The only thing Sammy will have in its favor is probably its price

Guess I don't get that. The Odyssey (Love that name!!) has the potential to be a Tron-whuppin device. I am pumped to see it VS the High end Nokia and HTC's top end WP based on the ONE X.

Why ATT, why? Not gonna for that phi to show up on all carriers, which I doubt it will. Sorry Nokia if your Tmo device cant compete, it'll be either Samsung or HTC for me this December.

I think we can expect AT&T to be the better supported WP8 carrier at launch, as well it should be. But I am excited to see Verizon onboard at the starting line as well. There is also a "Trophy 2" rumor for Verizon from HTC buzzing around WP Central, and there are a couple fairly dependable Verizon sources on that site. So hopefully by mid-first quarter of 2013, we will see WP8 choices on 3 of the 4 top carriers.

Are you listening Sprint? Why let any customers think about getting away? What's 1 device gonna hurt?

Who's to say that Sprint is the one holding back WP8 devices for Sprint? Nokia is the WP8 cheerleader, and they havent put out a phone for sprint in about 8 years, long before any Nokia disdain occured for other carriers. And HTC and Samsung have been pretty ho hum regarding WP, and LG only put out 1 WP phone.

I want a high end option for WP8 on Verizon as well, but alas it seems Verizon's still not interested in taking any risks when it comes to having some variety in the way of phones. That Nokia Phi sounds like it's going to look pretty slick.
But these are just rumors; we'll see what the reality will be.

Folks now that Microsoft Windows 8 smart phones have a better operating system with more features than the windows 7 series has and their phones have hd screens and dual core CPU's and better Electronics to make them good smart phones worth the money.I hope that Microsoft does a better job of advertising their Windows smart Phones. some of their old commercials missed the mark. It is crunch time for Windows smart phones. Enough of them were sold to keep them around but will they sell enough of them to gain much more market share than the last 2 years. I will buy one. I hope that more people will do the same to make it a great third smart phone Eco system
