can't wait for my new 920!! yellow please! oh and apple sux. same 3 year old design. specs or not, when i look at old design, nothing else further will impress me! you have to pull me in visually before i get inside!!!! kinda of like a boring car design, who cares if it has the best leather and sweet stereo system! windows would be the latest ferrari, android every little asian gas sipper, and apple would be a box of shizit.

I used Android on 4 devices (one a tablet), then switched to Windows Phone.

I haven't looked back.

Not saying Android is bad, just not MY preference.

Its about time the carrier's carried there weight for Windows Phone going forward!! I am really excited about this because I feel alot of people fail to see the benefits that come with a leveled playing field of competition!! I really see the market share of Windows phone going through the roof March 2013!! March 2013 is when Nokia will reveal a Pureview Camera phone that will shut up its rivals!!

-box- that one will have a bigger sensor and maybe a bigger screen and 64 GB of internal storage, micro SD support, 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon S4 pro 1,7 GHZ ( only rumors), if a phone like this is going to be unveiled would be the end of the Galaxy S3.

I am a Windows 8 smart phone fan it is good that the smart phone carriers who have been testing Windows phone 8 are bullish about it but will the General public want to buy Windows smart phones? Microsoft and it's OEM's have really got to make some damn good advertisement efforts to give smart phone customers especially new smart customers information about Windows 8 smart phones. I did not like the last Windows smart phone commercials they did not tell enough about the Windows smart phone features, when, and where you could buy them. it is important that People are told Windows phone 8 has a brand new Operating system with good features and is in smart phones that have the latest electronic available to smart phones today.

This is great. I'm super excited to see what WP8 can do. I'm really tired of seeing people say "omg its still a half baked os blah blah" and "its gonna flop because sales blah blah blah you can't root, etc." Personally, although I have rooted my phones in the past, I've only done it so I can make my phone as smooth and operational as possible. When I had WP7, I never had that urge, ever. And now I don't with JB on my Nexus. All these Androd "fanboys'" have probably never used WP, and it's honestly the most innovative stance on a IU i've seen. Much more dynamic and different than anything else, yet it's "retro" according to some. Wtf? How the hell does that make any sense? People on here are sometimes ridiculously annoying. Anyway, I'm looking forward to my first WP8 handset.

Folks someone made a remark that windows 8 is a half baked OS. wowo what a dumd statement that is. Windows 8 is based on the Windows "NT" operating system Kernel which is Over 12 years old..It is a more Powerful operating system than Android or IOS which were not around 12 years ago. Windows NT is well known to many People in the Apps developer community. Microsoft and IBM worked on the early version of it years ago. Microsoft made some changes to that version and broke away from IBM to create Windows "NT" I think the reason why "Verizon " like's Windows Phone 8 in better light than windows phone 7 is because they know of Windows NT having used it on laptops and desktops and servers for years. Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows Vista and Windows 7 Desktop/Laptop OS are based on Windows "NT"
