Windows Phone Does NOT Need to be Unique

Windows Phone fans are a rabid bunch. Well, perhaps rabid isn’t the right term. A better analogy would be wounded animals that are trapped in a corner. We live in a world of aggression, jealousy, excuses, and sub-2% market share. It’s dark times for us Windows Phone fans.

While just about every Windows Phone owner also owns a Windows PC, there’s a solid chance that they might also have a Mac or that they might be experimenting with Linux.
