Windows So, the Microsoft announcement - taking place as I write this, 01:45 in my timezone - turns out to be a bigger deal than expected. Microsoft just announced it's going full-on hardware - the company announced a new tablet called 'Surface', and boy, is this thing something to behold. Microsoft's hardware partners? They're not happy right now. Update: Here's Microsoft's official Surface site. I believe someone coined the phrase 'sexy as a succubus' in the comments about Vizio? Stealin' it! Update II: They aren't just taking the iPad head-on - this is a straight-up MacBook Air competitor.

Yes, Lumia 610 and 710. Horrible build quality.


You conveniently neglected to talk about Lumia 900. I wonder why. Axe => grind.

Let's reconstruct the discussion points:
Morgan: "With the cheap plastic-y phones they've put out recently"
tomcat: "Have you ever played with a Lumia?"
jalexoid: "Yes, Lumia 610 and 710. Horrible build quality."

So unless they changed Lumia 610 and Lumia 710 names...

Nice attempt at limiting discussion to lower-end models, while not talking about the phone that is widely regarded as one of the best smartphones on the market, the Lumia 900.
