If Focus 2 can't win Lumia 900, then it will be a tragedy since Focus 2 is a WP8 but 900 is WP7.5

But Nokia WP8 should be better than this Focus 2 (because of added pureview feature)

As sexy as SGS3? The SGS3 must be one of the least sexy also-rans in terms of design ever. Even Samsung with their tradition of bland, unidentifiable design should be ashamed of that piece of cheap plastic.

If Samsung wants to be serious on Windows Phone, where specs is less important than for droids, they need to produce something that looks a bit more appealing, imo.

Exactly if samsung want to compete in Windows that have to beat Nokia in desighn and build quality because specs besides screen is not that important. after all windows will run off of 256MB of ram on a single core. so if they bring that cheap feel and plastic material then nokia will beat them every time. if they buld a lumia tablet with the same desighn and material as the 900 man o man they would own the tablet market.

if samsung is making a windows8 phone that powerful and with such a large screen, does that mean it will be able to have desktop compatibility? That would be awesome.

I hope they don't use that ugly Galaxy 3 design with Windows Phone 8. Better they redesign it.

yeah, i was thinking nokia is doomed - until I remembered. we haven't seen what Nokia can do without hardware limitations and they have been working on that 41MP sensor in secret... i think Nokia's gonna wow me with their Prodigy Handset.

Nokia is nowhere near doomed. Samsung is coming in to wow with hardware specs like they do with Android. But on android it has a purpose. Unless they add desktop compatibility of some sort, exactly what would you do with a quadcore windows phone? Nokia has a near permanent upperhand with their partnership with MS.
If nokia was smart, they would pair an exynos 5250, OMAP5, or S4 Pro with that 41mp sensor and some other things to really wow us out.

and don't forget Nokia promised the Rich Recording Technology will be coming to their new handsets... =D

that means Windows Phone 8 + PureView + Rich Recording = REAL INNOVATION...

Samsung is doomed... xD

No Matter what i still see nokia leading the WP 8 Line up because they are the only OEM partner to be able to modify the OS. and Pureview is going to be one of its abilities. android really has to ramp up their maximum camera MP, 12MP really isnt enough

How many times will people have to hear this to get the picture. Megapixels don't count unless you want a billboard!

yea right... nokia has better quality pics because of their good camera sensors + the OS itself is good at processing such images...
