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.

So your theory is that the 4% of the population who have a WP7 device outnumbered the other 90% who have iOS or Android.

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.

I'll consider it. Now that they've optimized the home screen tiles (hey they do listen to feedback!), it's definitely on my list.

As much as I'm starting to like Microsoft's new direction with their devices, I just don't want to give up the Google ecosystem. Adding Google stuff to a Windows phone just doesn't appeal to me.

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.....

Get a DROID 4, it has the best keyboard on the market

"Microsoft stole the show last week..."

How is it possible to steal your own show?

There were other shows and events that week. He's saying Microsoft's Summit stole the attention from other news and events.

One could also ask, would you move from WP8 to ios or android? And the answer is NO. MSs ecosystem will be integrated into one: xbox, w8, and wp8. Just too awesome to pass.

I wonder how many women chose option #4? LOL. I have a WP. I'm happy. I'm okay with WP7.8

I would not switch to WP8.their UI is so plain , Simple & Dumb...I want something which can bring endless surprises & Google can do that ..

Endless Surprises ... I didn't know Willy Wonka made phones. What's so magical about the grid of icons that android copied from Apple?

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.

I'd honestly have to wait till it comes out, and play with a display model before I decide
