I agree with the after 4 years of iPhones comment. I might make a change. I have had an iPhone since the beginning. Although I like Apple products and have plenty in the house including 2 mac computers, 3 or 4 different iPods and two iPhone 4s. I think it might be time for a change. I will wait till the next iPhone comes out to see if the screen is bigger. I have a feeling IOS 6 will just add some new features. I'm ready for a new operating system all together. Nothing wrong with apple. Just my inner geek being bored.

I can not tell you the software I bought before when I had previous gen iPhones, nor would I care to reinstall them since I do not even recall what they are. 90% of the apps on my iPhones are free, I would imagine they would be free on Window's OS as well. If there is something important enough that I need on the phone, if it is useful I would not mind purchasing it again. Since I would sell my iPhone I would sell my iTunes account with it (removing all private and personal info) because I have no use for it, then it is just a matter of repurchasing on the new platform.

WP7 is interesting, in that it is not interesting yet continues to attract users. It's beige squares and dull opaque backgrounds somehow lure us into them. I think that the people heading to WP7 are a niche market. iOS and Android are so much more powerful and advance than WP7, it's almost pointless to compared them. I predict that Apple will lose growth in iPhones by 2014. The only reason growth is going on now is because of market/carrier expansion. WP7 will continue to grow, but won't make it past 10% market share by 2016.

Oh the fanboys...lol.
I'm done with Apple after this contract is up on my iPhone 4. I'm sick of having to deal with Apple overriding my ability to do what I want with my phone after every patch and then having to wait for a new jailbreak to come out, etc. Just another way Apple tries controlling everything in the world. You do it their way or go elsewhere is the drift I get from them. I'm not a mac fan, but I've enjoyed the iPhone for several years, but I'm done as well. I'm not stating this as a sob story and I know some fanboy will just say see ya later, but whatever.
I've heard great things about windows phone and to be honest I like Android on my HP Touchpad as an OS better than iOS anyhow. So either way windows phone or android will be next in line for me.

The title doesn't match the article. Article says that WP7 will be the number 2 OS, and nothing about surpassing iOS. Granted, if iOS falls to the number 3 spot, then yes the title would be correct. But that is not what the article is saying. Please fix misleading title.

Microsoft keeps pushing this bogus story. As long as there are the same Windows headaches on the phones as they have on the desktop- IT'S NOT HAPPENING.
Developers are not embrassing Windows mobile OS. All the suckers who get tricked into buying one will join the Android users begging developers to release their content in the Android store because it's mostly knock offs and shovelware.

A windows phone would be my 2nd choice if I absolutely had to ditch Apple. I actually don't hate the one's I've seen.
