you know i have a windows phone and i mostly love it, prob wouldnt switch to IOS or Andriod but its def got its drawbacks esp when it comes to support for apps ( useful ones too nobody cares about 95% of them ) and support for accessories. Until they fix this and do it soon, i dont see them gaining too much more market share. this is a waste of billions of dollars.
