Why would anyone want to hate on such a miniscule market share is beyond me. You do seem like you want people to hate though, be careful what you wish for though.

Waiting in line is nothing, people do it every Black Friday. They do it for the latest Jordan sneakers(the man hasn't played ball in over 10 years, smh). They do it for free cheese, they do it to pay bills, get money from the bank. Nothing wrong with waiting in line. Waiting in line for more than a day for things that aren't a necessity, now that is when you have to wonder about the individual.

Willing to wager there will be a number of Windows devotees coming in here to down vote any non Pro Windows stances.

This is so true. Why is waiting in line for a phone this amazing thing now? Cuz its always associated with Apple?

Ppl do it for concert tickets, video games, etc. Ppl wait in line to get into clubs....its actually no big deal when you think about it.

Just some food for thought: how do we know all of those people are there for Windows Phones? The Galaxy Note II did just release on AT&T today, so isn't it possible that some of those people are in line for that device as well? I'm just saying...

I did not mean that statement to sound in any way like I am hating on Windows Phones. I actually like some of the features offered on Windows Phones. My comment was mostly just to point out something that you may not have thought about.

As your profile pic states you are dead inside that brain. Many ppl will stay in line for something that is worth it. Like the lumia 920 if you don't know what that phone is packing inside it has a better camera than any iPhone & galaxy phone also it has the best screen technology you could use it with your gloves, nails a banana you name it it.. But of course us tech geeks don't care about the latest technology right? We just fight over what os is better..

Very suspicious of this, i doubt there's that many people eagerly awaiting WP phones, i expect this to be exposed at a later point by e.g. an ex-employee or an insider.

I've always been interested in Windows Phone, and Windows 8 is even making me want to purchase one so that I can just have a cohesive ecosystem. I would definitely purchase a Lumia model, especially in a bright color just to rebel against all the black, gray/sliver, and white phones that's everywhere.

I'd like to try out a new Mobile OS. Can someone sell me on a Windows Phone? Options are always good! :-)

I Just want to say .. very good for Nokia the best mobile hardware trying to go a head again.. but i think WP7 and WP8 are very plains, simple, basic and less innovative to give the fresh air that Nokia needs...!!

Sorry Nokia...!!

Now that it's finally out, I hope PhoneArena's review of the Lumia 920 comes out, too. And it better not include a sentence about it's 'hefty' weight.

Stopped on the way home from work and played with a Lumia 920. Very disappointed. Camera was good in low light but that's about it. Other than low light pictures the Note 2 totally blew its doors off. MS has a lot of work to do on this OS if they want to seriously compete.

im pretty sure they are all getting Lumia 920!! yeah... lumia 920 might be the answer to nokia's downfall!

coz all the poll that wpcentral are doing, lumia 920 wins a landslide! only 3 out of 10 will get 8X and 1 out of 10 will get ativ S!
