does anyone firmly know whether this phone can recv OS updates to future releases, say WP8 and beyond. I use s60 devices that can't get Anna or Belle updates, dont want to be stuck like that. I would prefer buying a Belle phone instead if that's the case.
nokia rulez, 05 Nov 2011Nokia copying iPhone Again?..... where did you hear this joke it make me laugh out loud Apple ... moreAlex is right, ders no cardslot, der wil not be any file transfer on Nokia WP, same as iPhone. The only difference is the name, its no longer iTunes but Zune. Same thing, and same result: U cant use ur own files, u will be tied in and have to pay for everything u will put onto this fone.
Yes, they copy iPhone, not design or tech, but ecosystem. A strategy to lock you in and make you do things THEIR way.

Me and lotsa others said that before Bada was available in stores, "there will be no updates, der will be no software, samsung has never cared abt fixing bugs and will not do it this time also". This was publicly known, you knew it also.
Now its time to warn ppl also about Nokai+WP, this is not gonna be a happy story, its gonna be bad. Dont think of what Nokia did in the past, this is the new Nokia we are dealing with, Elops Nokia in bed with Microsoft. Nothing good will come out of this. Feel free to buy Lumia but be prepared to regret. Windows Mobile OS has proven too many times in the past that it doesnt have the right of life.

Look at HTC desire series and Sony Xperia, do they look anything like iphone? not outside and not in the UI. And motorola droids, any resemblance to iphone? No.
Nasib, 05 Nov 2011Great joke from Nokia.they should have used Iphones design most of Android phone looks like a bad copy of iPhone (may be this make there user feel like they are owning some expensive phone which in reality is a cheap low quality phone)

But for me it is something different from other OS .. Its new and refresh .. And for me its attractive and good looking too .. And i think it might be a great advantage for it to succeed .. And between don't say bada is a good OS .. Because i am one poor soul using bada phone(s8500) and suffering .. Its very laggy and no updates too ..
My opinion: nice phone, and I've been a Nokia fan for so many years. But I will NEVER buy a windows phone. And I think so many people feel just like me
santanu917384545576, 05 Nov 2011it is because windows phone doesnt support a card slotHTC HAS CARDSLOT ON WINDOWS PHONE!
800 dosnt have one coz they want u to buy everything from them and not share it with others, u shud use Zune, they dont want u to just transfer your mp3 collection. Wait and see, u will regret if u buy one.
This is a seriously restricted unit that will make iphone look liberal =)
...Ok, thank you very much.....No java, no secondary camera, no memory card slot, no flash player.....and thanx for the windows, though.
It is nice but no front camera, it is very big disadvantage... this phone
Android is old and full of unnecessary junk. Windows OS is fresh and tremdously useful, enough said.
The bad thing is... U. S. has to wait for a 4.3" (or higher) device until 2012.
note: no dual core is necessary, the system runs super smooth! What is needed are bigger/crisper screens and great built quality.
My opinion: a nice phone, and I have loved Nokia for so many years; but I will NEVER buy a Windows phone. And I think that so many people feel just like me.
ppl, do not order this one yet, chances are you can not transfer your files to and from this fone, and bluetooth file sharing may be restricted also. This smells like iPhone mentality, not only do Microsoft wanna earn money when you buy it, but its also supposed to be expensive to own, a creditcard will be as important as a simcard i fear...
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2011this one looks good yes but insanely xpensive,.samsung omnia w may look simple but has almost ... moreYes, but the Nokia Lumia 800 also has:
- Mix Music
- Gig finder
- 20 Free EA Games
- Dedicated ESPN
- Better Camera
There is no good reason to buy any other brand than Nokia with WP right now
