The Lumia 800 looks really really really nice. Any word on a U.S. release date?

hey, I know you are an iPhone fan and was wondering if you can share some advice on a problem of mines. If you don't mind could you answer my concern of mines, do you think Windows would be worth the investment in the long run or will they give up quickly if the nokia/microsoft deal don't show potential early, which I don't think it will.

I've seen in the past where Apple will stick it out with some of their products that they believe in and keep spending money on it, to where microsoft and google will quickly pull the plug on products if it doesn't generate a buzz or cash quickly which is a major concern of mine before I would invest in Nokia windows phone over apple's iPhone.

Thanks for your help Smile

I think Windows is in it for the long haul. They have literally invested BILLIONS into this deal. They have a slow-growing base right now, but Nokia is the best hardware partner you could possibly have to help you out.

Nokia has completely given up on Symbian, so like Microsoft, you can expect them to put a lot into this partnership for quite a while, even if it doesn't seem to be working out initially, they have put everything out there and they really have nothing to fall back on.

With that being said, I am 100% an Apple fanboy. Were it not for the fact I work for T-Mobile and have two phones on me at all times I don't think I'd give up my new iPhone 4s for anything short of an iPhone 5. Time will tell I guess.

I'm sick of Andr...

Yeah I'm no fan of Android either. It's too buggy. Everyone around me has one and are always out of battery life and the phone constantly restarts and etc. I know the android fans will rip me a new one for this but lets be honest, its a piece of crap, I don't care what anyone says. it maybe customizable and all that but it's top of the line crap.

I will probably try out the Nokia and if I don't like it return it within the return day period of the iPhone 4s. Thanks for your insight which makes tons of sense with all the money they've spent on this venture.

WP7.5 is a great option to Android. It does everything I need it to do and compared to my wife's Android, it is more efficient in getting in and out, once you get use to how it works. Not saying one is better than the other, just a good option to turn to. With Nokia and MS partnership, I see WP becoming force to be reckoned with. As it was pointed out, I don't see either party just letting WP remain a hopeful in the mobile market. I would dare to say, given time, it will be a direct competitor to iPhone.
