if you use your phone as a tool, you dont want a plastic laggy phone just freeze when you need it the most.

nokia wp are a diferent path between 4cores laguie malware phones and small glass phones.

btw my wife restart her iphone several times a week, i dont need to restart my wp in weeks, dont need to say that android phones need to be restarted everyday

Is there any chance about this handset available in India. It's good handset. I think if price will be in Rs.10,000/= to Rs.15,000/= .Handset will be huge hit in India in this segment......

This phone would be perfect for the pre-paid market like Metro PCS, Cricket, Boost and Virgin. This is a market that Windows should attack very hard because there's only Android and Blackberry there.

Oh, come on, this is the f*cking slightly redesigned version of Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G!
I didn't see any resemblance with Nokia Lumia 710

I am thoroughly disappointed with the S3 in terms of design and the overall structure. TouchWiz has gone too far with customizing the skin which is absolutely crap. You never get a feel of ICS though ICS skin is much better than TouchWiz. What's the use of all those killer specs if the design and UI doesn't appeal you. Focus 2 is a much better, smarter design compared to S3. Had it been an Android phone I would have definitely gone for it. I'll may be prefer a Windows phone after seeing Apollo.

How is it "On the cheap" ??

It's still a $100/month odd contract for 2 years!

I wish the US would get it through their thick heads that the upfront cost is totally irrelevant.

A "Cheap phone", would be $0 on a $50/month contract. Not simply shaving off $50 or $100 on a $2400 commitment !!

I don't think that people here (Germany) prefer the Nokia brand in general, but as long as Nokia is the only brand that offers awesome apps (navigation, maps, music,...) I wonder who would be so stupid to buy something else than a lumia (at least if someone is looking for a windows phone)

since all windows mobiles have identical specifications, ruled by microsoft, it is obvious that nokia is the leader because its name is too strong yet. nly brand counts when you take a windows,and this is very bad for asian toys makers

Since there is not WP to copy from apple, they have decided to copy Nokia and that too Lumia 710 which runs WP7. I would have resigned as the head of Samsung Designing Department. What a shame!
