there is a lot of misconception about windows mobile. I never had any problems with my windows phone. I used to have nokia n75 and before that nokia 6630. Both nokias were good but i find my HTC tytn II even more powerful running windows. It has good RAM and processor which the nokia lacked. Windows also offer a broad range of applications and possibilities which i liked. And to be honest, there is no OS that is perfect. Let it be any OS, bugs are bound to we can excuse that. I wish people understand this...

Yes, you know, Apple invented the mobile phone. Before that, Apple invented the PC. Before that, Apple created the effing planet.

Iphone fans are a LAUGHABLE stock, conned and hypnotized by Apple into thinking they are the best. A phone that cannot handle message forwarding and video, not to mention MMS and Bluetooth.

So yes, Apple, Apple, Apple, all the way.I AM jealous - I'd LOVE to have the state of blind catatania that Apple fans seem to have.

Iphone is the biggest fraud in communications history and its victims are loving it. Good for you.

Hopefully when you say Miscrosoft, its only a typo.

I really hope that Microsoft is behind all of this new product, not Miscrosoft :).

Nokia Ovi is good but doesn't work in India for 5220 XpressMusic. Am still yet to get proper advice from Nokia on this one. Anyway, I am goin' for a WinMo smartphone soon and hope SkyBox works well ... otherwise its the reliable Symbian as always.

face the facts iphone is here to stay like it or not, and of course there will be further releases, so we have not seen the last of the iphone series.

I enjoy what I can do and don't continually whine about what I can't, life seems better that way.

other smartphones may have limited 3rd party apps, but at least u can enjoy a phone with features lacked in the iphone.

im waiting for a few more years for the iphone to crumble. >:P

Cool this might make Apple take a look at offering free MobileMe accounts which offer less services than a "premium" account.

I remember Steve Ballmer laughing at the launch of App store and saying that Winmo has 18,000 applications (spread all over the place from 3rd party developers and pirates), 6 month's later App store had over 15,000 applications, over 500,000,000 downloads under it's belt and is estimated to be a billion dollar business.

Who's laughing now Steve?

Another money draining venture for Microsoft.
