    First off, to answer a few posters earlier comments we do know what HTC is doing for WP. They are repackaging their one series, including the quad core X, for WP. If we still trust them after all the Titan problems, that should be a fine effort.

    However, as a Samsung fan, I am pumped to see this!! My wife is hoping for a WP Note, or we might lose her to the Note 2. I am still holding out hope for a physical keyboard on a high end WP, either from Sammy or Nokia. Otherwise, the 4.65" has possibilities for me.

    I am so happy Samsung is still onboard....
    Ya a note 2 wp8 would be awesome

    It will have the same processor as the US SGS3, the same resolution, seemingly the same camera, and a slightly smaller screen. How does that make it an SGS2?
    I agree, seems like its the WP8 version of the GS3 to me, and no way that we need quad core, gimmie dual core and great battery life anyday!!

    The only issue is from a marketing perspective, u know the android fanbois are gonna be out in force well my phone is better because it has quad core.

    Wishful thinking but, this would be a nice option,
    when LTE is on it run's in Dual Core Mode only, other 2 are disabled
    when in 4g mode all 4 Core are enabled or Dual Core can be used.

    Quad will be smoking and needing a 4000amp battery for 4 hours of talk time, 30 minutes of lte..LOL
    More cores doesn't automatically equal lower battery life. In fact, Samsung's quad core Exynos chip is more energy efficient than the processor it's replacing.

    Samsung Exynos

    Anyone who has bought a new laptop in the last 5 years should know this too. Intel makes their processors faster and made dual and multi-core processors that were faster and more energy efficient than the single core chips that came before them.

    Smaller process = more efficiency, among other things.

    Cores aren't like cylinders in a car.

    So we'll likely see dual-core processors and better in Windows Phones and they will equal or surpass the battery life we're getting now.

    But until the OS is fine tuned to leverage those extra cores, and ESPECIALLY until there is a good selection of APPS that are actually written to take advantage of the extra cores, there is absolutely no point in getting excited about them one way or the other.

    Android fanboys are the biggest idiots in the entire computer and electronics landscape. They make Apple fans look tame. Android is an indefensible cluster*** of bad design, poor taste and shows what happens when you just try to be all things to all people instead of focusing on doing the important things right.

    I just laugh at Android spec whores.

    I don't think it has anything to do with LTE and quad core not playing well together. It is just that the only SoC that has an integrated LTE modem is the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (it helps that they make their own modems). NVIDIA has already claimed we'd be seeing a Tegra 3 with integrated LTE, Samsung recently announced a SGS III quad core with LTE for Korea.
    Exactly and the idea that more cores automatically equals less battery life is also a myth.

    Samsung introduced best big gadgets. First one is Samsung Galaxy Nexus has best 4.65 Inch, excellent HD Super AMOLED display with 1,280 x 720 resolution. According to me second is Samsung Galaxy S3 is best that comes with 4.8 HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display.

    you don't need friggen quad core on your phone! if you have a Lagdroid maybe, but WP7/8 doesn't need a billion cores!
    You don't even need quad core on androids. Those are more for tablets more than anything. But you know how people are they always need more cores.

    I wish.

    No side slider or portrait sliders- my favorite form factor- are even rumored for WP from Sammy, HTC, or Nokia. It seems low end Android get the qwerty love. For that matter, Samsung took a step back with the Captivate Glide on AT&T when you compare that flat, 4 row keyboard with the Epic's raised, 5 row keyboard on Sprint that was released in 2010.

    Motorola seems to be the only manufacturer that takes that form factor seriously with the Droid series on Verizon and the Photon follow up believed to have a D4 style keyboard on Sprint. How I wish Microsoft could bribe Motorola to release a WP device with that keyboard in exchange for a super cheap settlement on their liscensing dispute, which everyone knows MS is gonna win. I like Moto's quality, love that keyboard, and will get a WP 8. Win/win.

    That would make for a happy Mutt....

    Nokia was also pushing not long ago qwerty phones with the likes of E7 and their leaked roadmap showed a lot qwerty phones for 2011.
    Thing is, qwerty's are not simply selling so they as others left the market. It is a pity. :(

    Would love to see that all aluminium build qwerty design on WP8.



    Hopefully we see at least somebody making one. Rumors certainly are silent on that front. Though it was said that WP8 should bring more variety to the form factors.

    Smartphones don't need quad-core CPU, they are not sever machines that are processing database queries. Now a quad-core GPU like Apple's A5X is a good idea because you can use all of that processing to speed up rendering.

    I think you are underestimating the resources that WP8 will need - there is a reason that NO WP7 hand sets are being updated - can't run it. So you can't compare the WP7 OS to WP8 because WP8 NEEDS at least Dual Core and may benefit from Quad Core so it is time to get off the WP7 doesn't need multi cores and Android sucks because it can't run on less than multi cores.

    But, but, HTC already announced two new WP8 devices; one with dual core and one without. Pleaser explain. And how about all the effort Microsoft is putting in to offer low end devices to every corner of the world. Do you believe these devices, costing less than $160 US retail, will have multi-core processors?

    I would bet that WP8 could run on a iPaq. ****, the Win 8 preview ran fine on my nearly nine year old Fujitsu P7010 Lifebook. No dual core there. And none needed.

    You sir sound Like a tool and I'm not trying to come off as brash but think about what the mobile atmosphere would look like without android? Android has pushed the spec limit and it has benifited everyone by driving down prices and forcing OEMs to come out with new and better things. Do you think a 5.3 inch device would be the norm without the note? Do you think we would be seeing 5 inch 1080p panels without android? Do you think you would be able to buy a Nokia L900 for 400 bucks without android. Now this is in no way bashing wp but recognize what android has brought to the community before bashing weather you like the mess that android is or not at least acknowledge what they have done for us all.
