I wish they would add Jason Ward.
Worst CEO ever!
Sure he get's some blame for rebooting the kernal core and miss steps that followed. But it's the current management that swung the axe, so that falls on Satya Nadella not Steve Ballmer. There has been to date almost zero consistency in messaging under Satya Nadella. The only portion that has been consistent is the enterprise focus when it comes to windows 10 mobile.
And what else you would use there without any reasonable apps?
Windows fans have always wanted a real pocketable PC, and that just may be coming... The evolution CONTINUES!..... 950 just got updated yesterday. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
Works like a champ, thought..
If MS had released WM10 at this state with the 950/XL, and followed up with some new devices shortly after, everything would be great now... I can finally say that WM10 is a great mobile OS now.... Just as they give up on it.😂😂😂😂
Thanks for your interest!
Yes, there is an Elite x3 coming that has been approved by Verizon. We have partnered with Microsoft and they will be our primary distribution channel. It will be marketed thru the Microsoft stores or via Microsoft.com/store. It should be added any day. I am out of the US right now, but will update you once I return.
