They can't steal iOS/Android users using a different mobile platform. What will make their devices really grab attention is if their devices is somehow compatible with the apps from both iOS/Android without so much hassle from the users.

android-customization
RIM-security
IOS-apps market
windows phone-user interface and speed
i think so wp 8 will be a blast,but that doesnt mean android will sink.android will continue growing due to its customization.rim phones are used mostly by enterprise people due to its security stuff. ios is famous for its simplicity and apps.i want wp to beat all the three os in security,apps and customization.

I agree with all the facts except for Windows Phone part. It does have a unique simple quick user interface, but how does that make it stand out as better compared to other OS when everyone has differing opinions on which OS they prefer?
