“That’s not the only big thing Windows Phone has planned.”
Nokia Lumia 900?

I, personally, want Nokia to do the same with what Motorola has done: Bringing back old revolutionary phones with new revolutionary specs with epic naming schemes.
Droid + Razr = win.

If it was the n95 or the Communicator, well, I don't know but it should at least pack Windows Phone OS, 13MP Camera Carl Zeiss, a quad core for a change, their slide out form factor signature, and the like. and what happened to Nokia Morph btw???

I would love to see that! I find it pretty stupid that Nokia doesn't put it's excellent hardware from Symbian in it's new WP7 devices.
Stuff like a display with 1000 Nits of Brightness, 12MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, loudest speaker in a smartphone!

Would it be wrong to hope for a hint from Microsoft as to when the CDMA carriers - Sprint and Verizon- get in on the act? Since this event is hosting the three AT&T options, odds are probably not. AT&T has been the biggest supporter of WP since it's launch, and really desearves this event all to itself. Geez, I just paid the Evil Empire a compliment. Hope THAT doesn't become a habit.

Still, the only hope the CDMA's have for a next gen WP device is the LG phone that made it through the FCC recently. Haven't heard a peep about it since. Be nice for an update soon if not November 7th.

And some Nokia 900 gossip would be nice, like bobfreking55 suggested.....

Microsoft, please stop favoring AT&T and T-Mobile so much and give us good WP7 phones. the only reasn they have sold the best with them is because of 3 reasons : 1) They have the best WP7 phones that are the most worthwhile of buying 2) They got them several months before spritn and verizon 3) The sprint and verizon ones suck, and that's putting it nicely.

If you wantg to be serious with competing against android and apple, you have to stop playing favorites.

@down - I think you nailed it. MS doesn't seem to be serious with WP7. Single core CPU? Display resolution of 480x800? One (maybe) CDMA handset? WTF!? MS is looking like RIM more and more....

Well this may be a dumb question....I've been searching all the sites , but cant find concrete answers.......
Does beats audio signify , ur only getting beats headphones with HTC phones, or will the speakers for HTC phones actually be Beats audio units as well ??????

cuz we all know htc speaker phone and audio is sub par, but i like all the new phones they (amaze, sensation xe) , but if beats deal only means ull only get earbuds, and no internal speakers , im prob gonna pass.....i would love to blast pandora or my music out off some kick ass speaker

I think its not a great time to buy a WP7 and better wait for 8 since WP7 would be obsolete the moment WP8 is released sometime next mid year.
