The bad news is that it's yet another niche OS that will be on life support right off the bat...

I'm sure there are plenty of Commodore 64, Amiga and Atari 8-bit/ST/STe/TT/Falcon enthusiasts who'll claim the same thing--but no sane person in this decade would buy one to run their business on it or as their primary system even for home. Rapidly, Maemo is headed that way and Blackberry and Palm will surely follow at this rate. Considering Windows mobile operating system is STILL slipping behind in market share even AFTER the Lumia 900 release, it doesn't look to be long for this world either.

Here's some recent and INTERNATIONAL perspective, for the people that keep claiming it's all the Americans' fault:

Depends how you define "yet". As in not yet dead, when sitting on the ocean floor with your feet firmly in a bucket of hard concrete. I guess MacGyver would find a way, but that doesn't really count.

Despite the usual childish sarcasm, ranting, naysaying, moaning and dead-horse-beating, Microsoft is not going to just give up on Windows Phone without a fight. I just attended a small event where a rep talked about a 3 to 4 year push. They're in this for the long haul. I would not count them out or write them off, even if I was the most ardent enemy of the company and/or any of its products.

Some people let emotion get far too ahead of reason.

Well, how should I define it... Nokia already declared Maemo/Harmattan dead. RIM didn't.

You do know that saying "they're in this for the long haul" is beating the dead horse too. Anyway it depends who you are talking about Nokia or MS, MS may not give up without a fight but Nokia doesn't have 4 years and MS's fight is so far fruitless regardless of what their rep told you.

Just because they've been irrelevant the past decade doesn't mean they've been counted out. All we're saying is that they've continued to remain irrelevant--more and more irrelevant as time moves on. Much like their tablet efforts, phone efforts, zune efforts, it'll continue to just linger on, continuing the perpetual fail machine.
