You must be right, all the engineers at Nokia dont have time for this 'lolli pop' because THEY SHOULD BE BUSY FIXING THE EXISTING BUGS.

There was time when I never believed that there are people who are stupid enough to fall for candy effects and lollies dollies but now yeah I have started to believe it.

It takes two hours of coding in SDK to come up with pop up play... Just a tad of playing with UI and navigation and you are ready... And the idea is not even original, this feature has been copied from Windows Vista/7. I will not talk about the usability of the feature and that too on a 4 inch screen lol...

11,600 engineers of Nokia don't have time to come up with these lolly pops you sammy fans are proud of... They've got better things to do... I can assure you that lol!

And what exactly are the 10x features of Galaxy Note that 808 PV lacks except the availability of time wasting HD games?

Does it have a 410 MP camera?
Or it has a 1.4 Ghz x 10 processor?
Or it has got 5 GB RAM?
Or it can play MPEG4, divx, H.264, mkv all of the formats out of the box and with fluidity?
Or it has CD quality audio recording?
Or it has a built quality that of tank just like 808 PV if not 10x times better?
Or it has on and offline GPS navigation as good as 808 PV?
Or it can multi task 30 apps at a time without force closing?
Or are you trying to say Dolby Surround Sound is 10x times worse than Wolfonic?
Or it has better better GPRS and EDGE for low coverage areas? (808 PV has class 33 while Sammy is stuck on Class 12)
Or it has better contrast ratio that provides better sunlight legibility?
Or it has an fm transmitter more powerful than that of 808 PV?
Or it has a more powerful external flash that kicks Xenon flash's butt?
Or it has features like ND filter, lossless zooming,ISO settings etc?
Or it has got a 10x bigger sensor than 808 PV?
Or it has a dedicated scaling chip besides GPU for graphical processing?
Or it has a 10 times better battery back up?

Please I really want to know, because I have used both and 808 PV really kicks a** of ugly Galaxy note in every way except having lots of apps...

Nobody wants WP8 - its the same unfinished POS as WP7. No applications, bugs, no features, overpriced HW and horrible battery life.

Elop has been firing disloyal employees that speak of
Lag-driod as a backup plan.

Elop is setting up Nokia with WP8 for a future we
asked for. Not Android. Not need for a backup when
the sales are increases at a high rate.

The true Nokia fans are with Elop.

Elop is bringing us WP8 and in sept 5th we all will be thanking him for the loyalty.

Market share increase shows people are listening when they are told Windows Phone is what they now like.

Samsung knows this as well.
LG should be following Smasung to make WP8

crapple and lagdroid fanboys can rant-all-they-want and troll-like-there-is-no-tomorrow right now because mobile computing will never be the same come the launch of windows 8 and windows phone 8 devices.

Nokia and Microsoft should've came with better products than the current LUMIA line. I mean, with the price of LUMIA 900, i can choose to buy Optimus LG 4x HD with the same money and better processor, battery etc.
Or even the older Galaxy Samsung Nexus for half the price but with dual core and other better stuffs.
Though, as Nokia fans, I would like to wait until the upcoming WP8 phones. If it's not as expected, well bye bye Nokia, welcome LG or Samsung..
IPhone ? Never in my mind...
BB ? That would be the last option..
