    Well like the title says i bought an iPhone 5 for myself and couple of 4S to family members and to tell you the truth i fail to see the difference, i am seriously thinking of making the switch to the lumia, I like the innovation with the display, touchscreen and camera basically they covered all the things the consumers needed, the only thing that bothers me is the glossy back i want the matte models, but so far we dont know if AT&T is coming out with it.

    I am really concerned with the surface RT version, because I dont know how many apps will work on it on release, now dont get me wrong I ordered it but may cancel to wait for something more useful, I would like to have both my phone and tablet running windows 8 as well as my PC that makes the best integration, but the RT maybe too limited, since x86 apps wont work on it I believe, how about phone apps? will the RT have access to the 100k apps on WP8? or less than 100 apps available.

    I have the iPhone 5 and while I do enjoy using it, I honestly can't wait to get the Lumia 920. The device being smaller and lighter is a plus, but in all honesty, I could care less about that stuff. I have the Lumia 900 and I honestly don't really think about the difference until I have both in my hands.

    Just my opinion...

    After holding my wife's iPhone 5, I can't wait for the 920. Of course my personal preference is to have heavier things. My wedding band is a heavy tungsten, my watch is all metal with a nice weight, I carry a pocket knife with my keys just so I can "feel" them. I'm buying the 920 because of the weight and size (other features are a plus too). I just like to know where my stuff is - and that I can crush a zombies skull if I need to :)

    Well the weight is nice the 4S had a nice heft, but the 5 I think is a little too light, and well I dont see any improvements compared to what I see on the Lumia 920.

    You've just bought an iPhone 5 for yourself, 4S' for your family, are considering now buying yourself a Lumia 920 and have a preorder for the Surface... Are you made of money?! lol.

    For your question about the marketplace, it surpassed 5,000 apps the other day, not a huge amount, but it'll grow quickly. I doubt WP7 apps will work on Windows RT, but nothing official has been said about it.

    Sorry if it came out wrong, that is indeed what I'm saying too, cos it felt some people are saying that only cyan would be matte.

    (Damnit, I keep typoing "matter" all the time)

    Yep, forgive me, my ability to read and understand sentences can be somewhat limited at times!

    From seeing that picture, my interesting in the black matte version has gone up a lot, it looks gorgeous!

    I agree that I don't think WP7 apps will work on the RT Surface, but I did pre-order one so I'll let you know what sort of app selection I'm seeing on the 26th when I get it! :-)

    Getting the Lumia 920 a couple weeks after that (knock on wood...) is gonna make for an intense couple weeks for me! :-D

    100 apps is what you see if you have Windows 8 developer preview installed there is now 5000 apps for Win RT

    Returned my iPhone 5 and sold my galaxy s3 and bought a Lumia 900 and am very happy. Will get the white 920 on release day and will be even happier. Don't miss IOS or Android at all. A few of IOS games yes, but hopefully with wp8 they will get ported over

    not made of money but I would sell my iPhone 5 if that and use that money for it I got the 32 gb version of the iPhone 5 making it easier to sell and get the amount for the Lumia 920 out right. and well I have a nexus 7 pre sold which that will cover some of the costs of my surface, yet still wondering if I would get the surface, I am not sure is the best decision, I am concern with Utility since not many apps will work on it.

    100k means 100,000 apps :P not 100 but I see it is supposed to be 100k by years end.

    you know in IOS i have 3 games and I only play one haha, a couple of social network apps, like facebook, twitter mostly, instagram sometimes, keek, and banking apps, amazon, ebay, youtube and the browser, thats about it, nothing else I wonder if the Lumia 920 will have something like iMovie which I was planning to use, let me know if there is such an app. and an intro design app would be great too :).

    I just miss an awesome drag racing game and a jet fighting game from IOS. Forget the name of them. I haven't seen anything matching imovie yet. I know the 920 has a cinema app but will have to see what all it does

    well an cinema app sounds promising, hopefully something similar and would be great since the camera is already superb.

    Me too, I really think wp8 is going to be the perfect mix of OS's to finally keep me settled in one platform. I am happy with the 900 right now and only see it getting better

    You'll have this Interview: Skulls of the Shogun co-creator on working with Windows 8 - Neogamr and another called Adera that are cross-play with WP8 to start with. Already done the first episode of Adera on my W8 tablet, looking forward to the rest.
