shouldn't surprise anyone that most Microsoft Windows Phones are Nokias, given that Microsoft made sure one of their own people was CEO at Nokia. It's not in Nokia's (or their shareholders') interests to make Windows phones, but that guy is corrupt. Nokia shareholders need to wake up and have the guy arrested before Microsoft completely drain their funds.

iOS has no contest when it comes to android for one reason and that is the fact that android is open OS.
Everything can be customized to what u want.
That being said, android has a lot more openGL support, flash capability, wide range choise of devices.
Oh and not to forget, iOS did copy Androids dropdown menu, that all the iOS platforms look exactly the same from iOS 1 till the latest one out yet.
I'm really sick of iOS fanboys like you who just say iOS is better and start talking without knowing your facts.
There is a reason that Android in 4 short years is the OS 56% of the population of the whole world use.

Nokia will again b the king...samsung gives those cheap plastic material in even 30000 n above priced phones but salute to Nokia's Polycarbonate..it gives a feel of high end smartphones...Lumias are ultimate fast devices..Android is jst a crap and unsecured OS..used Galaxy note for 2 months and found that it is a phone for school kids only....Now using Nokia Lumia 900 n yes that is what we call as future generation smartphones...

Developers have to optimize for specific chip if they want games to run best. You see why there are alot complain about force closes and freezes from Google Play on complex 3D games from the like of EA and Gameloft. iPhones keep the fragmentation low when they use PowerVR SGX GPUs only. The same with Windows Phone only use Adreno GPUs (or Snapdragon SoC) and no other.

ADroid is just crap! I dunno why people think otherwise. It runs SLOW and it's full of ADs and viruses! Who would want that? It is bound to fade away in a few years when other OSs become more affordable. Who wouldn't want Windows on their phone?? Seamless integration with the PC and PROPER software!

Android is just for Kids anyway!!

buy a laptop with core i7 in 40000 in place of s3. so why buy s3?
according to ur n aditya oo7 rules buy laptop in place of s3 because u can do every thing that can ur s3 do n much more than that.
if u say that buy a dslr instead of 808 then buy a more helpful laptop then s3 and laptop can do calling n messaging but ur dslr cant do that

Who cares. The nokia of old is dead. Its simply an average oem now thanks to slash and burn elop. No software engineers, no hardware engineers, factories all closed and production pushed out to third parties. A branch office of microsoft mobile support. And carriers will downplay wp8 at every turn. Microsofts phone strategy was to field test wp7 on those dumb enough to buy them. Screw their customers on os upgrades, then re launch as wp8. Brilliant. Simply trying to slap lipstick in a pig at this point.

I can't wait for WP8, Nokia and Microsoft all the way baby.... I hope and PRAY they give Sammy Samsung a hiding and take back the throne.

Here in South Africa already the Lumia family are starting to take off very nicely.. the Lumia 610, 710, 800, and 900 are selling very well, both on contract and prepaid.

someone complaints about crappy Symbian os, someone about default web browser and someone about apps....they all knows that 808 is failed one!!!!
the good thing is that it has 41mp sensor..but paying 32,000INR is something big for a Symbian Phone. we can buy DSLR for lesser than that money..LOL
