    So we all know that the 46/50 top apps promised by Joe B at launch of wp8 are non-existent. So what's going on with that? Did they just decide against it? I mean the major one was Pandora, and it is yet to be seen on wp8... Sure I prefer last.fm, but the average consumer doesn't care about that, they care about the name. Aka iPhone's success

    The top 50 list probably changed, so now MS has to pursue the new random stupid Instagram-like app.

    The SDK came out about the same exact time as the phones and OS. As a developer, making any sort of quality app takes a lot of time and effort. So, they're probably in progress, just not ready for primetime. The OS, and therefore the SDK, have only been out a couple of months. Be patient, they're probably almost finished.

    That was only the case for casual developers. The big developers (like Rovio) had it ages in advance.

    Given some of the 1st party apps didn't get updated to windows phone 8 yet, 3rd party apps might take longer....

    i know some of the apps made it from that list (draw something, words with friends, angry.... wait, was angry bird on the list?)
    some are slowly popping up over the last week or so, i think in a month we should see a good chunk of them pop up

    didn't they say q1 for Pandora? We are still in q1?

    The four remaining after are Instagram, pinterest, wells fargo, and one more. Who knows when we will get those.

    Microsoft better deliver on this one, or everyone will abandon the platform for good.

    Microsoft can only do so much... the devs for those apps have to do the rest.

    I like my Lumia 920 and WP platform...but can't help being impatient
    MS has failed so far to deliver but hope they r trying hard...they have missed to strike initially but really hope they make a comeback
    People like the eye-catching design of both the hardware and the UI but nothing beyond that...even a 2 year old iPhone or Android device kills WP8 by the sheer plethora of apps they have
    I do understand that its gonna be slow for apps to be developed...then why the f**k didn't MS release SDK earlier for app developers to start working..
    Why come up with app developer challanges now why not earlier??
    Questions will be asked and the best way to answer them is by releasing some ******* apps in MWC...in MWC 2013 not 2014...just wanted to clarify for folks at MS if they have other ideas..

    All Gameloft games are coming for Holidays 2012, according to Terry Myerson, the corporate vice president of the Windows Phone Division, who for some reason is not yet fired for ****ty execution over and over again.

    Meet Windows Phone 8

    We were also supposed to have not only Gameloft games but also games from other studios for the same launch window, did not happen.

    Welcome to Windows Phone!

    Microsoft isn't anyone's girlfriend that it has to keep promises. Be thankful it isn't as ruthless as other businesses in the same industry charging you $900 for ****.
