For some reason a 4" screen seems so 2010. Especially when *NEAR* edge-to-edge screens start to catch on more.

If this is the 'new and wonderful' news that was about to pop, it is more of a let-down. A pop, but not the positive kind. More like a balloon being burst.

Nokia is the one that signed that crappy exclusivity deal with AT&T over the 920. As a Verizon customer I'm not going to jump up and leave over one phone. If that was the case I would have been using a AT&T iPhone since 2009. I don't think Android would be this strong if Apple released the iPhone on all carriers in the very beginning. Nokia is repeating the same mistake.

Nokia is going to rue the day they signed an exclusive on the L920.

Yeah, I think the exclusivity deal left a HUGE void at all other carrier. I would like to believe Android could have made it to the top on its own merit, but with the iPhone on every carrier, that would have been extremely difficult.

SGS4 or NOTE3 vs 920 or whatever Nokia will produce

Well, the world knows the answer except for Nokia fanboys

oh really...? how many Wp device samsung sold compared to Nokia lumia Wp7 devices and how many Ativ s compared to Lumia WP8 device ....
world knows the truth "including" Nokia haters.....

SG4 or NOTE 3 VS 920? that means you agree that SG3 and Note 2 are not as good as 920!....

and you r comparing SG4 and NOTE 3 with 920? which is still a rumor

Hey dude
Of course I meant WP S4 AND NOTE3
I don't think WP version of SG3 and Note2 will come out? or maybe it's possible since they are good enough to compete with 920 and whatever Nokia's next phone :P

Why is Verizon selling mid tech Windows smart phones. I think that the only windows smart phones people will be willing to go ion contract for are the Lumia 920 type high
def smart phones. Now if this smart Phones had a 4 inch high def screen with 16 gigs of memory that is expandable to 32 gigs with a micro SD card then I think People might go on contract to buy it but back off buying a mid tech smart phones on contract fpr 2 years

Which is why the carriers are not willing to make volume commitments on WP.

8x a under-rated almost forgotten about phone that people should look at
