Would you move from Android or iOS to Windows Phone 8: Poll results
posted by Ray S. / Jun 25, 2012, 9:46 AM
Anyways, shortly after the announcement, we decided to ask you if you would actually abandon your beloved Android or iPhone in order to get a WP8-powered device, when those become available. Interestingly, it looks like most of you would, as 1021 of you (35.61% of all votes) have stated their readiness to jump their current ship and hop onto the new one.
737 of all voters (25.71%), however, have decided to not let all the hype cloud their judgement, and are more willing to wait for the next iPhone or Androids before making a choice.
Not far behind are those guys who weren't all that impressed, saying that they are perfectly satisfied by their current smartphone. These guys represent 699 of all voters, or 24.38%.
So, as a conclusion, we can safely say that the "new" kid on the block seems to be getting more and more popular with you guys. Another important fact, indicated by your votes, is that we'll soon have to find another favorite female actress to distract you from the other answers. Now, if you'll excuse us, but the boss is closing the office early today and we have to be gone in 60 seconds.
Would you move from Android or iOS to Windows Phone 8?
Absolutely, I can't stop staring at those Live Tiles!
Nope. I've got everything I need right here in my pocket.
Not sure. I need to see the new iPhone and Androids first...
I would rather have Angelina Jolie!

I too would rather have Angelina Jolie. I would rather Scarlett Johansson or Charlize Theron though.

*Biased poll! Most of those who voted yes were WP7 users and Nokia fanboys.

I have a Windows Phone currently and was debating on switching to the new iPhone depending on how good it was. Until I saw Windows Phone 8. Now the iPhone will have to be absolutely unbelievably good for me to switch from the Windows Phone ecosystem.

I would make to the switch to Windows Phone 8 from Android. I currently own the Galaxy Nexus and love it. BUT I want to take a spin on the new and improved Windows OS. Can't wait. Just hope IE 10 is just as fluid and efficient as Chrome Beta.

Will still wait until all the new features, not just the ones announced for developers, are in play. Yep, most likely in on WP8, but I am fighting to keep an open mind. Also want more hardware options for Windows Phones. I miss a real keyboard.....

"Microsoft stole the show last week..." How is it possible to steal your own show?

I'm not sure I'm ready for a switch to W8. After switching from an Apple computer to Windows years ago, I've become quite fond of an open platform. I have equally enjoyed how open Android is for my phone. I like doing what I want with my phone, whenever I want. Microsoft has poised themselves to be more closed. This may work for Apple, but I have reservations on this direction for MS. So currently, I will stay with Android until I see final results. John B.
