I’m strangely dranw to the new Nokia phone, which is a bit weird but heyho. Anyone else think this actually looks like a pretty awesome phone and am I crazy to go and buy one?
Seems weird to go for a Windows Phone after investing in Android apps which I can use on another phone.
But I hate the idea of making a choice based on being tied into one ecosystem rather than going for the phone I want most. That’s like being an APple owner.
I think it looks like a quality phone, there is no doubt it is a great bit of kit and clearly ahead of Apple.
But, running Windows 8 feels like a gamble. Is it going to get the support of developers? I think it will have all the important apps up and running but ultimately it will depend on what you need it for.
Wait until it’s priced up. That might make the decision easy for you!
It would seem premature to write off Microsoft + Nokia imo, these are two big companies with a lot of resources. Windows is still the most popular (desktop?) OS in the world.
I also quite like the Nokia music thingy too – you get free streaming Spotify style mobile music thrown in?
Don’t Sony have some kind of music deal too? The Xperia phones have come along way.
