    520 looks terrific. You get a lot for the money, and for people on a budget it's very nice quality. Looking fwd to kicking the tires when the 521 launches.

    The 720 looks great and coming from a dual-core Android phone that I bought in May 2011, the screen resolution and specially the ram can be disappointing. I think they should have gone with 768mb and a 960x540 (which unfortunately is not possible with WP8).

    When I had Android 2.3.5 I played with the Nokia Lumia 800 for a week. I did not like the phone, but loved the software user interface graphics and friendliness of WP7.5 and the speed. The apps where limited but they looked much better than on Android.

    About 14 months have passed and I am now using Android 4.1.2 and have used a WP8 Lumia 920 for a few hours and it seems that not much has changed in Windows Phone in the last 14 months, yet the graphics and user interface of Android looks much better. Especially on a device like the S3 with customized software.

    It seems that Windows Phone software has not moved ahead as fast as Android has and this, plus the limited hardware on the 720 makes me wonder if buying a 720 is going to be a good idea.

    Yet I hope that Nokia and Microsoft promote the 520,620 and 720 heavily and sell 10+ million phones.

    I still wonder why Nokia limited the RAM of Lumia 720 to only 512MB?!!

    I read from some interview (I think it was a interview of the product manager of Lumia 720) that they tested Lumia 720 with both 512MB and 1GB of RAM. They could not find any performance difference between those two even after extensive testing so they chose the 512MB for it being the cheaper option.

    I switched from my NL920 to an optimus G, because I wanted to use both ecosystems. SO, I realized Android is only good on high end while WP performs well (Even better than Android) on ALL devices. So i'll be buying a 520 or 720 in addition to my LOG. (Don't like the 620 design)

    Or perhaps cannibalization? They don't want the 720 to be better than the 820 at a much lower price! But they could have gone with 768MB if WP8 supports it.
