Remember, Android has Geforce ULP (Tegra), MALI, Adreno, PowerVR SGX, and some other GPUS. It's only good for the manufacturers, it's not good for the consumers. This fragmentation doesn't help with the update process on Android and doesn't help the developers.

However WP8 starts out with good specs and WP8 has DirectX 11 for awesome looking games. So games that are specifically made for WP8 will be great looking no doubt.
android and wp8 will be i think equal! wp8 vs jellybean! And it is to the user to pick up the choice! android now is on the best, if wp8 will offer the best available it can't offer more than android and its price ranges

It looks like the Samsung Galaxy S2 but better looking. I am a user of S2, and held onto it even if S3 was released. Now I know what to exchange my S2 for. I am excited for this. Thanks, Samsung.
Tom, 29 Aug 2012I have been an avid Android user for a few years now, but I must say wp8 is looking very nice ... moreWP8 will optimized much better than Android. Android doesn't support multi-core properly. WP8 only uses Snapdragon SoCs for easy software updates (officially or unofficially), games compatibility, and general OS performance. Android is too fragmented in hardware so it won't be as fast as WP8. Android has way too many different SoCs and graphics chips. There are so many crash and freeze problems with EA and Gameloft's games on Android because of the fragmentation in graphics chips.
Samsung are smart manufacturers. They are not beholden to any one OS. In this case they know WIN8 is a winner for them as they have already tested the OS and know what the device is capable of. There is no doubt Apple and Android will suffer. It is a pity Apple is so preoccupied with their intellectual property when MS is about to cause them considerable damage to their market share, and they seem oblivious to that fact. But for Samsung regardless of the patent rubbish, they will go onto to capture an even greater share of world wide mobile device manufacturing. I like their can do attitude, something that Americans are supposed to be proud of, well at least 50 years ago. Now the USA is just a financial disaster.
does it have tv out ? mass storage ? usb on the go ? option to change those stupid ugly tiles ?
All of the above or i'll pass.
Right after a massive patient infringement fine they produce a phone that face on looks almost exactly the same as the i9000 and i9100 the two phones fined for looking to close to the iPhone not sure if this was a great move Samsung. I am not a apple fan boy I have a i9300 just says silly move!
6 to 12 months after its release Windows Phone will AT LEAST have 10% of the phone market.
That's a promise.
