Absolutely @EightyNine I think that Microsoft has to maintain the market share of its core products, and realizes that the potentiality of losing customer (both Apple and Android) to new market upstarts has caused a shift in Microsoft strategy for the mobile marketplace. With the small market share that they have, I hope they don't abandon the platform altogehter. I like option availability in the mobile OS space.
personally I hate the windows 8 phone. There seems to be a desktop style page missing and those tiles are just horrid. I have windows 8 pc and happy with it just the phone version. Android all the way for myself!
