Troll is paid to do what he does in order to keep conversations going. Every WP article, he's right there spot on to put his .02$ BS. Its suspicious because he's seems to be the top advocater of WP hate. And it probably doesn't matter how good WP is because that's what he's paid to do, downplay both MS and Nokia.

I call "bologna." Or "baloney." Unless you have a source don't misrepresent what the OEM are doing.

HTC is introducing a new phone on a new carrier, there are rumors of a possible new Samsung on the way, and Huawei and Acer are indicating handsets either for this year or early 2014. That said, HTC is struggling and one would not blame them for cutting their line to just the bare bones while trying to maximize the One's.

Don't have the data at my disposal, but some reports are that contrary to popular opinion or the best wishes of the competition, WP8 is in fact growing and at a better clip than Android or iPhone.

Certainly must be tough swimming against a tide of articles such as this that state the obvious that isn't at all obvious.
