The Finns, the finns, the finns.... And Murtazin didn't say anything negative about those prototypes? That was not Murtazin - at least not in his normal state of mind.

P.S. AF and Qualcomm chips aren't nearly enough to bring Nokia back to the top of the smartphone heap. I'm very sceptical right now.

I would hope that Nokia will adopt Android as an operating system and not just W7! I like Nokia phones but at the same time I like Android too! Hence thats why I have the Motorola Milestone 2 and not a Nokia!

So, I will be the one to ask, "Are those front-facing cameras or proximity sensors?"

i'm really waiting for Nokia's Windows8 Based tablets supporting a wide variety of features including intel's i7 quadcore processor which I heard that it can support 3+ghz and Invidia's graphic performance (they're the best), Also I hope Nokia would also release Meego based smartphones or tablets real soon....

If Nokia goes Android, and comes up with a better spec'd E7 type device with an autofocus camera of 8MP or higher, and microSD expansion, I'm in. Otherwise, I'm done with Nokia since WP is not the kind of OS I'm looking for.

A portrait QWERTY candy bar is going to be interesting considering that WP was not designed at all to be used in landscape, save for the browser (which needs work in landscape) and writing an email and text message. So unless they make the entire UI work in both portrait and landscape, we have to suspect that it's going to be designed like the Droid Pro.

Nokia should tie up with android. Else they will be outdated in near future, because i don't see people using windows phone everywhere. Everyone prefers to be android these days

Why even bother! Microsoft means something when it comes to software - you just cant beat capitalism and years of expertise. This might be some kind of assurance that we will have software part of phone supported and maintained. Nokia is great phone maker and i like their decission about not using some proprietary open source operating system for their phones but rather have some control over their software or in this case some solid company like microsoft.And hey come on! If you are developing application for windows or better for Silverlight Web then you can use the very same tool for Windows Phone 7 so its great for developers too.... Good Luck! and i am waiting for WP7 Nokia to give you my hard earned money!!! :-)
