Nokia abandoned WP7.x devices because WP7 is a completely different OS (Windows CE), and can't run any of the new WP8 software...

Have you ever use one of WP? I used many android phones already but i feel not interesting. I'd better use Nokia 808 instead of Android phone. Lumia lineup is a popular family of Nokia. i hope you try it first then say it again

no it wasnt fail wp8 is sucess who said its not see the growth of WP8 its still on rise
but if u expected it rise like 50% in one year u be dreamer no thinker android only got quick start since there was not anything else there to compete IOS was only for rich nerds
wp have competetion if u think in real life even the ultimate OS cant grow as u expect in now a days

Maybe they didn't test Windows Phone 9 on Samsung yet, don't worry. If Samsung don't have Windows Phone 9 devices, Samsung still have Android. So don't worry.

You retard.
Samsung is wallowing happily in the Android land.
Selling over 60 million Androids in 3 months, while Nokia brags about 5 million windows phones they did at the same time.

You should ask your self what's keeping Nokia from challenging Samsung

What Nokia should be worried about is hope somebody don't end up buying them. I'm sure Samsung can do that....oh wait MS have already have an eye on that matter.
First try get back that HQ of theirs back in espoo, then may be we can talk about who is scared of who.

Hmm, I find it interesting that the Windows Phone Test Services team is testing WINDOWS 9 OS, not Windows Phone 9...

Is it possible we'll have a completely unified OS by Windows 9?

A Microsoft employee would not refer to Windows Phone as Windows OS, even later in a discussion. That's not just lazy shorthand -- they're two different products entirely.
