its not built from ground up.

its lipstick on a pick n900 with 600mhz outperform it cuz linux kernel is just better,
so, you think samsung is copying little from nokia, little from apple, little from motorola, little from htc etc..

Nothing can come near the King of the smart phone.
th3D, 05 Nov 2011Dont say anything bad about Bada if u already own a Bada phone. Me and lotsa others said that ... moreHAHA...you are wrong.
Samsung constantly updated Bada OS(currently 1.2) for WAVE 2 and recently announced Bada OS 2.0.
Don't get me wrong. Personally i prefer symbian over bada(not sure about window tho), but your pathetic misleading comment is hard to pass by.

The Windows Phone OS is completely unrelated to the older Windows Mobile OS. It's built from the ground up. If you have actually used this OS, you would know.
When I first saw Windows Phone OS, I didn't think I would like it (was gonna pick Android), but when I actually gave it a chance, I found it was really easy to use, tightly integrate with social networking, and relatively bug free.

For one, don't call it Windows 8 'Mobile' - it really goes against the point you are trying to make. This may cause people associate Windows Phone with the older and completely unrelated Windows Mobile platform, which, let's be honest here, wasn't the best OS around. People need to realize that Windows Phone is built from the ground up, and shares nothing from its predecessor.
The other thing is, is that you should not call something 'crap'. There is a lot of Nokia/Symbian loyalist here, so if your bagging their OS of choice (that they might be choosing to move from), really doesn't make for good first impressions for the Windows Phone community.

By this I mean slimmer than its desktop counterpart. Current Windows Phone OS is built on Windows CE Kernel.

It is, however, unknown if they will receive any major versions after Windows Phone 8; i.e Windows Phone 9. Rest assure though, that they will receive incremental updates. You also got to take note that most other OS's only support previous phones for a few versions too. Also, Windows Phone 8 is said to be built upon Windows NT ARM kernel, the effects of this on current hardware are yet to be seen, of course. The bright side of this ARM version is that it should be a cleaner/slimmer kernel than X86 kernel.
P.S. I used to use Symbian OS a lot - NGage, N70, 6120c, N97. Although a good OS at the time, it didn't age well, especially once touchscreens became the norm.
.....where are video call camera, JAVA, NFC, external memory slot, inbuilt documents editing software, wifi hotspot, gyrosensor, flash support, U tube etc etc etc.........
I just want another N8 with great camera, dual-core procesor 1.4GHz and Symbian Belle .... !!!
