    I'd be lying if I said the SD card slot was an issue for me or even the replaceable battery.

    I have had the iPhone 4S since launch in October of last year, bought a 64gb and haven't even come close to 32gb.

    I also have a Galaxy S3 with 16gb on board and 32gb sd card that I don't even have the internal filled up yet.

    I have an extra battery for my GS3, but I have yet to take it out the packaging to use it. It's annoying to replace a battery. I'd rather find a charge.

    I agree with you but I want to mention something about removable battery that helped me. On my Samsung Focus, the USB connection stopped working about a month ago. But I kept the phone because I am waiting for the Lumia. So what I did was, I bought a new battery and a battery charger. Now I keep one battery on charge while I use the other.

    Just trying to say that once in a while these not so important features help you out. Can't wait to get Lumia 920 though. It has wireless charging anyway. :D

    I actually feel let down that they didn't put out a PMP to compete with iPod Touch.

    I'd say the fact that they didn't show off more of window's phone 8 and for me personally the fact that none or them coming to sprint is a real tear jerker :'(

    Sprint seems not interested at all in WP8.

    The BIGGEST LETDOWN for me is the fact that the Lumia 920 will most likely not launch on T-Mobile's network. That means no 920 for me. Whoopee.

    Even the almighty iTouch is suffering in the sales department. Not much call for phone-sized consumption devices... People just use their phone. Nokia is already hurting. They don't need to be making devices that just won't sell.

    Lodingi,

    It does seem as though the 920 is an AT&T exclusive initially, but that won't last forever, so if you're anxious for it, maybe hold off until spring to see what's announced.

    In the mean time, Verizon is expected to get "multiple" Windows Phones this fall, so I think that's suggesting Ativ, Accord, and 820. The 820 isn't a bad phone at all... the display is rather lackluster (compared to 920) and it lacks PureView camera, but it stands out for SD card storage, replaceable battery/back covers, so it's not a terrible way to go.

    And BTW, we're still waiting on HTC, obviously, and they're claiming they have some BIG announcements coming.
    Sadly, it's the 920 or nothing for me. Not interested in anything Samsung.

    This merely a suggestion, but it would be nice if the apps (in camera view) were transparent.

    I was hoping for smaller phone. 4.3 in a shorter and thinner case would be ideal for me.

    Defintely giving it some thought. If I can deal with the thickness/weight of the Dell Venue Pro, I'm thinking I'll be fine with the 920.

    I really wish they would have an SD card slot or more memory. I currently have 24 GB in my Samsung Focus and have it all filled. I was hoping to not need to carry my 120GB Zune any more. I have a lot of music and have a Zune Pass. I like having lots of music to choose from. I would not need 120GB, but more then 32GB. My ideal would be 64GB, and a SD card slot. I really want a Nokia, I may go with the Samsung Ativ. I bought my mother a Nokia 900 and really love the feel, look and extras of that phone. Plus with the additions in the 920, Nokia just seems like the way to go. However, lack of memory is a problem.

    I would like a removable battery, but that is not a deal breaker. I carry a USB charger when traveling. The one thing I wanted a removable battery for is, if the phone stops holding a charge, you can easily replace the battery and are good to go. This has happened in a phone for both my wife and daughter. In a addition I have had several devices (non phone) stop holding a charge way to soon.

    Are you kidding me? What sort of random hodgepodge of music do you listen to? I have like 10 thousand heavy metal songs across dozens and dozens of artists and I can put at least 10 gigs of it on at any given time and I rotate the music every couple of days. It's not a big issue man.

    I can't even see a point to Zune Pass, 90% of heavy metal bands are barely present on zune. There is little to no representation except from the big names. If I wanted to listen to hipster bs all day I could tune in to a local radio station.

    But I digress, I'm in Canada, so I can't afford the data plan required to be able to use zune pass.

    Am I the only one that still uses the FM radio? Unless one can be added to the 920 via third party app, ala N9, no FM is a deal breaker for me. Compatibility with wma audio books which WP7 phones won't play is another issue. WP phones will play mp3 audio books, but the selection is next to zip compared to wma audio books. Just for the record I have a Nokia N8 and I found an inexpensive used Focus S (forced up to tango) to try out the WP7. I really do love the WP7 os over the aging symbian, but I find myself going back to the N8 because of the hardware. Oh ya, the reason I went with the Focus S and not an L900 is because the Focus isn't a micro sim, otherwise I would have jumped on a used L900.

    Not the biggest let down but have you guys noticed that they added that same bezel (rubber/plastic?) around the screen from the 900. I thought it was going to be "seamless" like the 800...

    I will be holding off at least until spring 2013, since I'm in contract. Maybe they'll have a cyan device by then, like the L900 just recently got the pink device.

    I agree with you. I don't have a need for an SD card, since I put my music in SkyDrive and stream it.

    I sure as heck don't miss the battery pulls I had to do when I had BlackBerry.

    I have LTE here, and I consistently have 40-60% battery left after 12-16 hours of use, so the replaceable battery is a non-issue for me.

    Probably size. Would have loved to have it at 4.3", especially since the unibody design is naturally larger (it is the same size as the 4.7" One X).

    I listen to a lot of different music. I use Zune pass to discover new bands. For a long time I only listened to old heavy metal (Exciter, Anthrax, Megadeth, Moterhead). I have found many new artist that I really like (Halestorm, Finger 11, Seether). I also listen to a lot of non heavy metal (Queen, Queensryche, AC/DC). I have over 200GB of music. A lot of it I have been re-ripping as lossless. I like to have choices. I do not rotate my music much. Who knows when I am going to be in the mood for Krokus, Nazareth, Ozzy, or Pink Floyd. I also rip full albums.

    Interesting you mention that. I missed having a notification light when I switched from Winmo to WP7 (Samsung Focus).

    I just wish we could have a phone by Nokia obviously as i'm sticking with them till the end, that had more than 32GB of memory. Even if they added expandable memory. I liked the *20 too it seems pretty sweet, and i was leaning towards it just for the expandable memory, but it can only go up to 32GB anyway??? I love the 920, everything about it, i just wanna have everything with me in one device, you know? Unreal phone i am hoping to grab one anyways, just for the next Flagship phone Nokia pleasee let us have the ability to have expandable memory with no cap. :) even 64GB would due. Hopefully the 32GB will do.

    Dragonforce, Sabaton, some Edguy, etc. I'm a Power Metal guy and they get pretty decent representation on there. I also listen to pop music like Nicki Minaj, hard rock like Shinedown, soundtrack music like the Pikachu's Goodbye theme from Pokmon, unknown genre music like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (kudos to Nokia for finding them out).

    I can't even see a point to Zune Pass, 90% of heavy metal bands are barely present on zune. There is little to no representation except from the big names. If I wanted to listen to hipster bs all day I could tune in to a local radio station.
    I also listen to the radio, and like I say, I find the ZMP suits my varied tastes really well.
