Hmmm! D way gsmarena posted this tin Lumia & Pureview, if am not mistaking I think they are trying to imply dat Lumia will always be different 4rm Pureview(i.e winOS & symbianOS) if its actually like dat it means we are still going to be seeing symbian in years to come! Nice 1!

What's the purpose of doing so much? when the consumers will be going for either an iPhone 5 or Galaxy S3

This is what I have been saying is going to differentiate smartphones from one another now. Technical specifications are becoming less and less important. The performance between my g2x and my galaxy s2 is not noticeable at all, and the performance between the s2 and the s3 even less so. All phones have great email clients, access to tons of apps, voice guided gps, etc. If battery life and waterproofing/shock-proofing can be implemented on sleek smartphones, Nokia has a winner and they can grab a big market share. I will get a Lumia phone if they have these features for sure.

It seems to me the market has been quite WindowsPhone-phobic without the help of any nano technology. Do Nokia have a lab somewhere away from Redmond WA working on fixing this ?

Believe me, Nokia's next flagship Windows phone (running WP8) is even more beautiful than the Lumia. Despite what (android) fanboy sites on the internet are reporting, it looks nothing like the 800/900.

This is Nokia's new thing. This hydrophobic nanotechnology can laugh in Moto's face.

Really, get it right.­ant-test-30812/
