    You may want to hold off on getting the Titan on the 20th. I was going to get the Focus S, but I'm definitely waiting now:

    Saw that, and made the decision to sit tight. Makes it easier to do that on my Focus for a few months and wait it out.

    Awesome! A vague Q1 timeline is now narrowed down to January. :) Paul Thurrot actually reported the CES Nokia launch a week ago on Windows Weekly.

    Maybe time to start considering a move to att, tmobile in particular seems uninterested in WP7. Contract is up Dec 15, so CES will definitely be a big factor.

    Man I was all set to ditch sprint and grab a titan myself but I think im going to wait this out too. The titan is sexy but i really really want a high end Nokia. Its only two more months but still seems a long ways away!

    AT&T has definitely been Windows Phones best American supporter. Tmo has a long relationship with Nokia, so you may well see some nice phones there as well.

    hope so because at this point I'm stuck with t-mo for a while longer now so they better be getting some more good WP7 phones!

    They will announce their 2012 lineup at CES. I really doubt they will be released at that time. Possible but doubtful. My guess is a spring launch or like 4-5 months from now. Would be nice but I am not waiting. No leaked images or anything of the 2012 phones makes me a bit pessimistic of anything launching in January.

    WindowsPhoneMetro.com is saying that the Nokia US phone is rumored to have a front facing camera.

    I spoke yesterday to an inside (usually pretty reliable) source here in Europe who told me that T-Mo USA plans to offer "at least one Nokia Windows Phone". The "at least" part leaves open the possibility that there may be more than one. But there may not be, either. He wouldn't elaborate, though... it was hard enough trying to coax the info out of him that I got.

    Fingers crossed for you T-Mo customers over there in the States.

    That would be the 710 that recently passed the FCC with Tmo AWS bands. Not sure i'll be beating down their door to get that.

    I can't wait! I went to Verizon today to check out the Droid Razr, and although the hardware is actually very nice, I just can't go back to Android. I can't wait to kick T-Mo to the curb for AT&T or Verizon. Nokia, all I'm waiting on is you! I'll be there on launch day!

    yeppers... nice phone but, if that's the best that T-mo can come up with I'll stick with my DVP.

    It would all depend on if the carrier announces a release date within a month. For instance, a month after CES this past year, AT&T released the Atrix and the Inspire 4G. Those both were pretty groundbreaking phones for AT&T at the time. And it seems like lately AT&T is on board for a bunch of releases. Apparently they just announced another Android phone, the LG Optimus LTE for their network.

    I'm really resting all my hopes on Nokia to bring out a WP7 device with a premium chassis. The recent crop all have at least one major flaw that turns me off.

    Focus Flash: 8GB storage
    Focus S: Cheap feel and crappy back plate. Also a bit big for my taste.
    Titan: Too big (but probably the best WP7 out there if you don't mind the size)
    Lumia 800: No FCC
    Lumia 710: Ugly design
    HTC Radar: Dumb looking bottom half

    And the handful of unreleased phones that have been announced don't look too impressive either. If the 800 had a FFC that would literally be the perfect phone for me.

    I agree that every phone announced/released has one major flaw, but a couple of my flaws are different
    Focus Flash: 8 Gigs of storage, lower quality Camera
    Focus S: Too big, feels like a cheap toy
    Titan: Way too damn big
    Lumia 800: Poor photo quality (no FFC is no big deal to me, I don't use them when I have them)
    Lumia 710: All the 800's flaws, in a less attractive body with a worse screen
    HTC Radar: 8 gigs of storage. Lower quality camera
    If the Lumia 800, Focus Flash, or Radar had better camera quality and higher storage, they would be winning as far as I'm concerned. LTE support would be a big, big plus to me as I don't feel now is a good time to lock into a two year contract on a phone lacking the next gen wireless tech.

    There's a strong chance that Nokia will release their new stuff shortly after showing it at CES. It seems like they're bringing out the Lumia line everywhere right after debuting it.

    I believe that a FFC is a necessity. You don't skimp out on features on a "premium" phone. I rarely use the FFC, but when I do I'm glad I have it. Plus as more apps start to take advantage of a FFC (skype anyone?) you'll be glad you have it. For Nokia to leave it out is just plain stupid on their part as it's a deal breaker for me.

    If you're a Costco (USA) member, you can have the best of both worlds.

    Costco will have the Titan and they allow 90 days for cellphone returns. I plan to take the Titan to Nokia's CES booth to see what they'll have.

    That's pretty nice Too bad there's not a Costco near me.
