Nice to hear but I hope that only Microsoft will pay the costs. If canon contributes in the expenses, I'll feel sorry for Canon.

Alien, 03 Jul 2014Actually I'm not excited at all.. WM sux BIG time. Canon, u disa... moreQuite true. Because smart people nowadays dont use WMobile. They use iPhones or WPhone 8/8.1. Stop messing with us. I choose a L1320 on top of SGS4/ iPhone 5 because of it's capabilities. You like android? Go with it. It's the best in stutter/force close as others said. Heck. Even a newly formatted android phone LAGS/stutters.

Geen, 03 Jul 2014Wow, so the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom is a Big Joke then!It's joke from the start actually:D

not everyone wants to personalize everything aside from wall papers and tones kid...and the numbers even go down with those who want do switch to a different launcher.

seeing your need to root your Android device, overclock the processor, change the system files and bloatware, choose boot logo, boot animation, system partitions, custom recovery, boot apps, etc...

sorry, but i dont share your enthusiasm for things that dont work outside of the box. most of them are superficial anyways - you must be insecure or something...

i use my phone to communicate with people. i dont use it to keep me busy from communicating. dont force your values on us

love,
grandma

If you want a STOCK phone, without being able to customize anything else except a wallpaper, choose WP..
Those tiles really make the phone a grandma-phone, not to mention the silly app list.
Oh, it doesn't even let you have a proper file manager - still a grandma phone.

If you want to customize EVERYTHING, choose Android!
You can root your Android device, overclock the processor, change the system files and bloatware, choose boot logo, boot animation, system partitions, custom recovery, boot apps and a LOT more.

Conclusion: If you are a grandma and you'll use the phone for what it is, choose WM..
