Microsoft exec confirms co-marketing with partners - read the full textIt turns out the pinch of salt was only half needed lead of communications for Microsoft Frank X. Shaw confirms the company does indeed have monetary deals in place with phone makers over Windows Phone. He, however, calls the quoted dollar amounts "complete fiction". reality check. Do we do...

BlackBerry for me ;)
I can picture Don Draper from Mad Men with a BlackBerry Z10
He's man enough for this phone :)
But wow I loved the comment about being slave to Android's open source "freedom". It's true actually

Nor have I driven a City buss either, still I'm decided that another car is what I will get.

Same with phones, A Android will be my next phone (Any one, exempt a Nokia Android mobile).

When I pay, I decide.
Bus fanboys and Winphone fanboys, have no saying...

Now is 64bit coming to phones.
Thats a great reason for a new WP version (WP9?).

Of course no WP8.x phones won't be able to run a 64bit Winphone version.

Which means that all takers of WP8 phones and especially late takers will find them selfs, like WP7.5 buyers where, Microsoft won't support older WP version after they have launched a new one...

The new WP might be intended for both Tablets and phones (Yet another reason for M$ to drop support for both RT and WP8.x) and released at the same time as the Computer Win9, April 2015.

I only know one person that have used both Android, IOS and WP.
(My self only Android, Symbian and WM6.x).

She is a coworker and friend at the factory. Her first Smartphone OS was WP7, within a year she traded it for a Iphone 4S and now using a Samsung S4.

Asked her what phone OS would she get when gets her next phone.

She answered. A Samsung with Android or IOS anything but Winphone...

I know that WP8 is not WP7, just like Android 4.3 is not Android 1.6, but still.

My next phone will be an Android phone, too.

Android is full of security holes, malware, troyans, backdoors, NSA Tracking, fake apps, cookies, Ads, and endless lists of tracking apps.

So, no freedom at all in that OS... you are a disguised slave of everything that surrounds Google and their evil partners..

If you feel is free, please take a time to read ALL BEHIND Android an their policies of info handling and then you can get back here to post more comments about it...

When it comes to the UX... WP leaps ahead of the competition by a solar system.

W8 will not last for a long time. à
For sure Microsoft will revitalize the W8 OS.
