    Unless you're waiting for cheap devices (Which is what MWC will bring with the Tango update) you'll be waiting until WP8 later this year, when you'll see a lot of hardware limitations go.

    Not really a surprise IMO :D
    I know Android phones are overpowered but everytime i see a high end WP8 phone costing as much as a high end Android and have specs of 2010 phones i run away. :rolleyes:

    Where did you see WP8 phones for sale? WP8 wasn't even released yet! And the upcoming "Tango" update isn't WP8. WP8's codename is "Apollo". :D

    Things don't work like that, Android's development may slow down, WP's development may accelerate.. it's a long race, lol.

    Thanks to Android's brilliant updating system people will still be trying to get Android v4 whilst v7 or so will be out, so I don't think there's much to worry about.

    Im not saying about the updates that will be pushed to the customers , that is not android's fault that people dont get updates on time it is manufacturer's fault
    im talking about the improvements android will make - android and ios already have a huge lead on windows and i dont see that changing anytime soon
    imo the biggest threat windows will be able to give right now is in the tablet race when windows 8 launches

    Quite simply, it won't change, no. But then again people seem to forget that Microsoft has a history of starting with products that are the underdog, and pumping billions into the product until it becomes successful. It happened with Windows, it happened with Windows Mobile, it happened with the Xbox, and it even happened with software like Office and IE. It could just as easily happen with Windows Phone. Hopefully the "eliminate competition" part doesn't happen or we will end up with another Windows Mobile 5 years down the line.
