Windows Phone in its new metro style has not received the acclaim it deserves from the media and sales staff in retail outlets (many of whom do not appreciate the OS). A closer inspection of it reveals it to be elegant and powerful. This new device ought to be successful like the forthcoming Pureview Lumia range from Nokia.

i'm a lumia user. while i have huge respect for Apple, i've got none for Samsung and what it stands for as a brand. It has got its popularity on the back of Apple. That's why I won't go with Samsung even if it's the last brand on earth. i'd then switch to smoke signals :D

Oh Lord, Symbian is the exact competitor to Windows Phone. Comparing WP to Android is the most absurd case. However Android has became a savior for most people in the planet while Windows Phone as a burden of mankind. Any objections?

Even tho smartphones are closing in with quad core, I honestly feel like Windows Phone is the now. It feels like today, quad core phones are too much, whereas dual core is ok - they're affordable and cost less than quad core, plus Windows Phone performs beautifully even on 800Mhz.

Even if they have trophy system, that is only for Sony android phones. Windows Phone has achievement for all OEMs. Xbox Live is built into WP. You can edit avatar, buy avatar, send messages to your Xbox friends, view\compare Xbox Live Achievements, and you can even control your Xbox from your WP. If you think Android phones are lag free, you haven't tried a WP and the iPhone 4S. Best looking Android games are exclusive to Android phones with Tegra chips not the Adreno chips found inside Xperia phones. Android has fragmentation on many levels.

BTW check out Infinity Blade II on iPhone 4S or the new Ipad. That's the best looking game for smartphone.

iPhone.? Huh,,, sammy, i think u better get ready for another lawsuit against apple.
If samsung sells more wp8 than nokia, that's because of the price lower as they did in their galaxy line as compare to other. But not because of the quality and originality that nokia/MS have standardized. Well, that's my opinion, im not trolling.
