Anybody else excited about Catwalk?
I'm actually slightly more keen to see Catwalk revealed than EOS. Mostly because i just want compact device with no nonsense, iPhone of the Windows Phone world. Couple of years ago I would have wanted the device with everything inside, but after iPad (now Vivo Tab) my phone use has transformed to be more of a tool than media device.
Also i'm sucker for great looking and feeling devices and i'm really interested to see how the aluminium Catwalk ends up.
Planning to do the switch from Lumia 920, though certainly still keeping Lumia 920.

I'm also quite anal on really high quality feeling devices and always been huge fan of Nokia's designs (like N9/L800, N8 old E series devices etc) so i can't wait to see what they do with aluminium phones once again.

I don't like phones that are too thin...it seems uncomfortable to hold - specially the big ones D:
That's why i love my 620...yeah its chubby compared to today's piece of paper but feels solid and great in hand!
Geez thinner is better has also hit smartphone world D: that's sad, cause it kinda of reflects our society >.<

If the leaked dimensions on the catwalk are correct, the phone will feel just right with a nice silicone case on it

Yes, and no.
A new high-end phone? Yes, I'm excited! But the rumors point to it being the same old dual-core + 1GB RAM -combo, which is really last years spec. It's a fine spec, but will lose spec-to-spec -comparisons against rivals, and makes it less future-proof at this point. I'd be fine with dual-core, but I'd want at least Adreno 320.

Whats happened is most websites have failed to research properly and have posted 928 specs as 'catwalk'. This has a domino effect on other websites, then becomes the 'accepted true catwalk spec'.
Nokia know the 920 is behind on specs, so will likely boost them in catwalk. It wont be a massive leap as WP8 doesnt need it. However CPU+A320 is more than enough to keep it competitive.

Trends come and go. At the moment people are more open for the device expend everywhere else, than adding mm or two on thickness. I don't personally really care how thick the phone is in general, but super thin aluminium Nokia fascinates me for some reason.

SO my next question is: I really would like to see the Catwalk soon, but I am jonesing to switch to WP8. Now I need to know if I should take the plunge now and possibly covet the catwalk when it comes out, or wait for the catwalk, even though we dont know when it is going to be released.
I have another post on the WP8 section with another question. First, my issue was should I go to WP8 from ios 5. Then it was should I get 8x or 920. Now its shopuld I get 920 or wait for catwalk. This is ridiculous.

I'm excited about the Catwalk. My best friend and I were discussing it last night and she said she's interested in getting it to upgrade from her currently Lumia 710. I may just hold onto my 810 for awhile yet since I only got it in November, but I definitely want to see the Catwalk up close and personal.

Catwalk has always been referred as Lumia 920 replacement, EOS in a other hand as successor. EOS will likely come alongside with the next OS update among HTC's new flagship, like Lumia 920.

There is nothing out there that can match the 808 - see PureView Club: The PureView Community for photos info etc. on the 920 and 808...
And yes you will get HSPA or 3.5G as its shown on the 808... I cant comment about TMo though, as i use ATT, and i think their data speed is not that good here in Houston.

Thanks for the reply. I have read that they may have trouble switching between 3g and 3.5g and it was a problem that was likely to happen more on At&T. Have you had any issues like that. Lots of times things get blown out of proportions on the internet.

Having said that, battery life is pretty good, i can have it last about 2 days, where i talk on skype for about 30 to 45 mins each day, using 3g and then use wifi when im home for the occasional surfing or playing music etc and of course practice using that camera.
