    I came from an Android Skyrocket, sold it a week ago, and have been using a Palm Pre+ until yesterday. Gotta say the 920 is a breath of fresh air from the Palm and the Android. Voice texting on WP is exactly what I wanted, no worries about closing apps or my texts being read out loud during meetings (Android)

    Came from HP Veer on WebOS, Pre before that, and just about every palm phone back to the Samsung I300 (was around 2000-2001?). Miss throwing away a card to close an app and having a phone that really fit in my pocket, but that is about it.
    Yeah, the cards are very intuitive. I loved using Preware as well to maximize phone performance (had my Pre+ running at 1GHz from a 500 MHz processor)

    I'll be coming from iOS. I've had an IPhone since the 3g, but I'm bored with the OS and want to try something different.

    coming from an iphone4. i wanted to get an iphone 5. but the hardware is meh. i just heavily dislike the design.

    multiple issues, the back of the phone is made of at least 6 different pieces, different materials. which makes it less strong. then they used a weaker metal too. so the aluminum i have seen reports of people's phones bending at the volume buttons. it just shouldn't happen, it's flat out poor design, which is inexcusable for apple. they could have easily used slightly thicker aluminum to fix the bend issue, this means they didn't test the phone long enough. just watch the iphone 5s is going to have a thicker aluminum band around the phone. in fact, i think some of the newer models are coming with a slightly different bezel. probably to help against bending.

    i don't like the new taller aspect ratio.

    i actually liked the new maps on iphone 4, the design of the text and vectors made loading and stuff really fast.

    the design though is what really killed it for me. and theres only one iphone 5 design to choose. it's either their way or the highway. so really if they don't do the design perfectly how i like it, theres no other option but to go with it, or get a different phone. so i might as well jump on some other ecosystem now. i don't really like android. but the hardware issue is fixed there. i could go to multiple different hardware vendors and find hardware that i like... same with windows phone, but the os design is very cool. so i went to windows phone.

    i picked up my windows phone so far so good. lumia 920. i like the curved glass, makes it a little heavier, but it's oh so solid feeling. no flex to this glass screen. also i love the solid polycarbonate body. and windows phone 8 is fresh and cool. i like green tiles :)

    I've had a Samsung Focus from the beginning, and an LG Incite before then, oh yes, I've been on windows for quite a while.

    Thanks for responding to the poll everyone! I was curious to see just who would come out on launch weekend and make the leap for the 920. I have personally loved mine so far, although I still don't have a charging plate from AT&T yet (ahem!). I'll come back later and post my thoughts on this poll's results and what that could mean for the mobile market in a bit.

    I'd also be curious to see how well the WP8X and 820 (which are both across carriers) did this weekend as well, and do a sort of meta-analysis of the launch of WP8 and what it could mean for the future of WP and the mobile OS wars in general! Then of course, I open the floor and look forward to great discussion to the future of the new kid on the block.
