PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has just sent out a few preliminary comments about the company's performance during the fourth quarter of 2012. Nokia's figures are a good indicator for how well Windows Phone 8 is doing, and, in all honesty, I'm not exactly blown away. Apparently, neither was Nokia itself, since the company decided to redefine their Asha phones from feature phone to smartphone to prop up their smartphone sales figures.

So "not on developers radars" doesn't indicate a crisis? You claim you said "nothing near" that, which I think is dishonest.

Its amusing how you run from your own statements like this. You should be a US politician.

Also, you never answered my question. What exactly did you mean by that statement, if I've got it so wrong?

Eh, no. It means WP isn't a priority for developers. The lack of application updates, as well as the fact that WP applications from popular services/companies always come in third (if at all), far behind iOS and Android, is proof enough. Trying to argue otherwise is insanity.

The "crisis" nosnense is something you deliberately made up to make it easier to refute. A very old, but thinly veiled, discussion tactic. The people on here are smarter than this, and you're only making a fool out of yourself.

You could argue that your statement about "it not being on developer's radars" is itself inflammatory and exaggerated so that you could make a point. Sure, a very few applications are not available, but in general, that statement is simply not true.

WP8 not being on developers radar (as you incorrectly claim) is indeed a crisis, but if you want to split hairs, you can replace all mentions of "crisis" with "WP8 not being on developers radars" because my rebuttal still holds in either case.

I hope you enjoyed your little semantics game, but it makes no difference.
