Check out a Lumia 900 running the new WP 7.8 - read the full textA Senior Manager over at Redmond's Microsoft campus got hold of a Nokia Lumia 900 running a very early build of Windows Phone 7.8 and decided to tape the new homescreen and upload it to YouTube. He demonstrates the live tiles resizing in all three modes - small, medium and large. Doing so also...

It's the End of Nokia, days before L900 launched microsoft announced death of it. Only facelift nothing more cuz its hardware under specs Whats fault of people bought L800 900.There no ego problem to Nokia as Samsung put symbian in Satio on record. Nokia could bankrupt MDT year early. God bless its soul.

Why should Nokia use Android? Nowadays Android is the most popular and it only exist due thousands of apps. Without them, the os is nothing and many says the future will be ios and wphone. Nokia is thinking forward.

What should i do now?
I just bought Lumia 900 about 2 weeks a go and now i'm really regret for that, I wish i listened to the seller when he advised me to get S2 I777 :(.
I put it for sale no interest at 200$ and most of them sold at 180$ maximum! what a huge lost :( for me!

Small, medium and large - wow that's so awesome. If this is everything WP7.8 has to give I can see already packs of people buying windows phones.

Large, medium and small...decide which one do you want to stick up your A$$. MS just took Nokia to a new level from where there is no way north.

WP8 a complete step change. WP 7.8 similar look and will work on the current devices.

"So, yes, take my money! I will commit in a two year agreement for a phone that will be supported for the next three months. After that I will have no access to new apps, never will be able to perform multi tasking and will not have any major software upgrade. But who needs that boy? I can resize my tiles! Yippee! I'll be resizing my tiles for the next two years. Others might be getting new apps, new OSs or any other new stuff, but they won't be able to resize their tiles! Oh, wait. What?"
And at the time WP8 launches in just 3 months, expect heavily subsidized phones too. They need to promote their platform from zero. ALL OVER AGAIN. MS will make Nokia broke and then buy it for peanuts.
