    Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing. I just can't see myself waiting until the end of 2013 for a very last, best dressed (ever) Blackberry (*sigh* even though, I think the new 2.0 Blaberry tablet is the sh**tsky). It hard because I have a BES. This Nokia device looks like the perfect compliment to my Windows ecosystem. Am I deluded?

    I have had an upgrade available since May 2011. I kept waiting for the BB10 devices, since RIM said they were "coming soon". At this point, I'm done waiting, and I'll probably get the Nokia Lumia 900 as soon as AT&T gets it. I used Nokia before I used BlackBerry, and Nokia always had solid hardware with excellent build quality.

    The Lumia 800 is a gem. The 900 will probably outclass all smartphones available presently - I'm talking hardware.I hope with this Nokia series the sale value holds up, and so the resale value. Nokia suffers terribly with this, unlike the iPhone and some, very few others.Regarding the Mango OS, its a wait and see how it evolves. The os on the 800 is captivating as is.It can only get better.

    Nope. Just be patient I say. The Windows eco-system and subsequently Win 8, will open a new door so we all (the majority still) will have the pleasure to have a seamless environment as well.

    How long are your contracts?

    How much does it cost if you pay full retail?

    Contracts are 2 year. Full price at 699,90 Euros.
    I'll wait and get one in 2nd hand market. Probably a month. There's always someone that, for some reason, sells it. I'll probably shave 200,00 Euros off the price.
    Remember when I said that Nokia's resale value goes down quite considerably? Either because the carriers discount it heavily after a month or two, and even retail drops.
    Edit: To give you an example: The N9 is selling already at 299,00 Euros. that's a mighty wallop. The Lumia 810 is down to 350,00 Euros.
    Well, lets wait and see.

    The "calls" package is normal. At least I consider it so.I pay 49,90 Euros monthly. It covers all my calls for Vodafone and any carrier + land-lines. It caps at 5000 minutes per cycle (1 month). Overseas calls cost .15c per call to Europe and .45c for the rest of the world (per minute). Sms and mms are bundled in, with a monthly limit of 5000. It also includes LTE or 4G (50Mb), unlimited GB with no slow-down.It's the initial cost of a smartphone that is exorbitant.

    That is not bad at all. The initial cost is ridiculously expensive, though.
