Yeah, I know most of us haven't seen it in person let alone play with it. But just purely based on looking at the detailed specs, what would you change in Lumia 900? In other words, what were you expecting in your "imaginary" dream device Ace? better camera? more ram? bigger/smaller screen? more exclusive apps?
for me, two things - rest everything is just perfect.
1) 32 GB
2) why did they remove curved glass? Instead it is flat now. I havent held the 800 either. but looking at the reviews of the 800, curved glass was awesome in looks as well as navigation/gestures.
Software-wise, I'm not yet qualified to talk as this is going to be my first WP7 device, and I cant wait.

I would love to see a gig of ram. The single core processor is all that is needed for Windows Phone as it runs very efficiently but I have to say that the graphics on the games for Windows Phone are a little lackluster compared to other mobile OS's. A dual core processor could help with that a bit. Also, I would have loved to see the screen res bumped up a little for the 900. (OS restrictions aside)
I think Nokia has a real winner with the 900 and either this of the Galaxy Note will be my next phone. I am leaning toward the Nokia though as I love Windows Phone but the Note's gigantic screen and sheer power are tempting!

I understand all these specs about RAM and screen-res, but Nokia has no control over that. Microsoft determines all of that.
I think I will be OK with 16 GB since a lot of services are cloud and streaming based. Personally, all my music is streamed (Spotify) and video is likely to be coming from Netflix, and maybe an occasional movie rental from Zune.
The curved glass would have been nice, but I think they were restricted because of the size of the glass, and possibly had to go to traditional.
If I really had to be picky, I would have wanted NFC so I could use the Play 360 speakers Nokia released along with the N9. I think you can still pair the 360 with the standard BT pairing steps, but the NFC opens that process and new possibilities up. But I am being really picky, it is definitely not a deal breaker. Eager for a concrete release date so I can preorder!

2. More color choices, this is easy and I'm hoping for more to come out later on.
3. Curved glass, was really wanting this.
4. Bigger screen, 4.5" at least.
Everything else is out of their control on my wish list, waiting for the next major OS upgrade and then see what I want, I assume a lot of what others have mentioned is coming and I can't wait!

1) 1 GB of RAM (512 is a minimum spec, but MS allows more)
I want this so I could load big web pages with tons of large pictures better. Like for 3D art threads in game dev forums.
2) 4.5" screen.
3). 32 GB storage option (which may be coming in the future anyway)

Obviously, better screen res, better processor would have been nice, but since that's restricted by wp7, i'll say:
curved glass, memory options (16/32/64)
BTW I know everyone says wp7 doesn't need a better processor, and that's probably true in the os, but in games and apps I would assume it could only help...

The 32GB Option is all thats really missing based on the current WP Specs availible to manufacturers. A refresh of the device will bring the 32GB option later in the year most likely.
A better Low Light Front Facing Camera would also be greatly appreciated. I rarely use the FFC for anything other than the occational Social Media Avatar, but it would be nice to have the option of actually using the FFC in normal lighting conditions rather than Noon in the Summer Outside lighting conditions.

thanks for hsaring your thoughts. I did forget one thing - Skype. But again, thats more of Software issue than hardware specs.
May be in future releases we might see Gorilla 2?
Another big question - can anyone answer this? Since MS didnt make any specific change for LTE (since it was apparently part of the existing build), and Lumia 800 will be sold as unlocked optimized for AT&T, can we make use of LTE in 800? or the hardware just doesnt have the radio to support it?

Curve glass?? that sounds horrible for gaming.
im very happy with it.
and the screen is UGE ( bigger then any WP right now i think ) **** it looked like a tablet in the vid ( unless that girl had really small hands )
to expect more is to expect a different model/ OS that support the extras.(res,duel-core, memory ect.. )

1: Higher res screen would be nice but is not a deal breaker as the Galaxy S2 looks good as is.
2: Better GPU would have been good as well, something at Adreno 220-225 level, this would have brought with it a dual core CPU as I dont think there's anything single core with that advanced a GPU. Realise that the second core would go unused on current OS though. GPU still more important in my mind.
3: LTE via SoC would have been better than the seperate chip soution they've gone for but that'll be due to constraints.
4: Nokia N8 camera.
5: Metal anodized body
