    I have to agree. I dearly hope a bunch of these features will be ported back to 7.8. Let's face it - features like a wide range of accent colours will take next to no effort to implement. Bing lockscreen background can just take the image from search, or use the same methodology of search (ping Bing for a new image when the screen is accessed).

    Obviously, there are many additions which would be much harder, but even a handful of the features would go a long way to keeping the Lumia 800 & Omnia 7 chugging along.

    I know I will!

    Well about that...


    If you got the Lumia in a contract you have to suck it up until 2014, so he might as well throw it in the trash. (I'm kidding about the last part)

    I hope to see more in the 7.8 update also. I am leaving the carriers totally so it will have to be pretty awesome to get me to jump to 8 at full cost. Hoping my Titan II will tide me over but I want new features badly.

    I really need the data monitoring feature, that is a killer feature for me anyway!

    I just hope sprint is an launch partner or quickly comes aboard AND I pray the Nokia is under $700 off-contract. Any higher and it may be a no go until Lumias with pureview.

    Yes, 900 is basically a first gen phone.

    I'm waiting at least a year for unlocked devices to sink down to $200. Maybe I will wait longer since I'm pretty picky with my phones and would only buy something nicer than my Titan (4.7 in. & 9.8 mm thick).

    Currently, I am not seeing any phones out there (Android or otherwise) that I consider nicer looking than the Gen 1 Titan. I might have to wait a while since if there are no $600 phones much nicer, it'll be a while before there are any $200 phones that are nicer.

    The more features in 7.8 the better, but I hope they don't waste too much time working on an OS that we probably won't be talking about in one year.

    Whatever they can port back would be great, but I know for sure I will be holding a WP8 device sometime this year, or 1st half of next.

    I buy all of my phones used. Be patient and wait for someone to mess up. it takes time but I got my lumia 900 with all the stuff in the box and a case for $225 US in June before the announcement. I got my titan for $325 brand new. I refuse to extend contracts with these U.S. carriers.

    I'll probably wait for prices to fall a little, but my mother just got a Lumia 800. There are a bunch of WP8 improvements which could directly benefit her usage.

    They were all first Gen and Gen 1.5 phones, never second Gen. The upcoming devices are second Gen.

    At least in 2 yrs there will be some amazing devices to choose from. And those of us who get the first wave of WP8 devices may feel a tinge of jealousy if we're on contract.

    I guess I don't understand all the fuss. I bought the Lumia 900 when it came out. I even switched to AT&T just to get it. I knew WP8 was on the horizon and that the Lumia may not get the update. But I don't care. Will the new WP8 features be really, really cool? I'm sure they will, but I really wonder how many of those I will really be missing by still having the 900. I doubt very many. My only real concern would be to have Apps I would want to own come in a WP8 flavor only. Other than that, the Lumia is still a slick phone. It's fast, it's reliable, and I personally have no problem with the camera. Will I buy a WP8 phone before my contract is up? That's a real possibility, but I won't be buying one this fall. I'd rather spend the money on a Surface RT or Surface Pro tablet.

    I don't see the point: the Lumia 900 is a great smartphone, the best over there, if you also consider the apps Nokia included (Nokia Drive, etc).

    WP8 devices are not here yet, we only have a (leaked) emulator. it will take time to have a stable WP8 smartphone with plenty of apps that really take advantage of the underlying OS.

    do you want to wait having a black/white old phone or a shiny Lumia with all the best stuff you can actually have? you know the answer.

    as soon as you will have a WP8 device in your hands, this site will talk about rumors for WP8.5, the new iPhone OS and Android next generation devices, then you will start looking at your WP8 device as first gen again.

    yeah honestly I'll get a Surface RT first because more apps than either 8 or 7.8 will come out on it first. Plus there are things I do on my phone right now I'd rather have the Surface for (games) once I get a Surface I figure I'll just use my phone for calls, email and status updates.

    Honestly, the more I think about what I do with my phone, the more I believe WP 7.8 will be perfectly fine. I love the form factor of the 900 to the max. I was originally planning (even when i used my upgrade on the 900) to just purchase an off contract WP8 phone brand new because it makes me happy and give the lumia 900 to a family member who isn't as tech savy etc (try to get more WP converts :).

    Now though, I think WP7.8 will be more than enough for me. What I really want is a Windows Surface Pro version with all that WP8 goodness. As long as my zune pass is still around and skydrive works well on my phone then I really dont need an upgrade. I can't be alone on this.

    There is always something better on the horizon when it comes to smart phones. I love my 1st gen Samsung Focus. Then my father was up for a renewal, and he bouhgt a Focus S. Suddenly my Focus seemed woefully thick, and lacked things like the front facing camera, and more. Then the 900 launched, and I was itching to get one of those.

    In the end, I still have my Focus, and I am still happy with it. I will be up for contract renewal when WP8 launches. I'll be able to decide what I want at that time. And of course, after I get my WP8 device, the second gen of WP8 devices will have me clamoring for something newer and shinier. :)
