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.

When you have more than one competitor in a market, it forces them to improve their products year after year
Nope, not even close. In France, in Switzerland, there are three phone carriers, and prices are high while services are low. With so few players, competition deosn't work and price-fixing can be set, even implicitely. And that is just one easy example. You need more than "more than one" : you need four, five, more non-ridiculously-small players.

Phones are getting better, more powerful, more capable.

And this is absolutely not an argument in favor of Microsoft's WP7 and its tight, restrictive control of the hardware platforms allowed.
