It's still too early for official sales figures, but it seems Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T just might have something of a hit on their hands with the Lumia 900 smartphone. A check at press time of Amazon's bestseller list for cellphones with service plans showed two versions of the Lumia 900 -- cyan and black -- ranked as the top-selling devices. "We're encouraged that the Lumia 900 is topping Amazon's cellphone best sellers list," Greg Sullivan, senior product manager at Microsoft, told the E-Commerce Times.

Microsoft won't allow their phone OS onto Tablets. Their strategy was announced that Windows 8 is being developed to run well on tablets and to be touch-friendly. The strategy is to leapfrog Apple with having same functionality as PCs and laptops. The unifying factor is the Metro interface and the Applications. Windows 8 apps will run on tablets, ultrabooks, notebooks, netbooks and desktop PCs. The phone OS and apps are a different animal and made only for the Windows phone environment, however they will share the metro look and feel. I expect this strategy to take off in ways that few expect or can predict, similarly to the way the original iPhone took off when cooler and better apps became available.
