    I have been trying to decide of I should get the L920 or wait to see what comes next. I like almost everything about it except only 32GB with no expandable memory. I just do not want to get the 920 and have them come out with something that has expandable memory 6 months later. The longer I wait the better I am liking the new Ativ from Samsung. Are there any rumors of a high end phones coming from Nokia? I know there have been rumors of low end phones.

    Why do people ever need more than 32gb? I have never had a phone with more than 16gb and I have never ran out of space...

    It depends on what you have now. If you have something decent, wait it out a bit more. I'm still rocking a Samsung Focus 1 so I'm waaay overdue. :)

    Some people put movies on their phones. I've seen people buy the WI drive for their android devices because 32 GB is not enough.

    How many movies are they putting on their phones? DVD rips scaled down for phone resolutions are like 250-300mb.

    I think some people like to have all of their media accessible on their phones. Personally I have a 16GB iPhone 4 and never felt like I needed more storage. I don't need every song and movie I own at my fingertips at all times, but that's just me.

    I have a Focus 1 with 24 GB and never have any room. I also have a 120GB Zune that is full. I am hoping to be able to put more media on the phone and not have to use the Zune, I am not looking for 120GB phone, but more memory would be great. I have a buddy has only 16GB and never comes close to filling it up. I have tons of CDs that I like to listen to still. I know all people are different, but I have never understood how someone could get away with only 32GB, let alone 16.

    Part of my problem is, I like to have options.

    What if you wait 6 months and nothing different comes out? (the most likely scenario). Then you'll have to wait another 6 months for the next wave of new models.

    Well, it's all about having your stuff in the cloud nowadays so you can get access to a lot of data that's not on your phone.

    Edit: maybe I'm biased as I have about 1TB of music and about 500GB movies and I got used to the fact there's no way this all could fit on a phone.

    No. 700mb is a standard DVD 480p rip. The ones for mobile devices are always compressed to around 300.

    My thought is always to get what you want when you want it. That's what I do and figure out a way to get what comes out next if you want that too.

    But it sounds like you really don't want it so just keep what you have. As far as something new in 6 months with expanded memory. I'd guess there will be less and less offered with that option. Simply because less and less people find it to be necessary.

    I am on the same boat. Just 15 days back I purchased a beautiful white glossy Lumia 900 which I love it, but and now I am skeptical if I should really get a 920.

    New devices have significantly higher resolution than 480p. Why spend the $ to get a phone that displays 720p and not use it.

    You knew about the 920 at the time of your 900 purchase. Why didn't you just wait?

    Because the human eye cannot differentiate the difference on a screen that small.

    The advantage of the 720p on a phone is for UI clarity. It does nothing for things like video.

    I need the space for my music library which is about 100 GB and mostly lossless quality. Obviously I have to sync, remove and add albums for my mobile library selections so I can live with 32 GB but anything less wouldn't work for me. That said I wish there was a 64 GB or SD Card option for the 920.

    Well it seems Motorola decided to leak a development ICS build to Atrix devs, so maybe I'll be holding out a little longer on getting a WP8 for a few months to see how it progresses. I really want one but I have a perfectly good phone right now. Hoping it dies on me soon lol.

    I feel bad for thinking the same about my N8. It's perfectly fine and functioning, but I find myself hoping it to die or some excuses to buy a new phone in general :D That said, I'm getting a 920 anyways most likely as an early adopter, but still :P That said, my N8s battery seems to last noticeably less now than before.... :P

    It's a bit hilarious though how there is not a single word on pricing and availability in Finland. All other nordic countries know the ballpark pricing and availability, we havn't had a SINGLE WORD. Which is ironic seeing that Nokia is finnish and we're still the last to know? I guess one could hope for a surprise that they are available here on the day of WP8 announcement, but I highly doubt it, don't think we'll be seeing any until end of november, if even then..

    Damn you Nokia, give information to us finns! :D

    It helps a great deal when viewing webpages, especially making small text legible.
