Oh my GOD. lol I was going to buy the Lumia 900 because I thought they totally forgot about this phone. Now I have to wait even longer! Hopefully it's released soon.

I just don't like the GUI on windows phones. I would be interested in trying one if they changed it up now that they are getting LTE. Finally.

i would never be buying any Windows phone but if i really have to buy any, then i'll buy NOKIA LUMIA 800, it is the real windows phone with rich hardware and high ppi, no to lumia 900 bcoz of low ppi

if you are so concerned about screen (ppi and all)..then even lumia 800 actually sucks, it has PENTILE MATRIX, horrible for reading texts, TFT is better than that, LUMIA 710 is more soothing to eyes.....

I am very impressed by the Windows Phone OS, i am on Verizon and they are my only option unless you consider US Cellular a real option due to where i live. I live about 30 minutes from a 4G market and work in that city so i am patiently waiting for a 4G device with them. At this time, i am torn between going with another Android, more than likely the S3, or hoping and waiting for a 4G LTE high end Windows Phone. Sad thing is, i haven't heard of any in the plans for Verizon, has anyone heard, or seen anything that says 2012 will bring me my wish?

Fortunately or Unfortunately (depending on how you see it), Verizon has said that they will NOT be releasing Windows Phones unless they have LTE. LTE Windows Phones are JUST starting to pop, but Windows Phone 8 is coming late this year. My guesstimate is that Verizon will finally bring another Windows Phone when Windows Phone 8 is released. That should be (if past years are any indication of WP releases) between August-October of this year.

Samsung Focus S is already the Windows Phone version of Samsung Galaxy S II....
It is rumoured that Samsung "Mendel" would be a LTE phone wirh a 4.5" Super Amoled Plus screen.

I don't know if the listed length and width on the device in that picture is the actual length and width of the device or if it's just the part where the radio chipsets are and that's it. If it's the device length and width itself, then it looks to be actually a little slimmer than the Samsung Focus S. However, if it's just the part that has the radios, then it could be larger.

As a Verizon customer who wants a Windows smart phone other than the one they have maybe Verizon will get a CDMA LTE Nokia 900 LTE with Windows 8 with dual core CPU a Hi def screen, NFC that would be sweet Oh well a guy can dream about it at least

I'm not too sure this is a very high end device....It's really small, no way they can fit a 4"5 on to it (or can they?). Back to the Lumia 900 with their impending release date.
