Please stop that crap about growing more then ever before. In Q1 2014 7.6 million WP devices sold (2.7% market share). That's down from Q4 2013 with 8.8 million WP devices. Which is down once again from Q3 2013 with 9.5 million WP devices. Android has never seen a drop, ever. Its always increased its sales globally every quarter. Go to IDC and check out the stats.

Where do you get your info about Android have never seen a drop, why lie, also the smartphone game is a marathon not a sprint, you keep looking at quarterly shares YOY WP keeps growing, last year over 33 million devices were sold. Look at the big picture , keep up.

Windows Phone is LOSING market share.

Instead of asking everyone about how much money Google/Samsung/Apple/Whoever is paying everyone here, the real question is how much are YOU and the five or so other circus acts posting on here on Microsoft's payroll for?

And, for the record, MS was nothing without Nokia in the mobile business, not the other way around as previously believed.

Why would they cancel the trend setting OS that Android and iOS is mimicking visually?. Such a stupid comment to make.

WP 8.1 is basicly just adding features that have been on iOS and Android for ages. WP has influenced iOS and Android, but calling it copying is stupid.

WinMobile had lots of features, win7 was reboot and win8 added them because android notification huggers needed it. I use notification for one thing, internet sharing everthing else is live tiles all the same. Not calling it use less but to me notification center is meh for my uses. On all platforms.

What those features were already on Windows mobile besides you naysayers and also other fans were asking for WP to adopt those features. No one requested Android and iOS add WP UI to their OS they did it out of admiration.

Please fire that eflop MS. I don't want you to suffer like Nokia. I don't care if it has anything to do with eflop but if that mole stays, you will only suffer.

I prefer Microsoft innovate rather than go the same line of pointless heart sensor or simply throw super high specs that will never be used in real world and which the Chinese phones will beat them on anyway.

God damn it! Just give a better camera than the 1020, mounted at a 1520/930 chassi and all will be fine with me.

By the way, I would gladly trade all this 3D gimmick for a snapdragon 801 5" waterproof 1020 successor. Just a bit faster camera would suffice.

I understand that the entry-level smartphone market is where Microsoft is seeing some success, but they NEED to maintain consumer interest in high-end smartphones too. Without interest in the high-end market, there will be little desire for the lower-end market as well. People want what is popular, what is desired by others.

Ain't that a kick in the teeth.

Seems like MS is imploding.
