To gain traction among wp users...Intel should make phone with specs seen in androids. Like 5 or 6 inch 1080p display, quad core cpu, 2gb ram...12 mp camer

I dont understand the gaga over the 1080P phones..do we actually require that...I dont require them..but enjoying it, because that will drive down the cost of 720P mobile phones
