    Why? Why shouldn't I think of a device I want. I'm the one that's going to buy it, I don't own Nokia stock.

    Is it that hard to want a phone that's made with WP8 OS in mind? I had higher expectations from Nokia because they have their future rising on this, and what do they give us? Rehashes and watered down cameras.
    They aren't giving us full PureView yet because it was not a technology developed thinking about Windows Phone.
    PureView started being developed more than 5 years ago when Nokia had no idea that they were going Windows Phone (or even that the OS was going to exist). PureView was meant for Symbian, so now it has to be ported to Windows Phone, which takes time if Nokia wants that job done right.

    It's ironic how you ask for hardware that is made with WP8 in mind and after that you ask for full PureView, which was created for another OS...

    Their future is on this which is exactly why they aren't making the phone you're asking for. Its kind of like complaining that there isn't a physical keyboard. Like a PureView phone, it is a niche. It won't sell the numbers that Nokia needs to sell.

    It really makes sense from a business perspective.

    You need to with a Sammy then. Seriously. They generally have the horsepower under the hood you seem to be looking for.

    All these devices seem to be mock ups or perceived - we won't know what they really have until they are released - or have a link to the Nokia site.

    But it doesn't matter - to those bound and determined, Nokia will fall short of their expectations no matter what they come with. They'll be either too slow, or the Pureview won't have enough megapixels (like anyone needs 41 mp in the first place unless you take pictures of crime scenes), or the design will be ugly or some other excuse to complain.

    I like Nokia - I like their designs, their heritage and their build quality. But I'm not married to them and if their designs fall short for me, I won't take it as a personal affront.

    I'll simply choose a different device.

    I don't really like the big black empty bazel in the bottom of the phone. Couldn't they move the Nokia logo to there so it would look less like wasted and useless space that just makes the phone bigger?

    I'm excited for the new Lumia line. Lumia now comes in red!! I've been waiting for a red smartphone for ages. If it comes with PureView, that's another big plus.

    Samsung does nothing for me. Brushed metal? Don't embarrass yourself. My Titan has an actual aluminum backplate.

    Of course, if HTC whips out a Snapdragon S4 Pro in time for the WP8 launch, I would be looking at HTC without hesitation.

    What's amazing about the GS3 design is how great it feels in the hand. It's so light, I couldn't believe it.
    You are talking of "no compromises", but right off the bat you are fine with compromising the looks (and premium feel) of a device for your personal preference in weight and shape.

    Don't even bother.

    I mean under the capacitive buttons. There is a lot of black/empty/wasted bazel where the Nokia logo should be placed. Makes more sense than having it on the top of the screen where the bazel is smaller.

    Nokia Lumia 920 rumoured to be 8 Megapixel

    Pureview got people's attention because of it's bonkers megapixel density. Unless the PQ is outstandingly good at 8MP, this is going to be a serious disappointment for those who were (myself included) looking forward to getting their hands on what we thought was pureview.

    Here's hoping we still get the 21mp.

    There is nothing compromising about choosing a person's personal preferences as long as they are his/her own.

    I think it's perfectly valid to say, "I don't like Samsung's design because it 'feels' cheap" or "I don't like Samsung's just another slab design style." I think it's equally valid to say, "I don't like Nokia's unibody, rainbow design." We're entitled to disagree and prefer the other or HTC or whomever. This isn't Apple where you get one choice (black or white), and we have to be of one mind!

    Nokia will definitely take a LOT of flak for dishing out the jokes on Samsung if they underwhelm consumers this way, and I know I won't be the only one disappointed if they do this either.

    I guess the question to be asking is... where did the source of 21MP vs 8MP come from? I know at WPCentral, we've all been speculating on 21MP, but I don't recall why that was some magic number (because that's what the chipset supports, I think). Did we just speculate that since that's supported that it would be used?

    Or was 21MP also part of the leaked information, and now someone else is trying to speculate otherwise?

    I'm not sure where it came from, but Phi is 21st letter in the Greek alphabet and their recent "Things are about to change" video is 21 seconds long. :)

    I'm still holding out for the 21MP camera. Come 'on, Nokia. Don't let us down.

    I'll love to have your optimism Big Supes. But we will know in just 2 days.

    I don't have much hope for Nokia since HTC and Samsung threw superior phones on the Focus S and Titan 2 and they don't care about WP.

    It's subjective, but I know I'd prefer a L900, hands-down, over the TItan and Focus S.

    More from the rumour mill...

    920 to have 8MB camera
    32MB storage
    Wireless charging.

    This 8MP camera had better be something special, if it's true. As for the wireless charging, that's a real treat.

    I loved the 900 until I learned the camera was terrible, it won't be updated and hold on in my hands.

    I don't even know why I'm still looking up to them, maybe is because of their importance. I rather have more WP8 information.

    The latest firmware update worked wonders for the camera, at least for me. Low light pictures now look good. Maybe not great, but definitely good.

    I want WP8 to succeed, I use a lot of Microsoft services. But man is like they want to fail on purpose, how come every piece of news is negative?. I used to be such a happy fanboy at the beggining T_T.

    On topic, Wireless charging sounds pretty cool. But I secretly hope it doesn't have that because I do sell chargers for a living LOL.

    I do like the Lumia 820 a lot look wise. Hopefully the specifications will be similar to Lumia 920 that will no doubt have HD screen and that same Qualcomm platform with dual core 1.5Ghz krait cores.

    Lumia 920 looks great as well but after N9, Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 i want something different. That is if Lumia 920 doesn't do total killing on the specifications compared to 820.
