Naah, I don't see a future success between these two. At least not in the next 1-2 years.

I love my WP7 but have to agree. The small market of WP is dominated by Nokia and HTC, with Samsung a far third so I don't expect to see Samsung again anytime soon. Although I'm using HTC Radar as my first ever WP7 device, I love what Nokia is doing for the platform. So I'm content, especially since my next big upgrade will be a Nokia Apollo device LOL!

Always someone in question! I'm glad to see Samsung committed to success and seeing with windows platforms they will see no lawsuits between google and apple. Besides who is going to give Nokia competition.

So does this mean windows phone 7 will or will not get an update to windows 8?

I think all windows phone 7 devices wlll get the update

I thought the WP7 devices don't have the architecture required to run WP8, nevermind the power needed to pull off more advanced feaures like sysetm to system multiplayer?
If they do get the update, it'll be a neutered one...

I have not heard of a single test done of WP8 OS on present generation WP7 devices having been leaked or published so what you're saying is pure speculation at this point.
But like you, I also suspect there will be some aspects of WP8, maybe some apps, that will not run at an optimum in WP7 hardware.

Windows 8 tablet is going to be PRICEY and there's not much you can do with a Windows 8 tablet that you can't with a Android Tablet. For short, it will be a BIG FAIL imo.

I don't have definitive knowledge of what Windows 8 will provide, but I would speculate that you should be able to run pretty much all of the software on the tablet that you can on your PC (aside from any limitations that may be inherent with a tablet when compared to the specifications of a desktop of course, such as with demanding games).
But if I could run the full versions of Adobe CS5, Microsoft Office, and other software on it? And if I could just go online and download any Windows software for it, not being limited to an app marketplace? Man, I would be a happy camper.

You're comparing a desktop OS to a mobile OS? In no way could Android or iOS ever replaces a true multitasking operating system such as Windows or OSX

The Windows 8 Operating System isn't even out the door yet and already you are saying "For short, it will be a BIG FAIL". Now THAT statement could only have come from a troll LOL!

What a stupid opinion it is then. If you knew anything of worth on the subject, you would know that what you just said is a horrible lie. A scared liar, perhaps :-)

Only Nokia is really trying to push windows phone to the masses. They are the only OEM that is marketing windows phone to the max..HTC comes next, but far from Nokia's efforts. Don't get me started about Samsung or LG.

bring on diversity! an old wooden ship....
I love my Android, but would like Apple and Android to have some other competition out there for a better operating system.
Apple will continue to be stagnant and crappy all the while selling like crazy, however this might light a fire under them to actually make something innovative about their phone
Android will continue to be awesome, however this will push them to drive harder
a success in windows is a win for all in the phone world imo
