    How long do you think Windows Mobile Phone will survive?
    Does it have any chance against Andorid and iOS?

    Depends on how many devs they get on board and how long crapple lets their stuff get stagnant.

    IOS really can't multitask very well from what I hear, but there's a ios7 update coming on the horizon that might change things.  If not, WP8 might have a chance.

    I'm still waiting for another WebOS phone, still miss my pre.

    I cannot trust Microsoft because of the short lifetime of their applications, they never had a stable product that lives a long time. Just google list of the discontinued Microsoft product, even recently I got same problem with Google too (RIP Google Reader or Google Health).

    You have a good point, I remember it was version 7 or 7.5 that couldn't be upgraded to 8, and those phones were fairly new.  That's a shame.

    I do see that Windows phones are growing in popularity though.

    Third is good for them, because they currently have only 2 competitor, iOS and Android! (Somehow it means they are first from bottom of the list 😀 )
