well guys, let's see if this phone can perform better than its android counterpart.
If Nokia is making WP phones, the nobody can beat them. Look, Nokia, Sammy, Sony all of them put symbian in their phones few years ago. But Nokia lead it. Similar thing will happen with Nokia WP phone. Sammy will remain leader in droid and Tizen. Bcoz Nokia is not there.
If this info is for real, its a tough competition among WP devices too, with HTC gearing up new devices and Huawei ready with few. Tough time for Lumia series.
gijy, 04 May 2012who cares about samsungs windows phones?anyone who is interested in buying a wp device certainly will consider samsung in their choice list, except few pre conceived buyers[edited].
itsthearcs, 04 May 2012Or it'll be dual-core because it doesn't need more to work. Unlike ICS which needs quad core ... moreICS is for the games that get on Android, something your inferior devices don't get.
Anonymous, 04 May 2012Did the WP7 variant of the S2 ever show up in the end?Yes .... that is what is samsung focus S
TheAndroider, 04 May 2012Hmmm... I wonder if this is a dual core S3. I think its going to be atleast another year befor... moreOr it'll be dual-core because it doesn't need more to work. Unlike ICS which needs quad core to work anywhere near properly.
hb, 04 May 2012nokia WP fearnokia have no reason to fear. 80% of windows phones selled by orange in europe are nokia lumia 800.i have this statistics from our marketing department, not from geek's forums. no one will take korean trash if he/she wants especially a windows phone. you must be insane not buying lumia 800 instead of any korean plastic toys. in windows phones segment, nokia is number one, this is the real fact of wp sales in the last 9 months, there is no room left for others jokers
Hmmm... I wonder if this is a dual core S3. I think its going to be atleast another year before MS allow phones to have quad core processors running Windows. Either way, it looks like a galaxy cousin, as long as MS don't make it crap (make the specs lower than what people want) it should be a good phone :).
Wow I was joking yesterday about the GS3 running Windows Phone and lookey here, there it is. Interesting.
You see, 2013 could be a real problem for Nokia..
At the moment, pretty much when you think of a Windows phone, you're thinking 'Lumia' and Nokia...
As soon as MS remove the specification restrictions on the handsets... people like HTC (who have been making Windows phones FOREVER) and Sammy, have all this tech and all these handsets waiting in the wings... it's going to be much easier for them simply to slap Winmo8 on their phones, than it is for Nokia to start from scratch entering into the spec wars..
And let's be honest, because of the nature of Winmo (very standardised and a just a little bit boring) - the only thing that will distinguish user experience will be the handset and the specs of the handset...
Let's hope Nokia get Pureview into Lumia by next year to give them a 'killer distinguishing feature' otherwise they could lose a lot of ground to Sammy and HTC and will die as a result...
