As others on the list, I'm ditching my hugely disappointing iPhone 5 for the Lumia 920. Fortunately, it comes with Nokia Maps, so all is not lost. I will miss Waze though, it's my favorite iOS app... and is vastly better than anything else on the platform.
Well, the maturity of iOS can be judged with different criteria. Concerning MDM and data protection, iOS maintains its advantage of 1-2 years ahead of Android and Windows Phone 8 with constant improvements in these areas.
However, we might switch to Windows Phone 8 if the advantages in office- and sharepoint integration measure up with the disadvantages of a more difficult deployment on Windows Phone 8. That's a fleet of appx. 350 devices, 18 of which have Waze installed (counted by our MDM).
Losing Waze would be bad, but it's not our top priority when it comes to platform selection.
