I guess Ill round this out by saying, look toward SE if its compatible with your network, because their high end devices are (well, were) almost made like: Camera first, phone second. You'll see this by looking at some of their early design language, the phones looked like small digital cameras. Thats what you get from the Sony part of the (Sony Ericsson) deal, extensive knowledge of cameras.
Like I told my last wife, I says, Honey, I never drive faster than I can see. Besides that, it's all in the reflexes.
The tech industry is especially bad about this. People are so starved for information that they make up rumors, spread FUD and lies, and will instantly flood any site that has any sliver of information for them to consume ignoring any sense of reasonableness in the process. In some ways I miss the old days (my god, I'm saying that already ) when a product announcement was exciting. When we didn't already know all the details and we weren't disappointed by it because we got so excited about un-sourced rumors.
We live in a world of "I want it now" and I don't see that as a good thing.[/rant]
Remember when Microsoft debuts the Surface and then tells everyone that it ships sometimes in November?
I like this Nokia phone. From what I've seen, it has potential. It's a little late now that Android seems to be a bit more mature with app developers making money of paid apps. Anyone going to develop apps for a Windows phone?
Truth is that Apple needs Samsung more the Samsung needs Apple.

TSMC, I wouldn't depend on them after they messed up so many Nvidia chip orders in the past that caused massive recalls.
In fact, Samsung built the Texas factory specifically for taking Apple orders.
More crowded if you ask me. Every manufacturer had their own OS just about. RIM had its, iphone had ios, some used WM6, some used Palm, symbian....etc. I guess that could have made it easier for apple, not sure. Huge difference in the industry in just 5 years, thats for sure.
