New Nokia Lumia - I want - Page 2

post #16 of 54
Depending on pricing and availability I'm thinking of a 800/820/920 somwhere around the end of the year. Also in light of its looks.

Thread Starter 
availability is November. they announced a bunch of European dates/prices today.

Pricing will be a bit lower than iphone based on comparisons in Europe.

Awesome! This is the phone I'm eagerly awaiting...

I'm pretty excited about Windows 8 and the tablet/phone integration, if for no other reason than C# is a much nicer language than objective C or Java. But what I'm really hoping for is that open webOS takes off and we see more open source competition for Android. Android is ugly and slow and click-happy. WebOS is pretty and responsive and gesture-happy. But Android has Google.

This is cool. My phone is a GPS second only to the actual phone, and I hate waiting for maps to download.

Ugh. Too friggin' big, like every other phone on the market. And does the gloves claim mean that the screen is resistive instead of capacitive? I hope not.

I loved WebOS, but it's time to let the dream go. Open or not, it's a dead platform.

RIMM is going to make a comeback. Just putting it out there.

I'm looking into the porting libraries to see how big a deal it is to compile for different devices. I'd be perfectly happy with a Cyanogenmod-esque team that releases Open webOS ROMs for Android devices. Or, better yet, for companies to start building platform-independent hardware that plays well with other operating systems. But I dream...

Still no formal pricing or an exact date. I don't understand what they are waiting for. Get this done and start taking preorders.

That sucks, I was really hoping Verizon (or T-mobile) would carry this.

It sounds to be most of what I want in a phone.

A key feature I'm missing in WP (when reading about it online) is an orientation lock, especially for the browser. It's not often used but I like to at least be able to read on my phone, when lying down.

for any of you Amurrikans interested in this phone, rumor is that Amazon will be selling it unlocked for $400 during December.

Awesome, if this is true....

I handled it yesterday and really like it, especially the screen.

The os is eh, nothing supper pretty but I might be able to live with it.

I am really thinking of getting this, The camera is the only thing I am worried about. Hopefully it's as good if not better than the iPhone 5's camera. (What I currently have)
