    Are the bloggers on NPU optimistic about Win 10 mobile?
    I love win10 but MS isn’t developing any 2gig ram phones which I am dying to buy. The 650 deserved 2gigs and a 4xx processor at 16K. The OEM scenario doesn’t look good at least in India.

      Subham, we are optimistic because we believe Microsoft is in for a long play. But in terms of devices they have to really step up the game.
