Windows "Microsoft's phone chief hates to call the new Nokia Lumia 521 cheap, but the lower-priced smartphone launching in the United States is the company's boldest move yet to win mass market share from leaders Apple and Samsung. The world's largest software company has so far focused on putting its Windows Phone software into expensive, high-end devices - chiefly from Nokia and HTC. But the new model will go on sale at Walmart later this month at an unsubsidized price under $150, relatively cheap for a new phone running up-to-date software without a long-term contract." Windows Phone is racing to the bottom just as fast as Android - with the difference being that expensive Android devices do not fail to sell.

Windows Phone pervasively supports multitasking. It supports a variety of background tasks including always on turn by turn location, VOIP support, and background audio.

The browser,...
It supports most mature standards, is fast, and hardware accelerated.
...
Whereas on Android, I've experienced extreme lag typing in an address bar on Chrome. Plus its never panned and pinched as smoothly as on Windows Phone.

I'm glad I'm reaching Tony Swash's status on OSNews where annoying little trolls like you don't even answer the comment, instead waste time showing everyone that you can find a couple adjectives.

Your response seems like a Microsoft PR department response filled with buzz words.
