They jump on these developer devices and out-front state that if these were widely available they'll sell them, but a proven, stable, high-quality OS like windows phone they look down upon?

For shame

How is it a shame? No one wants to buy a Windows phone. They're gawdy. Proven? Phonescoop just linked an article a few weeks ago stating Google won't even bother making apps for it ( 642 ), because no one's using it. I can't wait to see what Mozilla comes up with. MORE open source is good,not bad. Unfortunately, since Mozilla is all about an open internet, AT&T would never adopt their phone, unless they could lock the bootloader, OS, and maybe even require a blood sample to turn it on.

Nokia has sold 10 million Windows Phone devices, and the Samsung Focus sold 2 million.,...that's a whole lot of 'nobodies'....

I don't agree with that, totally. A lot of people will not adopt Windows Phone, because Google will not develop apps for it. It's not that people aren't willing to switch, they enjoy using Google apps, and unfortunately, Google realizes this. Why not help keep the mobile environment a duopoly. People should want more variety to choose from. Windows Phone 8 is a great OS. Yes, it needs improvements in some areas, but it's a far cry from an OS that no one wants. Also understand, some features that have been touted with their new OS, have been available on Windows Phone since the WP 7.5 update.

Apps are the key for Windows Phone, not the OS itself.
