I want the Note as well (and now that it's coming to Tmobile, I'll be able to get it) but don't lie and make it seem like the Note is just fast and smooth.

It's true though, he's most probably on a mission to "bribe and convince" the OEMS to make a WP device or two.

to be honest lg phones are not all that. stick with nokia windows phones. for a good reliable phone. and a future. it took 14 years to knock nokia of the top. what does that say. nokia will bounce. to top dog again very soon. Lumia 900 gone down a storm in the US. even Steve wozniack has one what does that tell you. even an apple co-founder has faith in nokia.

I tried the WP7 non mango before (one of my friend got a test unit, and i play it for around 3 hour), and it's boring like hell.

Android is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than WP7, and it's mirror in Samsung vs. Nokia sales unit. When Nokia try to sell WP7 instead of Symbian, they unit sold number down.... it's a simple math... WP7 is bad.... sales down....

its more about how OS works. most androids handsets are laggy unless you have something like SGS2 or better.

If you see the second hand price of lumia in UK, you'll know how f*ck up nokia were. and FYI symbian still outsold WP7. Only in UK lumia manage to outsold WP7 and that's because symbian fell into less than 2% market share, not because WP7 sales up. All in all, WP7 is an epic failure.

LG is one of the worst phone makers ever. Bad services, not much updates of their devices and software. I'm buying a new phone this month, but definitely not LG. I'm thinking of n9 but Nokia haven't developed MeeGo much, same with Lumia phones, not much development. I also would like to try HTC One X but according to some reviews it has a poor battery life. So I might wait a little for the Galaxy S3.

Come in guys wake up... Atleast after seeing lumia900 sales. wp has crossed symbian share in Europe, Nokia is doing good now with wp line up
Growth is good since nokia managed to sell 2million lumia with countries like USA &CHINA being excluded.
Im using WP powered lumia and im very happy with it. One can do lot with wp7.5. Its not at all boring once u synchronise social n mail accounts n download ur fav apps n make them live tiles.
I use weather,news,FB,mylive tile,analog clock as live tile n it looks really beautiful with all real time info at ur hand.
I agree that phones that r kept in stores look very boring(even to use) bcos u wont see any app rather than unicoloured dead tiles( call it as poor marketing from nokia,microsoft etc)
But wp is lot lot smoother n fun to use, i feel refreshed everytime i see my phone because it shows something new. And finally till date ie in 4months of my usage my phone has never freezed nor rebooted nor crashed. Its the combination of perfection n beauty.
