    And I have to say the weight issue with the 920 has to be the most ridiculously overblown tech squabble I have heard in a very very very long time.

    It barely felt heavier than my iPhone 3GS. Perhaps it is because it's taller/wider so the weight is more distributed, but either way, man the **** up people.

    Interesting, so some stores already have it? I read they wouldn't be getting their stock until tomorrow or Friday. You're in Iowa?

    You can't buy it. They just have one for display.

    So AT&T stores have a working version of the 920 on display? if so i work at rockerfella center, theres an AT&T store downstairs in the plaza, i will definitely run down within the hour and check it out.

    Not really sure if this was suppose to be for display, or if it was one they had for training and then just put it out.

    Nice. I'm going to call around now and see if any of my local stores have any. As of yesterday they didn't.

    I always knew it.

    It's sad how people can go around spreading their crap and poison like nothing.

    That's the point of the sensitive screen, so you can use it with weight-lifting gloves.

    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.

    I don't have the specs on hand, but I do remember the 920 is some small fraction of a mm thinner than the 900.

    Doesn't picking up a 920 count as lifting?

    Seriously. And from what I heard they won't bring it all the way to the door due to injury liablities...curb delivery off the liftgate only.

    I just held one also one and agree that weight isn't an issue. Looks are however, and imo the 920 and 900 are by far the ugliest phones in the at&t lineup. Simply hideous and about as far from elegant as one could get. Also, not impressed with the feel of the 8x. Looks awesome but something felt amiss.

    Man, I can't find the video clip of the Futurama episode called "The Why of Fry" where Fry is attempting to pick up Nibbler's anti-matter poop. It weighs as much as a thousand suns.

    Great parallel to how the UPS man or woman will be acting trying to deliver our phones to our doors...
