Nokia lost the top spot of mobile phones sold by volume to Samsung, so since they want their top spot back, Samsung is the obvious "target" to beat

Class act, this is how phone manufacturers should behave, encouraging each other in a civil manner to do better. No over the top comments and leave the lawyers on coffee break, just bring on the great devices. I hope Nokia and Samsung, as well as RIM (BB10) do well with their new ventures.

Well, if it is anything near the ugliness of the pureview 808 then Nokia should prepare for another profit loss. I don't know about you but I don't want to carry phone as thick as a 500 page book and has huge weird looking lenses at the back. Not to mention, it is running on Windows Phone meaning my favorite apps and games won't be supported.

Have you checked the Windows Phone Marketplace? I would guess 90% of popular apps are there. EA, Gameloft, SquareEnix, Microsoft Studios, Namco, Glu, etc, are all there with their top games, and I would say their quality is above that of 99% of Android apps (and compatibility, too), and there are also fewer clones/ports/duplicates of titles, hence the lower overall app population. Also, Microsoft is paying developers a good amount of money to develop better programs, and port popular ones from other ecosystems to Windows/WindowsPhone. Zynga (WWF, DS, etc) is supposedly coming within the next few weeks, as well.
As for the camera, considering its borderline DSLR quality and replacement for a point-and-shoot, I can give plenty of leeway for a slight bulge for a superior camera, since it's one device in my pocket instead of 2, or one "jack-of-all-trades" device where I don't feel I need to lug around something else for everyday interactions. Similarly, since it's very likely that any Lumia PureView sensor would be around 20-21MP, the sensor (and bulge) would be significantly smaller (if any at all).

why so defensive? am I not allowed to have MY FAVORITE APPS. And as a previous Windows phone owner, 90% of the apps I need are not in the windows marketplace.
And I'm saying that if it's anywhere near the looks of the Pureview 808 then I'll pass since it is too ugly for my taste.
