I am still undecided which one to I should get i.e. Lumia 920 (more likely) or ATIV S. But one thing is certain, I am going to get rid of SGS III I have now, and hopefully with it all the memories of an highly inefficient, poorly performing OS.

looks so good, but will W8P allow organizing apps in folders? (unlike 7.5)?

More focused on social integration.......what about the ppl who dont require it and for ppl who dont hav kids??? :P:P:P:P i think as its a new OS it will not be received well but once the devices start to sell..THE WORD OF MOUTH!! will be its biggest success :)

Sorry guys.. I already have IPhone 4 and Samsung Glaxy SIII, S III Sucks, needed to reboot once a week else it erratically behaves, most fragmented OS. Iphone is no more appealing..same interface same design..no new initiative and the ITune Sucks..

It is time to Switch to WP 8, I am impressed with Nokia 920,, it is my next phone as soon as it comes to INDIA.. cant wait to get hands on it..
Awsome looking phone
New OS
New Features
Best Camera among all other high ens phones
increasing APP, at least TOP 50 apps are there so I am ok.. you do not use all,,, having 600000 app doesnot mean you use all,,, I mainly uses the top 20-30 app..and may be some games..so I am happy and waiting.. come on Nokia..release it is India..I will be one of the first..to go for it..

This looks more like on of those long going tv-series, that at some point start inviting random celebrities for guest-appearances to keep people watching. WP7 was season 1, WP7.5 was seaon 2, WP7.8 season 3 and now, at season 4 with WP8, they try to get extra attention :).
.
Anyhow, nothing wrong with Alba.
