Re: Why Windows Phones? Security and learning curve.
"The impossibility of getting security fixes for mid-range and budget priced Android phones is going to drive those consumers..."
Typically such consumers are blissfully unaware - and even unpatched mainstream smartphone it is unlikely that significant users will experience a hardship at all or directly identifiable as their smartphone unpatched vulnerability being the culprit, to where they will realize they need to go to another smartphone type. In the case of a tech literate consumer of budget or used phones like myself, I choose to use a nexus phone or an used phone running cynaogenmod that, once installed, is super easy to do a monthy update of, with the latest AOSP patches.
