PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Huge swathes of the interface are remarkable only by their familiarity: a home screen with a grid of apps; a single navigation button to take you back to this screen or alternatively to a multi-tasking screen by way of a long press; and a top-to-bottom pull-down for notifications and quick access to settings. It's basic, but it represents pretty much what all these new operating systems are supposed to be: ways of getting functionality that is at least close to Android but without all the licensing costs associated with running Google services." A lobotomised iOS/Android mashup. This is completely void of personality. Still, it looks like this is Samsung's future (guess who was wrong).

You mean Windows Phone 8 can be shipped on 100$ hardware?

Will believe when see it!

(Talking about UNSUBSIDIZED price...)

Windows Phone 8 is hardware hog (still!) not suitable for lowend.

Windows Phone 7 was utter dream pipe on low end. WinP8 is better, but not enough. (And high end do not make you dominant player -> look at Apple).
