And if Nokia and microsoft will keep their promise. all of their wp8 range like from Lumia 5209 to Lumia 920 will support same update untill the given date ei june 2014. unlike android. only the high end and mid range are upgradable. those low end should buy a new phone in order to experience the latest update
Nokia is in the right track with Microsoft. Its just a matter of time. Nokia have financial problem thats why they put their trust in Microsoft. which is one of the largest software company in the industry.
If you are in the place of Nokia having financial problem. would you go to something that is still new or go with something that is already tested in the industry.
Of course you would go with a company thats already there for many years.
and Bill gates, the owner of Microsoft just earned the top spot of becoming the richest man on earth with $72B
and im sure he will not let his Baby wp8 to lose on in its own market. im sure he would not mind spending a hundreds of millions to make it better. that means a strong future.

I am fully satisfied with the nokia market place, I had an Android and from your 600k playstore apps; 300k are apps joke... or I lie?. I don't know for what the f#$% did you say about apps when you only need 10 apps your daily day.
Nokia has the best phones ever! and Windows Phone is much better than Android because Nokia phones are optimized for WP OS as well with iPhones, however Android is like a standard OS "for every cell phone" but in this world there's nothing standard for everything; that makes Android sucks.
Nokia made a mistake by sticking to only windows OS and could not get exclusive rights to the OS.Smart phone market share for nokia is less than 3%.With Good hardware,Nokia should start producing phone that runs andriod.Android has over 600 thousand applications and increasing.Nokia has no time to develop new software after missing Meago, so they should adopt android if they want a speedy increase in market share within months.
Camera, 22 May 2013As I say for Samsung, worth for Xperia Z.Water proff is not add value for me,useless, but resp... moreWireless charging is something I use very often. My Lumia 920 has it, works great, so I won't trade my 920 in for the 925.
Waterproof body from the Xperia Z is a nice thing, but the whole Xperia Z is a nice thing as the Phone is a beauty. Won't need it though, but it's a nice addition. Anyway, I don't like it running Android. The fact that samsung suddenly comes with that waterproof s4 means that Sony did a good thing with that waterproof Xperia, otherwise samsung wouldn't copy it to it's s4.
I hope the next Lumia flagship will be awesome again, with wireless charging, more camera innovations, 1080p screen because the mass want that, etc. I will buy it anyways!
Anonymous, 22 May 2013RIP nokia. Jolla is coming. Nokia can't stand anymoreI don't think Nokia is having bad dreams because of that. Everybody says goodbye Nokia, they are on the way back, so it's more like welcome again Nokia.
L925 takes excellent low light images,simply best for guys who go to alot of parties ;-)
Nokia gained to most devastating thing because of friendship with microsoft, no card slot, non-removable battery. Great.
You have a low end budget android, mine never freezes, android is like Symbian, Windows is a dumb OS with many useful things missing, for communication android and ios are better, and so is meego and Jolla,for android u need a new up to date handset to compare as android has improved alot
16 gb not enough, one photoe is minimum 1mb.most appln is need 10 gb.aftr balance mb is not enough for camera!
memo, 21 May 2013I don't see any facts in what you've written!
Look I'd subjective, people have different tast... moreAs I say for Samsung, worth for Xperia Z.Water proff is not add value for me,useless, but respect Sony for that inovation, but wirelles charging is.
Wodafone, T-Mobile have Lumia 925 with 32Gb or Lumia 920 int. 32 Gb.
Enjoy with your water proof Sony i will enjoy with my wirelles charging Nokia.
Another time about OS.

Nokia and wp8 is in the right track. its just a matter of time. i have android running ICS with 1ghz dual core 512mb ram. and my brother have wp8. same spec as mine. my phone feels ashamed compared to wp8. when we both using it like surfing web in free hotspot area. oh, ehehe, my browser force closes many times lol. our phone are both new. but we see the difference. the only win for android phone is the customization.
