    I agree. I'm not all that familiar with the Android space, but I think the only smallish phone with overall decent specs is the iPhone. Personally, I'd love to see a phone with a 3.8 or 4" 768P screen and the 92X's 8.7MP Pureview with a Quadcore or the highest end dual core Snapdragon. A small, light phone that is a direct iPhone competitor in size with microSD as a big selling point. I wouldn't buy it because I like the larger phone, but millions of 4" devices are sold each year in the form of the iPhone. Is it merely because it's an iPhone? There's some of that, sure. But I'd bet there's a segment of the population that does not want 4.5", 5", 5.5", etc phones. They were used to tiny flip phones and now they're expected to carry a tank?
    I'm totally with you. I don't want a huge phone. Most of the time, my smartphone is just hanging out in my jeans pocket. I don't want to look like I'm trying to fit a tablet in there. I want a 4 to 4.8 inch screen on a really decent phone. I really wish I could get that with the 1020 camera.

    I'm really into the Ativ S specs as it doesn't appear to be a huge screen but has high end features.

    What is the best selling WP as of late? The 1020? Just curious.
    Nope - the 520/521 combo. The low end phone will be the next billion that Nokia has referred to many times, and have already become the best sellers.

    The 822 is a great phone, though. I had one last year on launch day, and my wife now has it (I picked up a 928 on its launch day). As part of the DVLUP program that Nokia has for developers, I ended up with a half a dozen red wireless charging covers, and sold them on ebay, except for one that my wife is now using. Black phone with red charging cover - looks pretty good.

    Right now I'm 12 points away from having enough points on DVLUP to get a free 822, so I'm going to grab that for my step-daughter for Christmas. She had a Sprint Arrive, and it broke (she's hard on phones), and someone gave her a cheapo Android. She HATES the Android with a passion. Since she's switched to Straight Talk in the process, I'll get her the 822 since it is unlocked and will work on Straight Talk.

    Well, that free 822 came today. Here it is in white with a red charging cover.

    My wife is going to take the white one and give her daughter the black one.
