Mind-numbingly silly pedantry and non-arguments from Brmiller in this thread, my gosh. Stop trying to make points where there clearly are none - Nokia not all-in, Thurrott somehow not being a believer until now.
Rubbish. Nokia's roadmap is Windows Phone. Samsung's and HTC's aren't. Paul has used Windows Phone for ages. If he didn't think it was the best, why would he use it and why would he compliment the 900 in such a manner? And no, don't say it's because he's a Microsoftie. He likes the iPad and Kindle and has used / uses them extensively.

To say HTC at least are not is stupid for example where was Nokia when WP first got released ? HTC was their at the beginning and the new HTC WP8 devices are not rehashes of their android devices but rather brand new designs.

That's why audiophiles prefer high-end audio equipment to present the music as pure as possible. Any equipment that adds a preset EQ is - BY DEFINITION - damaging the original recording.

I listen to music EXTENSIVELY on the car ride to and from work (aux input), and then on ear buds at work.
There was no appreciable difference between the last-gen HTC and the last-gen Nokia. I didn't have to adjust volumes. If your intention is to use it as some sort of public boombox or station to DJ from...dunno what to tell you. Perhaps a laptop or Surface would be a better purchase?

I wonder what people will say if the 920 sells more than the 8x? At the moment Nokia has sold the most Windows phone and have brought more apps to windows phone than any other OEM. Who ever said Nokia is not all in has no clue of what they are talking about.
If you think wireless charging is a gimmick, then why is it going to be in the Verizon version of the 8x? Did they want a gimmick too? LOL Also wireless charging is not slow. A few reviewers have said that after an hour their lumia was at 50%-56% charged. My lumia 900 takes 2 hours to charge...seems to be right on par with that. Wireless charging has HUGE potential...it has to start some where and i'm glad Nokia and HTC are having them built in to the phone rather than being an optional cover that most may never use...even better that Nokia and ATT are giving you a charging plate to push it even more.

"The Nokia Lumia 900 has it all: Beauty, brains, and brawn. But is it enough to upset the balance of the smart phone industry and establish a viable third platform? I hope so, because if this fails, there’s nowhere to turn. There simply isn’t a nicer smart phone in the market."
"So, the Lumia 900 is fantastic. Best of breed. Beauty and powerful. And Windows Phone is fantastic. What’s the problem?"
"And we’ll see. I have a good feeling about this one. I think it’s going to win some converts. Do I think it will turn around Windows Phone once and for all? Baby steps, people, baby steps.
Having the single best smart phone on the market certainly changes things though. "
And that's just from day 8 of lumia use report :P

Q4 2010 Smartphone market share:
Q1 2011 Smartphone market share:
After the WP announcement it was all downward spiral. The leaked burning platform memo really finished the deal.
