Microsoft can throw as much money as they want at the phone companies, I still won't be buying a windows phone.


It doesn't matter what phone you buy. M$ will get money no matter what phone you buy.

I guess that is there intention, but I won't buy a phone with their OS. I don't like that interface at all, plus I like the freedom of Android.

Ive been looking at the xperia z1s but that price tag... I know I want to switch providers so ill need to pay some money for a phone but $528 is too steep.


z1s you mean the z1 compact ? It will go down in price rapidly. The z1 was 650 at first 3 months later its 499 I guess in May the Compact will be 399.

Sony Windows Phone for me.



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

Not sure stockholders would view this as a good investment.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

I'd be down for a Xperia WP.



This is a good idea, they have grown market share in all markets as of recent. However you got the same haters that never have something nice to say. This will make it so people who Like Samsung can stay with Samsung. This is as simple as making more options and a good idea after the market share they have been gaining. However the spin is, Blah blah blah. Another reason I don't stop by this site to much anymore. Same people, different day. I never stop in Sony threads, yet seems to be a daily routine for some in here, to constantly bash the other side. Nice job, we notice you don't like MS on the other 1,000 comments you made, we get the point. It's not as if your comment ever changes or is unbiased.



Um, throwing money at things won't solve problems. They are better off using that money to develop apps for Windows. I read that Apple spent $10bn on helping develop apps for the istore.

In some weird cases MS gets more money from a Android sale than Google.
