Why would you pay $800 for a mediocre windows phone when you can get a comparably equipped samsung or htc for half price ?
WP probably won't make it this round. It is still immature, with many limitations and -to me- it is awfully ugly. It has a long distance to cover if it wants to catch up even with Belle.
The problem is, is Nokia in position to wait WP to mature? It's almost sure they will be the leaders among WP manufacturers sales wise, but will these figures be enough to keep them alive?
used nokia exclusively for the last 10 years, thought yeah windows & nokia is a brilliant idea! but it looks like windows is like apple! u have to use zune/itunes! no usb storage etc etc. i think ill skip! its going to be my first step into the smartphone world, android ics i hope ur coming to motorola's atrix! ill wait on purchasing just to be sure!! I like that plug in ur mouse, keyboard and screen, no need to sync to laptop anymore!
Why would you buy this when you can have mighty N9, this is like poor man's N9.
Nokia, just bring on N9 with qwerty, please!!!!!
Add a gyro, a brighter display and load iOS into it. And there u are, the perfect phone....!!!!!
I'm liking this phone and Windows Phone now. Used to hate it before. I used to think it's utter bs. But upon reading and watching video reviews, it seems to be a fantastic phone and operating system. But I will wait until the OS matures and Nokia releases a WP phone with awesome specs. And I think that people should also give Nokia and WP a chance and not write them off so easily. I'm pretty sure they have something great up their sleeves to come up soon.
