    Lumia 900 with pureview and WP8 (expandable storage and increased resolution) and they've got a buyer.

    MAKE IT SO!

    Assuming I can sell my GS3 to make up the purchase cost :)

    Definitely not, the 900 was just short of 500 on release.

    *sighs*

    ... the days of genuinely being surprised by new phones and gadgets are well and truly over.

    The new iPhone casing and parts were shown (and spread) around the web back in May for heavens sake!

    I love Nokia and their amazingly stylist phones ... but Android is what I prefer to use.

    I'll be using one of the new Nokia handsets come launch day. Mrs Hermit is due an upgrade from Three, so as soon they're available I'll be getting my order in. My own contract is up this time next year, just in time for the next wave of handsets. Anybody would think I deliberately staggered them just so my phone is never more than a year old :D

    The Ativ S looks way better than the Galaxy S3

    Ativ S or Nokia 920 may be my new phone. Was going to get an S3 but I really love the windows UI.

    I'm pretty annoyed that Nokia phones get exclusive on popular 3rd party apps like PayPal or ESPN. Makes it tough to pick a Samsung or HTC even if they end up making better hardware. I wish Microsoft would sort out this mess.

    It's nothing to do with MS, it's to do with the brands getting exclusivity deals.

    But to be frank, my nokia 900 kicks the living shit out of the two samsung galaxy 1 and 2 phones I've had in the past, so I'm not seeing a problem. They sure as hell weren't better hardware in even the slightest way.

    It is up to Microsoft to prevent this from happening, especially with popular apps. An exclusive on PayPal, come on, that's silly. I know people love to put the blame on Samsung and HTC but what would you make of an ecosystem where PayPal is only on Nokias, Instagram only on HTCs, Flipboard only on Samsungs, BBC iPlayer only on LG, etc? Not to mention all devices are not available on all networks (particularly problematic in the US).
    It's up to Microsoft to say: we're here to make the OS as a whole succeed, not this OEM or that one. Confusion can only help potential customers go for another OS.

    And by the way I do own a Lumia 900, had the 800 before it, so I'm not talking out of spite.

    This goes beyond branding, branding doesn't prevent you from getting a CNN app on your phone. I'm totally fine with Nokia producing exclusive great 1st party apps like Nokia Drive or Nokia Music. My issue is when Nokia gets exclusives on 3rd party basic apps like CNN, ESPN, Paypal, Groupon, etc. It's the same ecosystem, it's like having Xbox 360 games that would only work on the Slim models.

    My m-i-l has the lumia 800 and its a really nice phone.

    Hats off to MS, though, for making the zune software a bigger piece of shit than iTunes.

    I went from android to the Lumia 800. It is not without some flaws but I fucking love it. It's just so damned pretty as well.

    Can't wait! Hope 920 is impressive. Probably going to get one.

    A friend has a 710 and it's excellent in case anyone wondered what the budget end Nokia WPs are like. However the 610 is apparently rather underpowered, no idea if they're going to beef up the 620.

    The 610 is supposed to be underpowered, it's so it could be sold as a cheap sub 100 phone. Unfortunately they totally messed up the pricing. At 50 quid on PAYG it would have been perfect.

    I have that feeling that Samsung and/or HTC will outdo Nokia on hardware but all the exclusive Nokia software will make people feel like they have to get a Lumia. Not sure if it's a good or bad thing although I'm enclined to think a good thing it is not.

    The nokia maps app is great, and I do love the aesthetics of the Lumia range over boring old rectangle Samsung.

    An thoroughly sick of my iPhone though. Time for change!
