"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!
moki, 04 Jan 2013Using plastic strips at top or bottom will not bring the same aesthetic feel an unibody design... moreThe strips won't do anything as far as asthetics or the feel go coz they r at the corners.plus it's barely noticeable in devices if it's the same colour.I didn't have any problem regarding signal strength.and am telling u this as a former n8 owner.
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..
ObserverPh, 04 Jan 2013So you're a fan of number games?? Take note that 1080p will suck your battery dry in no time. ... moreAs a matter of fact, Htc Droid DNA with 1080p display has better battery life than Lumia 920 having just 20mAg bigger battery. Be real. In the phone industry, except iphones all success depends on number.
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 .
popye, 03 Jan 2013Windows >>>>>>>>>>>>> Linux.nope, not really. quite the opposite.
[deleted post]That is not very true they might be slow in bringing it but it is available lumia 920 & 820 are here in Nigeria on MTN exclusive for 3month just like AT&T in us,and all the other lumias are here too but i dont know ur country.

Take note that 1080p will suck your battery dry in no time. I'll still stick to the Standards rather on going to the bragging rights. People can really be fooled by Marketing. . :)
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2013Yes haha "slow magic".
The phone will lag and battery drain in less then 2 hours.my note2 has much more juice than any nokia phone, and it lags free
i believe nokia can do something better than samsung with android on it
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.
Thephonegeek, 04 Jan 2013Where is jack the reaper Now? Same specs is a pretty bad Idea. Way too bad. I expect a 1080p ... moreuhmm? Is your eyes very sharp to destinguish 1080p,800p, 720p crammed into mobile screens? 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. .
