For all you guys complaining about US only news, do you have any credible reports in English that they can put on this English-language site? GSM Arena reports what's available. If it's not available they can't wave their magic want to make you guys happy.

PC's will never die, my friend. Second: Samsung will never be a selling champion when Nokia plays in the filed. They were never better and will never be, and that you could clearly see when Symbian ruled, when Nokia lead and dung followed. And that is why Samsung has no share in wp market. Cause is Samsung against Nokia. One more time, face to face! What that means? NO CHANCE for dung and no competition for LUMIA. They have nothing against Nokia, but that selling system they hold on like leeches cause they know one thing: They cannot face Nokia, so they play safe with selling as much crapp as they can until Nokia takes over. They have one AS though, Nokia will never make droids. Simple cause that system is like a meal for hogs. Anyway, cutting to the chase... Who will buy a dung ativ when there is LUMIA?:)))))). Maybe some "dungers". But nobody else, that's for shore.

Bit harsh on WP8. Android and iPhone remain dominant because of word of mouth and specs.

Hopefully with these new OS being launched this year, there will a real shake up.

People had enough crap from MS on their PCs , so who want some more crap on their smartphones ? :)

Surely Nokia must by now be thinking they've made a catastrophic blunder by solely using Microshaft. Even dead as a Dodo Symbian didn't lose market share!!

Time for Elop to go me thinks.
