WP8 is expected to be a failure too

Android 1.5 sucked too, as well as iPhone OS.

Windows Phone can really edge out some competitors, just wait.

Hasn't it been 7years for windows OS, I don't see any changes or rising! It still a Half-baked Os with restrictions and limited specs.

WinMo wasn't as restricted and limited as WP but had a "half-baked" UI.

1) No. WinMo is totally different from WinPho. You might as well compare Windows 95 with Windows 7.
2) Rei forcing the correctness of your name, you obviously haven't seen the specs from the Nokia Lumia 810/820/920, HTC WP8S/X, and Samsung Ativ S: all their specs rival the latest Android flagships, excepting quad-core processors, which we all know doesn't mean much, especially for an optimized system. HTC WP8X is essentially a reskinned OneX, the Ativ S is a reskinned Galaxy S3. Would you say those gave a lack on specs? No? Then STFU.

consider Windows Phone as a restart. nothing was retained when they scrapped windows mobile.

Windows Phone 8 is a huge leap and more ads are coming out. a lot are joining the wp8 army with huge pushes like the Lumia, 8X and even Alcatel.

Just give it time. it might even succeed iOS in 2 years time.

Yea still have to use Zune to download music, just like iOs.... Microsoft hates and wants to kill destroy Linux, no Devs and hackers are interested, cause there are no Root kernel access.... Still dosen't provide freedom. Poised side that ui is like maybe 75Fps?

Its actually been 10 years, and only if your going by the smartphones. And judging by your comment, you apparently have never used WinMo, let me start:
Half-Baked: WinMo did everything Android does and actually a lot more if you consider that it had
1: Flash (Were talking 2005 here son)
2: File Explorer
3: Hacked and cooked roms (where do you think XDA came from)
4. complete access to internal systems including the Windows system files and the entire registry
5. Ability to install programs and apps directly to SD card (Unlike Android where the app's presence is still on system memory and the processing files are stored on the SD card)

Restrictions:
Refer to previous list

Limited Space:
Blame your precious Samsung and HTC for that one.

Next time, just stick with dissin the iPhone buddy...

Frankly, BB/RIM are 'edging' themselves out of the enterprise all by themselves, with no help from WP.

It's going to be tight but BlackBerry can do it if. OS10 is good enough and they can attract sufficient developers and apps. The hardware has to be pretty damn good as well.

Also they need to consider prize range as well.

I really don't understand why Windows 8 will edge BB out of enterprise??
WM6 is not a success compared to Symbian
WP7 is a proven failure compared to Android & iOS

Why not have an article with title say
"Android Key Lime Pine & iOS 7 will edge BB out of this earth"

this more make sense

lol haters!! you should check first that android isnt pure linux!! it is linux base and base on linux 3.1 whatever that means... while open webOS is at linux 3.3

and the only pure linux around mobile market is MeeGo.. the N9!!! yes!! it is!!!

BB10 is unix same with iOS but with different and unique look!

and come on... WP still need to beat Symbian... have you seen the q2 2012 sales? symbian is still on the lead even without help with nokia! and BlackBerry is still on top of symbian!

LOL nikolas.... no matter how much you hate RIM and BlackBerry... its all up to people's choice!!!

like me, my choice is to continue to love BlackBerry...and your choice is not to... but i dont really care if they ended up 3rd or 4th as long as people could see the greatness of BB10 like most of the people/tech sites/devs saw it!!!

BB10 will be great!!! so i couldn't care less of what you will say!

and a lot dont like what you said!!!

hating makes you pathetic!!!

How do you know that bb 10 "WILL" (not would) be a great os when it hasnt been released yet? Doesn't it mean you can predict the future? If so please tell me when will i die? Can you?

Hating has nothing to do with pathetic so please stop saying "hating makes you pathetic"

You live in phillipines dont you? Then you will never know how it feels because from what i know Only a small number of people in phillipines who use bb

it will be a great OS because of a number of advantages! and its main advantage is the move from java to a unix OS!

i dont predict the future...i said that coz of all the things that i already see and a lot of tech sites and devs saw that too!!!

it doesnt mean that when i said great it mean it will bve on top! but great beacause of what's inside!

haha... you're funny! a lot of people use BB!! Teens, Your professional and other people you dont expect to one one but they have!

yes... hating is pathetic!!! very very pathetic! because its pointless!
