Warehouse Stationary has a pre-order page for Samsung Ativ S now running with a free copy of Windows 8 Pro upgrade for buyers.

A lot of stuff was not shown today like USB mass storage in explorer when the phone is plugged in to a Windows machine. Waiting for Lumia 920 to launch so I can hurry up and buy it.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Why the Lumia 920 over the Samsung Ativ S? Something I should know? They both look okay, but non-expandable storage on the 920 may be an issue. Anything it does better than the Samsung?




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Has anyone got the skinny as to when / if the WP8 devices with be available in NZ and with what carriers?

Someone needs to get state side and bring back some (unlocked) Lumina 920s!

Lumia 920 32GB should be enough for me with Xbox Music Pass streaming etc, I really like the Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive apps, image stabilized camera is pretty neat, wireless charging.

All of what Nathan said and the fact that it's 4.5" size screen in comparison to 4.8" on the Ativ S which I am not too fond of.

The 920 is a nice looking device. Waiting on the Telecom release announcement now I guess..

Another +1 for the Lumia 920.

I currently have a Lumia 800 and love it.

You could always try Launcher 7 on your android in the meantime - haha Wink
