if uber dumps google maps for bing maps for their apps, it is going to become a painful experience.

dang why dont they do it sooner so i can own a legendary Nokia again. im buying a phone this month, cant wait that long.

main thing i hated in windows phone is, its home window looks like girls desktop overflowing with icons. i like clean home window with few main icons.

Saw a post in another thread about MS planning more layoffs especially in the devices section... looks like they really will abandon Windows on phones, like Nokia abandoned the N900 linux phone :(

Considering they are making more money (more than a billion per year i believe) from android devices... makes perfect sense. lol.

Nadella: Microsoft to focus on Windows phone flagships, business phones, and budget phones
From now on, Microsoft plans to streamline its phone portfolio. The company is looking forward to focusing on three major categories: value phones for customers on a budget (providing "the communications services they want"), phones for business users (offering "the best management, security and productivity experiences"), and flagship handsets (which, according to Satya Nadella, Windows fans "will love").
No Midrangers phones.
