  • Unless you are CDMA or 4G

    Major launch mistake by MS.

    Let's hope it doesn't doom them.

    Can the folks who instantly have negative things to say without even havent seen any of the demos start their post with the phrase "I hate M$" so that folks like me who come to ZdNet to read some unbiased news know which posts to avoid due to them being unreasonable rants?

      @DontBeEvil You may want to read articles rather than get it from TalkBack which is "for showing extreme bias", blowing off your steam, and for general amusement or consternation of readers depending on their POV.
