    Microsoft OS, no thanks. The last thing we want is to give them marketshare.

    Anyway, 4.3" screen AMOLED screen ? LTE ? Last year called, they want their phone back...;)

    Oh come one now really..... Why because somebody doesn't like a certain product or brand and they don't want to support them????

    And it's probably GSM, too. :(.

    I really REALLY want a Windows Phone 7 Phone (Don't knock it till you try it; IMO it's one of the best OSes out there that all the others could learn from) but Verizon has stated they aren't going to carry any new WP7 phones unless more LTE devices roll out, so all The Big Red gets is the crappy HTC Trophy.

    Waiting on a nice Verizon Windows Phone also. LTE not necessary either.

    Windows Phone is the nicest and smoothest mobile OS there is IMO plus Ive had iOS and Android already so a change would be nice.

    If I wasn't on contract with my iPhone 4, I'd get one of these. They look pretty sweet. I think my next phone will be a Windows Phone.

    What's childish about not wanting a sequel to Microsoft's last OS monopoly ? :rolleyes:

    I lived through the 90s and early 00s, I saw what Microsoft does with control and marketshare. I said no thanks then, I say no thanks now.

    I actually like open standards and interoperability. 2 things Microsoft wasn't about and still isn't (Embrace, Extend, Extinguish, that's what they do).

    But when Apple does it, it's OK? Because iOS is hardly open or interoperable, and Apple's trying to sue their competition out of business.

    Magnificent design. I wish they would release it worldwide though (possibly without LTE). My 3GS is getting near the end of it's life and this or the HTC Titan (1, not 2), would fit the bill perfectly for my next device.

    When did Apple have a OS monopoly that resulted in locking out all other players because of proprietary and closed protocols being made the only compatible technologies out there ?

    Oh right, never.

    And I don't agree with Apple's litigious tactics. But frankly, their success has been rather limited on that front. When they become the next Microsoft, I'll go back to Linux, just like I did in the 90s when I couldn't agree with Microsoft's ways anymore.

    Forgive me, I'm not standing up for either argument, I buy products on a "what I like" basis, but what you have mentioned there is all I see Apple doing nowadays.

    Really ? Maybe I just don't see all this control Apple has over the market really... Apple may push out proprietary stuff that's closed and undocumented, but they are hardly in a position to get adopted enough to matter to others that don't use their software.

    That's the key difference : the monopoly people.

    That looks fantastic.

    I know that Nokia have a vested interest in making WP7 succeed but they have been head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to WP7 hardware.

    Great to see Nokia pushing out some quality hardware.

    I love the hardware, but I'm still not sold on WP7. I'm not a fan of the big, blocky interface. The big tiles just don't do it for me.

    I eagerly await. The only thing that hasn't sold me on WP7 is the lack of a quality Phone.

    If the 900 is built like the N8 then expect a very solid phone. The N8 was one of the best built phone I've used. Very nice look and feel. Nothing at all 'plastic' about it.

    It'll take ages to reach NZ though. Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with the Titan in your opinion? Just too big?

    That thing is gigantic. It's like holding a tablet up to your head or something. Of course, that is assuming that people actually use their phone as, you know, a phone or something. I can't imagine carrying around something like that every day. It makes me wonder where this insane screen size war will end.

    It's not that unwieldy though. It's pretty much the size of a Sensation or Galaxy S2, even though it packs an extra half an inch of display. In fact, it's probably not much bigger than the Lumia 900. It's definitely not like the Samsung Note.

    its got a very nice design. i'd consider it if it were a bit smaller.

    windows mobile os looks good as does this hardware, however it might be too late.

    Ah ok. Fair enough, I guess everyone can draw the line where they want.
