    I went to go hang out with a few friends that I hadn't seen in a long time. We are sitting up at the bar talking and playing one of those video game touch screens. Anyways. 2 of my friends notice my cyan 900 and asked if that was a case. I just said," Nope, that's the way it looks naked!" One of the women grabbed it off the bar instantly picked it up and wanted to start playing with tiles. She never even heard of WP7 and was very interested with the looks and how it worked. Instead of using her own Android phone, she spend the next 20 minutes showing her facebook photos (yes through "People") to her friend on my 900.

    Also, I hadn't messed with a iphone 4s in awhile and my buddy sitting next to me had his out. It is amazing how much better, more modern the Lumia/WP looks. He got his iPhone just to try something different and he said that he wasn't that impressed with it. Hopefully I can get him on a Windows Phone down the road when he can get a discount again.

    The 900 is a beautiful phone. Hopefully Nokia keeps putting out nice designs like that.

    It isn't a new design, its the same design from Symbian, yet those on the front page comments never realize that Nokia is guilty of recycling designs too. I don't really care about design I just care about if the phone works for me or not.

    I agree that a good looking phone doesn't mean much if it doesn't operate well. Point was that using a solid design with color got it noticed. For WP7 and phones running it, just having someone realize you exist is a very important first step!

    An item has to have visual appeal. Same goes for broads, if she ain't much to look at you'll be looking elsewhere. That's not a sexist remark, just pure biology. Stevie Wonder might disagree with me but I'll give him a pass.

    Unlike my Focus and Surround, my cyan Lumia is the first WP I've owned that actually got people doing a double take, asking what phone it is and wanting to play with it. With my other WPs they kinda just shrugged them off after I tell them it's a Windows Phone.

    Another phone that I think looks pretty nice is the Samsung Focus 2 in white.

    In the US the Lumia is an exotic looking device. I like the attention grabbing looks, then the things that follow about the ecosystem of WP7

    being BETTER is not enough in our time and AGE..

    its all about being Innovative (unique and different) thats what all the TOP people in ther world are claiming any ways .

    and when u have the Iphone , RIM, Android ( android is still pretty good better then Iphoen and RIM any ways lol ) that haven been innovative in the last 4 years . it leaves ROOM for does clients to be attracted to WP.... :)


    even if you find WP *boring* its still innovative :)

    thats Why RIM and APPLE really need to come out with something HUGE on the next OS or I feel like WP will be making up some ground with WP8.

    Actually its a design initially released for the Meego N9, and was used on the 800/900 because Nokia needed to get up and running with WP quickly. This is much different from the way HTC and Samsung recycle the same old designs year after year then pass them on to WP. Nokia have already released a unique design for the 610, and it remains to be seen what the next models they produce will look like, so this criticism is not really applicable to Nokia.

    Actually no, it's a recycled design for a meego device that no one really ever had in the whole western world and wasn't big anywhere else.

    Its funny to me actually Nokia did recycle the n9 twice once for the 800 and once for the 900 but it still looks better than all the sammy and htc recycles :P

    I hear you on that one. I've had my Focus for over a year and no one's given it a second look. My wife gets a cyan 900 and the first day people are fawning over it. Just adds credence to the title of this thread.

    Chill brutha, just trying to lighten things up a bit. You were getting beat up a little over the Nokia design thing especially by eric12341. But I am worried over the way you reacted, are we hiding something?

    I'd love a nice cyan Lumia 900, I can only get black though. Still best for me to let me contract run out with my Focus, and it still gets quite the attention. :)

    The reason I thanked you isn't because I agree with you. Not in the least. Last night made me realize that soooooo many iPhone users LOVE the looks of this phone. Externally and OS wise, they are wowwed.

    Went to see Avengers last night (kicked *** of course) with my roommate and two other friends-all sporting iPhone 4's and 4S's. Anyway, just shooting the breeze in the lobby and theatre. Mind you, I've had this phone going on a month, but my roommate didn't notice until last night. We were all discussing Modern Family while doing all the pre movie stuff. He asked me if I saw his post the night before, and I showed him how I can differentiate between what I post and how I view others either as a whole, or by user. They were all sitting there with their mouths open asking how I did that, what phone I had, how awesome the screen looked, and so on. These are people that have been with Apple since the 3G.

    Needless to say, gave me a whole new appreciation for this device. So again, thank you for this pointless comment. I'm hoping that you aren't a Windows Phone owner with that sentiment. You can always go back to iOS if you are.

    I mean humans are very visual creatures. Just like how first impressions can be made by looking at how a person is dressed, same could be argued for phones. Most non tech savvy consumers base their purchase on how phones looked. If it looks good, they then check out how it works on the inside.

    In this case Nokia did a wonderful job with the Lumia 800/900. The vibrant colour and simple design of the phone was a match made in heaven for Metro UI. I never did took notice of the N9, but with Metro UI on it, it made me want one ever since i laid eyes on it. I fought the urges for the longest time, and finally took the plunge for an 800 just a couple of days ago.

    I purposely showed up at the AT&T store when it opened on April 9, just so I'd be the first person to get a cyan Lumia 900. It's the first mobile phone I've owned that wasn't black.
