He included Windows as well...
So he did. But then that's Windows phones, so only about 6 extra people
Are they really selling that badly?
No signature worth mentioning...
Looking at a slideshow while chilling out listening to iTunes is nice, i find
I could do that without the need of an extra box (that requires you to to buy into a closed system)

Yes, as soon as I bought an iMac, my eyes glazed over in rapture, I started wearing black turtle neck shirts and a Homburg then saved up to travel to Apple store openings where (if I was lucky) I would get a T-Shirt and a 'high-five' from the staff after queueing for 3 days and nights. I changed my job title to include the word 'Visualizer' and bought a snake.
Depends on your definition of badly really. 2 million units in Q1 gives you either:
But yes, admittedly more than 6.
Windows, being a relatively newer platform (competitive enough to challenge iOS & Android) will take time to take off. Windows 8 is generating a lot of buzz currently. It remains to be seen whether this fizzles out or not. I suspect it will be a success.
I can see the importance of Nokia in fuelling Windows' growth. To come up with first generation phones such as the Lumia 800 is a tremendous achievement. It has the best build quality I've seen in a smartphone, & amongst the best aesthetics and screen response.

To the professor in the hat. I am really trying not to be patronising. I am merely putting across the situation as I see it. Sometimes maybe that comes across as patronising, but it's difficult to express what I feel without some of that creepimg in.
I'm not "anti-Apple" any more than I'm anti-(insert large, usually US corporation here). They all have their faults.
I'm going to be buying a new phone myself imminently, and my current shortlist includes the Lumia 800, the Sony Xperia S and the HTC One S (The X is too big, as well as the Galaxy Nexus).
The Windows phone is a potential as I am tempted (as an ex-software developer) to write some software for it, add to that the fact that it is an incredibly smooth experience all wrapped up in my personal favourite looking phone of the moment.
If I were to "only" choose on looks, the iPhone 4 would also be considered, but I don't like the interface (or iTunes) and I find the screen a bit pokey (if extremely HQ). Microsoft would have sold me the Lumia at once if they hadn't lumbered it with the need to use the Zune software /inability to mount as a hdd. The screen is possibly a little small too, but it's incredibly bright and readable.

Fair enough. But I hope you can see that, though Apple products aren't right for you, there are a number of people who buy them and use them and who aren't just brainless morons who'd buy a chocolate teapot if it had an Apple logo on it and could be switched on through iTunes
who aren't just brainless morons who'd buy a chocolate teapot
I've always wanted to eat one of those

Though to be fair, there are a number of people who are.
