Well about SGS3, it’s a completely new design, though not great! But if we talk about technology used inside the phone, or the performance, it outperform anyone in it’s class.

The world knows there is not a word like innovation in their copied dictionary. You comment was good enough indication for us to decide whether or not take you seriously. Guess what, nobody did. :)

Windows is made to run multicore processors to full potential. Android , maybe in 3 to 5 years will do that, as an operating system, at the best. The only android games that run ok on tegra 3, were specially designed for tegra 3. They do not run ok on qualcom processors. So i think i am right when i say that formidable wp8 dx games will run equally fantastic on every wp8 phone. Be it nokia, samsung, lg, china, taiwan, motorola, you name it, you got it.

If Nokia will announce S4 pro chip phone with 4,6-5,0 in 720 or 768 AMOLED screen, beautiful and sleek design with 9 mm waistline, MicroSD slot, +16 MP PureWiew(little bump allowed, if not killing the looks) camera and less than 160 g weight, it would be sucsessful one. Not that it would interest me since WP is there. They can make that phone later.

But for now, these are boring, not anything spectacular or new innovation. Not that the phone I imagined there had any innovations. But now it is boring live tiles, boring basic cameras, boring ambient light sensor that will still irritate everyone after all the hype. I am losing my trust to Nokias innovation. If they put real PW to these phones, it is good, but not innovation cause they already made it. It may be that 808 was the last big innovation for nokia.

And 185 g for this kind of phone is too much, comparing SGSIII, that seems to be the one to compare, weighs 133 g.

I'm not saying that these phones are going to be fails, but they are boring...

Waiting for that other finn to rise. Waiting for Jolla.
(And yes, I am finnish too)

I'll be using Android and WP8 side by side. I don't favor any OS nor maker. It's the Xperia T and Lumia 920 come holiday season. Happy camper here.
