Oh Nokia. Toldchya Microsoft would stab you in the back. Like they do with all their partners. bit.ly/VpdOBW— Clinton Jeff (@clintonjeff) October 2, 2012
CJ followed up with this tweet:
Microsoft must be smoking something if they think they can do better than Nokia. Noone even knew what Windows Phone was before Lumia.— Clinton Jeff (@clintonjeff) October 2, 2012
After reading the WPCentral article that CJ referenced, I asked if we could do a special Google Plus Hangout to talk about the rumor that Microsoft would be possibly releasing their own Windows Phone.
Clinton Jeff and Alvin Wong, both of Unleash the Phones, and I convened on a G+ Hangout within 15 minutes to discuss the news and repercussions and the above video is a recording of our hangout.
Rumor sources with supposed inside knowledge:
WPCentral : Is Microsoft making its own Windows Phone in 2013? We discuss the options.
Boy Genius Report : With Windows Phone still failing to gain traction, Microsoft plans to launch its own smartphone
