Hopefully, Windows 10 for mobile will be the harbinger that increases Windows Phone market share from the single digits world wide. I'm rooting for you, Windows.

I'm really rooting for WP (and BB for that matter) to find an opportunity to hit upwards of 20% marketshare - hate the duopoly...

Agreed. Duopolies are not good for the consumer. The more choices we have, the better.

I would actually try WP, but even playing with it at the kiosk at the mall, the lack of apps and games is the only reason I haven't given it a shot. The WP OS is different - I respect that, and please don't take my comment regarding lack of apps as trolling, I really wish there was more 3rd party dev support for WP and BB. I'm at the point of suggestion to others who want something was than android to try WP or BB (not just iOS). I see windows 10 as a great spark to reignite interest, but BB seems to already ready to jump ship to android (sorry meanest, unfortunately that's how it seems).

I wouldn't take your comment any such way. I wish both BB10 and Windows had better 3rd party dev support as well. BlackBerry does seem intent on making an Android handset...but they have promised to continue to stand behind BB10 as well. At this point, I have to to take their word for it. Windows 10 for Mobile does seem to be something to reignite the Windows platform...let's hope it does.

Windows Phone has all the major apps except snapchat. It's not really lacking in games either(although it did not get Angry Birds 2, but I hear it really isn't that great).

I disagree. Smart phone manufacturers and ESPECIALY the consumers, would be much better off if windows didn't exist. They bring nothing special to the table aside from a huge portfolio of patents, ready to sue and ban.

I really want Android and iOS to shrink cause they both are copying each other with no new innovation! :/

Brazil is the seventh world economy, but the money corruption takes all our money. I personally never liked the iPhone, it offers little for the price. Apple = heavy marketing and software. Soon I will take the Z5

Our tax burden is among the highest in the world. Brazil's iPhone is the most expensive in the world. the government is killing us. Brazil is becoming a Venezuela with this government that has been accused of rigging the elections!

Search the Internet and you'll see that the Brazilian pay 200% more on the iPhone than Americans!
