Hi there, I have been stalking the forums for a few days now and finally decided to sign up. I have been a loyal iOS user for over three years now and have stuck to my iPhone 4. I am now tempted, only for the sake of change, to try out a WP device.
So I thought to start with a big hello to everyone; love the layout of this website!

Thanks, everyone. @DBDev, aesthetically I am really attracted to the Lumia 925 as it looks very attractive. The reason for wanting to try it is that while I love iOS and Apple products, I feel Microsoft has taken a bold risk with Windows Phone 8 and it seems worth experimenting with. It would be nice to have a different screen layout to look at every morning and yes, I want a phone without too many apps as I intend to hold on to my iPhone for work email. Meanwhile, I can continue using Facebook, Linkedin and Bloomberg on my iPhone/iPad and yes, I want to see how I feel about a phone with a new OS that I will only use as a phone.
Blkacesvf41, I am in the UAE so carriers are not an issue as the trend here is for unlocked phones and subsidised plans are optional/rare. The 1020 looks interesting too and I don't mind spending money on it, whenever it comes out here, but as I said before, I find the 925 much more appealing aesthetically. On a different and lighter note, it is kind of amusing that I am conveying these thoughts on my Macbook Pro while Apple is bracing to launch a new phone in an hour. :) [Sorry, no nano-sim for me as changing phones in the future will require revisiting the carrier's outlet in a mall and asking for a replacement and I am too lazy for that!]

Welcome. I don't have anything to say about iOS as I don't use any apple products. But I will say I was with Droid from the very beginning. When I went to upgrade I had every intention to get a S4. Started playing with WP while waiting for a salesperson. I was hooked. Fresh UI smooth operations. If you look at it with an open mind and not a status symbol you'll like it WP.
