maybe 920, lumia 820 is too overpriced with mid range hardware.....

Difficult to make a big impact if earlier Lumiia with mango/tango was any indication and whatever market Nokia has remaining will be wiped clean by direct entry of M$ with their own phone as M$ can offer any discounts to grab an order in corporate segment.

$840 is too high for a company trying to make a comeback.

it wont be that high in the us, its just that the dollar is wery weak right now and the exchange rate havnt really updated in the last 10 years or so..
the price usally follow the american market. for example this device will probably go for 648USD, and 649EUR, and in my case 6490SEK (im swedish).
if the world was fair it would be like 648USD = 500EUR = 4,337SEK
if they would follow the swedish market the pricing would be like this,
6490SEK = 710EUR = 919USD.
so congrats to all americans you rule the world.. well maybe not, but atleast you get your phones for a decent price ;)

and no SD card slot, better resolution or more storage? Which do you prefer, is your choice?

currently owning a lumia 800 and 16gb is enough for me

I said the screen is better, design is subjective, beats well you know it s**ks and battery life on HTC is horrible. It doesn't have Nokia's exclusive apps, Nokia support, Super Sensitive screen, etc.

Nokia and Sony love there midrange hardware on a highend phone.

How can you say Sony??
Sony delivers the best smartphones at competitive price..
But..Nokia has really overpriced their next gen Lumia devices..

Please note, the sales tax in Germany is 19%, so the Lumia 920 is €545 ($700) + tax, while the 820 is €380 ($500) + tax @ Media Markt (Germany's Best Buy).
Still, the 920 must not be more expensive than the S3 if they want it to be successful.
On that note, the lowest price I could find is €500 ($650) + tax for the 920, while the 32GB S3 goes for €470 ($610) + tax (geizhals.eu). Close enough for a pre-order price.
What matters is operator pricing, though...
