I have never tried an WP7 phone but i might try one if they make a phone with 16gb - 32gb storage as standard and also if there is a good camera on board. and if they build it with the same build quality as the N8

Remember the micro-USB plug on the Motorola Q9/V8/V9? Noone expected it, but it set the standard for most, if not all, to follow, except the almighty brand, who insists on some phones still only offers the micro-USB plug for data only but NOT charge via USB!
Jake Peterson, 20 Feb 2011I can't believe some ignorant thought nokia would take over microsoft....gosh, microsoft is wa... moreGuess the following statements should be correct:
MS (Windows/office) users don't necessary use the almighty brand's mobile phones.
Most almighty brand mobile phone users are users of MS (Windows/office) products
Mac users aren't likely to use the almighty brand's phones, but may likely be using almighty brand's products like MS Office
So who is (MUCH) bigger? Microsoft or the almighty brand?
I have NOT bought a single almighty brand device in the past 13 years, yet all the computers I've used so far have MS Windows/Office in them. One can easily survive without the almighty brand but not necessary Microsoft, as of 2011.
Do hope Android and other OS's start to takeover Windows, and someome else comes out with a product better than Office.

W7 has lots of backdrops like bluetooth file transfer, themes,apps media support like DIVX.
Nokia has to overcome these limitations,and its very hard to overcome. for example in Android why I prefer Samsung is complete multimedia support(plays almost all files incl avi etc)and nice screen and nice camera etc...
W7 limitations will be very hard to remove its a retarded software, by taking android nokia could have entered into competition with other mobile manufactures
I'm not sure what do you, guys, think about Nokia customising WP7... Adding Nokia tune? - That's not customisation! You will never see in ANY WP7 mass storage, bluetooth file transfer, maybe not even flash... Nokia use to be top notch in connectivity. I guess, this is over from now...
I have an Android phone, and a good one - Galaxy S. Do you think I'm happy with that? Nope... I'm not! In the same way as Apple and Microsoft are obsessed with their app store, Google is obsessed with its magical cloud. IMO, the last "honest" smartphones on the market were Samsung S 8500 Wave and Nokia C7, as I dont like the smartphone interpretation in the N8. All the next smartphones from now on, will be just clouds extensions, and that's sad... I can't resist not saying that...
Nokia as made the Right Choice as if they would have choosen Android there batteries using this might have drained out to quickly an more people slagging down Nokia,thats the only trouble with the Android Smartphones the batterylife is really the worse out there,hope we do get the windows phone in the Summer
We see lot of andriod runing smartphone frm all maker so they did there job now its time for Nokia and windows to show what they have in there mind for Nokwin fans.

Don't worry folks, the evergreen nokia is going to succeed and make us proud....they're gonna connect all the android and ios users..lol

So the bottom line is microsoft loves nokia plus nokia is rich.
