    I'm not too impressed with the specs... currently on a 950... but if I had the room in my current budget, I'd get on the list and order one... Just don't have any disposable income at the Moment.

    As I posted in the specs thread, the biggest gripes I have with the phone is the screen size, camera and resolution. It would have been nice to have a 6" or larger screen, OIS and at least a 1920 X 1080 screen resolution. I know its a "mid-ranger" but still.

    Alright it took me a while to read all the comments in this thread, and my hands are really cold, but I'll give it my best shot to tell all you loving people what I think of the Moment.

    I own both a 950 XL and a 950 (along with an assortment of other phones) so I don't NEED the Moment. I also broke my foot recently, so my funds are limited at the moment. Also, the Moment isn't my idea of the perfect mid range phone. But, you know what? Go WhartonBooks. I really hope you make it. I want this phone to succeed because I want to see what this guy can do with more funds and more fans to play with. I want people to see that it's not all doom and gloom. I love my Windows phones, and I'm happy with my 950 XL, so I'm not planning to buy one of these phones (my girlfriend would kill me) but I strongly suggest anyone who's in the market for a new phone to consider this one. We all need a bit of good news around here. Y'all spend so much bloody time lamenting about the death of Windows 10 Mobile and I'm tired of defending my OS of choice on a website dedicated entirely to the maker of my OS of choice.

    Back this phone. It's not a bad phone for $300 bucks and it certainly won't have any issues running Windows 10. Let's make this happen people.

    Folks need to look past what's on the surface out there (pun not intended) even more so now then before. I read Zac's article and Microsoft looks to be dropping all but the x50 lineup and the 640/xl of the Lumias from getting the Prod Creators update. Stuff will start moving soon, watch.

    If it were an android phone people might be stumbling over each other to get it. I don't understand what exactly people are looking for in a phone from a startup company. Not to be mean but what exactly are you expecting for a sub 300 dollar phone?
    I think its not the company but MS, with the uncertainty over when MS can pull the plug over W10M, ppl may be staying away from new devices.
    That said Cerulean deserve a chance.

    I have not heard any words from Microsoft hinting that they will pull the plug on W10 yet. Which includes W10M. However Microsoft's trending secrecy or silence is hard to deal with sometimes.

    Microsoft is only trying hard to get windows on all sorts of devices of all shapes and sizes. A phone is simply one of the form factors.

    One day maybe windows will be in home alarm/monitoring systems, maybe it'll use Microsoft Flow to control who to call when depending on the scenario.

    They wanted it on the Band3, that failed probably because they couldn't do it in time, that is, getting windows 10 footprint down enough for a device that size.

    Windows everywhere... IoT is the next huge wave of connected devices of various functions. They are not going to pull the plug on one specific device form factor lol. My opinion!

    A friend a while back best summed up things that are ever changing in a some what fast pace, with everything else caught in the middle of it..he called it something like 'an ever-churning work in progress'. You could probably add the phrase never ending some where in there...

    IFTTT at it's finest. I was testing Microsoft's version since back in last year but I kinda forgot about it. Thanks for re-sharing that. And it is for mobile, bonus.

    The phone looks amazing but I'm waiting a bit to get my next phone. I desperately want to support the Moment but I have to see how the camera measures up and even then it will be hard because I can currently get a 950XL for slightly more. I'm keeping an eye on this phone to see where it goes. But more than specific phones, I'm waiting to see where MS plans to take Windows Mobile before buying my next device. Not sure if they are going to do full Windows on ARM for the next phone and leave the other phones behind or what. I'd prefer my decision to be informed because I can only get one device.

    That said, I think the Moment is a beautiful phone.

    @Jason Ward has a Pre-Prod one he's been showing off on Twitter. I think it has limited functionality though. From what @RumoredNow mentioned Greg went as far as to find the specific sensor drivers and to not leave it hanging on QC SoC options only.

    I think the biggest thing to think about is that as of a year ago MS was saying they wanted 3rd party OEM's to make their phones. Well now they have a 3rd party OEM that has done all the work up to this point and is willing to do all the work from this point on. They only need 1 million bucks. If MS cared at all about Windows Mobile and had any intention of keeping Windows Mobile around they would have just provided the million bucks to make this happen. Instead, they have been forced to try crowdfunding. MS as a company spends more money on toilet paper on a daily basis than this and other 3rd parties spent hundreds of millions of dollars to make phones. Cerulean needs 1 million and yet...nothing.

    MS isn't willing to invest 1 million dollars in a 3rd party OEM who is has done and will do all the work to bring a a new Windows Mobile device to market. And where is the Microsoft PR support? 1 tweet and that's it! That tells you all you need to know about where MS stands and what MS intends to do with Windows Mobile. There may be Windows mobile devices in the future, but Windows Mobile, the OS is dead. It's dead to MS which means it's dead to developers as we've seen. And that means this and any other device running Windows Mobile is dead as well. This is absolutely pathetic and it should infuriate every single person who visits this site and has spent any money supporting Windows Phones.

    I feel sorry for Cerulean and Greg. I think they have been set up to fail and given false hope by MS just like the fans have been for the past year or so. I believe that the only reason they have even let them continue with this is because MS knows they won't make their goal. At this point, I think they are trying to get as many people as possible off of Windows Mobile. It is not their future and the last thing they want is a company releasing another phone that they has no intention of supporting within 4 months after it's released.

    It's a shame all the way around and unfortunately, because of MS, this phone has no chance of ever seeing the light of day. If MS was behind Windows Mobile, the fans would buy in. Of course if MS was behind Windows Mobile, the fans wouldn't have to buy in, MS would make this happen.

    I'm sorry Greg. I had some doubts about your intentions at 1st but now I really respect you and what you are trying to do. Mostly however, I respect you because you are no different than us fans on this site. You have been lied to and let down by MS just like us. I won't apologize on behalf of them because they don't deserve it but I will say that you, along with us fans, deserve to be treated much better than we have been by MS. 1 million bucks people, and MS won't do it. Think about that.

    I can agree and disagree with your post above...

    MS isn't willing to invest 1 million dollars in a 3rd party OEM who has done and will do all the work to bring a a new Windows Mobile device to market.
    It would be nice to have the assurance from Microsoft that the funding will be put in and the device will roll out... Very Nice.

    But then who is going to buy it?

    Where is the assurance from our community of users, the majority of whom seem to be rejecting this on one reason or another?

    This is more obfuscating and it side steps the real issue of why there are so few OEMs making phones for our platform.

    Cause and effect. Buy the phones and there is clear incentive for more to be made.

    I don't care what reasons get stated... Someone else should fund it, it's not the spec I want, it's over hyped, who ever heard of them, what the heck is a Wharton Brooks and that's s crummy name... It does not matter the reason, excuse, argument... It doesn't matter how long and logical the post...

    All that matters is the 3 words... I won't buy. Then who would want to sell to us?

    Added Perk #91 . The additional interviews from Jason helped me build more enthusiasm about their plans. I was able to watch all three, and it helped me clear more of my questions up.
