  1. I really wish you guys would stop going on about Windows Phone 7. After two years it has effectively 0% market share and neither the platform nor the handsets compare well against those with iOS or Android.

    WP7 far too little, far too late.

  2. Well, nice to know Avro can troll you guys as well as over on the Verge….

    Anyway, I just wanted to comment on the discussion about other manufacturers supporting WP8.

    I disagree with the comment about Samsung not being fully behind Win8 and WP8, for two reasons.

    #1) Samsung is a long time PC makers, really the only major handset maker with experience making PCs. With the level of integration Win8 & WP8 are going to offer (if the rumours are to be believed) it would make sense that they would want to exploit that to the maximum, especially as they also make the largest of the “3 screens” as well.

    #2) The Starbucks Theory. Why is there a Starbucks on every corner? Because it’s better to compete against yourself, than against an actual competitor. Ergo, why wouldn’t Samsung (and HTC for that matter) want consumers to be faced with a choice between a Samsung Android Device and a Samsung Windows Device? That’s much better for their bottom line than a Samsung Android Device and a Nokia Windows Device.

    Just my .02. Love the show, and thanks for giving WP a fair shake.

  3. Funny that you consider stating the truth to be trolling.
