So does anyone know the global sales of the Nokia 920? I've just read the Note2 has reached 5 million sales. Good grief, this is a niche product and has no business achieving such numbers. Absolutely amazing. I couldn't help but think if a Windows Phone 8 device doesn't sell better than the Note 2 then it's gonna be a devastating time for Windows Phone.

Well I definitely see more people using a Note 2 than I do with a Nokia phone period. That's quite discouraging. What the heck is going on. I'm betting if this year is another failure, Nokia starts making a few Android phones.

I contemplated getting a note 2 for a while, but decided to go with Windows Phone after being with android for years. The phone is huge, but the form factor is great. You can be more productive on it than a phone, but have the convenience of a phone. But I needed a change and iOS bores the crap out of me so the Lumia 920 was where I landed and I am very happy!

The Galaxy Note 2 is on multiple carriers. Nokia has no multi-carrier device (though the 810/820/822 are all about the same), while the 8X will likely be skipped over by many on AT&T because it's overall an inferior device (in terms of available software, camera, storage, wireless charging, and--most importantly--PRICE). The best WP device around is limited to one carrier, basically.
Now, that only applies to America, but the 920's exclusive to one carrier in the UK as well. It's going to be tough to reach even 5 million sales for a device only offered on 1 carrier per country (isn't the 920 an exclusive to Rogers in Canada as well?). Basically, the 920 is likely to cannibalize sales from the 8X on its carriers, while even the 822 can do that to people on Verizon. With the Note, the only TRUE competition when it released was Samsung's own Galaxy S III. The One X just couldn't quite compete, and I'm sure there were some such as my sister who vowed to never buy another HTC device after their poor support of the Droid Incredible (one legitimate update in its lifetime?!).

To add to the above, the Note 2 is basically a big Galaxy S 3, one of if not the best selling phone worldwide. And it's running Android, an OS which is mature, and although not my first choice, is actually a good OS.

Why all the hate for the Note 2? It's a fantastic device. That's what I'm coming from. It runs extremely smooth, has awesome battery life, and great hardware. I'm just getting tired of Android, so WP8 is a refreshing change.

I'll be honest and say I somewhat wish I wouldn't have bought my 822 and would have waited for the Note 2. It is a big phone, but it's fairly smooth on jelly bean and it's more mature than WP is at this time.I am enjoying my WP for the most part though.
