    Custom ROMS are only relevant to people who root. Majority of phone users don't care, otherwise there would be a larger group of people not still on Gingerbread.

    They are already planning an update for WP 8 in the first quarter. WP 7 phones will get 7.8 upgrades and the Titan II has been hacked to run WP 8. So no the tablet will not just 8 without updates. Plus with MS having a restricted ecosystem upgrades and updates will be across the board unlike Android that relies on MFR custom upgrades.

    But the advantage is you have options of phones. Not just one product like the iPhone. At the very least if you don't like one Window phone you can look at others.

    Google is too big for Apple to play against.

    Some things to keep in mind, Apple is more concerned about hardware dominance, and Google is just dabbling in this arena. Plus, of course, Apple may be the largest company on the planet, Google is far from its equal. Apple feels a greater threat from Samsung,

    I don't think this is quite it. Apple and Microsoft are distinctly different from Google and Android. Apple and Microsoft envision an ecosystem that covers users from phone to tablet to computer, The advantage Microsoft has is that they own the business / productivity end of the equation, through the software that enables this, and Apple owns the personal communication and social enabling devices through both their hardware and software. Both would like to capitalize on offering alternatives to the strengths of their opponents.
    Google, in general, has made its fortunes on being the absolute best at delivering information, and of course targeting advertising at users through its Unmatched data and information gathering techniques, but understands that a favorable OS, that features its services, is in its best interest. Google is also no ones fool, knowing that both Apple, and Microsoft, could potentially cut them out of the equation. So they compete, in a rather unique, open source way that potentially allows innovation that is difficult for the very structured Apple and Microsoft to plan a defense against. Of course, Google is hedging its bets by delving into the hardware arena as well.
    Its going to be interesting, and I'm all in with Google, maybe just because they are the lesser of three evils.
