this is so stupid marketing...
a better way is that on windows phone devices should be also Android... so you'll 'commit to WP', but you have the fall back to Android... I will certainly buy a Nokia 1020 with dual-boot WP8-Android
AnonD-188568, 04 Oct 2013i hate windows... android r far betteryes, windows phone are laggy than android,
they have lots of malware in their store than android,
they need more cores to run their java engine, apps dont load fast.
Ok, Now will be HTC One cost 100 $ more for licensing WP and have half of free memory space.
And 2015 Microsoft will buy HTC for 500 milions ...
AnonD-182305, 04 Oct 2013Wow thats bad for microsoft it's like they are at a point where they are actually asking htc t... moreThey wouldnt go with Samsung because Samsung wouldnt commit to such a deal as they doing great on there own. They targeting HTC now because like Nokia... HTC is in a financial situation. So best bet is to try and get HTC to install Windows on there phones and they wont need to charge anything to HTC since HTC is already struggling on its own. I bet if HTC did this that Microsoft will eventually back them up financially. In the end Microsoft will kind of own Nokia and HTC which in turn could give them a much better hand in getting themselves up there with Samsung and Apple. Thats what i think could be the plan.
Wow thats bad for microsoft it's like they are at a point where they are actually asking htc to put the os on android devices but then again i feel if they wanted this to work they should have gone for samsung since they are leaders in the android market.
Microsoft, finally show its true color in the mobile world - the big bully.
I have a better idea. Why doesn't Microsoft allow Nokia to put android on their devices? Oh, wait, this may not have the desired effect, but the exact opposite.
