NOW in Romania on grey market, a Nokia lumia 800 and Nokia N9 are about 250 euros without contract,totally free and this is a superb choice. Is is all about the money,not the fact if Lumia 900 is a total high end of our times like Samsung Galaxy S3 or not. At 250 euros will deserve every cent

With so many smart phones now using a micro sim, I'm wondering why this is considered a disadvantage.

all thisupdating os craze is a recent thing introduced by the arrival of android and it's fragmentation issues, i'm not bashing on android as i am an android owner myself and i love it but a few years ago nobody gave a flying crap about updating thier phone to a next OS and as most manufacturers said on android the best part of the single core devices may get android 4.0 and thats it, so most of them have got 1, at best 2 major os updates, thats saying from 2.2.x to 2.3.x and some lucky ones 4.0.x, and the single core android phones releasing now with ICS can bet to be stuck on it forever and they are still selling, so i dont think to an average user this will matter terribly as long as the phone works and does what they need it to do.

As for all the people claiming nokia is dead i beg to differ, Nokia is far from dead, they may not be top dogs anymore but they still ship an impressive amount of phones, i mean we as super smartphone users are in the top 10% of the population, in places like africa and south east asia people are way to busy surviving than caring what goes into their phone and what apps they can install as long as it calls and sends texts they are happy with it, and nokia is still king of those so called dumb phones in that part of the world.

So all in all i think, provided WP8 is very good, comparable to or better than Android and IOS the next nokia flagship along with nokia's knowhow into the making of one like the nokia maps which to date are still the best offline mobile navigation software and some pureview technology to market it with will really make a big splash into the mobile phone market, and for all the samsung and htc and what have you not fanboys and girls who bash on nokia i say that you better hope that nokia does not switch over to android because if they do then the other companies may as well call it quits as nokia knows how to make a buzzworthy phone and as far as marketing goes buzz is all you care about, what i mean look at the past couple fo years how nokia has released phones on supposedly dead or useless platforms and how much buzz they have created, phones like the nokia N9 on MeeGo, and the N8 and N808 on symbian, and those phones still top the charts in terms of buzz and this is all good marketing to get people to look at the company as an innovative company, so if the same people hear about an innovative phone by that company on a widely known platform like androind, coupled with decently specced hardware the other manufatcurers who have very little in recent innovation (i mean from single to dual core to quad core, that's mere evolution, and same goes for screen resolution) are in for a tough time.

those are just my two cents

I ditched my Galaxy SII and iPhone 4S for this phone. Call quality and signal reception are much better than the other two. Camera is pretty close to Galaxy SII after the recent firmware update, but won't touch the iPhone 4S'. This phone is reliable as the iPhone 4S but can't say the same about Galaxy S2. Android isn't known for reliable and that is true for all my Android phones. I have hundreds of apps on Lumia 900 and iPhone 4S, they both run fast like they have no apps. Android phones slow down with more apps. I will get a WP8 later. Windows Phone has the best interface and can get things done quickly.

This phone has all the hallmarks that sets it apart, just like my Sony Ericsson K750 did when it came out. In fact, I'm still using that seminal phone and can't find any modern phone that quite replicates its functionality or quality.

Android (the project) have said many times they have no interest in matching desktop browser functionality. For myself currently I have sites that I need/want to use that I can't use on Android.

I currently have a phone and so am happy to wait for WP8 as some of the additional features are useful to me.

My point is though (and maybe I am in the minority in terms of requirements) that base applications are not all the same across platforms.

That said, it was a wise choice for Nokia to "steal" their own design but dumb choice to install it with Microsoft WP7.5 ... now if the Lumia 900 had Android 2.3 on it, Nokia would of made an absolute killing in sales, but guess they have stephen elop to thank for all but killing Nokia.

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-07-04 22:00 from HBK5 - click to readNo actually Samsung produced Bada OS as an alternative Android, and did give it a major overhaul with Bada 2.0 and both wave 1 and Wave 2 can have Bada 2.0 on it, Microsoft on the other hand have said sorry WP7 and 7.5 devices will only get 7.8 which is a new UI experience no major OS platform change.

as for Nokia and MeeGo, they walked away from it, Intel kept "MeeGo" alive by going to Samsung which in turn have said they will merge the Bada OS with Intel's MeeGo to create Tizan and in fact Tizan UI is extremely the same as Bada's implementation of TouchWiz 4...

Still the Wave 3 v Lumia 900 ... the wave 3 comes out on top for the sheer fact that it does not castrate users from having an open platform experience unlike control freaks that Microsoft are as they learn t from the worst which is Apple.
