    Their manufacturing costs may be higher, but I doubt Microsoft is going to price it more than those phones. If so, even if everything about them is better than the Samsung/Apple equivalent, I doubt it'll be successful. I love WindowsPhone, but I know it has a lot of catching up to do marketshare wise, selling the flagship at a higher price than it's competitor's flagships is not a good way of doing that.

      I agree with you. I feel like slightly less may be a better move from a business perspective. It still instills quality while providing additional incentive to consider it as an option or view it as competitive.

        Exactly, iOS and Android are the default mobile operating systems for most people. In order to convert them there has to be a good incentive, value for money in my opinion is generally the best incentive.

          Luckily this is only a rumor and hopefully Microsoft is wiser than this. Regardless I'm excited to purchase one, it will be the first flagship phone I've ever owned. I've always purchased phones a year or two after their initial launch and they've usually been mid range so for the time being I'll continue to let myself be excited for future developments regarding this hardware.

            Hope it comes out sooner rather than later so you can enjoy it, Continuum should be pretty awesome.

              I'm really looking forward to it. I heard the Continuum adapter will be expensive, I don't really think that's a wise business decision. That thing should be as cheap as possible to get one in every college student and business professionals backpack or brief case. We'll see how it plays out. I'm still excited.
