Hope to see other carriers follow suit. Really, I'd like to see subsidies and exclusives come to an end as well, and just have financing options available like T-Mobile does.

It takes a village to sell phones. You need buy in from the manufactures, mobile companies and the retail outlets. With those elements in place and a great phone and OS the public will buy. Nokia and Windows phone beats iPhone and Android. The public just needs the chance to experience the phone without retail salespeople making stupid statements. Such as the windows phone is buggy, no apps or just get an iPhone because we know better.

Windowsphone devices are gaining respect in their own right.. I'm not concerned if WP beats the competing I just want to see WP get more respect from developers, OEM's, Carriers, sales associates, and Microsoft... When WP reaches critical mass then a chain reaction will happen.. I'm positive we will get what we want from a mobile device, and we won't have to settle for only two options.. Two boring options.

And i believe in 3-4 years WP will easily overtake apple for the 2nd spot if not the 1st

Why not sooner as Nokia has more and more money to spend on marketing their sexy and gorgeous device's?

Best regards!

And that is why Apple will eventually struggle down the road. Maybe not now but eventually something will pop up

I saw boost from android sales when major apps supported android. If major apps supported wp, it will definitely surpass iOS. Wp is a very good platform, it only needs good apps to keep it from gaining more traction.

It already has good apps. Granted not official versions, but functional third party ones for the rare ones that aren't supported.
I personally have never understood the "app-lust". I use my phone like my computer: Internet Explorer for anything online-related, Office for documents, and the individual games for entertainment, and Zune or WMP for onboard media.

The windows phone probably has 90% of the major apps from the original companies. What is missing are the apps from smaller companies. You want a fitbit, onstar or a similar specialized app you still have to wait. Instagram is the most famous notable missing app at the moment. Depending on ones needs these misses can be important. However if you care more about the larger general subject apps...windows phone have them.

Don't let one or two missing apps or people telling you the windows phone is bad. They just want to stop you finding and discovering a great smartphone.
