Microsoft will end up being the big winner after Google’s acquisition of Motorola as other Android phone makers will be alienated by the prospect of rivaling with Google…

"Do you agree that Microsoft’s Windows Phone will be the main beneficiary of Google’s acquisition?"
Partialy.

I belive that both WP7 and bada will benefit form the google moto deal. I do actually believe bada will benefit more from this, as Samsung will go for bada full speed and Samsung being the 2nd largest phone manufacturer, will be able to make bada a very popular OS.

Of course WP7 very likely will benefit from this too, but since there has benn plenty of rimors of Microsfot buying Nokia and making their own hardware just like google, WP7 might not be such a good option for manufcaturers.

It's too late for me to edit this post now, but just wan't to say there has been some spelling errors in my post like microsfot instead of Microsoft. I'm aware of these, and i'll not write as quick next time, to avoid spelling errors.

You're becoming just as bad as an iphone fanboy. WE get it. You love bada (god knows why). But the thing is... we don't give a sh*t.

I agree WP7 is not good. Bada leaves WP7 in the dust, bada has more functions, nicer UI, and more personalization option than WP7. Check your facts before you post anything.

I know the facts, i've used both OSes.

And anyway, when it comes to bada, i'm tired of hearing you talk about Android and iphone and WP7, so just shut it will ya ?

Please Note, i did not mean the above of course, i'm just pointing out to you how silly your comment is about hearing bada.

bada is very relevant in this post, as it has to do with Google buying motorola, and therefore bada will get lot's more market share.

You like to talk about Android, i like to talk about bada.

1. feature wise why would your average consumer buy bada over the competition

2. Why would Samsung dedicate all its resources to promote bada when its proven that the only company being capable of holding hardware and software together without creating a loss is apple?. What would make bada so special that will not end up like symbian or BBOS and webos?

Bada might end up killing Samsung just like we already saw

1. bada is a simple to use OS with a nice and clean UI and has lots of features. Like wifi direct with 300 mbps speed allowing wireless gaming for example. bada has so many features, i don't really have time to go trough them all here in this post : P

Basically, bada has more features than IOS and WP7. With the recent bada 2.0

2. Samsung know's it can earn lots more money by making their own OS, and they have to now that Google are making their own hardware. Nokia had no problems with Symbian, when Symbian 3 came out symbian had the biggest market share. It was only after Mr Elop announced Symbian dead that Symbians market share dropped and Android got the biggest market share.

1. Wifi direct is not a bada only feature but rather a certification more info on it here.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wi-Fi_Direct
here is a list of a few devices with support for ithttp://goo.gl/aCMPn

still need to see though that

2. they make more money by having a company do all the OS coding for them, yeah they can add some of the features to their OS but complete development is expensive, also Symbian stated falling when some real competition came to It yes ellop killed Symbian faster but as the speed it was developed it was bound to happen sooner o latter

iOS is a "simple to use OS with a nice and clean UI and has lots of features" except you know, people buy it. Bada is just an android rip-off. Why cant Samsung do anything but copy other companys?

Ha, bada is not a Android copy, then you have never seen bada in real life : )
bad looks alot like samsungs touchwiz, and touchwiz does not look anything like stock android.

As i Said i have yet to hear those amazing features that surpass ios and wp. I want to be trilled into thinking why would I dedicate time I use to learn Android and iOS development (and learning some wp too) to give it to bada

Allright.
with bada:
You can do internet thetering (can't do that on WP7, don't know about IOS here)
You have a file manager (not on WP7 nor IOS)
You can use your bada phone as mass storage on your computer (can do with IOS, but not with WP7).
Flash (not on IOS nor on WP7)
HTML 5 (that's on WP7 and IOS)
You can install java apps (not on WP7 nor IOS).
You can have a MicroSD card (can't have that on IOS nor WP7)
Javascript Framework (don't know about WP7 or IOS here)
NFC (not on WP7 nor IOS at the moment).
Widgets (not on WP7 nor IOS)
Your own background image (not on WP7, but IOS does have that).
Your own ringtone (WP7 will have 1 own ringtone with mango just like IOS, but with bada you can choose whichever ringtone you like so bada is better here).


then of course bada has multitasking, voice recognition, push notifications, app store (samsungapps).

And then we also have all the personalization options, like app shortcuts, folders to put your apps in and so on.

whenever I say I don't get one either :) but hey I get over it, sorry I've being studding

-Tether is on Both WP7 and iOS
-If I'm not mistaken there is a file manager app for wp7 (too bad I don't own a device)
-mass storage mode comes activated with the device on wp7 its more like a driver deal
-flash is to come on mango
-java apps? what for?
-depends on the device for wp7
-if you can have Java apps of course you need the framework
-NFC is to come further on WP7 and may also come on the iPhone 5 unless the wave 2 has NFC i see the same situation with the wave 3
-widgets work like the live titles on wp7

then of course multitasking, voice recognition, push notifications, app store.

and I know little about wp

At least you're nice instead of bashing like some other people do : )
I appreciate having a civilized conversation instead of just bashing, and you always keep your posts civilized : )

I have had WP7, and there is no file manager app for WP7. In fact, there is a restriction in WP7 that does not allow apps to get access to files.
With WP7, you can store images, music and videos via Zune. You can't access the files on a WP7 device from a computer, you can only transfer images videos and music via Zune. If you want office documents on your WP7, you need to send them via email to your WP7 email app.

And still with bada, you can have:
A MicroSD card (can't have that on IOS nor WP7)
Your own background image (not on WP7, but IOS does have that).
Your own ringtone (WP7 will have 1 own ringtone with mango just like IOS, but with bada you can choose whichever ringtone you like so bada is better here).

Thanks. I try to keep my arguments to what I believe its true and try as much to back them up, but I can also understand other people have their opinions, I have respect for those who can give a considerable argument to contradict my opinion. yes you talk a lot about bada, but people talk a lot about WP or webos or android or iOS or rim, so I don't see a difference in there In more than market status and current level of popularity.

Just shows you how little functions IOS has, that you need to jailbreak it.
There is no need for Jailbreak with bada.

That bada has more functions than IOS and WP7 is a fact. I have used both WP7 and bada and i can say that bada easily has more functions than WP7. I have used IOS a lot of time in the shops to check it out, and bada has more functions than IOS too !

There is no denying it.
