Windows "Does Windows Phone need Google and its services to be successful? No. The fate of Windows Phone and its adoption in the marketplace does not rest in the hands of Google. Microsoft itself holds the key to Windows Phone becoming a successful platform, rapid evolution of its cloud services and integration with the rest of the MS eco system." Good editorial on Google killing AES support for consumers and how it affects Windows Phone, by WPCentral's Robert Brand.

By all accounts the Lumias are selling quite well, it may be a bit premature to count them out yet. However, Nokia had to really really lower the price to the point where their margins must be wafer thin. At least with AT&T they had to undercut the iPhone/GS III by $100, yet either of those phones are having no problem moving their inventories keeping their original margins.

Well, they fail. But that said, Apple has a huge margin on their phones. So if you earn $100 less for a comparable phone, you still make a mere mortal's profit I guess.
