If it's true, MS should only give it to HTC and Huawei. Maybe Sony, but definitely not Samsung.
AnonD-59657, 15 Jan 2014Paying money = Bribery! This is really bad! Unfair competition! Paying money to buy Samsung, Sony, nokia, HTC phones are also bribery....please do not pay anything for anything!!! When u get everything free, then it is fair business!
really a stupid decision from MS... time and again MS proves it's in a confused state of mind..
It's pointless to spend so much on wooing other OEMs , now that it already owns Nokia , the best hardware maker IMO...
this cash could be spent on developing the WP8 platform , which needs serious improvements if it is to make it big in the smartphone industry...WP8 has the potential to become the second largest OS after Android within a few years... only thing holding it back is "features" ...I am still trying to understand why MS isn't paying adequate attention to WP8 in terms of developing the platform...
MS is throwing its money away by this deal...
LG go with Firefox OS, While Samsung and Sony go with WP8! A wrong choice, LG!
AnonD-59657, 15 Jan 2014Paying money = Bribery! This is really bad! Unfair competition! Wrong! Phone company spend most og their resources through r&d, that's where the half of the money goes. The other half is called incentive.
Nice to see Samsung make WP8 device again and Nice to see Sony make WP8 device too! :-) I love them!
troll just for dislike samsung.... come one for me sony makes the best hardware, and windows is the best OS for work.. ao why troll
Sony targeted three years for them to become at least top 3 phone industry. It's now very clear, their ambitions aren't that far from the real thing. Samsung, Apple, Sony. Top three.
AnonD-135156, 15 Jan 2014Nooooo! Samsung, Don't fall for the same trick nokia fell fore. Nokia refused to liten toi its... moreThe way I see it, it was LG who fell in the trap. They tied up with Google, now they are stuck with android. Nokia is now making android, while LG can no longer move. Lg should now concentrate in making vacuum cleaners while they still got some pennies.
Just Nokia, 15 Jan 2014Noooo Samsung...plllllzzzzz don't bring lag to winphone.But Sony is the best,after Nokia.Troll
Noooo Samsung...plllllzzzzz don't bring lag to winphone.But Sony is the best,after Nokia.
this absolute hypocracy.... Microsoft is not stupid.. then why did they buy Nokia
Should pay the developers instead to make apps. that is the thing missing in wp8. Nokia alone is enough but need more apps and that would be all.
