I really think that the htc zenith is a good device with quad-core.(supports 64 cores). But would rather wait for a Sammy device or a Nokia of course. So what do you think of the htc devices or should you rather get a Nokia or Sammy phone?

Any of them going to make a Dell Venue Pro style device with a great physical keyboard in portrait mode and a wider, 4.0"-4.1" screen to allow more room for that great keyboard? My choice #1.
Or a great 4.0" Droid style with THAT great keyboard? Or at least as nice as the Arrive keyboard? My choice #2.
Probably not? Too much to ask in this day and age? Sigh......
I will honestly give Sammy and HTC every chance to earn my money because I want to support diversity and competition as much as I can. I am VERY intrigued by the Zenith, but we have had SOOOO many problems with my Wife's Titan and so little support from HTC, I am worried. Sammy makes great phones, almost always last the entire contract period and work near perfect.
But, Nokia is Nokia, and their WP 8 devices will probably rule.
Crap, I don't know.
Just to confuse me, Casio will come out with a rugged WP on their G'Zone line, Sony will put one out with both XBOX Live and PS3 hubs, and Motorola will put out a Droid 4 WP. And actually call it that. And it will sell like hotcakes with whipped butter and that fresh, real maple syrup on them.
Too much pressure. I am starting to drink right now."Life is hard. But it is harder when you are stupid."

If something better doesn't come out then the HTC Zenith, I'm going for it. I've been involved with HTC since I have a DInc and I've had no problems with it. I want a phone with a big screen, dealing with this 3.7 screen is ridiculous. If Nokia prospers, and shows some new handsets.. then I'll take that plunge, but right now as it stands that Zenith is what I'm interested in.

All depends on carrier availability. Carrier first, OS second as they say.
Unless Nokia has a strategy involving providing access to as many carriers as possible I'll take what I can get on Sprint. Now that all carriers will be using LTE will it be easier for Nokia to do this?dumb phone > Palm Pre > Palm Pre+ > HTC Arrive> HTC EVO LTE > No more Windows Phones until WP gets Swype.

If Nokia comes up with WP8 PureView phone i will be in heaven. Got myself 808 PureView yesterday and it's insult for it to be compared to other phones in audio recording with rich recording and in camera department.
I'm still VERY doubtful Nokia will be able to do this on first wave and especially with the amazing 41MP sensor because of the hardware limitations, but damn i wanna see people using this sensor more.
GSMarena's long review pretty much tell everything you need to know about the sensor and the PureView tech.
"The Nokia 808 PureView is the best cameraphone ever made. End of story."

If Nokia totally fails on the hardware in this first wave it will be HTC. Never again Samsung after my experience with Galaxy S and their support.

I will see what Samsung does, and wait to see the finished HTC. But at the end of the day, if Nokia makes a Lumia with LTE and WP8 ON it I'll be happy. Which we all know that's what they will do.
Even better if it has a quad core.

I personally would wait for a Nokia with PureView or high hopes of a "Surface Phone" made by Microsoft ;-) but the zenith sounds legit, I would never buy a Samsung, its a garbage company with cheap materials. I sell phones and I hate pushing galaxy S phones, honestly we get more returns or exchanges with the Galaxy S....all generations than any other phone.

I am torn, I really like the Nokia PureView WP8 renders. It doesn't look as bulky as the 808. I will wait till it is released, unless some concrete info gets officially released that proves it is really thick. My only issue is that I really miss having an LED notification for missed calls/texts and from what I understand, HTC is the only one with that.
