>>>>With WP8, you've got a handful of device manufacturers who all have different drivers for their cameras.
I am sorry but there are only three flagships, the 920, 8X, and Ativ S and three low end devices, 8S, 820, 822. The photosynth team should not be taking more than 3 months to test on these devices.
>>>>It is the most atrocious logical fallacy to assume that because a handful of people, lost amidst the tens of thousands of Microsoft employees worldwide, work at "Microsoft" that somehow that means that because "Microsoft" has billions of dollars in the bank and tens of thousands of employees that somehow all of that cash and talent should be working on getting one small app out that earns the company no money.
And yet they can spend the time and money to release the app on competing platform. If it earns the company no money? Why do it? WP is what earns money and by releasing it on WP, it attracts more people to WP.
