over in the "T-Mobile's Nokia Lumia 710 Will Not Receive Windows Phone 7.8" discussion:

I am really angry about this.

I have been waiting for a long time, and now this??? I really like T-Mobile, but this is ridiculous. Can't it follow suit with others who are allowing the 7.8 update?

Does anyone know how I could do it manually? I am not into "flashing" my phone, or turning it into a brick. I am pretty technical, but don't want to risk ruining my phone. Is there a way to force it to update through Zune or some other tool?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I love the phone itself.

Thank you!

Terry

The update can be installed...

The update can be installed via Microsoft's Zune software "or" the Windows Phone Connector for Mac.

Fire Stephen Elop, The CEO of Nokia

It seems that the only real person they should have fired is stephen elop. He has single-handedly destroyed the top cellphone manufacturer. I don't quite understand why the share-holders keeping the same CEO who through a short 1.5 yrs at the helm has resulted in a 68% drop in Nokia's share values.

The only way for Nokia to survive this is to maintain yet minimize its reliance on Windows mobile. Simutlaneously, it must introduce an android line-up which would allow it to generate some income while windows mobile OS develops.

Microsoft just needs to buy Nokia

They have a good thing going with Lumia. Consolidate resources, come out with the next version of Windows 8 for tablets, phones, etc., and you have a winning combination. You then have a big three competition, with excellent choices. Apple products, Google/Motorola products, and Microsoft/Nokia products.

Let the games begin!

Awesome videos and pics

This camera phone will make for excellent recording of impromptu events. The accuracy of the zoom and the excellent recording microphones make it great to capture almost anything. Can't wait to get it.

Congrats Nokia, you will sell 100 phones

This phone is so hot, its gonna do just as well as the Nokia n900. Yea I'm sure you remember the one , with Maemo, the where Nokia lost 50 million on one phone.
So Nokia wants to put out an awesome camera phone, Why not put it in something they're promoting like windows ? Why bother with a dead OS like symbian. Really bizarre. Nokia needs to fire Stephen Elop before he bankrupts the company.

over in the "Nokia Reveals Hotspot Feature Headed to Lumia Line" discussion:

Big screw up for Nokia

The single and ONLY reason that I did not get a Lumia 710 was becuase it was advertised as not having hotspot. Not that it would be enabled by a future release - but that it was not a function that was at all available.

If nokia would have advertised that it was available but would be enabled by a future software update, im sure this phone would have sold better.

changed mind I reccomend over the Radar!

Ok so I need to really think before I post (re my previous posts saying the radar was better). I didnt get enough hands on with this at CES. So I went to the store & exchanged tonight. And the unit you actually get is better then the demo units running in stores too! Besides the lack of Front facing camera I think the Lumia 710 IS better overall then the Radar now. Smile They are still both really similiar but the faster processor and Nokia drive app plus i like the Lumia design are enough in my opinion to make it better. I was thinking the radars camera was better (they both have slightly diff settings) Now I have to give it to the 710. But you cant go wrong really with either one if you want a good wp & your on Tmobile. But I would reccomend ...

Going with the Radar

Im gonna get the htc radar now instead of the Lumia. I thought I was deadset on the 710 but after reading all the incoming reviews. Others are coming in that the radars camera takes better photos & has a more powerful flash which is impt to me. So I will pick that up at the same price point with tmobile's upcoming sale starting Fri. Plus there offering the 100 dollar trade in offer still & I believe a 25.00 app card. Overall the Radar looks to be the better of the two. and I thought the 710 was gonna be..

Meh.

I really liked the look of this phone and the screen that Nokia technology sounds real nice. However after this review I dont think I would be switching to it from my Sensation kinda getting bored of Android and would like to try something different. I hope that when my phone gets ICS it changes my mind about switching to a new OS. xP

Wow, how um... unique and um innovative

Wow a Slab Style Capacitive Touch Screen with Graphic User Interface Multi Media capable, that can push you email to you, download apps utilize widgets. From a has been manufacturer that sold out its own organic OS (Symbian) to run a Window Mobile OS (did they see how well running Windows on a Treo worked for Palm? When they ditched Garnet Based Palm OS to do so.. ) which may I say is behind the curb of Android and iOS ...

What's next? A Blackberry running Windows 7.5?

I kinda liked Symbian and Nokia... But I am SMH on this one... What the heck..

Don't be an early adopter

Aside from die hard nokia or windows fans, I hope no actually seriously considers buying this device. The alternatives like ios and android are much more mature OS's and offer tons of more apps. Plus, nokia has a poor history of success with smartphones in the US and I find it hard for them to break this negative image. Most folks in USA associate nokia with the $10 prepaid trackphones and the like.

Start of Something New?

Hopefully, this will well represent some of the goodness to come from this Nokia and MS partnership. I really curious about the Nokia 900 series WP7. If the specs of that WP7 series are true, MS will have another winner, like the HTC Titan. LTE, 4.3in. Screen, up to 32gigs of storage and the built in Nokia turn by turn GPS software.

For those of you that hate on WP7 and don't think it will do well in the long run, just remember where the original Xbox and Playstation where and now the Xbox360 and PS3 status started. No one expected MS to be able to pull of being the number one selling game console in America. I use this example because, MS didn't give into the pressure of being the underdog and continued to show us that their console is ...
