Agreed. I see the market in a few years being a duopoly of Windows Phone and Android, unless something else comes out

Wendy its cool to have you here like everyone eles cuz it adds daily interest to what we do here.... BUT you act as if you're an average joe on the streets that has NOO knowledge of whats going on in the phone world and as if you dont know they're are better options out there.......Now if you were that person, it would be cool we wouldnt be able to hold you accountable for your ignorance.....but since you are NOT that person and you are on a PHONE REVIEWING/NEWS WEBSITE everyday, how are you going to continue to say these mindless things??

Got an 8860 back in the day as a TIP WHILE BARTENDING! I s**t you not! Working at a privite yatch club and a member who had it less than a month had his business partner change plans. Dude got frustrated trying to consign it, so he gave it to the bartender at his club. ME!

Still have fond memories of that chrome little slider. Oh well...no 920 for me as I am on vzw.

you pathetic troll...
no innovation from Nokia?
PureView, new super sensitive display which has almost the same features as the resistive ones back in days,cbd, great polycarbon build quality which is unsuccesfully imitated by htc for example, great and still snowballing maps service.
Should I mention that N8 was the first one which had Bluetooth 3.0, usb otg (don't jump on me with old and cranky pda's, I'm talking about phones only), great fm transmitter and so on and so forth. I could do it all day long. For you, troll, the only true "smart" (caugh, caugh)phone is an iphone with retared map service, dull ios and fragile shell.
No, Nokia's days aren't gone. They've just gasped for the second breath and after many failures they're obviously coming back.
Your mental attitude should be gone along with you .

didn't the Lumia 800 once was sold out as well in UK when it was released last year? but didn't turn out to be best seller. I hope the 920 won't turn out to be the next 900.

53. BillyG (Posts: 305; Member since: 24 Sep 2012)


yup, L800 sold out because nokia only made maybe less than 1k of them, that's the only possible explanation...

Great news! If people start adopting lumias then that means more support from App developers for WP8 which will make WP8 Lumias even better in the future. Go WP8 and Nokia!

Oi, homeboy...who's talking about UI here?? Do you think the tiles are all that i know about the 920??
And Darkjedi, my opinion??
Tell me something...do you think people stick to iP5 after 4S because it's beautiful and simple? Or because most don't know how to go Android since it's way complicated for them?? Cause last i checked, even 4S lovers complained about the boring looks of iP5.
Yeah, it's beautiful...but it's a beautiful disaster!

A lot of people really don't know what they are talking about, example my girlfriend want's a new phone (i am getting the 920) she also want's it. On of her friends told her don't buy Nokia it is not good they are way behind with everything........the friend has a iphone 4s.......she told my girlfriend get a iphone because it can call and sms.........i was like WTF all mobile phones can call and sms.

Also i was at a phonehsop with my girl, she was looking for a phone and was talking about the Lumia 920, the sale guy was like buy the Lumia 900, i said no if you want the 920 wait for it and don't buy the 900. The sale guy said but WP is crap and there is no difference between the 900 and 920, i was like excuse me there is a huge difference between those 2. And he kept saying no it is not, so he saw me playing with my phone he said oh i see you have a Lumia 800 is said no and he said yes i see it. i said this not a Lumia 800 i put it next to the 800 and he saw my phone was little bit bigger. I said this is the N9 then his mouth fell open..........priceless.....what a NOOB!

This is one of the many encounters with phone shop sellers who does not know about mobile phones......it is so freaking annoying because they spread the word around that Nokia is crap and WP is crap........it just not true. My ICS device is crap and lags......i will never buy an Android phone again. Lumia 920 here i come.

I live in the Netherlands, i think 99% of the sales people are just students who are working there en just try to sell phones, they know nothing about it. Only the brands and os they kniow. They can't tell the hardware specs.....NOOBS!

Is that a reason why iPhone sells well? I'm 16 and asked a sales person about the processor in the Indian One S, he didn't knew that there were different generations/types of processors. He called a couple of more guys and none of them knew.

It would be okay for sales person not to know about the OS or the hardware specs if it was 5 years back.
But now, we need some one better than us to show us how it is better than what we have in mind. Managers should hire people with mind that understands mobile language....not just the model number and the brand!

im really looking forward for this... but still have my hearts for 808 pureview!!

but i wish nokia will release the last and a beast symbian phone!

4.3" running 1.5ghz dual core processor with LTE and 41MP PureView with OIS!

please let symbian exit with one glorious device even though 808 pureview is amazing already! :)

Make that a Quadcore with adreno 320gpu. And kick windows out.

Cores aren't everything. Processor has to be able to handle the severe load from the image processing. Android doesn't have that capability, and as far as I know only Symbian does

true and agree... core numbers dont matter..but atleast nokia should release a symbian phone with support of new hardware! i wiah dual core at least the s4....and with LTE support too and still pentaband like other symbian...

or even intel's new chip thats inside razr i!! 2GHZ!!!
