And my friend, HTC, just like Nokia or Apple or Samsung, they don't care about YOU. You are a consumer. They try to train you like a loyal doggy, but they cant (or at least, they should not be able). You have a DHD from 2010, great! You don't like it, you buy a different one. You like it, you keep it. It's just that simple. You won't be able to get a phone to last for 10 years, and be up-to-date! Just give me an example of this kind of support from Nokia! There is no example!

Who the frack are "you" that would be happy to donate to Nokia? And how a "loyal fan" would never want to upgrade the current phone? I don't understand how you're thinking, but you, sir, are wrong. Please don't use the word "loyalty" any more, it's meant for people, not corporations.

1)"Nokia WP8 is simply amazing!"
- That sounds like a definitive statement but nobody has ever seen or touched a WP8 device.
2)"apart from the highly anticipated new s/w & h/w features..."
- What about them ? 2010 specs ? Closed OS on which you can only change a few color setting and ringtones ? Beying forced to live with simple tiles for the rest of your phone's life ?
3)"(after some research), the design itself will surely be the best among all smartphone, based on the success of the current Lumia designs."
- Again marketing by some Nokia employee. Again you said it as if it's a given. How can you of anyone else state that "surely" it will be the best (haha) amongst smartphones ? It's NOT EVEN OUT YET so you cant "SURELY" know anything.
ALSO based on the success of the lumia line ? Hahahahaha....YES success compared to dumbphones.
You lame marketing trolls.
4)"Cant wait to get one! the flagship model for WP8 =)"
- Again marketing people talk right here. Persuading the people to thing that one is very interested and committed into buying a phone, and not just any phone, the flagship.

Seriously GSMARENA ...can't you do something about these advertising trolls ? Isn't advertising supposed to be payed ? Or maybe it is and we just don't know it.
Is this some form of advertising designed for the comment section ?

The opposite, we are more than happy to help Nokia out by buying a Windows Phone 8.
Never wanted to upgrade to 8 anyway on my Lumia 900
and sure loyal Nokia fans never wanted to either.

Go Nokia WP8 and under Elop, Nokia is looking in the best shape yet. This time next year lag-droid will be over.

Nokia's clear black display above 310ppi, 4" screen and Window 8 OS.
Samsung, HTC Apple will not match the display and for OS we have to wait no comments about it. But hopefully Nokia Will get the market share atleast up to 20% with in 1.5 years of new sales.

A backup / restore is a must. I hope WP8 will cater this facility. It's a painful job when we change WP7 devices.

Yes I'm also looking forward to the release of Windows 8/Phone 8 and will wait until after October before buying a new Smartphone, Tablet & Computer. By then hopefully there will be a true level playing field for comparison. Like others my experience to date with Android & some Apple products has not been a happy one, particularly Android with it's fractured manufacturing process, OS updates and lack of forward thinking building consumer loyalty. It's the reason why I will never ever buy HTC products again for fear they will again turn their backs on customers as they did with the Desire HD. Nokia I suspect will again lead the charge and bring back consumer confidence & certainty to the industry. Windows 8/Phone 8 may very well prove to be the catalyst.
