Which mobile operating system(s) do you see yourself using in 2013?

For me it's going to be Android on the Nexus 7 and a Nexus 4 which is currently in the hands of DHL and hopefully makes it here by Monday.

Android from top to bottom, haven't ever used anything before that is this customizable. Custom ROMS and tweaking is great fun :D

Grabbing another Lumia once my contract expires, been working great for my phone. As far as tablets go, I'm pretty much done with Android; bring on the Surface Pro.

WP7.8 for my phone

JellyBean for my tablet

Would hate Android for an every day phone OS though, fun to play with but about as stable as Manson on crack

Android on both, but that's because I'm in a 2 year contract on my phone, and I liked the SGNote 10.1

I've had my TF101 for about a year and a half and I have only just found a ROM that doesn't reboot on its own, or freeze and crash when it is in sleep mode

Literally just found a stable ROM and the devs at XDA had to make it, ASUS failed from Jan 2012 when they went ICS and the entire year their updates did nothing but make things worse

Maybe just a bad experience but as they say, once bitten...

Windows Phone 7.x. I'm happy enough with it not to bother upgrading to a Windows Phone 8 device at the moment.
