    That picture was just one of the concept renders Nokia released the day they made their Windows Phone announcement. It may or may not end up being a real product.

    That said, you just know Nokia's WP7.5 flagship will be amazing. I'm switching to AT&T if that's where it goes to.
    Aw man, I didn't saw that one before. It has that LG Optimus like form factor that I really like. I like those sharp edges. I'll cross my fingers =D

    The screen resolution is set by Microsoft. OEM's cannot make higher resolution screens. And as far as CDMA goes, it's over... I've faced the facts, and it's time everyone else does too. It needs to go away, we need to join the rest of the world.

    don't mind the non-'retina' display on the Focus, the only issue I have is the color banding.

    They can't keep up with Apple. The iPhone 4S is the first "world phone" and once again Apple changes everything. The competition is always 2-3 years behind. Maybe by 2015 we'll finally get a Retina Display on a Windows Phone instead of the same old 800x480 crap.
    BTW the updated Samsung Omnia 7 that recently went through FCC certification has both GSM and CDMA bands. That will likely be the first Windows world phone that can run on both CDMA and GSM networks.
    Ahem...

    Might happen. Some analysts think Verizon's adoption of LTE, could be the beginning of the end for CDMA. It's not just used in the US, but also Canada, Mexico, China, Japan, Taiwan and Korea.

    I might as well suck it up like you. I'm at the point where I'm actually pissed off about the lack of CDMA Windows Phones, and Verizon and Sprint obviously aren't that interested. I'm eligible for an upgrade at the end of October, and if i don't even hear a HINT of new Verizon WPs, then I guess I'll settle for the Trophy. There's nothing wrong with it at all, it's actually a really nice phone; I was just hoping for some new hardware, maybe with a front-facing camera. Oh well, I'll just keep coming back here every day for any word on new phones... even though I'll be drooling over the ones going to AT&T and TMO haha.

    Kingcrimson: yeah, but you still wont have to buy new accessory docking stations/radios, new cases every other year, be told what you like or have the freshest fully integrated UI that has ever been put into a cell phone like the boring played out grid of apps of the awesome iPhone.....

    How are you enjoying a glass back that can't be dropped onto a table from 5cm above? How are you enjoying a static weather icon? How lovely is the drop-dead pathetic UI? It was made for users who want to emulate real life on their phones, with features such as brushed aluminium and wood inserts. Look around, the world is a great place. Stop burying your nose in your screen to make out the individual pixels.

    CDMA is a dying technology. Also, the US has severe fragmentation between carrier networks. Most Windows Phones will be able to easily switch between all the carriers in my country.

    Well, since its integrated into the people hub and there isn't an app for that, I didn't think he's be interested.

    I wonder what mango+ is?
    Could be referring to Tango. Otherwise I don't know.

    As a Palm/HP WebOS user I'm not familiar with what other OEMs have to offer. I'm used to Palm's crappy hardware. I have been checking out this site to learn more about WP. I'm wondering why so many are willing to wait for Nokia's phones when the Focus S and Titan are about to be released. What is it about Nokia that is worth the wait? Thanks
    I thought the same thing. Weird thing is, I use to work with a guy from Iraq and I showed him my BlackBerry when I first got it. He said Nokia has the best phone. I was puzzled. Then Googled Nokia smartphones and began researching it.

    When I saw the Nokia N9 with Meego I began to cry. It's not only the single greatest piece of hardware on a smartphone but Meego would have been awesome going from WebOS. Just look through the video Nokia has and try to find some UK reviews. All very good. nokia's Channel - YouTube

    WebOS is sadly gone, but hopefully Nokia and Microsoft can fill that gap.

    I'm interested in the signal strength Nokia phones are supposed to have. That's the biggest complaint I have with my trophy.

    Has Nokia ever made a CDMA phone? I thought I read somewhere that all their phones were GSM.

    Thanks

    I really hope Nokia releases a superphone. The rumors on WPC's front page are not interesting at all. It will be a shame if they come out the gate with a whimper instead of a roar after all this time and hype. I would hate to see them become the next Palm or RIM.

    Also, CDMA phones in China aren't carrier locked, like they are in the U.S. They have a SIM type CDMA card.

    You are right, Nokia needs to come out with a roar. Something along the lines of my Nokia N8 with a 12MP camera, radio transmitter, HDMI port and dual core CPU.
