For maps and camera, YES! but the rest should still be microsoft. If Nokia wanna change, change the map tiles and camera tiles only knowing Nokia has one of the best GPS navigation and photography out there. Hong Kong people has a high preference for Apple because of its user-friendliness as well as the good visual effect. That's the sole reason why nokia fail in Hong Kong. Seeing WP 7, things will definitely get better as long as they maintain the presentation of the OS and tweak a few only, like the maps and where Nokia see fits. The messaging department and internet department, please leave it alone. The phone design is also sexy.
What I hope from Nokia WP7:
1. Dual core 1.2-1.4 Ghz processor!!
2. Adreno 205/Power VGX and above graphic processor!
3. 8-12MP Carl Zeiss Optics with Xenon Flash
4. 4" - 4.3" CBD AMOLED display.
5. Gorilla Glass front and Aluminium back
5. Long lasting battery!
6. Thin, hopefully not exceeding 10.0mm.
7. Window Phone 7 OS

For me: fast, lag-free OS with customization options. Maps, camera with flash, less or max 4" screen and the design above is truly awesome!
Regarding the visual effects, WP7 looks good, however, I would love to see the option to remove or at least shorten the transition time. If I would like to text immediately, I don't want to see the eye-candy. Good lock for Nokia!

E7's slide out QWERTY, N8's camera, 4" WVGA display, all the features and functionality of Symbian, big battery, HDMI, a music player with a fully customizable equalizer, an applications menu that can be shown in icon grid formation, and a completely redesigned Android like set of homescreens.
I would like it to beat Watson the super computer on Jeopardy.
N8's camera in 10.0mm thin phone is impossible at todays tecnology.
I agree with Crucial, although I'd prefer quad-core and a carrier-subsidized price tag for the US Market, no gorilla glass (how many thousands of iphones have you heard of that get shattered screens?), and for them to be limited to GSM carriers. Nokia pioneered GSM, their dabbling in CDMA is just wierd.

Sounds good. I guess one advantage, of the many disadvantages to being late in the game, is to learn from the early goers mistakes.
the display resolution should be AT LEAST 480x854. wp7 suits nokia
Nokia to modify Windows Phone in and out, but just enough to avoid Android-style fragmentation
