People may question why Windows OS and Windows Phone drains so fast the batteries.
We know why: due to the 10 years partnership Microsoft - Intel in the development of desktop computers; Intel had to sell processors, with more and more cores, consuming a lot electricity and Microsoft had to sell new licenses, new versions of Windows which nobody needed. So the software had few optimizations and wasted processor power to make people buy new Intel multicore processors and also invalidate older hardware to slow when run Aero and lots of services hard to find a reason why were enabled by default.
The Apple introduces mobile trend and Microsoft feels let in back. Desperately try to adaptate a desktop OS supposed to run at outlet power to mobile devices; unfortunately for them 10 years of cooperation with Intel has a heavy toll. Even if the Microsoft programmers work day and night can't clean the code from the rubbish which was meant to give a reason to buy newest Intel multicore processors.

We can check and I bet few out of US can afford and few in US wish too when nobody wishes to pays for apps. It is about thousands dollar licences for expected 99 cents apps from which a big share is the tax to Microsoft plus other share tax return to goverment, in the end the developer gets broke.

Here peoole talk about technology! At least, some of them...
Steven Sinofsky was asked to quit by the board of directors, investors because the WP8 impact on market was weak. Do not believe the press and all crap they say. No executive just leave, they have to be approved and bound through stock; if they are successful they are asked to stay forever otherwise they are fired and the company does not say the truth not to harm the business.
I went to several stores in San Francisco and Cupertino area to see the reaction of potential buyers. Believe me rarely, rarely I saw some people looking at such Nokia 920 phone. It is completely ignored in a high tech area were people have high income and afford to buy yearly a new phone. The reason: dislike WP8, a crazy user interface in a brick. Apple stores are none stop full and Microsoft is begging custmmers to have a look at their products: why? Stupid WINDOWs 8 on high price, drains fast the batteries no matter it is phone, tablet or notebook. Besides to make apps for Windows one developer must pay thousands to Microsoft for tools and licenses. They are a failed model in an open market.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2012source and how many quantities did they sell? thanks. Nokia manufactured few 920 phones becouse do not wish and afford the risk. They are now looking for market reaction and if the find negative opinions may even stop the production.
