Windows 8 is no iphone killer

    We can argue and debate about whether or not Windows Phone will overtake the iphone or not until the iphone 5gs comes out.

    What no one is looking at is the obvious elephant in the room which is android, which in fact has overtaken the iphone. Now, 10 percent of android usage is with android 4, the vast majority are android 2 versions. Considering that the user satisfaction of android is a somewhat distant third behind Windows Phone and iphone, there is a HUGE potential for market share for Windows Phone to dine on android's share.

    One of the problems that Windows 8 has is that it has no central focus on Music, Video, and Books/Mags, unlike the iPhone. There's Windows Media Player, but it's not as integrated as iTunes is. And it's not as central to the functioning of the Windows Phone. Ideally, a Windows Phone 8 or Tablet 8 doesn't need a central manager, but we all know people want to backup their device to someplace other than the cloud.

    It's a huge first step, but it needs a lot more fine tuning before it can compete with the iPad. And certainly, prices will have to come down on tablets.
    You are right windows media player is no iTunes. Zune is better. I have used both iTunes and Zune software and I prefer Zune. (I will say when it fest came out it was garbage but they have fixed all the issues and now I feel that it works better and looks better as well) my only complaint is the minimize and maximize buttons.

    As an android user, I can say that the iPhone has certain advantages over Android. Now, I would not consider switching, but for people who don't care for real multitasking, rooting, cooking, and flashing, I think an iPhone may be a better choice. When putting WP8 against iOS and android, it has a few advantages, but has no significant edge over either OS.
    As an iPhone user, and previous android user. I can say iPhone is nothing but hype. If you are a simple user then maybe you would enjoy it but windows 8 has more features to make their UI user friendly. But to claim the iPhone works is bullshit. I've had more problems with my iPhone 4 than my incredible 2. It's shut off randomly several times. It's deleted my content once. Completely wiped my phone. It has moved my contacts around and out the Cs under Ks more than several times. It has randomly synced when I didn't want it to. It has sat there and ran horribly slow where I can barely text, and I have always had problems with the touch screen while on the phone. Apple users are ignorant. They just buy it because the hype. Apple as a company is a joke. Not revolutionary. Is there an apple hate thread I can rant on? Or a an apple lovers thread that I can start arguments on?!

    To the user who says the iPhone doesn't work, how do you explain the millions of users who use the iPhone and love it. My wife has had very few issues and her phone is about 3.5 years old now.

    If you asked crack users if it was more satisfying than a beer - what do you think they would say?

    Does this mean we should all be using it?

    Those kind of things mean very little.
