PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Bloomberg: "Microsoft, which has tightly controlled the number of ARM-based devices it is supporting at first to ensure quality, opted not to work with HTC after initial discussions with the company, said two people familiar with the matter. The world's largest software maker decided HTC didn't have the sales volume needed and had less tablet experience than some of the other vendors it could choose to work with for the first round of devices, the people said." HTC was the first company to build a Microsoft-powered smartphone. Now, they're not allowed to build Windows 8 tablets.

I don't know if Nokia will release a CDMA Windows phone in the US. But do note that Verizon has already said some positive things about Windows Phone 8.

I detest the way Verizon treats their customers so I likely won't go there. I'd sooner go back to T-Mobile or even AT&T.

Sprint, I don't think so. Sprint has put itself in a position in which they will go bankrupt unless they can make the iPhone deal work out.

I doubt that will happen. At worst, Verizon will buy them out and I'll be able to break out of my contract and move on.
