2012 Carl Zeiss Photo Contest: Nokia Lumia Windows Phones welcome


Wow that article spelled gloom and doom for Microsoft their wording is soooo negative...... Personally speaking worst case scenario I'll go down with the effing ship because screw google and screw apple

It was another Microsoft bashing ZDNet piece where they included everything that connects to the internet. Lame, spun journalism.

Strictly speaking, no. But if you add in smartphones and tablets, Microsoft has been behind for over a year now...
