I wouldn't want Windows Phone OS taking already limited space. If this gets released I give it an hour after release before someone deletes the Windows portion.

next step will be to dual boot on iOS???

the issue of WPhone is... the whole OS... can't do a thing to correct it.

on other hand it is good for HTC if M$ give some money for it as this company have some few financial trouble.

let see

Very true. They are financially screwed.

A generous offer from Microsoft should help.
