(What the heck is iCloud integration doing there?!)
That's interesting! I winner why Microsoft is allowing for iCloud integration. It'd beinteresting to see Apple open up like that though.

I can imagine what would happen if suddenly there's an iTunes app for Windows phones.

This has to be the oddest piece of news I've heard coming yet. Android apps on Windows without doing much else?

They're trying to increase the available apps and hopefully get people to convert... I'm not sure how successful they'll be. :/

Hmm, that seems a little intriguing.. hopefully though Microsoft doesn't decide to build off of Android because they've done just as fine with Windows Phone OS, IMO.

Yes but the app store is severely lacking and that's what's killing them with market penetration.

Not having actually gone for a full Comp. Sci. degree myself, I have no idea what you are referring to.

It's used to describe syntax of programming languages. I mean, if now nobody knows what I'm talking about, then the question I'll ask will probably be gibberish to y'all anyways.

Kind of a chicken-and-egg problem they've got there, to be honest.

It'll probably employ some sort of emulation in the vein of what WINE does for Macs and Linux distros. I think Microsoft will be fine.

Not fluent in it at all.

Sometimes if there's too technical of a topic, it might get overlooked. It happens every now and then, unfortunately.

Does Microsoft have an SDK of sorts for developers or developer fees to upload apps? Honestly, I don't see why people aren't developing for Windows Phone OS.. it's just as powerful as iOS and Android, even though it may not be as popular as the former two.

Honestly I think it's just that Apple and Android are too dominant in the handheld department at the moment for Windows to break through.

You know, I'd probably hate having to choose between either of these. I prefer the balanced compromise with Windows Phone, to be honest.

I really wish more people developed for Windows Phone, like really. One (official) app I'd like to see on the Windows Phone app store is Dropbox.. all I've seen so far for Dropbox is just a bunch of knock-off apps that aren't official.

The fun part about mobile market share is that it's not that clear cut. Sometimes, the second place holder isn't iOS, but... Windows.

Well that is rather ironic, and actually kind of weird...

Well you never know, sometimes Windows just kinda gets through, not sure how, but it just does.

I believe I never mentioned that I think this is wrong

Either way, what I'm saying is that when it comes to market share, one should take into account other regions.

I do also know some countries where BlackBerry still has a strong hold

So basically, you're saying there are some smaller countries where they have a stronger footing... yes. But overall marketshare is what we're discussing. XD

I remember when BlackBerries were a thing! I find that when they first came out, almost everyone had one, but they're dying off now that there's more powerful phones and a much wider variety of phones that can do what BlackBerries do.

I remember when my parents walked into a Verizon Wireless store back in either 2005 or 2006 and I saw a Blackberry phone, and I was intrigued by it. Of course though I was out of my mind at the time (being 10 or 11 years old) thinking I could have one xD but it was definitely in the time before smartphones became the thing to own..
