WP needs some variety it can't just be Nokia and lazy Samsungs if HTC, Sony, LG and Motorola all release flagship Windows Phones I'd stick with WP but looks like I'll be moving to Sony if their phones support AT&T bands or Apple if the iphone 6 is compelling

Lol!!!.. Like I said, I gotta have fun sometimes to... I knew there would be some ridiculous comments here, so.... ........ It's not like I'm proud of tho stupid poll, or think it means anything, because it doesn't.. It's just funny the way people respond to things...

Who cares if the WP version won this poll? We all know that the Android version will sell more. So relax your a$$es fandroids. The HTC W8 isn't going to sell big like its Android totting brother, it doesn't need to. WPs current growth is coming from the low to mid range phone's sales. The W8 is an example for all other WP OEMs on how to make a beautiful Windows Phone. Who cares if millions don't buy it? I will surely be buying it and I know that true WP fans will also be picking up this beast. So keep calm fandroids. No one is challenging your precious OS right now. Its still number one and will be for some time.

I'll buy it only if it has better camera than the Lumia 930...

It probably wont, but I really like the design and the looks of the One M8. So if the same is replicated with the W8, then to hell with the camera, the W8 it is!

They should do this with more phones. Have a windows and android option. Or maybe even dual boot. I doubt dual boot though. It is too bad it will be a Verizon exclusive. Other wise, it would be day one for me

Well, supposedly the WP versions will win everytime because us WP fans call MS to get PA to adjust the poll, and we all have 50 accounts each so that we can vote more...
