Really, lets stay serious and look at the company. It currently gets
completely erased by its (former?) MS top manager.

Take a look at the market shares of the different mobile OS's. It is pretty
simple to find out that not only this is a reason nobody really wants windows
on a phone.

And as we are talking they get cheaper and cheaper. Your argument sounds like
the famous "nobody needs more than 640 KByte of RAM"...

Well, buy Samsung then. It's best anyway ;-)

Guy, believe it or not, lots of such phones are out there. Look at the latest
market share analysis regarding Android. And they won't get less, whereas
phones you call a phone now will be vanished in around 1-2 years.

Obviously not, it is a computer you can do calls with. In fact its the
bleeding edge of technology nowadays.

Apple really nowhere has any point - besides creating religious backgrounds
You have a computer, so create the software like that. And if you do not want
to find out everybody including your neighbors dog reads your data (contacts,
pictures, emails, sms, name-one), then stop that cloud-sh*t.
skraw's 1. law of human life:
concentration leads to corruption.
(in every semantics of the words)
In this case: if you concentrate the data of millions of people in a "cloud"
hosted by name-one, you can be sure that the data gets corrupted there in the
sense of "stolen", "lost", "changed by accident or by intention".
