Good to see Nokia making this move.
I have pretty much made up my mind to dump SGS III (great hardware but crappy OS). In fact I never seen or owned any droid with out issues or stupid quirks and lags in performance. Even the ancient SOC in Lumia with WP gives my SGSIII good run for what is worth for. WP can continue to deliver quality experience like iOS I see no reason to buy another droid, ATIV S or 920 will be my next smartphone.
to bad for NOKIA, years ago they rule the world, now? look at them.
i guess if your on top you loose sight of the world and it goes and messed up with your head, getting over confident, now look at Nokia, in a sorry state.
i think its the Management especiaaly the top Management at Nokia that share the most blame. to bad. i hope Nokia can get its house and focus in order, or Nokia will have no more chance to survive.
Android fans, enjoy the market dominance o Android while it lasts.
WP has the superior quality of iOS plus being open to be used by all manufacturers.
When its app count grows, it will dictate the doom of Android :)
Its better to Die trying rather than surrendering.. Go nokia ,wp8 is the way to go. Show the world that,going with the stream is very easy and even cowards can do it. But it takes real guts to sail upstream !!

Nokia really needs a pool of good accountants!

Most of the people choses Samsung droid bcoz they can't get a Nokia droid. That's why samsung rises. I am just talking about WP phones. Read carefully.. Nokia launched Lumia 800 and Lumia 610 in India. They sell far better than Samsung Ominia W. This is the fact buddy as I am from India. Samsung is leader in android not in WP.

Nokia is always the winner....bad luck last 2 years in marketting, but i hope this 820 & 920 will catch up market back within 1 month, just wait......our Nokia will be top than Sammysee
I think Lumia 920 will sell in good numbers and it should!
However, i doubt it would kill the android/iOS. Also, calling wp8 crap or Lumia a dead phone is also quite baseless!
I think Nokia and WP would be a happy lot if they could be @10% market share by the end of 2013.
What goes with the Lumia:-
Amazing n different design (mostly people like it) - Now people can argue it looks like the n9 or lumia800 but guys think about it ... Lumia is still not a very popular phone and one of its positives has been the looks so why fiddle with it? (I can hardly see any difference in the looks of the s3 n note2...also if the leaks are correct new iphone looks ... meh!)
Signal strength, built quality of Nokia - Now the phone has not yet been released but this assumption is purely based on the past of Nokia. If i were to buy an android, i'd rather buy an HTC/Moto than samsung.
Chk this out
Better Battery - Though people can argue that AtivS has a bigger battery but my observation has been that Nokia batteries generally perform better and are long lasting. Its just not about the mAH reading but how to use it. (Ever seen two 1.5L engines producing different power/torque outputs coz of better use of technology). However, again this is an assumption and the real results would only be known when the phone is launched.
Not getting in the other details like the amazing screen, camera etc.
What goes against it:
Hmm.. no memory card slot - Well can be very important for many people but even the iphone was launched with a 16GB? version..This has 32GB + 7GB free on skydrive. For most of the users it should be enough.
Dual Core n 1GB Ram - Sadly people look more at numbers that the real performance. Lumia 800 was excellent when I used it on single core and 512mb ram. Its not a computer!
Less Apps - Agreed. But earlier due to the lack of multiple core support it was a major problem but now it should not be. Also, again number wise market place
has much less app but i think what matters is the number if USEFUL apps.
WP8- Most people seem to hate it for n number of reasons. What I loved about WP8 specially was the integration of social media in it. No need for an app. Check this out
Its a different OS with different capabilities!
Having said all of this, a lot depends on how the phone actually performs when its launched.
Also, it pretty hypocritical when people bad mouth WP8 for less options and crib when nokia offers the phone in different colors!
If you don't like a color don't buy it but speak for yourself only. By posting Statemnts like "Who would want that yellow color" you only make a fool out of yourself.
I for one would buy that color in absence of the Blue.
Also, its pretty sad reading comments like all wp8 has is a copy of android features. I think its called evolution. You learn, improve, implement. There are many features that age old mobiles have had which android also has. Its BS to call it a copy.
Last but not the least, GSM arena is a great forum and people actually visit this to get help in deciding what to buy. Let's make valid comments so that it would further improve the quality of this forum!
At the end of the day people would buy what they like but why say no to having more choice?
I am almost certain to buy a 920 unless there is something really wrong with the phone or the price is outrageous!
samsung = bad phone cheap as hell only save their ass by android
iphone = bad phone inside and out with good marketing
nokia = great phone but with very bad marketing , i think i can live with this one.
mrin93, 11 Sep 2012i wanna ask one thing about people comparing dual cores and quad core processors in mobile p... moreI see that by you we would still be rocking single core phones, if Nokia doesn't have the latest and greatest tech doesn't mean it is useless.. As i have a quad core phone it does make a difference in gaming try playing a Tegra 3 optimized game and the normal version of that game.
