    Yeah, the Focus has much better OS. I cracked the screen of two of my iPhones. The iPhone 4 was still under warranty and they replaced it for free. But It cracked way to easy. I've dropped my focus several times...not a scratch on it!
    cause of Android hehe ;) but yeah i know HTC is good . like you can see in my signature MOST of my phones have been HTC.

    i actually like the Build qualaty / feel of Samsung phone. hehe , i dunno if id go as far as saying they are Iphone Clones ( they much beter then Iphone lol ) every one i know whith a Iphone 4 has broken then screen atlease once sints they have it LOL. but they do have that ALL the phone are the same Strategy.

    PS, nice new avatar.

    My cousin shattered the screen on his Focus. He just drops his phone all the time. And he doesn't use a case. So it's not that big of a surprise.

    AT&T insurance sent him a refurbished Focus. The antennae stopped working after 3 days.

    I have a refurbished Samsung camera where the led screen messed up after a few weeks.

    I hear stories all the time where people get replacement Samsung devices and they break over and over again.

    My Focus has been great. So has my wife's. But I have a feeling that Samsung does a really crappy job refurbishing their products.

    thats why we stoped ( my company ) giving refurb phones , now we actually just fix it. and give a temp phone for the week or 2 that it takes.

    I was a long time Palm user. My first Nokia phone was the N8. It's really a nice phone. It has a solid one piece aluminum body, gorilla glass, a 12MP camera that takes outstanding photos, HD video, a radio transmitter for playing your music over your radio, OVI maps are really good. Any of their promo videos will show you just how nice of a phone it is:

    I am sure I get a Nokia WP phone.
    This is what I'm hoping they do for WP. I remember holding my Zune HD and thinking, this is what I want my phone to feel like, even if it were a little bigger. It seems like this is what the Nokia phones will be like. If they have an aluminum body, gorilla glass, and great camera, they will have the sex appeal WP needs to convert people.

    Right now, why would you get an HTC WP phone when you can get the same exact phone with Android on it with a bigger app market and more commercial acceptance? Now, I did it, and I know many people here did, but the average customer walking into a cell phone store will steer away from the little-known WP in the corner and go for the Apple or Android phones that are pervasive in the phone industry.

    Nokia could change that if they make devices that just look and feel like luxury devices. Things like build quality, camera quality, superior reception, and attractive accessories could really help get WP devices into the hands of consumers. If they become just another Samsung, then they won't make a difference for WP.

    HTC just had it's third consecutive record breaking quarter.
    No doubt due to Cavendish winning all those sprints in the Tour de France ;)

    Colour me excited about Nokia getting on board. While my HTC HD7 isn't bad, I've definitely had better build quality in the past. The touch screen is a bit hit' n miss, the camera is terrible, and the phone generally does strange things, for example, turn the volume down and pause music by itself.

    My first ever cell phone was a Nokia device. I always <<wanted>> a Nokia Smartphone, but they were either not available or way too expensive.

    If I'm remembering correctly Nokia phones used to have very good reception. I'm hoping Verizon gets a WP7 that does better than the trophy. I would definitely get a Nokia.
    I seem to remember that Nokia had some adverse feelings toward CDMA. I can't put my finger on it but it sticks in the back of my head. That being said, a really good Nokia phone might be the thing to push me over to AT&T.......maybe.....

    Well supposedly they're making a high-end WP7 phone for Verizon.

    Nokia is changing their strategy immensely:
    - Their first WP7 devices are using Qualcomm chips. This is a big deal, since Nokia had a bitter patent dispute with Qualcomm just a few years a go and refused to use their chips.
    - They used to only sell their high-end phones unlocked, now they will sell them subsidized through the carriers
    - They're taking a "US-centric" approach, with exclusive models for each carrier. Including CDMA.
