It looks promising, but that's only because it looks *just* like Android but with circular icons instead of square-ish. I think if someone bought this, they may confuse it for Android and be sorely disappointed when they don't get all of their apps back.

Some of the things I see, I really like and hope others will implement. LOVE seeing a firewall and would like to see that make it to iOS, Android, and WP8.

nokia should have done better than this. hate the UI on samsung. they should have done better looking ui. it would be like a phone with a UI of Samsung but runs on different OS's. whats the point on changing the OS when the UI are the same?

The phone looks exactly like the Galaxy S4. The UI looks like Samsung's skinned Android. The OS basically looks like Android minus Android apps. It'll be hard to make it sell unless it's super efficient.
