    I'm VERY happy with the design of the Arrive, never want to move away from a hard keyboard. But If I were to design some improvements for this device I would:

    Make the volume +,- button smaller and closer to the top corner of the phone. This button is just too big and is in exactly the wrong place. Whether I hold the device in landscape or portfolio - I am always bumping the volume!

    Hot Swappable Micro SD card slot accessible from the side of the device. Would support up to 64 GB.

    32 GB or 64 GB on device memory.

    I have a front facing camera on my netbook and my laptop and don't use either one - so front facing camera is negligible to me. Maybe it could be a secondary optional device in the same family?

    HDMI out might be cool - if I had an HDMI TV.

    Definitely would like to use the device as a USB drive - but that's likely more in the software realm than hardware.

    Keep the camera button as is.

    Change the capacitive buttons to hard buttons. These are a pain, too sensitive to my hand proximity. They make me hold on to the very edges of the device and that is risky.

    Add a bit larger battery - not that's I've run out yet, but I find I still use airplane mode in order to avoid running out of battery while at work. A larger battery would let me stay in touch even though signal reception at work wavers.

    I am happy with the screen size and resolution.

    This'll be fun. :)

    - Available on Verizon Wireless
    - 16GB or more
    - SAMOLED+ or SLCD
    - FFC -- I actually tried to Tango with my gf the other day on my Focus and it was just sad. I held my phone up to a mirror. :P
    - NFC-capable (doesn't have to be active atm)
    - 8mp camera with great low-light picture quality
    - anywhere from 4.3-4.7''.
    - it wouldn't feel cheap, like many of Samsung's phones, but I'm not sure what makes them that way
    - Capacitive stylus (a guy can dream, can't he?)
    - actual buttons for back, home, and search
    - hdmi-out

    What I'd settle for:

    - Available on Verizon Wireless
    - SAMOLED+ or SLCD
    - 16GB+
    - Any camera better than the one on the Trophy

    * 4.0-4.1 inch screen - larger becomes unusable/uncomfortable for one handed use and/or you have to sacrifice too much pixel density.
    * Higher resolution than 480 x 800 - something approaching (or exceeding) retina display density
    * 8MP backlit sensor camera with f2.2 lens and great software to back it up
    * Non-pentile SAMOLED+ display
    * Something like the design of the Lumia 800 - doesn't have to be identical, but has to have some individuality to it. Not just another black rectangle that looks like they skimped on build materials (Samsung) or just retooled the half metal, half plastic design again (HTC)
    * noise cancelling second mic
    * phone must have an equalizer to adjust bass/treble for music (why, Nokia? Why have a great music app and NO EQUALIZER???)
    * dual core for a relative level of future-proofing and to give the phone the horsepower to do things such as screen mirroring
    * absolute MINIMUM 1800 mAh battery

    And for the OS:
    * some form of notification centre
    * more accent colours - ideally custom, but failing that, just more of them
    * shortcut toggles on start screen
    * info section to show how much data a live tile uses so you can make a decision as to whether you want to use it or not

    And the only other thing I'd like is for MS to properly open up the OS so devs can take full advantage of the platform and we can have some games that don't look like 2-year-old iPhone ports. I have a brand new, top-end smartphone for this format. I want to be playing the equivalent of Infinity Blade 2, not the millionth reworking of Doodle Jump.

    Basically the Titan, but with a 720p screen, 32gigs of storage, updated internals (dual core CPU and possibly a bit more RAM), and if there's still time throw in a bigger battery for good measure.

    As for the OS, maybe a notification centre when you swipe left on the homescreen.

    I'd like a phone as wide as my Samsung Focus, but as short and thin as my Zune HD, with 64GB of built-in memory, Zune music-video capability, and DLNA or the like so I could beam the videos to my TV. And it would have to work as well as my Focus. Thanks for asking. ;)

    And just like the others, awesome battery life and WebOS card multitasking. I still kinda miss WebOS. Holds a special place in my heart.

    I think that I would like a device like the Nokia 900 with 32GB or even 64 GB (even though I dont need it and may never use it it all its just being able to have it. Thin like the focus S I think the 4.3 inch screen is about ideal although 4.7 is not tooo big but I would like to see higher res and ppi for a larger screen like that. 8MP camera with excellent picture quality and 2MP or so FFC. I think it would be interesting to have a device with LTE bands for sprint VZN TMo and ATT and european asian GSM.

    Okay, Lumia 900. Have the official specs been announced, or are you all just pie in sky hopes it does not let down spec wise like the 800 did?
