Samsung Android. This is exactly what Microsoft will be betting on for its mobile comeback, it seems.Not all might be lost, though, as there are plenty of Nokia fans around the world still, and with Windows 10 Microsoft has a strong contender on its hands, too. Perhaps not so in developed markets, but in emerging ones not everything is Apple and
According to Ajey Mehta, chief of Microsoft’s mobile devices in India, the company will be releasing new, top-shelf Lumia models in India when Windows 10 Mobile hits this fall. “If we want to build Microsoft as a strong consumer brand, we need presence at the flagship, high-end segment,” he said. Word. Whether it will be a camera-centric 1020 successor, the rumored Lumia Talkman and Cityman, or all at once, we will be all eyes and ears what Microsoft has in store for us in time for the holiday season.

You won't be disappointed, especially if you don't need apps. Windows phone is a great OS!

I develop apps primarily for Android and iOS but I will start publishing apps in the Windows Store when Windows 10 Mobile is already available to show my support on Windows Mobile platform. Competition is good for everyone so I will support it.

Seeing how well 1020 keeps its position in camera rankings after almost 3 years I'm really thrilled what next PureView will bring to the table. If it comes with SD slot and at least 3000mAh I'm all for it. And if they don't go with more than 5 inch, 930 is perfect form factor.

same here... if 940 or 1030 will have a better camera then the predessors, then I will surely go for it. Otherwise, note 5 is coming anyway which can make me forget all other options. I am not a fan of 1020 bcoz of slow camera and bad auto mode, 930 shines in auto mode. I hope microsoft will put a great auto mode

The City man and Talkman are going to be great devices but I might hold out until I know for sure that the Lumia 1020 successor isn't coming to T-Mobile especially with the ease it will be to get the phone If it becomes available. The 1020 with it's slow shot to shot times and slightly off color temperature is still my favorite phone for taking pictures. A successor would solve all the missing links from the original 1020.

Mr. Elop did a great job debuting the lower cost Windows 10 capable Windows mobile smart phones but His mistake was not getting "ONE" flagship Windows 10 capable Windows Mobile smart phone in the market place in over a year. Apple, LG, Samsung and others came out swinging with great designs and made money on their high tech smart phones. Where was Microsoft! US Windows smart phone fans like myself willing to pay for a high tech Windows smart phone were told to Wait Wait Wait. Some would be buyers of Windows smart phones did not wait they have an Apple or Android smart phone now. Microsoft had better bring out some SUPER GOOD cheap flag ship Windows Mobile 10 Smart phones to get back some GLORY and reasons People should buy a Windows Mobile Smart phone. I will wait to buy a Windows Mobile smart phone because Microsoft's Universal Apps and continuum make it a formidable smart phone to have because Windows Mobile smart phones will work almost like a MINI COMPUTER and integrate working well with my Windows 10 desktop and Laptop computers.
