For me the show stopper in Windows Phone is that you cannot push the 
application logic to C++ and integrate 3rd party C and C++ libraries.

The cross platform thing is two ways.  You can target cross platform, 
but you can also develop cross platform.  For instance, when developing 
a symbian application I start on Linux with Qt Creator, testing with 
simulator.  When ready to test on device, I recompile the same project 
on Windows using Qt Creator there and deploy and debug on device.
