    I am seling my Focus on Ebay before all the new Mango phones are announced in Sept. Now I have to use an Android for a couple weeks, and so far it sucks! I have been trying to figure out how to root it, but so far I don't like the Android forum users near as much... I keep seeing quotes like this: "Good luck and read the Effen Manual! If you come to an issue, search first then ask your question if you're not able to find a clear concise answer."

    I am crossing my fingers Nokia won't take forever to release their phones in the US. Is there any idea of a date yet for Nokia to sell a WP in the states?

    While we have no official release dates, it's widely believed that the first Nokia Wp7 devices will be dropping early 2012.

    I believe that the first batch of Nokia devices are shipping in the 4th quarter of this year. Though I don't know if any will make it to the US. But I imagine that we'll see at least one model. Hopefully on all carriers. The bulk of their new devices are coming out next year.

    I've read the 4th quarter of this year a few times.

    From what I have heard I think we will see GSM Nokia phones in the US available before Christmas

    Nokia World is October 26. Hopefully they will give us more info then.

    I have my doubts whether we will see any Nokia WP7 phones this year in the USA, though. They've said they're hoping to have one WP7 device out this year. The thing is, that device is almost certainly the Sea Ray. And supposedly the Sea Ray will not be released in the USA.

    EDIT: I should add, there's still hope that Nokia might sell the Sea Ray online unlocked, like they do with most of their phones. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will be compatible with T-Mobile.

    I would think if Nokia sells an unlocked GSM windows phone before Christmas it would be a quad band like the N8. My wife and I both have N8's. I have AT&T as a carrier and she has T-Mobile as her carrier and they both get 3G.

    Dang, I don't think I can last very ling using this Android as my only phone. I might just pull the trigger and get an HTC or Samsung since they will probably come sooner. Sigh...

    I've had 3 forced app closes just this afternoon.

    Actually the N8 is a pentaband, meaning it works with any GSM and WCDMA network in the world. If I recall correctly, Nokia was a pioneer with those pentaband radios.

    Thanks for the correction, I didn't realize it supported 5 bands. I thought it was just a quadband.

    I would be quite disappointed if there isn't at least one Nokia phone out at the Thanksgiving/Christmas time period
