Microsoft Store grand opening in Connecticut has a slightly huge line of people waiting
Farmington, Connecticut is the location of Microsoft’s newest retail store. The community, which lies well east of Hartford, is home to the large and well-appointed Westfarms Mall.

There are not that many Microsoft retail locations out there, which is unfortunate because they are pretty neat experiences and of course they are full of lots of different gadgets from lots of different manufacturers.

In Farmington, the grand-opening was the event of the day and the lines of people were massive. If you happen to live near Farmington, do not expect the crowds to wane this weekend. Instead, maybe make the trip a little later, or during the week.  As for why Microsoft may have picked that location for its latest retail endeavor, that part of New England is fairly affluent and the Interstate-84 corridor in that area makes it easy to get to from upstate New York as well as parts of Massachusetts.  We are sure that some of you wished for a location a bit closer to your home though.

If any of you happened to be there, tell us how long you waited in line.

Seriously, I have the 1520, and it's smartphone heaven.. But, the build, and finish, of the Icon is unmatched by any other Lumia to date.. Now, that's a awesome smartphone!

An Icon would be my next phone, but ATT xD. I guess I'll just wait for the illusive 1820

An upgrade to my 920 would be absolutely amazing. I would rather have the 5-6 inch display though.

I regret not getting mine in cyan. Although black matte isn't bad at all.

I'm typing this on the icon and let me tell you the phone is no where near what people expect. This is my first WP and it SUCKS!!! I can't wait to give it back and turn on my G2. The camera sucks. Where do people get that Lumias have a good camera. I don't care how many megapixel's you have if the shutter lag is more than 2 seconds forget it. Its impossible to take pictures with this thing. Out of the 42 apps I use I found 29 the others were clones. Some of the apps oh man.....looks like the creator was given 10 minutes to create them. Their horrible. I don't know how people can say that WP is good, I'm sorry its not. And what's up with some web pages looking like WebPages from 5 years ago. Android I'm coming back.

Spoke like a true fanboy. Its ok at least i open my mind in trying something new, it was awful but hey at least i gave it a try. Tell me the apps don't look like crap, are you really going to say that the shutter lag isnt there. Go get an Icon and see for your self. For a product that claims to have the best camera they sure messed up in fixing that. Even iPhones have that figured out.

There's this thing called burst mode, you should give it a go if you wanna take pics that fast.

He doesn't have a Icon.. He's a troll... You haven't seen this guys comments?.. Why would he ever buy a WP device?

Oh and whats up with the volume control? LOL!!! They cant even fix that. I have to constantly put it down to dial a number then put it up again then put it down. Simple things like that is why i cant use this phone. I see now that WP people are true fans for them to stay with WP even though its horrible. NO OPTIONS!!

its ok fanboy keep lying to your self, Why don't you answer my questions? You know the apps are sh1t and the camera is horrible. The web browsing is worst than on a cheap android.

Bought to try it, and to see if WP might be something worth keeping but i can only say thank god for 14 day return policy.

How are you going to get yourself out of this one?...By returning the phone.

You're questions are dumb, and you're making a fool of yourself.. Think about it.. Do you really think that I'm gonna agree with you that WP is bad?.. Really?.. Everything you mentioned is false!.. Not even in any online review do they mention those things.. LMFAO!! .. You want me to say WP is bad?... Lol!... Prod fan here Forest.. A real WP user,, unlike you who has probably never touched a WP device.. Keep trying..

Yea, pretty much don't believe you. My friend just came from a note 2 and has an icon now because it was his 4th note two, this time it refused to charge the other 3 were due to software errors that a master reset couldn't fix.

Camera to camera the icon has won if not been on par with anything other than the 1020.

The browser? Ummm even on my 925 the browser looks just like it does on the web. I could pull up screenshots to prove you wrong, but we all know you are a troll.

And the apps you use? Lets hear them. Which apps that you used so much on android yet think the dev had 10mins on win phone. The apps please?

My Lumia 1020 camera bears just about any camera on phones. You are correct it takes a little longer to snap photo, however if you know how to match your WB, ISO and Shutter Speed, my Lumia 1020 blows all others away, I have snapped some unbelievable action shots that my note 2 or iPhone 5 can't do.

Now as for apps I will agree with you. I fly a lot and the Delta WP apps has the information but no electronic boarding pass. I do have a iPhone 5 as a personal phone so apps I really want are on there. Android has its faults as well. I have a Note 2, that I need to do part of my job because the app isn't available on WP and will not be made.

At the end of the day it's all about preference. I can tell you this Nokia smokes any android and iPhone when it comes to signal strength.
