    Looks like swype and a few other applications are on the way. Either that or Nokia is false advertising.

    The Lumia 900 look incredible and sounds incredible to boot , where is the best to find apps for this device?

    Thats what I was thinking but they are on the lumia 900 advert. Im hoping Nokia is porting all of them over. I just don't see swype making the jump.

    there should be a nokia section in the same way that samsung and HTC have their own sections in the market.

    i had a focus s, but nokia's apps and the general design are what's getting me to switch.

    the focus s is a great device in its own respect, but nokia is far more comitted to wp7 and have made far more and far more useful apps for their devices.

    Just had to update and say the battery on this phone is phenomenal. The screen is extremely clear and has the most accurate color representation that I have ever seen. I got use to the weight and it feels amazing now. This phone is going to sell and put Nokia on the north American cellphone map.

    Which screen protector did you use? Did you notice it interfering with the screen look at all? And does it feel similar to bare glass?

    I just used a regular screen protector from amazon. I don't know the name but it feels fine. I am not using a case because I ordered the Qubit one and it made the phone to bulky for me. So I am going naked with a zagg full body protector. I actually like the way zagg feels and its pretty tough.

    There is a very annoying delay from the time you push the picture button to when the picture is actually taken.

    Definitely have to do this. Draining to zero and recharging to full condition the battery

    Actually with the new lithium ion battery technology you don't get the memory effect. Instead, you get a finite number of power cycles before degradation starts. Charging your battery before it dies will help preserve your battery. Partial charges, (IE taking it off the charger before it's full) while less practical, is also beneficial.

    Wow, I thought the 900 was supposed to take really quick pictures?

    Try it in a store, I am not satisfied with it.

    It's a two step shutter release. First press halfway to get the focus, reframe if needed and then press all the way to take the actual picture.

    yea even though this is true , I still find the drain and refill actually helps. I know it shouldnt but it does lol. Plus the batterys finite amount of cycles will probably be in the high hundreds if not thousands and by then i will be on a new phone :P

    Does the phone lag, or not. People are saying the phone lags and or is non responsive to touch. Any real life experiences are appreciated.

    all the units I have played with had no lag at all. I can not dispute others experiences but i will say this I have 30 days. I will use those days wisely if the phone fails me ( which i dont believe it will )I will exchange it

    @falconeight -- I played with the camera at the store and didn't find there to be much lag, except you have to remember the two-stage button. Have you found any delay if you press the button partway to focus and then all the way to take the picture? Thanks!

    Ive been using it for 3 days and I find it to have a slow shutter speed. I did come from a galaxy nexus which had a almost instant shutter speed but crappy pics.

    How slow is the shutter. I'm with you on the GNex, as it was instant. How are the pictures? I am hearing mixed reviews

    Can you test whether you can stream audio to bluetooth while playing video (i.e., Netflix or Youtube)?

    Did you know it had two stage camera button like asked previously? Granted i would think you do seeing you own 800.

    I was quite amazed back in N8 days that people where not getting it in USA press. It's been the norm on SE, Nokia and Samsung phones that have camera button for years. Best being Engadget's review where he didn't know N8 had two stage camera button. :D
    Myself don't even see a point of having camera button if it's not two stage.

    Pictures are beautiful but trying to take action shots is a *****.
