    Found a nice summary of some official 900 reviews. This came from a user commenting on Josh Topolsky's negative 900 review on theverge.com

    Engadget
    Nokias Lumia 900 is a steal for consumers looking for dependable performance, ease of use, LTE connectivity, an attractive design and reasonable price.

    CNET
    4/5 Stars
    The Nokia Lumia 900s unique design and high-end features make Windows Phone look fantastic, and the $99 price is extremely fair. Despite some flaws, this is my favorite Windows Phone yet.

    Gizmodo:
    4/5 stars
    The Lumia 900 is a phone that every single person should consider owning.

    BGR
    Nokias Lumia 900 is a terrific smartphone that gives Windows Phone its best shot yet to succeed. The hardware is well-designed and unique, the software is intelligent and smooth, the price is right, and the 4G data speeds along with excellent reception and call quality seal the deal. AT&Ts new flagship phone is not without its faults, of course, but this handset can most certainly go head to head with the best devices on the market when it launches on April 8th.

    Techcrunch
    Its quick, elegant, brings something fresh to the table by way of Windows Phone, and is going for a ridiculously cheap price point.

    Yes they are.

    My take from reading them all:

    Beautiful design, BUT not as beautiful as the Lumia 800
    Beautiful screen BUT with low pixel density
    Great Camera quality BUT only with correct lighting
    Great video quality BUT only 720p
    LTE! BUT not as fast LTE
    Good battery life BUT only for an LTE device
    great sound quality BUT echoes at high volumes
    great operating system BUT immature with many shortcomings

    Great value......

    Josh Topolsky is a grade A a**hole. He has a vendetta against Microsoft and has always been trying to discredit WP7 and Windows in general going back to his days on Engadget. His entire review sounds bitter, and nitpicking just so he could give the phone a bad score. He barely talked about the phone and just started ranting about apps and ecosystem bs.

    He claims to use an Android phone, but don't be fooled because that's just to mask his love for all things Apple. In fact him giving the 900 a bad score means it's probably a really good device.


    edit: sadly a lot of other news sites are using that knob end Josh's review on their sites too.

    I was actually quite surprised to see Josh do the 900 review. Vlad Savov did the 800 review. One would think he would be best suited to review Nokia's next big release. Granted, Vlad is in a different country, but it a large network like the Verge shouldn't have a problem getting products into the right hands (especially considering there is a international 900 being released). Seems like Josh was more concerned about putting his rubber stamp on the 900 review so that the Verge can have an "official" stance on WP7.

    Did anyone see if the reviewers covered audio quality when using headphones? I listen to music a lot and my focus sucks compared to my Zune and iPhone 4 (when I had it).
