"Switching from polycarbonate body to aluminum-clad construction would be more than welcome news for Nokia N8 fans, who never really approved of the Finn's sudden love of polycarbonate."

Does not help N8 fans who do not approve of the move to Windows Phone!

As i said polycarbonate shells r great but it would't do any harm to nokia if it does introduce a phone with a diffrent luk n feel than the rest of it's chubby n bulky lineup.otherwise it's designs will also become monotonous like every other android OEM.
Everybody knows that it can't be a mainstream design but making one every now n then wouldn't hurt.

Bigger screen is a excuse to build bigger devices to house more battery and better quad core processors.

IMO, Its very limiting to put those specs of quad cores/1080p into a small 4 ~ 4.5 inch form factor.

Much like a ultra book vs a notebook..

I dont believe in these 1080 p display unless power consumption is optimised . What ever is the display or processor , It will be wasted if the device doesnt last a day.

And it is not just looks and feel designs are all about , there are a lot of issues i have a brother who is studying design engineering and he told me a lot about this . Almost all oems abandoned metal cases and designs for a reason right .

Yahoo. If you use 720p when others are using 1080p then you're gonna be screwed. There's a thing called marketing and you probably don't know about that. Thex why not make a single core phone. Wp can run with it without any problem. The better specs a phone have, the more it will be sold.

And Quads is still not stable on mobiles. We might see that at the 1st half of the year, but it is possible to see that at the 2nd half of the year. .
