More and more companies is trying out windows phone 8.. like newcomer huawei..

More competition is good for consumers in the future.

But as people are relent to move from their own platforms which they already paid much on.. microsoft is going to have a tuff time ahead.

They are selling 5X more since they now have more Windows phones out on the carriers. Sprint is about to release WP8 phones. That can only help. Android is the worst OS I have ever used when it comes to reliability and bugs. I have had many Android phones to notice these cons, including the Nexus 4 with latest Android version. iOS and WP8 have much less bugs and more stable OS.

I'm guessing they sold 5 phones... because no one buys them... however they are very cheap. Because they're crap... like BlackBerry...

Well done MS for making WP8 as stable as iOS, way more reliable and way less bugs than Android.

Ppl said it was too big and that 3.5in was the perfect size. what happened now? those ppl play catching up with the 4in and ate their own words. same thing will happen with 5in, of course the competition will only play catch up with 5in androids of today.

Then came the 1st gen lumias. I love the simplistic approach. Thats why i came back for Nokia, i remember back then whenever sum1 ask me w/c phone to buy, i always say go buy Samsungs android device. But now its a whole different story. :)

I want to take this time to ask. . Why do people buy Gs3/N2? They often mock Wp8 thread with these two. So am asking those fandroid why did they bought the phone at the first place. :)
