    parson my naive-ness however I am new to the whole Mobile Tech world. Why is Nokia held to such regard? I see things posted all over that if any one is to open the eyes of WP7 it's Nikia.

    Fantastic build quality. Excellent cameras. They've always had great hardware, just awful software powering their phones

    Couple of reason, I'll use my N8 as an example pentaband GSM covers all GSM markets, Nokia Maps, 12MP camera Carl Zeiss lens, radio transmitter, HDMI port, solid one piece unibody anodized aluminum body.

    Nokia uses quality components in their builds. There's a website called what does it cost, that tears mobile phones down looks at their components and estimates how much it cost the manufacturer to make. The Nokia N8, which I still have cost more to build than the iPhone.

    Yup, Symbian^3 is not a great OS. It works, but it's not keeping up with the others.

    Not patiently but I AM waiting, if the sea comes out in europe with pentaband, I will import that. If it dosnt have pentaband I guess I will have to wait for the ace next year, but it will be hard considering I want WP NOW so I may be tempted by titan and focus S... Currently I have a GS2 and its a great phone, just that wp7 is so damn good....and that sea ray in particular is just wow! Design wise for me. Please announce some good stuff for Nokia World!! A sea ray for US this year would be amazing, doubtful though...
    Install the wp7 launcher and wait it out if you can.

    Just incase you wan't a closer look. :)

    Nice looking,(Omnia 7 esque) but no sense in getting a smaller screen than my Omnia 7. :)
    Really, press release photos are now just rerendered images? All they did was take the N9 renderings and drop in a wp7 screen.

    Good info. I'll be honest. Everytime I heard Nolia I though tabout that small phone, the 5800 I think. Never thought of them as being premium hardware.

    This is why Nokia is highly rated: "After pulling the N9 from the box, I was immediately impressed by the sleek feel of the N9 including the high quality feel of the plastic. The display is soft and smooth and I can’t stop myself from rubbing the display with my finger. The glass on the display is curved and molds around the edges into the front shell. The design is fantastic and if Nokia brings a Windows Phone device in this form factor I know what device I am going to buy."

    "The Nokia N9 hardware is absolutely beautiful and I am having a hard time putting it down. The glass on the front is curved and designed to give it a wonderful feel. The back is angled nicely at the four corners and it is tough to stop rubbing such a nice back design."

    Here's the Nokia N9 MeeGo phone and you can't have it (review) | ZDNet

    Another hardware overview:

    Picture all that on a 4.3 superphone. 'Nuff said! :)

    Highly rated, so much they about to take a nosedive into non-existence. I wonder if they would have paid more attention to software, they wouldn't be losing so much marketshare. Style over substance never pays off.
    The last Nokia I ever bought.

    They definitely know how to make good hardware, the N8 and E7 are built much better than any current WP7 device but let down by the OS. Substitute WP7 for Symbian and a Nokia device is a totally different proposition.

    "pure Font" + hardware buttons = fAIL. The iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus have set the new bar for what we can expect for smartphone hardware. The HTC Titan comes the closest.

    Um.........a volume rocker, a power switch, and a dedicated camera button is NOT a fail, ESPECIALLY the camera button. All phones that come without one is a fail. Very hard to tap a touch screen when taking a picture of yourself

    Some people have been clamoring for real buttons isstead of capacitive I guess its a matter of personal preference. I dont see that much difference in the pure font and segoe I'm keeping an open mind until I can play with a titan a focus s and a nokia. Or wahtever comes alomng helck iof I go on and put my 32gb sdhc cvard in and it works well I may hold on to it until WP gets LTE!

    I've grown to dislike the capacitive buttons on my Focus. Getting knocked out of games and apps is annoying.

    The Nokia 800 hardware is still, in my opinion, the best looking of all the newly introduced devices. If it has a version with 64GB of storage capacity, I might even be convinced to buy one even with its smaller screen

    KingCrimson, I hope you enjoy it when Andy Rubin announces that Android will have a left strip on the screen for the volume rocker, and a strip on the right for the camera.

    Emulating the hardware buttons was the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Hoping for real hardware buttons from Nokia.

    I'm waiting for Nokia, for sure. I owned many of their phones in the past, here in the UK. They, traditionally, had the best build quality, quality camera, and great battery life. Im hoping they will bring those qualities to WP7.

    I currently have an old HD2 with WP7.5 on it, which runs great, so am waiting for Nokia's 4.3" screen version. For sure I want a screen larger then 4". I would have been tempted by the titan but I feel 4.7" is just too big for me. None of the other WP7 phones have really excited me so far. My upgrade doesnt come until January so I can afford some wait and see time.

    However, it also depends on Nokia not making too many changes to the WP OS. I saw the screenshots of Searay and the "Nokia Musik" tile. Well I dont like the name for a start, but of course its the functionality that counts. We will see.


    Regards.
