Windows I wish more people who work or have worked for large technology companies were as open, honest, and excited as Steve Wozniak still gets over new technology and gadgets. He recently bought a Nokia Lumia 900 - and he's loving it. So much so, in fact, that he claims it's better than Android and iOS in many respects.

Your analysis sounds more like your desire than anything else. For some reason there exists a group of supposed "tech fans" that spend their time rooting for certain tech to fail.

I estimate that 90% of all "WP is doomed" posts has an underlying subtext of "YES!!! I can't wait for WP to disappear from the world forever!!!" as if their own selfworth would be enhanced by such an outcome.

I think Windows 8 will provide a big boost to WP8, and in the US, I think Verizon's announced backing of WP8 will provide a boost as well.

Also, be careful of declaring Android a healthy market, as only Samsung is making real money there. All other OEMs are struggling or outright losing money. And Google itself isn't seeing much return on Android either (mainly because in the mobile space there are so many apps that take the place of mobile web sites, and it's difficult for Google to serve up ads in those apps).
