    If the market wants 1080p. Then you make 1080p. Costs HTC, Samsung,Nokia etc. less when they use an Android 1080p display also in a WP8 phone.

    No. You decide on what your primary goals are and how you intend to offer more value to all stakeholders than your competition. Then you execute that strategy. And you stick with it, at least until you've implemented it half way. You don't go making major strategical shifts at every little pothole. Otherwise you end up behaving like a drunken sailor, stumbling about every time some little thing, like 1080p displays, pops up on your path.

    WP has never been about chasing the latest hardware, neither has iOS, but that pretty much sums up the entirety of Google's strategy with android.

    The frustrating thing is MS's slow pace of strategy execution, but the strategy itself is sound.

    What they released as WP8 is what WP7 should have been.

    this i think is very true, i admit to sitting on the sidelines for a long while, watching, thinking that's smart but not there yet. When new hardware was released for wp8 i decided it was time. The s3 was tricked out but still not as enjoyable to use as this, i think they have got a good balance hardware wise. They have done enough to be competitive with the change of software and hardware on so far as making future proof. They just need to crank it up on software, tidy ot up, release some kick *** games. For the love of god they make xbox, tap into it properly not half arsed. And as much as they say they have top 47 apps its simply not enough.

    It will get you there it wont keep you there. Its enough for now but it needs pushing harder, we bought a kick *** smartphone not a kick *** feature phone and unless it gets more apps that's what it will become.

    They have done the hardest part now just sell it and expand, we will wait but not forever.

    I had a look at the Nokia 820 with SAMOLED on it and compared it with the htc 8x and I think the htc 8x display look natural and better looking whereas the 820 is over saturated just my opinion I also had a look at the SONY T it look good but I prefer the Window phone 8 interface.

    820 isn't super AMOLED its AMOLED touchscreen with resolution of 480x800 pixel while HTC 8x is Super LCD 2 with resolution of 720x1280 pixel

    Well, I think you have your answer then. I like the inky blacks on OLED more than I dislike the oversaturated colors, but I totally get that you may prefer the opposite. Stick with LCD's. ;-)

    WP7 never used the S3. No WP7 device ever had anything more powerful than a single core S2. That just goes to show what Microsoft's standardization policy allows them to trick out of the hardware.

    sorry i wasn't clear, i meant the galaxy s3, that what i had before coming to windows, a true powerhouse of a phone, but it still could never run as smooth as any of the wp8 phones

    I'm use to LCD more but it was weird when I look at the 820 it just didn't look right than I saw the s3 and note 2 it look miles better I think it was due to resolution and the screen tech in both of them are more up to date (I know the s3 and note have different SAMOLED tech s3 pentiles and note 2 being like the s2 SAMOLED Plus matrix i think ).

    I feel like buying the SONY but I want Windows Phone 8 interface (must try to stop an impulse buy )

    Anyway waiting to May to buy my next phone I see whats coming out (damn those SONY phones look sexy )
