microsoft has had plenty of time to get their act together....and are phisicaly and mentally uncapable.
and do you want the best news ?
on the wiki page it says what wp8 stops beying supported on8 july 2014.
so in one year and 1 month wp8 is getting dumped. wanna bet the new os will not be compatible with curent lumias and other wp devices ? wanna bet ?

And I guess it sells better than android used to when it was at the same stage. And WP store has 150,000 apps in this little time. And you'll probably find all the required apps in these. And more are being added everyday. Nobody will get paid here by keeping one OS over the other here. Buy what you like. Competition is good.
