As far as HD games, it's just a matter of time.

"Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or consume any kind of web open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win". Steve Jobs - April 2010, "Thoughts on Flash"

Even WP8 hasn't supported 1080 and how long has MS been in the mobile game?

Give it time, see where it goes. We are just seeing the first phones with the OS and the developments will be interesting.

Anyway, all Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia phones will get the Amber update over the air, except for the Lumia 520 and 521 (which lack the hardware support) and the Lumia 925 and 1020 (which come with Amber out of the box).

Certainly not for the hardware. We're on the edge of seeing what happened in the PC industry happening in the mobile phone industry. Hardware will become a commodity.

And about productivity and features. Have you ever seen an iPhone in real? Because if you did, you wouldn't have the guts to say that.

too expensive, add VAT to this price and its not a good deal anymore. Cortex A5, seriously, thats too weak, not only are the cores weak but the lack of cache cripples them further. Other than that i believe in FF OS, and its good that RAM is now adequate. I be getting a FF mobile as secondary unit as soon as there is a good one available, dual A9 and 1GB being minimum, and acceptable cam with led flash. Looking forward to get back to HTML5 programming, this is going to be so refreshing.

Even most feature-phones have things the 700-euro iPhopnes don't have. So why should people buy a very expensive feature-phone when they can get a smartphone for much less?

The only reason why Android is so successful is because of Google and Google is so popular among the masses. It's been a household name already. But iOS can definitely bring down Android if not only for the premium price of iOS devices. Windows Phone has a chance to snatch some of Android's marketshare if Microsoft will step up their game. People love Nokia's hardware. It's just the OS that's holding them back from getting a Nokia Lumia.

Firefox OS only runs HTML5 apps. There is no HD gaming on this OS. It's the mobile counterpart of Chrome OS. Both are web browser OSes hence their names. This kind of OS is already a failure in desktop and will be a failure in mobile as well. There is no future for HTML5.
