I don't know but it's obvious that people will choose the low end Android over it. They need to come up with something really different thing, differnet idea and much more differnet technology in order to get back it's name and position. It's sure it will take a lot of time.

Sounds like you never used any low end Android handset. They are not that cheap and still lag horribly.

What I was thinking. They can really do some cutting here and there and make a better budget device.

How much will including 512 MB RAM cost them? Not much. And the smaller 3.7" display was good enough.

I haven't tried Windows Phone 8, however WP7 has been far more reliable and bug-free than any other Android product that I've had. Windows may not have the apps but a crash-free gadget does have its advantages.

Funny how tech sites never mention the fact that 75% of android users cannot install updated google services such as google NOW, Chrome web browser, google calendar, and YouTube for Google TV.
