    I find myself very antsy and wanting a WP7 NOW NOW NOW! But I realize that the Nokia phone is likely to be the one that 'hits the spot" more then a Samsung or HTC. Who else is going to be STRONG like me and wait another month?

    I'd like to find a replacement for my Nokia N8. I am not a big Symbian fan. I may have to wait until 2012, but that's ok.

    i had that same feeling of now now now now, so I hit up eBay for the HTC Arrive, but it was the perfect fit since I'm on Sprint and I wanted a physical keyboard

    What I want is a Nokia SeaRay with HSPA on Verizon! That will really hit the spot for me.

    Hopefully the SeaRay will drop to $80 prepaid in a year, I might get it then.

    Verizon is cdma and lte, HSPA is AT&T. I'm hoping for a Nokia on Verizon myself.

    It would be a bold face lie, if I said I was patiently waiting for any Nokia WP7 device, cause that is not the case. I want my Nokia like yesterday!!!

    I'm waiting, but depending on what is shown tomorrow with ICS I will probably dump my Arrive and go back to my Nexus S 4G when it becomes available. I'm looking for two things:

    1. Fully hardware accelerated UI in Ice Cream (the biggest reason I left Android, on top of fragmentation)
    2. Better battery life

    If these two things are highlighted/shown I will switch my line from my Arrive back to my Nexus (when the update is available). It will be hard because I like Windows Phone so much (being able to use hands-free in the car is my favorite feature because it is smoother and easier to use than Android), but Microsoft's lack of attention to Windows Phone is making me feel like the old days with my Pre.

    Yes, right now is the wrong time to try and hype Windows Phone (maybe?) because of iPhone 4s hype and ICS and Nexus Prime hype. However, it still doesn't stop them from doing the small things to improve Windows Phone in the meantime, such as updating their own apps (really just ports....such as Angry Birds for background running and 60 FPS or Fruit Ninja for background running and 60 FPS). The fact that they haven't even updated THEIR OWN APPS (let alone they probably haven't even pushed for other developers to update their apps to Mango) makes me feel uncertain about the platform. Heck, with all the money they have they could simply contact all the developers for say like the top 100 apps in the marketplace and promote them to update them to include like what...3 or 4 lines of Mango code for a sum of money. Just the fact that they're sitting "satisfied" after releasing Mango kinda ticks me off...

    It just feels like Windows Phone is a pet project for them to see if they can compete in the mobile wars. If they lose it'll be like "meh...we tried" and they'll move on with their other projects and the integration they're preparing for between XBox, Windows 8, etc...

    I between the Nokia SeaRay or the iPhone 4S. Really really want Nokia to make a innovative device.

    I'm a little dissapointed with Nokia after the N8. Don't know how I as able to hold onto it for so long (a year now). I desperately need another phone but I'm reluctant to go with iPhone and Android isn't an option for me.

    I've had tons of Nokia phones as that's all you could ever get here at one time until Sony Ericsson stuck their nose in.

    My last Nokia was the N95. (Loved it, but it was a bit of a brick)



    My Omnia 7 beats the pants out of anything I've had so far of course. :)

    Have never really like Nokia styling. I will pick up a Titan but I am not very patient. My family has gotten their 4s phones and getting incredible HSPA speeds while I am still getting dial up speeds. :(

    My first Nokia was the N8. I also bought one for my wife, so I actually have two. It's been a great phone, zero problems. The camera and Nokia maps are outstanding. Once a comparable Nokia Win7 phone comes out, I'll get it. I am not a big Symbian3 fan, but it works.

    Not patiently but I AM waiting, if the sea comes out in europe with pentaband, I will import that. If it dosnt have pentaband I guess I will have to wait for the ace next year, but it will be hard considering I want WP NOW so I may be tempted by titan and focus S... Currently I have a GS2 and its a great phone, just that wp7 is so damn good....and that sea ray in particular is just wow! Design wise for me. Please announce some good stuff for Nokia World!! A sea ray for US this year would be amazing, doubtful though...

    I've got a chance to get a very cheap Samsung Omnia 7, but I too will wait for an announcement from Nokia World on 26 October.

    Living in Europe I'm hoping I will see the new Nokias before you US guys!
