    I think there's still definitely room for 32GB or more phones. Example Nokia N9 easily most popular version is the 64GB, compared to 16GB.

    I myself listen music a lot and have in the years collected about ~24GB of music (most is lossless) that i transfer to all of my gadgets. I'm also the kind of person who isn't fan of cloud memory, so i'm not using those services before they are forced to me.
    If i wasn't this old (22 ;)), haven't collected that music library and wanna use good quality music that's streamed or connected to my high end music setup i would be more than happy to pay for service like Spotify or use Pandora (if it was available in Europe) so i would not need that memory.


    Though i also see the phone or tablet as some kind of media home that should have that 32GB or more to so you can stream the content to your TV via HDMI, DLNA, AirPlay or whatever.

    You also have those HD movies recorded on the phone itself. More space just gives you the capability to enjoy things without having to think about picking and choosing what content goes with you, just dump it all on there and enjoy anything anywhere.

    Why don't I ever see T-Mobile mentioned as the carrier in these stories? :(

    Perhaps the T-Mobile version will be the one with the 4.7 inch screen. I can always hope.
    Tmobile gets the 710, guess we are the drizzle part of the rolling thunder campaign. :)

    Close enough. Purty ain't it?

    Again, it does have a FFC and supports LTE.

    Oh yeah, videos is what I was forgetting. I was thinking in terms of music and photos only. I can see the need for higher capacity devices. I'm so use to Netflix, I forgot about people still adding movies directly to their phone.
    Well, let's see...I currently have just under 4GB of music files on my phone (a fraction of the 30+GB of mp3's on my computer at home) and believe me when I tell you that this is NOT really a lot of music (at the office for 10hrs a day, 5 days a week = lots of time with the music player running and headphones plugged in). Then between apps and the data space those apps use another 2+GB or so is being used up, reserved space takes a chunk as well, add in pics and other files and I currently have about 850MB of available space left according to Zune. Which means I have to spend time every few days going through my music files and deciding what I MIGHT be in the mood to listen to for the rest of the week, deleting songs off the phone and loading different songs up. Is it the end of the world for me to have to do this? No... but, why should I have to do it? Why not offer more 16GB/32GB+ phones for those of us (and trust me that I am NOT alone in this) who would like to have more of our music and video collections available ON our phones?

    What's the big deal about 32G phones? I use to have a 16G iPhone 4 and now using a 8G Focus, and I always had space left over. I know some people have huge playlist, but how much music can you listen to daily?
    It really does depend on the size of your porn collection. Mine is quite large.

    I would get that one, red really does stand out. Green would be an even better choice, too!

    Thank God CES is just around the corner :)

    Seems like people are liking the red. I dig the black. If you change those tiles to any other color with the red phone, I think it looks pretty terrible. But with a black finish, all tile colors look decent at worst.

    That red is gross. Phone is sweet though. Any color but red please. Would honestly rather have pink.

    I would not worry about the color at all. They have "a bit" of experience on selling phones and certainly know the colors that sell.
    Nokia has been for past year or two offering their phones on multiple colors (getting my Cyan 800 tomorrow), but they know it's the black that sells. Who knows if this render even have color that the phone will be available for.

    Who wants to predict what music they'll be in the mood for and upload, on a daily basis? I have 11G of personal music with multiple playlists that cater for all different moods and occasions. Chuck apps, games, pictures in there and you're pretty much done (considering I don't wish to run at full capacity). I haven't even stored any videos on my phone!

    I'd love an additional 10+G for videos. It's a must for me.

    They also have "a bit" of experience at crumbling and having to go to MS to help rescue them, if they can. So one can look at that both ways.

    Surprised no one has made the obvious association, red for Verizon. Could be an exclusive color and will certainly make it instantly recognisable. And seeing how Verizon loves their campaigns, having an exclusive red Lumia line would be perfect for them.

    Possibly but probably not. Some reports have the 900 or Ace with a physical lanscape kb sliding out other say its a slab I am hoping for a slab but a physical kb would be okay but like the tilt2 I wouldnt use it very much as I am very meh about physical kbs over them after the demise of the treo pro

    I think the problems where a bit deeper than phone colors. :D At the moment it seems more likey that Nokia might save MS mobile plan, than the other way.
    As Elops strategy change scrumpled Symbian sales, even if they still sell multiple time what wp sells.

    Verizon is too busy pushing droid phones. They are the droid carrier.

    I could definitely see AT&T pushing this as a carrier flagship considering the iPhone is cross-carrier now and they haven't really had a single smartphone to really push since that happened
