    It was a joke in regards to the waterproof. But having had an android, I will not have another.

    I got the Nokia-branded soft black thin case both for the 900 and now the 920. It adds almost no bulk, doesn't alter the aesthetic of the device, gives excellent grip (probably the most important part), and provides a little more protection for the camera lens. Lumias are not for underwater use, but they are the toughest build I've ever seen on a touch-screen phone, at least on the 900 and 920.

    With all the rugged phones coming out now and with the rumor of the extremely hyped Moto X being rugged if WP8 wants to be taken seriously long term and get into the business market it's going to need a rugged phone.

    Nah I'm talking a phone that can withstand water or even drops out of the box no case required. What's the pint of buying a new phone when it can mess up at the slightest mistake, then you buy expensive cases for it. Might as well bought an iPhone.

    That's exactly what I am saying. Its needs a rugged (kyocera torque or cat b15) or semi rugged (xperia z and s4 active) phone to differentiate. Yeah you can have a new Windows phone but it has the sane features as the last 50 of them. Some rugged features will make it stand out and more attractive to more people.

    Yup. Each Android phone is different in some way because its open source, IR, rugged and the fancy swiping over the screen on the S4. All the WP8 are the same thing just a different design and color, features are all the sane. People like being able to say 'my phone is a quad core' or 'mine can go underwater'. In reality they will never come close to needing all 4 cores on a phone but its a selling/bragging point. WP8 needs that selling/bragging point, it's not going to happen in the software dept because all the software on all the phones are the same so it needs to happen in hardware.
