Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam. With iOS, [Apple] just added a fifth row of icons. Android is... kind of a mess. Look at Samsung - there's clearly mutiny going on. The only OEM making money off of Android is Samsung." There's truth to all these statements, which makes it all the more surprising that Microsoft appears to be unable to properly capitalise on them. Sure, WP appears to be doing well in a few select markets, but by no means the kind of success Microsoft and (Nokia) was banking on. Microsoft will pull through. Nokia on the other hand...

Maybe that has to do with the draconian policies that these 2 carriers have on activating a CDMA2000 based device on their network? (Look at the concessions Google had to make for Galaxy Nexus to be on Verizon)


Yeah, and while Google is bitching and whining about how hard that is, Apple somehow manages to get a stock phone on both of those carriers every year.
