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

This really is a lame move from M$. HTC are a sinking ship and they will do whatever if someone gives them any money. But do M$ really think they will gain anything by this? About time they get rid of Ballmer and his companions. They need new blood, new ideas.

Very true. They are financially screwed.

A generous offer from Microsoft should help.
