    I think M$ really has faith in this I think that's why they don't care about the #s right now, and I think in time they will be a top copetitor but only time will tell I think the only thing they need is some updates to really catch up and get ahead becuz the platform is really unique and nice, I'd love to get one when they come to sprint...

    Yes and no. A group of people had started working on these things because they were worried MS wasn't going to keep patching and updating WP7. But they got the people to back off offering such things and promised to updated WP7 and keep improving it.

    im not saying per say the phones will fail but until the devs can work their magic things might be a bit stale.
    i dont' know their app store is flying and at this rate will pass webos by mid January. Plus they got a bunch of phones scheduled to come out. Asus E600. They got a China launch coming up apparently with Lenovo, Huawei, and ZTE making phones. one article mentioned ACER as on board to make phones . Dell has a phone coming out too (although it looks ugly to me.) So i think in Volume they got a lot of momentum. Whether that translates into sales who knows.

    according to yahoo microsoft has $42.35 Billion dollars in cash. I think they can afford it. Google could afford to have android on like 1 or 2 phones for a year and not get paid for the O.S.

    I know for one thing Telus extended the "buy a WP7 phone get an XBox free" promo. But that's probably for Christmas.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLI… T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    some interesting comments that indicate Microsoft is taking a long term approach and likely and thus is happy with it's sales

    Achim Berg,
    corporate vice president,
    Microsoft Mobile Communications Business and Marketing Group.

    "We know we have tough competition, and this is a completely new product. We’re in the race – it’s not a sprint but we are certainly gaining momentum and we’re in it for the long run."

    "Yes, and I think our expectations are realistic for a new platform. We started fresh with Windows Phone 7, and it’s a different kind of phone. Measuring for success is more long term than short term. "

    "We’re comfortable with where we are, and we are here for the long run; Windows Phone 7 is just the beginning."

    "We are on a path to begin releasing the first of several updates in the next couple of months, and several more mobile operators around the world will introduce Windows Phone 7 on their network in 2011 and we will have a broader portfolio of devices from phone manufacturers at different price points delivering on our commitment of providing customers choice."
