    I just picked this up to help me out carrying my 920 around. Going to have it painted gloss white to match!

    Sweet, I'm guessing you went for a yellow 920 to match.

    Did I mention I love this thread?

    I wonder how they are going to facilitate all those web preorders here in Finland... I mean, it's going to be a hassle if you have get one whole truck for one device, and AFAIK preorders are in hundreds. 22nd will be remembered as the most chaotic launch day ever in Finland, I guess.

    The carbon credits needed to offset the emissions from the shipment of the 920's will probably cost into the trillions of euros. The mass of the 920 will lead to the end of the EuroZone!!!

    Well, with such strong preorder pretty much everywhere in Western world, you might as well call it the end of Western civilization as we know it.

    My first phone was 170g and I managed to lift that. But I'm thinking of having a bionic arm fitted anyway.

    Reports are coming in about the disastrous effects of people inadvertently dropping their 920. Just look at the damage:



    Here's a picture taken after a UPS guy threw a package containing a 920 on the front yard of this poor guy:

    Seriously you guys are still going to have trouble handling the Lumia 920 with those things. You need the real deal to manage this piece of awesomeness. Building one of these as we speak to fully cope with the girth that is the Lumia 920.

    BREAKING NEWS: I was at the beach earlier and dropped my Lumia 920 in the water. A Tsunami Warning has since been issued for the entire Eastern seaboard.

    Yeah, a co-worker of mine got his Lumia 920 at Microsoft's build conference. Seriously, it is NOT heavy. It actually feels on par with the Lumia 900. You can balance the phone with one finger if you hold it down the middle. That means the weight is equally distributed through out the phone. Comparing it with my 900, it actually looks slightly thinner too.
    NO WAI BRO

    It's called 920 because it weighs 920 ounces.

    Also it takes blurry pixelated 0.3 mp pictures in daylight.

    Maybe "man the **** up" should be a salespersons statement to potential customers of a phone that weighs almost twice as much as a new iPhone.

    BREAKING NEWS: wpcentral forums user "hasasimo" has just inadvertently revealed himself as Superman by admitting the tsunami warning was of his doing by way of lifting a Lumia 920 off the ground and dropping it into sea. Scientists are still debating as to the physics behind such a feat (it was previously assumed that once a 920 was created that it was a permanent fixture to the earth at the point of manufacture)...and whether we should worry about damage to the tectonic plates of the earth once more of these devices are distributed throughout the world.

    That's the point of the sensitive screen, so you can use it with weight-lifting gloves.
    I wish I could +1 you for that!

    exactly. The difference between the quality of pics of the iPhone 5 and 920 is striking:

    Hmm, I've been working out with 30 pound free weights, and been working overtime for the massive shipping charges that will be incurred when I order it. Think I'll be alright, I have a pharmacist friend that can get me some anabolic steroids if I need them. Put him on speed dial?

    Guys...you think maybe the 920 was a factor in the end of the world prophecy the Mayans had?

    But maybe on the 21st gravity will increase and everyone with a 920 will drop their phone...

    Notice how iPhans are ridiculing features(wireless charging, super sensitive touch, PureMotion HD+) that would be hailed as "revolutionary" if the iPhone had it first.

    I think the combined gravitational forces from the 920s will attract all the asteriods to Earth.

    What do you think is more dense. The 920 or a black hole? Does the 920 contain the higgs boson particle?

    Good theory..that accounts for the delay from release date until the end of the Mayan calendar..it takes a little time for all the asteroids to be flung across the solar system.

    Another possibility is that continued production of the 920 will concentrate enough mass inside distribution warehouses to create a singularity (ie black hole) that will fall through the crust to the core and slowly consume the earth from the inside out.
