Seriously, Nokia failed me with Lumia.
If they only release the first quadcore phone...
I'm seriously mad at them for not yet bringing dualcore! They're no longer in track with specs. I mean, WP7 does not even have 1080p and HD Screens... not even qHD, some even thick phones with no Front Cameras... Really?! Someone give me enlightenment over this.

Everything that you stated that Nokia dont have is due to OS limitation, or put in other words the WP kernel don't support multi-cores (and here are 12Mpx lens, 1080p and so on), HD screens and everything else, But the next major update (Apollo/WP8) will bring all that, so this winter Nokia will put out there dual-core phone/LTE, 1080p and so on ... give them little time ... for 9 months no one can make such phone. For the Lumia 800 Nokia stated that they didn't have time to put FFC ... the decision was to delay the device by 2-3 months or put FFC ...

but by the time apollo is out, quad cores are out too. idk.
I hope Apollo will be a big leap like ICS and iOS5.
I want a Nokia Lumia that has a 12+MP Camera, 1080p, Quad Core and 720p+ Screen! Possibly Clearblack with ST Novathor, carl zeiss etc...
and RAM btw
now that's a flagship.

Well it's said that the new kernel will be like the one used in Win8 so it can run quad-cores and in theory more, but I'm not sure ... there will be more info soon i guess :) Btw the phoe that you describe is what I'm waiting for :D but there is really no need for quad core on WP nor more RAM cuz the OS runs without a hiccup with 254RAM :) but I guess no one will be against 1GB :D

Maybe if they allow for more RAM, then they will be willing to better the multitasking system. Since they want to keep the user experience as smooth as possible, more RAM may be a key.

You don't need quad core phones for Windows Phone. Android needs quad core chips for their phone because the way the OS is set up. Windows phone takes less to run so doesn't require quad cores.

What's the point of having dualcore or quadcore in mobile phone these days ? Are you going to render 3dstudio max scenes there ? Or play ultra-realistic games on the devices which are obviously not suitable for comfortable game controlling ? Oh and btw, GUI in single-core lumia 710/800 is smoother than in dual-core androids. So what's the point ?

boy...listen to yourself. Why do you insist so much on dual or quad core?
Have you played with lumia or other new mango phones?
They are perfectly fluid and android can dream about that smoothness.
You want it because nexus or not announced yet htc phones have it?
Or you focus on real performance?
If you focus on real life performance there is no f**ki%& way you could be dissapointed when it comes to responsiveness or fluid.

"WP can’t handle the large sensor and all of Nokia’s camera implementations."
Sorry, no 12mp for now folks.

no need for dual core, windows cannot handle it yet.
maybe win 8 will be optimised for the higher specs

I don't think WP7 needs to have quad-core. Runs very smooth already. Phones like Galaxy S2 need dual/quad core processors because the operating uses so many recources. Have hope my friend...I know WP7 is a bit late in the game but I think they will continue to grow and innovate. Lets hope :/

I think for now dual-core is OK (i mean with Apollo) cuz everybody makes games for iOS and for Android and now the really good games runs best on dual-cores :) so i guess for 2012/2013 dual-core will do fine, but with the next major update (2013) there will be quad for sure, we all know by now that in the states big % of the people wants to buy power ... so numbers sell i guess :)

folks there is a web report that states that Microsoft tests showed that Windows phone 7
does not need dual core CPU chips to work fast on smart phones. Various Pro testers have stated that it indeed does work fast and well on single core 1GHZ CPU's that are used on smartphones . This is good for OEMs because they can spend less money to make a Windows smart phone. using dual cores in Windows phone 7.5 would be overkill but Windows phones will probably get them in the 2012 Windows 8 smart phones probably because of processing skipe video calls. as for the Nokia 900 I hope it has a front facing camera for skipe which is coming to windows smartphones

I can tell that by the time 2013 comes around its going to be a tough decision between Android, IOS, and WP.
Nokia/WP looks like its on track to catch up to the market by the end of 2012. When everyone that upgraded this holiday season in 2011 are eligible to upgrade again in 2013 WP might be very tempting.

I remember when everybody were swearing that pc windows so slow and resources hungry. Now when mobile windows does not need anymore so much power as his pc sibling (or closer...android or others)...it's bad anyway...COME ON!!!!
