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.

He didn't insinuate anything of the sort. He merely said it wasn't on developer's radar at this very moment...it doesn't indicate a "crisis".

It also doesn't mean that landscape can't change - you could all of a sudden see a zerg rush of developers flocking to it in some foreseeable future.

It's just not there now. Nice twist of words, though. Very paranoia-like.

I didn't twist his words. If the WP8 is not on developers' radar, then that could be construed as a crisis. In any case, Thom's statement is absolutely not true, so it doesn't matter.

Amusingly, it's only yourself & Nelson who are doing that.

In any case, Thom's statement is absolutely not true, so it doesn't matter.


Then why are yourself & Nelson so adamant that it does matter?

Notice how Thom never answered any of my points and instead brought up a semantic argument.

His statement boiled down to there being a lack of interest (which regardless of how you both spin it, is a crisis) and pointed to a lack of WP7 apps being upgraded to WP8 by current developers.

I gave many counter points to why this is not exactly the case, yet received no response.

This is how things go at OSNews, you write an entire comment, and people nitpick one or two things and ignore the rest of it.

The problem is that your premise is wrong. When you put words in my mouth that I have never said, and even after pointing that out continue to dig yourself in, I'm at a loss. Why should I have to defend something I never said?
