im a android i have sony z my girl has s3 ther share is going down and ther future is not looking as good as windows and nokia lol well waist your time on bb both platforms have way to go and windows looks like they are getting way more devs. 5 % is sad they should be using the time to get ahead. so what you have now dont hope for much more lol at least windows is pushing no skype video call most of the apps are ported from android so quality is not great most of the time . now devs dont sign up to make apps do the math . bb is on its way down maybe my fellow canadian dont no it yet cause your they prob go to bell rodgers and they see adds .

BB has lost its way. A number of folk that were putting their hopes on the new BB were utterly disappointed by the fact that it doesn't have a physical keyboard.

Back to topic... it's good to see more developers coming onboard for WPhone. I've had my WPhone for the last 18mths, at first sceptical and hesitant about Microsoft's huge change in design etc. But it is a very solid OS and worthy of much more. Those who aren't sure, give it a go and stop listening to tripe from those who think they know about the build. Give it a shot yourself... you can always exchange it.

I'm glad I didn't just listen to the skeptics.

I travel alot. i see alot of iphone, android, and blackberry but Wp nop. WP Has bearely 3% on the market share. In North america WP are praticaly non-existent. You live in canada you should know that. Nobody except 3% wants WP. I konw alot of people that were nokia fan boy since N95 they all went for Android or Iphone. None of them like window phone. Nokia shoot them self in the leg.

Nokia Lumia and Windows Phone go together very well.
I wouldn't want a Samsung and wouldn't want Android.

Apple iphone = 63% + 15% => 78%
Apple ipad = 61% + 15% => 76%
Android smartphone = 55% + 17% => 72%
Android Tabelt = 40% + 23% => 63%
Black berry smartphone = 49% + 5% => 54%
WP Smartphone = 26% + 25% => 51%
WRT Tablet = 8% + 35% => 43%
Black berry tablet = 15% + 6% =>21%

We people like me are smart enouh to do some math this is the conclusion we get. 54% for black berry smartphone vs 51% for wp smartphone. Is it clear for you now??
