    Well we already had a woman, not that we shouldn't have another. I think if we did get someone that wasn't a white person it might help make people realise that the UK is multicultural.

    This has to happen in Canada and Australia as well.

    Neither Canada not the US have had a woman leader.

    Then again. I really hate politics as it's crap regardless which crap party you put in. There's been zero progress since the conservative 80s. If anything I'd like to have a referendum on politics itself but then too large of a population wouldn't know what we were having a referendum on.

    That's really the issue with the world. Too many people are clueless and are more concerned with living their lives than to care about a bunch of pompous jerks in office. So they keep getting elected by a minority of voters.
    like the US congress.... they are to busy blocking each others agendas than talking it over :/

    It really should boils down to leadership skills and effectiveness, not merely striving for diversity. Here in the US, history will have a mixed view on Obama...came in like a lion, may end up leaving like a lamb. It would have been tough for a phone to succeed under the terms Obama came in...didn't help he didn't put his foot down firmly in some ways, did court the rich business leaders well enough and that some members of Congress were elected and wasted their time opposing him blindly than helping to move the country forward.

    Yup. That's because it has the AWS LTE bands for T-Mobile and the regular LTE bands for AT&T. So I have 3 AWS LTE supported models...the unicorn, the Princess and a OPO.

    While people talk about the chip set jump from the 801 to the 805 being minor, the jump from the 800 in both the Z Ultra and 1520 to the 801 in the OPO is serious. I don't feel any warming with yard use on the OPO as I feel with the Z Ultra and so far with the 1520. Yes, it is older tach but MSFT outside the limited release W8 has been rocking older chip sets since 8.0 was launched.

    It's early morning. I want trying to imply to have diversity for diversity sake. I just think there are a lot of issues around diversity here, Canada, US and Australia and I'm sure other countries as well.

    I feel sorry for Obama and the circumstances he got elected in and then never having a chance to do anything because the other party was more interested in the blame game than doing anything useful. I feel for the US. I really do. The next 10 years could really suck.

    i honestly would of gone with the 930 if i knew 3 things 1) the glance on the 830 wasn't as good as my 810 2) if i knew msft was coming out with a smart band 3) if the 930 had T-Mobile LTE bands
    the only time i find glance is useful is at night because its dimmer and dimmer the better. the glance on my 810 was bright

    So unless MS surprises us with some unknown flagship phone that they managed to keep secret I'd say next weeks announcement is going to be quite disappointing for many people.

    Of course, announcing and having it for sale are two different things.

    Oh, oh!!! US only... :P

    The battery on the 930 is small. I'm told that once you start to push it you can get Nexus 5 like performance - not good. If the 1520 ran a little warm on my last night and all I was doing was Xbox Music + IE via WiFi, the 930 might singe me at that rate. I was hopeful that they'd do a unicorn version of the 930 but I guess it would clash with the Icon and they were putting it in less markets than the 830.

    Well since I haven't bought the L930 you can guess my opinion of it. People are speculating that the new phone they're announcing is the 1330.

    Have I mentioned I don't like the number system?

    So now I have an issue... :/

    The Moto Droid Maxx (Turbo) is Mexico only with no release dates for anywhere else (how weird). So now I'm a bit stuck what phone to get next. Sigh.

    I'm starting to feel like a second class citizen over here...

    MIA, thoughts on Nexus 6? Sony Z3? What would you go with? I'm a little lost now.

    You've got a size issue...lol. If you pick the Nexus 6, might as well have gone with a 1+1, slightly smaller,such cheaper, still very good specs and more internal memory - the 32GB model will be way more expensive than the 64GB OPO for instance.

    I would take the Z3 Compact, actually. If you're considering a Z3, it is roughly the same size as the OPO (1+1). Their cameras are a tie, Z3 wins on waterproofing and SD slot; OPO wins on more internal memory, price, and being closer to stock Android.

    If you were still fixed on those two, i'd do a Z3 as it is the smaller device. You're still better off waiting an seeing how the N6 looks in person.

    Personally, I think OEMs will treat the S805 chip like they did the 800 last year...not really use it and just jump into 64 bits with the 810. MSFT being MSFT will use the 805 predominantly. I suppose they'd be smart to jump to 810 chips too due to their longer release cycles on WP, but they won't do that.

    The problem with the 1+1 is that I'm not sure I can get it over here. I thought it was still by invitation only.

    How much does the thing cost anyway? I'd like the latest version if I were to get it. There appears to be different options on the thing.

    Still no idea what to do though. :/

    I'll have to wait some more. How fun. :/

    OK so I can buy the 1+1 and the specs look great. Damn thing is cheap too! I can almost buy two of those for the price of the L830....

    MS needs to target marker share, by releasing low/mid ranged devices, its targeting more of developing countries. Don't worry, 925, 1520 successors are coming soon

    I'm not worrying. I'm simply not caring any more. Let them target low to mid range if that's what they want to do. Some will stick around, others will leave tired of waiting for a half decent flagship. I'll probably be one of them. I'll come back when WP is more mature.
