    I am officially switching to AT&T if this is true. I don't care if I have to pay the $200 early termination fee.

    Yes, it is support for LTE.

    Nokia Drive will eventually replace Bing Maps.

    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

    As others have said, Nokia quality is second to none. I have lived in Russia and several other countries, and have always had my Nokia phone with local SIM alongside my US phone. I have never been happier than with Nokia hardware running Symbian. For me, it will come down to the wait. Now that we know the Focus S is coming the first week of November, that gives us all the opportunity to see what happens at Nokia World before buying anything else. If the wait for a Nokia device on AT&T is going to be, say, 6 months past Nokia World, then I will get the Focus S. But if we are only talking a month or two, then it would be worth the wait.

    For me:

    1- Nokia phones have a kung-fu grip on reception. My Focus, while great, will drop calls.
    2- Nokia will have a very nice camera/imaging solution. Trust me on this one.

    Q1 or Q2 of 2012. Trust me on this one.

    A history of top class hardware design, build and camera quality. Plus they are 100% committed to WP7, unlike HTC, Samsung and the rest. They are going to be doing their best work with their WP7 handsets so once they get up to speed in 2012 we should see some amazing handsets for WP7.

    I was leaning toward either the Focus S or Titan since they are coming out sooner and I want a 7.5 WP. But now I'm wondering if I should just pick up a phone off ebay, get the update to Mango and then wait for Nokia. Appreciate all the responses

    Honestly, the hardware and OS is pretty standardized for WP7 so I would not expect Nokia WP7 to be a giant leap from the other WP7 manufacturers. About the only thing that I know of that they are working on to differentiate themselves from the others is the camera/imaging solution.

    Aside from that, reception/call quality, and industrial design will be the other differentiators.

    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.

    I was using a H2O SIM card for a while in my Treo Pro for a while. I picked it up at Best Buy. It's on the AT&T network and I couldn't tell any difference.

    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.

    That kung-fu grip and nice camera are two things I'm very interested in.

    If Apple is 2-3 years ahead why don't you have an iphone?

    That's not true at all. Verizon has "world phones" that can roam both on GSM and CDMA networks. I believe Sprint offers some as well. AT&T and T-Mobile phones are GSM and can work just fine in most countries.

    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.

    As far as resolution goes, 800x480 is the standard for Windows phones. There probably won't be anything higher than that until WP8. I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing, either. It means app devs have one native resolution to develop for and don't have to worry about different aspect ratio. Besides, I don't see anybody whining about Galaxy S2's (and soon to be Focus S's) amazing 800x480 SAMOLED+ screen.

    The iPhone uses an LCD screen. Retina display is just Apples branding. It has that high pixel count because it has a much smaller than normal screen. It doesn't matter if a phone has GSM and CDMA radios. It can only work on a CDMA network if that network will activate it. They only activate phones that they carry. There were a number of world phones before the iPhone.
