Fruitcake, 20 Oct 2011The Home screen layout really spoils these phones an why can"t we choose our own shortcut... moreYou can personalize the tiles i.e which tile you want can be brought to the homescreen but the tiles are permanent.
Well i Don't Want buy this shitty phone coz Windows Have Memory leak problem .. 2nd problem is market place was not so good 3rd problem is many unwanted service running but we dont see and close this service's...
The Home screen layout really spoils these phones an why can"t we choose our own shortcuts we want to be seen on the phone like we can with the Symbian 3 phones,as customizing my N8 is really good an with Belle on the way,i think i will be keeping my N8 until Nokia/Microsoft get the design on Windows phones changed
Not surprising that the N9 was a concept. But the bigger picture here is that the 800 is a true brethren of the popular and well-liked N9, so people have no other reason why they should also reject the 800 (except for being a fanboy or an MS hater). I like Nokia and Microsoft's strategy here. Hypocrites are trapped.
I've suspected for a little while that the real reason that the N9 wasn't cancelled completely was to enable Nokia to test the hardware platform they were using. I wonder how similar they are under the hood?
AnonD-25241, 20 Oct 2011Nokia and Microsoft, can't trust either of them when it's about stability. Buy a Nokia WP7 pho... moreI really like Nokia, but I can't disagree with you. They are really bad in updates timing (even if it is better now, with Anna and - hopefully - belle in just a few months).
BUT the facts is you can't say the same for Microsoft : you have just Apple and Microsoft that provide update for all device more than one year old. Okay, for Apple it's simple, they have just 2 devices to update. But you can Mango is on all windows phone today, just a fex weeks after the release begins.
Maybe you can't rely on Nokia, but I really think you can buy thei phones cause software part is Microsoft, not Nokia. And, given what they did with Mango, I bet you're sure to have at least 1.5 years of garanted updates, probably 2 years.
With which Android manufacturers you can be sure of that for ALL phones ?
Trevor, 20 Oct 2011Cool.... if i have money i will buy itif it is cheaper i will sure buy it. i am nokia fan using iphone temporarily.
Nokia and Microsoft, can't trust either of them when it's about stability. Buy a Nokia WP7 phone and the next thing you know that you are waiting for a software upgrade or a application rich OVI store for a couple of years before they finally decide to shut it down.
Better go for Apple or HTC or Blackberry phones. Atleast, those companies give you what they claim. They should kick Ballmer from Microsoft and Elop from Nokia if they want to bring back the old glory.
when windows 8 comes out for PC will wp 8 come out along side it?
AnonD-4697, 20 Oct 2011This is something I love from Nokia they don't copy the design to nobody...They make their own... morethe only radical change nokia made was to half move away from symbian operating system and thats because they were forced to by a plummet in market share. Nokia make the some of the most unreliable phones on the market and i cant imagine this being any different.
I am sorry for telling this, but there be only two Windows devices, Nokia 800 and Nokia 710.
i hope i could get this phone when its available in the american continent! the design is just great, guess some iphone heads will be jualous haha...
what a coincidence it was leaked the day after Galaxy Nexus, you know this was on purpose, lol.
Galaxy Nexus disappointed me so I hope Nokia doesn't do the same.
