Nokia attack HTC aggressively for their WP phone. Looks like Nokia is getting a great deal out of Microsoft after all.

It's more like a dead platform. I don't see wp8 doing well! Look what happened to Windows Mobile, for the past 8 years it was failing, so what diffrence was Wp7 and Wp8 do! All manufactures tried befor and it lead to loss, a big flop! The only reason Nokia has gone for a free ride, which they don't pay nothing. MS is funding Nokia to keep Nokia floating.

That is a nonsense that Wp fees are high, who the hell would want there company to bleed.

Ms Wp8 you are a "Fail"™

Hey Troll, I read your comments a lot and think you're a very knowledgeable person when it comes to tech... It's only your profile name that people hate, but if they read what you say, some might learn... I need you to trade mark the name "Nokiasoft" for me bud! Hahaha---- "NOKIASOFT" Windows new OEM... Hehehe

at TROLL: Why not make the difference yourself by changing your perception? Windows phone is trying to move forward, why not make a push up north instead of pulling down south?

Save your keystrokes. This one's a WP-hater troll through and through. If it's not Android, it must be rubbish to him.

hahaha you right. I always read PA everyday and it is very annoying to read comments that are laden with so much hate. It only shows their breed, pack of wolves. Maybe the weight of the bashing will have a corresponding value in cents.

Look I don't have anything against windows phone, tried it wasn't for me. But that comment, really? That like instead of saying a Ford Escort is slow you'd say it moves at a comfortable pace. The point is not everyone is going to like everything. If someone wants to dislike something it's their right as much as it is for someone else to like something. Personally I usually don't comment on something I have no interest in unless I see what I perceive to be an error. Otherwise it'd be like a bunch of Vikings fans going into a Packers bar and trying to convert them.

@VZWuser76:

you already said that not everyone is going to like everything. My point was, if you do not like a certain platform you can voice your discontent but not through bashing. There is a difference between constructive criticism and destructive trolling.

You have no clue as usual. There will be a third OS that will occupy the "Sprint position" A solid 3rd place alternative to Android and IOS, and it will be Window phones.

its been gone since yesterday, before apples' event, you can guess why. It was supposed to be antitroll measures but to me it seems more like encouraging trolls.

Clearly, your opinion is flawed. Stop making us laugh. Instead of arguing subjectively, learn to face the facts, retard. Oh, but I almost forgot. You're too immature to understand what I just said, and probably can't even develop any constructive argument because judging by your grammar and vocabulary, you sound like a mentally unstable kid who's so full of hate that all you can ever do is throw up sh!t from your mouth. What a terrible childhood you must've gone though! I'm going to say this again, fair and square. Truth hurts, I know. Your bullsh!t isn't enlightening us in any way. So, the least you can do is STFU or GTFO!
