Lumia 920 has the best hardware, better than S3 and
iphone 5.

In order for nokia to survive, the only way is switching to Android.

Lumia 920 runs on Android JB will be a giant killer for both S3 and iPhone 5.

Wake up Nokia and forget about Microsoft!

Today Nokia Lumia 920 is number 1 Daily Interest list, this could end up in sales numbers and market share for Nokia and WP8... Q2 2013 will have the answers when most of the line up phones would have WP8

It is interesting to read some 'informed' comments, which probably are based not on 'experience' but rather from whatever could be gathered from 'other' sources.

As I mentioned in my previous comment that currently I am using SGS III (which is my 7th high end droid in last few years); and all these droids suffers from OS instabilities, e.g. unexplainable reboots, hang ups, sudden slow downs or slow performance, and some unwanted quirks e.g. my sensation upon each reboot wanted to 'optimize' all installed on the phone applicaions (I use very few of them, but stock phones usually come with lots of crapware ontop of the crappy OS), my SGS III's home screen folders open at their own etc.

So in a nutshall, Android like Linux is really fun to play with (just to make it work), but after a while it isn't fun anymore. It just doesn't work as it should right out of the box. Hence, there are reasons that more than 22% of android users want to dump their platform (just do a search about this recent survey).

I jumped ship from iOS few years ago, and it provides great reliability and user experience, an area where WP is on par with it, and when it comes to raw performance it feels much more snappier as well. Nokia, instead of choosing a an inefficient / insecure / un-reliable OS, IMHO they rightly went for WP.

I don't see a way forward for Nokia. If they're still stuck on their age-old OS of Symbian, and have now decided to converge with Windows, they're really not going to be in the running for anything within the telephonics market. In fact, Nokia couldn't have chosen a worse time to team up with a bad company - Windows is going down the pan quicker than you can say 'Blue screen of death,' and with the likes of OSX on the front foot of leading technology, it's difficult to believe they can keep up.

Sorry Nokia, but I think it's time you thought carefully about your decisions, and maybe think about joining the Android circuit.

and am not talking about single core processors being standard
and the reason nokia doesnt have quadcore is coz WP8 doesnt support it as of now but the fact is WP8 is uses a dual core more efficiently than an android phone because of its unique kernal
and talking about quadcore
u just gave me example of tegra 3
now temme how many phones are out there with tegra 3 processors and sure i have heard of games optimized for tegra 3
BUT for those games u need to tegra and not vrybody uses them and now temme in ur appstore how many tegra 3 optimized games are there !!
u know the current market is like larger the better
but the truth is android havnt even utilized the dualcores upto its maximum efficiency !!
just imagine if they go by that uproach i wont be surprised if next year the come up with 6 cores
but the fact will still remain , if a quad core used more efficiently than the 6 core , quad core will be better !!

"to understand what happened"
simple:
they can't compete with iphone4 camera, so they had to use one for filming the video.

yes they may not like the publicity but it tells the public the truth about "camera" phones and that they are not cameras but rather phones dont you think ?

Android is never gonna coming to Nokia. Android was established to bash Nokia's Symbian. They have to move on with a different OS other than Android. And it seems that WP8 is a better choice.

The Robot Droid feeds on hate and anger of its haters to grow bigger and stronger. Hating on Android makes it even popular and stronger...The more you hate Android the more is grows.. Fools better like Android so the comes to it down fall. The ONLY way to bring Android to it's downfall is to just like it and use it...as simple as that. Android will continue to dominate the market share, cos some stupid people wont stop hating it!!

Apple iOS = Apple is Overpricing Smartphone...lol
WP8 = Worst Platform for 8 year olds
