So, most of the android apps are't downloaded. Doesn't matter if the end result is pretty good. 100k is a pretty good number.

For just 3 months of being out it is a pretty big number, they're catching up to windows which has been out for what, half a decade? Go blackberry! :)

I believe this is temporary solution, it is better to have at least android version. with the time passing native apps will come up.

no instagram, no flipboard and obviously no true youtube app, the youtube app on the z10 will only redirect you to the youtube website instead of the app

It does one step better. It runs Adobe Flash. You can run the full youtube.com as it was intended. Not need for a "work around" app due to the lack of Adobe Flash support like other operating systems.

windows should open their eyes..they are wasting time on increasing the number of apps. to me what makes and OS is the number of good apps. if IOS and android didn't have the number of apps they did now.they would just look so ordinary.windows phone is an awesome OS which still has a lot of room to grow.they just need to put more effort in their market place
