No idea but whoever makes them has a YouTube channel though

I'm betting it's all a matter of perspective. Compared to the tiny little drivers & amps in most "portable ipod speakers", I would bet those systems sound very fun.

Also in a sense, megapixels do equal quality. It's just all in the execution. The N8 proved that 12MP is doable. The 808 proved that 41MP in a relatively small form is doable. And now Nokia extends the lead, yet again, in phone imaging capability with the Lumia 920, marketing blunder notwithstanding. Sure this time it isn't the OMGhuge sensor used in the 808, but they did something else with it. What else did Apple did other than using sapphire crystal to make the lens and naming them iSight?
So true, Apple isn't really innovating anymore (well... did they ever? I TOO CAN PLAY FANBOY) with the iPhone 5, and since 4S, IMO.
/fanboy

Just saying I have never seen a nokia with a broken screen........... And Nokia has this sort of magical power to never break (have no idea how it works I mean it still uses gorilla glass and such)

I too would love a nokia, if only it ran android or the Now defunct meego ^^

The reading of the last five pages, while listening to Al Green & Anne Akiko Meyers, left me feeling a bit reflective.

I've been considering an old Nokia+ tablet combo.

 

Now Nexus 7 or a rommed Kindle Fire HD? hmmmm

Haha. Luckily that seagull (or gull; I once read some arguments about the name or some such. Maybe it's a different animal) dropped it somewhere safe.

Mr Barnatt is one good dancer. I just kind of wished he had more moves ...

What got me going "**** YEAH AAWESOME" is how smooth the transition between the scenes are. I always have a fit seeing that. Just too mind blowing for me LOL. The song and the dance just enhance that.

If the 808 didn't come out, I would've gotten the N9. But then that's just another dead-end OS on my hand instead LOL. I'm somewhat leery on the Nokia + Android thing, but if anything it could work-ish. I don't know, I don't particularly like, nor dislike Android though.

Old Nokia + tablet combo could work; then it would be based on what you're going to do with the tablet. My planned setup would be a tether-capable smartphone and a WiFi only tablet, but that sounds like too much overlap and redundancy.

That's what I'm thinking. I've had enough sleepless nights waiting for roms on my Thunderbolt, no reason to get another device to worry about :P

That's another very good option. I'm still on unlimited data with Verizon, so a very good idea indeed ;D

I wanted an N9 but I already had an Galaxy  at that time and would have been a waste of money ^^ quite sad though the N9 was fluid and quick

What I really like about Nokias phones (apart from being finnish lol) is that they're at least trying to go their own way. In a world where you can barely distinguish an Android from another Android or an iPhone because they all seem to copy eachother, you get this:

 

Pretty unique. So, refreshing to see. Now, I haven't tried the windows 8 phone (or whatever it's called) but I tried the last lumia with mango, and what a design. What an experience.

 

Technically speaking, I don't know which would be the better phone out of say galaxy iii, iphone 5 and lumia 920. But I'll tell that there's only one of them that makes me genuinely happy to look at, and that's the lumia. Also, this may be redundant since you already think that I'm a nokia fanboy (I've own one, back in '94) - but lumia 920 may very well be my next phone.

 

Last but not least, if and when I do get my windows 8 phone, I'll start developing apps for it.

That indeed it is. Back in my summer break in Malaysia, I would always make sure to go to a Nokia store and just scroll through the N9 for kicks. And the Swipe UI /navigation concept is just the next thing IMO. All very fluid. Although since it is now pretty much established that buttons = do stuff, that's hard to break.

I was confused why you comment on them being Finnish, but then I see where you're from. tongue.gif

I'd say that if one were to look only into the apps ecosystem, the iPhone 5 would've been the clear winner of the virtue of more quality apps. I'm not saying that Android and WP lacks quality, just that mobile devs seem to crown to Apple's iOS. I don't know on the programming language side, but I do see how the lone iPhone model is easier to develop for than the myriads of Android models and the same-but-not WP ...phones. tongue.gif

But hardware wise, it's a toss up I agree.

But really if Nokia reacted to the iPhone with what they're doing now 5 years ago, I don't think they would've be floundering (directions wise, not financially (I hope tongue.gif)) like they are right now.

Curious, but what phone are you using right now?

Actually, I'm even born in Finland, or as they say: Winland. biggrin.gif

 

I think, to be honest, that Nokia has been in an economic crisis, and still are in somewhat bad shape. I remember their CEO making remarks about using Android is like pissing in the snow, or something like that. The thing is that they haven't flourished quite like the other mobile giants, and I think a major part is the lack of Android. While the other giants were thriving and selling phones to the left and right, Nokia were still experimenting with Sybians, Linux and whatnot. They've always made pretty and quality phones, but with the lack of Android, or some other big system, they just haven't been right on the inside, so to say. Code wise, that is.

 

Now, with Windows 8 I think that might change. I think it might mean that the ecosystem of Windows might actually grow. I can see a reason to buy a windows 8 phone, being that your tablet is windows 8 and desktop being it too. Who knows .. we'll just have to wait and see. As for apps, I'm not dependant on them - I want my phone to be a smartphone/PDA yes, but I can live without the thousands of games and fart machines that are out there now.

 

The Lumia 920 is quite unique and shows that Nokia is actually trying to do something new. I'm getting so tired of the usual Android/iPhone clones, so seeing what Nokia does now is not only refreshing, but also kind of stylish.

 

My phone right now is a feature phone. I had a cheap ZTE Android phone earlier until the screen broke, so I have to use my crappy feature phone until I buy something new. It works for calling though (though SMS is quite a hassle..), so no stress.
