Verizon is getting the Pre3 when it comes out, and wants lots of HP business in the future. I don't think he means RIM when he talks about a third OS--Blackberry OS is a very simple OS and not really in the same category as Android and iOS.
Microsoft is taking a unique approach to marketshare .... pumping BILLIONS into Nokia (Sr. Managment at Nokia are now ex-MSFT execs ... so no chance of bias in Nokia’s selection of Win7).
If you can’t win marketshare - perhaps you can buy it.
Unfortunately, the marketplace response to the Win7 Mobile OS has been tepid, to say the least. I do not expect this to be ‘win’ for MSFT; and a loss for Nokia - and thousands of thier soon-to-be-ex-employees.
Sheese! Verizon in my market is the single most expensive carrier - I currently am Alltel - and we have no access to the ‘iPhone’ in this state (of course I understand Verizon is/has it now).
My current carrier will change to AT&T late this month or early March. We get new phones, etc.
I really don't mind my Android phone, but Google’s TOS for any of their apps includes ‘listening to my voice calls.’
I miss my Windows 6.5 phone and would have opted for an iPhone but too many applesauce extremists have completely driven me away from anything new from that company.
Frankly, in the long run I feel Apple is completely done as a corporation. In 30 years we'll all laugh at them like Atari.
I very much look forward to a new Windows Mobile 7 phone within the next month or so.
Verizon - and APPLE! - can eat me. I categorically refuse to do business with them.
Famous last words. What a dunce.
