When it makes it to Verizon I will be one of the first in line. Been eligable for an upgrade since January 1st and am willing to wait for it. The 900 is sexy but hopefully it will be the 910 with the 12MP sensor.

You know come to think about it, that Windows Mobile 7 GUI sure does look a lot like LCARS. Cool.

I hope Nokia starts making Win phones for Verizon. I would definitely consider moving from my droid charge to Windows. I'm tired of the fragmentation on droid. AT&T is a deal breaker for me.

I wouldn't mind having one of these. It looks pretty nice. Too bad you can't get one on Virgin Mobile or some other prepaid. (Cell contracts are such a f__king rip-off.)

I had a chance to play with it at CES and it made me stop my plans to get Droid Razor's for my company. I was amazed by the progress made and the ease of use of Win Phone 7.5 as well as the seamless use of Office Apps. The negative is that I have no plans to go back to AT&T. I will therefore wait.
I got strong hints from both Verizon and Microsoft that waiting would be worth while. If however, you are on AT&T and happy with them I urge you to at least look at this phone before you get something else. At least look, you will be happy you did.

Peanut, there's no way that it will work on Verizon, ATT is GSM and Verizon is CDMA. They're completely incompatible. Nokia would have to release a new model with a rebuilt wireless radio.

Correct, but....not that big a deal and aparently already in the works.

That is not entirely true. LTE is a GSM based technology, and my current LTE Verizon phone has a removable SIM card just like my old T Mobile and ATT phone. Phone and Text likely wouldn't work, but I have unlimited data and could get away moving my calls and text over data. Then when I wanted or needed to I would still have my Android here.

I can't wait, though it sucks that it's only an AT&T release. Though AT&T was more of a risk taker even with the iPhone when it was first released. So Kudo's to Nokia for the awesome launch, 100$ is a good price for a phone.

I will be trying out WP7 this year when I can upgrade as long as a quality phone like this is on Verizon.

Love my current WP7 device. I think At&t still offers subsidized pricing after only a year if you lock in another two so come April I'll def pick up the 900 for a mere Franklin.

I would like my next phone to be a Windows phone. The only 2 things that have held me back are junky hardware and, if this phone turns out as promised, I won't have anything to do with AT&T.

If the 4G LTE will work on Verizon's network, I wouldn't mind buying one of these off contract to see if Windows Phone 7 is something I'd prefer over Android. I think it will be hard to give up some of the features of my current phone with Cyogenmod but I've always been interested in trying Window's Phone 7 since it's launch.
