PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Stephen Elop only has a few months to show he can turn Nokia around if he is to survive but the new smartphone is unlikely to woo customers back from Apple and Samsung. Investors and analysts say the chief executive has until early 2013 to prove he made the right choice by partnering with Microsoft Windows or his future at the loss-making company will be called into question." Well, I'll be doing my part. I'm buying a 920.

I've always liked Nokia hardware: they're sturdy, Nokia has never been afraid of trying new features, they were not afraid of trying new looks and so on.
...
With the move to Windows Phone Microsoft is saying what features must be there and what mustn't, and they're saying quite a lot about the looks, too, something that I view as a very sad development.

And still, the Lumia 920 got more praises for their hardware specs (wireless charger, camera, screen/glass, unibody build, etc.) which have been developed in-house than for the WP8 that is running on.

Cause all the WP8 devices out there including Samsung and HTC are the same on the software-front thanks to Microsoft's customization-limitations. The only thing that is different are the hardware-specs and as such anyone focus on them. For the software you just write a generic Windows article what Microsoft offers and attach the info that Samsung, HTC, Nokia and others ship that.
