just like the verge the comments on his personal life is becoming like the cover of Hello or Ok magazine. I dont really care who he had a personal relationship with. The fact that nobody is talking about is his great work with Google and the fact that is is going to become Vice President of a mobile brand in China that can sell something like 700,000 phones in under a hour and 7 million in about 2 weeks. Nobody in their right mind would turn that type of postion down and it will give him more scope and freedom than he had with Google and more say. I dont really believe that a relationship came into that decision to work with one of the biggest phone makers in China

There must be something special in Xioami, maybe that's why VP of Android left Google. Well, Andy Rubin, the creator of Android has left too. This can benefit Xioami a lot and maybe Google will merge Chrome OS with Android or make a mistake and make it crappy OS who knows. 2014 will be an interesting year. So many OS coming up, it would be fun.

Like he said no apps and games, that's the most stupid thing a Fandroid can say because of being arrogant having no clue about how many apps and games are present now in WP8 store. WP8 is not yet capable to reach the level where Android is but it will surely reach it in 2014. It's just a matter of time.

And btw! That reply was specifically to that troll comment. I guess you didn't catch the sarcasm.

Vague replay of what WP8 can do is the only sort of reply that WP8 user/lover can do. WP8 is good OS but not yet capable to topple android which I say have flatten out the parity with iOS.

While everybody was struggling for inovating the touchscreen nokia was still sitting on its ass enjoying their sales of feature phones. Anna, belle were great but the display size made 700 and 701 phones for girls with tiny hands. I would buy a belle powered nokia but only with a 4.5" or above display
