" Lumia 920 is unique, WP8 is unique"

WP8 is the same on ALL WP8 brands. A HTC WP8 device will look and behave the same on a Nokia WP8 device as on a HTC Wp8 device or Samsive Ativ WP8 device. The only diversification will be the inbuild apps. In the case of Nokia it'll be Nokia Maps & Drive and in the case of HTC it'll be the Sense-hub.

There's nothing unique about an off the shelve OS that EVERYBODY can obtain!

Symbian is TRUELY unique. Harmattan is truely unique. Bada is truely unique. Blackberry OS 10 is truely unique and yes indeed iOS 6 is treely unique too.

WP8 is the new Android (for the fools and hopeless morons whom are happy to live in a walled garden!)

WP8 is unique compared to other OS. Android and IOS6 are basically a grid of icons spread across multiple homescreens.

WP8 has a unique look and feel with the live tiles and landscape menus. Yes, it will be the same across devices, but Nokia currently have the stand out WP8 device!

I understand your comment about manufacturer developed OS being truly unique but this does this make them any better than Android or WP8? Nokia obviously don't think so in terms of Symbian or Harmattan.

As I understand it they introduced Harmattan as a cross platform OS. They saw the way the market was heading with Apple, Samsung & Sony either launching or developing tablets, but time was obviously against them in terms of hardware development, plus the development costs would have been prohibitive, bearing in mind their financial prediciment. They are basically playing catch up in a very fast moving tech industry.

They have done remarkably well to deliver a phone which offers unique and valuable features over the best phones currently available on the market, but the software and tablet development was obviously a step too far too soon.

WP8 is their best chance...end of!!

Dude, I don't get what you're saying. Isn't it a good thing that an OS performs and looks the same on different phones rather than be laggy on one phone and smooth on the next? I don't want Windows Phone to turn into android with its s**tty manufacturer skins that just ruin the experience and limit the phone performance wise.
"There's nothing unique about an off the shelve OS that EVERYBODY can obtain!" How many phones have Symbian on them? Isn't that what symbian was based on, putting it into the hands of as many people as possible?

And how the hell is the Lumia not unique? It has tons of new hardware and is arguably the best looking cellphone to date (in my opinion)
And WP8 is more like iOS than Android.

Good luck to Nokia. Hopefully they climb their way back to the top eventually and take WP8 with them. There's nothing wrong with Android and iOS, I just wished people would realize that there's other choices out there that could suit their needs better than their current one.
