OMG , Nokia nailed it. Now Microsoft should sit up and deliver more features to Windows phone OS (notification bar, better volume controls etc.

Nokia is the BEST! I don't think we've seen that much dedication before, especially coming from an OEM. M$ should be really glad to have Nokia under its arm. Much love and great job Nokia!

WOW by this windows os is one of the fast developing OS in the world !!!!

No it's not... Three years later is has market share under 7%.

Market share is not a determining factor of how fast an OS develops. It only shows how much of a portion of the market the phone has claimed. Its a totally different category.
22. PapaSmurf (Posts: 4173; Member since: 14 May 2012)
Alright, so in three years, they've made little changes. I don't see how it's the fastest developing OS. Windows App Store is still lacking tremendously, which is why so many are turned off by the OS.

I disagree smurf... they have made big changes in the last year alone. I remember getting my l920 and it needed major help in many categories but by the time I got the l10 20 it was much better and I see it again with this. Ext round of phones. Dog it all you want but it's a wonderful OS that is getting to where it needs and if apple doesn't start moving I can see wp moving into second place within another year or so.

LMAOOOO... Now go back to your Google Search Box.

Now WP deserves to be considered as a outstanding OS.

the nokia tablet runs the new and improved Windows 8.1 on arms CPU operating system. This OS only runs Apps and programs designed to run on a touch screen Tablet like the Ipads and Android tablets do. it will not run any Desktop Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7 desktop programs but it does come Pre loaded with Microsoft Home /Student/ and Windows "Outlook" making it a
tablet a busuines Person or college student can use to make documents and presentations.

Yes! More apps means more OS competition, which is always good for the consumer. Me, I prefer Android because I like to tinker and flash roms.

Hopefully that "coming weeks" will not turn to 6 months

Good job Nokia! I am really excited in getting one of the new phones.
13. PapaSmurf (Posts: 4173; Member since: 14 May 2012)
I'm glad WP8/W8 is finally getting these apps, but damn that took way too long.

1. can WP8 play videos formats other than MP4?
2. can it be save to phone storage / sd card (assuming you are downloading it via app)?
23. microsoftnokiawin (Posts: 649; Member since: 30 Mar 2012)
nokia is doing so much while microsoft aren't giving a single SH*T about developing wp
24. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 1511; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
Bring more & more & more apps like this.
Credo where are you my dear friend? Download all this apps. :)
25. londoner (Posts: 30; Member since: 12 Sep 2013)
The reason am leaving my L920 is for one app...
When Grindr is coming to wp8?
27. PapaSmurf (Posts: 4173; Member since: 14 May 2012)
I think you should have kept that to yourself...
31. Ty_inCA (Posts: 5; Member since: 13 Oct 2013)
Seriously! I love my 1020, but the lack of that or jack'd is kinda a hassle. How hard can it be to port an app? Whichever shows up first will end up with 100% market share of young gay guys with WP.
41. londoner (Posts: 30; Member since: 12 Sep 2013)
Yes, that's truht, a lot of my friends likes the wp8 style, far from this, there's just a few apps for gay people like scruff which needs to be upfated and Grindr that is not there. They will go for a wp if hose apps are on the market place.
It also, might help a lot of guys to get out...lol

Suddenly, RT doesn't suck much anymore. Thanks much to Nokia.
37. Dastrix (Posts: 392; Member since: 23 Nov 2012)
Glad to hear that jsdechavez. You used to not like WP/Windows RT before. xD
