Well.... nice start. The pure volume of this first release list show's that in 2 more months, this will be a fun, fun list. Liking WP 8's chances more and more all the time. Wouldn't it be fun if BB10 was also a hit, and there were 4 great choices that survived and thrived? Even if Android remained #1 and iOS remained #2, a 40%-25%-15%-15% split with 5% left for other would really provide for great options in the years to come!! Oh, the OS trash talking we would have on PA.........

It is not me but I am thumbing YOU down for "Android Troll" comment. How do you know it is android fan and not iFan ? I am Android fan but considering to switch to WP8 when I see how great it is going to be. And I believe some other android fans as well, because we use brain. Not like iFans who stays always with Apple no matter what.

I don't want to generalize here, but in my experience, Android fans tend to be much more volatile than Apple fans, which lends credence to the theory that it is an Android fan that is responsible for the thumbs down. Also, as Android has a higher market share, it is statistically more likely that it is an Android fan.

who here is more volatile than Taco, Gallito, or Ardent? lol There are definitely more active android members, which is normal considering how much more popular Android is, but on a general level the iNutters keep the crazy notch set a few degrees higher than everyone elses. I'm keeping an eye on W8. More for a tablet than a phone right now, but I always got my eyes on new tech. :)
