I do fear for the future of Windows Phones produced by Microsoft.
Previously, Nokia pumped out a range of consumer oriented smartphones, as well as quite a lot of accompanying accessories...
The challenge with phones is squeezing a large amount of technology into a tiny space - one that is made even tinier when you consider how much room has to be given over to...
So did the prospect of official Nest apps for Windows Phone and Windows 8 just drop somewhat?
Could Microsoft port the WinRT foundation to Windows 7 and allow windowed 'Metro' apps to run? This would significantly and rapidly expand the market for those apps.
Here in the UK, certain Surface accessories are either sold out, or haven't even been released (or even listed!) in the first place!
I hope things improve in the new year!
