We’re definitely impressed with the Nokia Lumia 800 - it’s a gorgeous Windows Phone handset standing out with its slightly convex forms, but when it comes to Nokia Windows Phone…

This may work as long as it's not cheap plastic, and cost above the average $200-299 price point on a carrier.

They should rather wait for Windows Phone 8 for their next flagship smartphone, instead of launching something with specs over a year old. They should instead bring a slightly revised Lumia 800 to USA, with a front-facing camera, NFC and better battery life, as well as a lower price.
If those specs are true, then it is not worthy of the '900' branding.
8mp cameras are now becoming common on most new phones, and its sad that Nokia doesn't step it up, considering the cameras from the N8 and previous N-series.
And with the new 'S4' chips coming in a few months...

Not sure there is a difference between updating the 800 series now, or updating the 900 series later. I think the 900 series would sell better here and it makes sense to release it rather than wait. Besides, any Nokia released will be supported with updates.

But I agree with your idea- if you can wait until mid-year, than I would say do it. The hardware will be better, and the build will be designed for the next software. Not to mention Nokia has said Apollo will really shine on their devices.

Exciting can't wait until CES. 2012 Is going to be the year that will bring Nokia back or bury them for good.

I May not be popular by saying this but if it does not have a front facing camera many
people will not see it as a Nokia flagship phone but it is good enough for me. Metro tiles are best viewed on 4 inch or better smartphone size screens. 4.3 is a good sweet size for a windows smart phone. bring it on Nokia. The Americans will buy it
