    So, a device inferior to the Lumia 710 costs 1.5 times more?
    :befuddled:

    Of course sasktel got it first. No other provider wanted it lol

    The Lumia 710 is a POS. Unless the AWS carriers like WIND and Mobilicity can get the Lumia 900, the Radar is a good alternative.

    It’s better or worse than the Lumia 710. It’s worse in that the cpu is 1ghz instead of 1.5. It’s better in that it has a front facing camera. I would bet that the pricing difference is due to Nokia being a more powerful company than HTC and Nokia being a special windows phone partner for Microsoft.

    Worse than the Nokia Lumia 710? How? Slower processor is the only spec it loses out on. But adds the following that the Lumia 710 doesn’t have:

    Front facing camera
    Gyrosensor
    Internet sharing
    Aluminum body
    Hair bigger screen

    I take the subway 3 or 4 times a week to downtown Toronto… over the years I’ve only seen one person with a Windows Phone. Most of the people have BlackBerry, iPhone and now I see some Android phones. I’m hoping Lumia 900 will catch people’s attention.

    Nokia has it’s Drive navigation app (better than any other phone). And Nokia is a better PHONE, in that it gets far better reception than your HTC’s and Samsung’s.
    This alone beats the superficial added “features” HTC might have.

    The Samsung Focus that is available unlocked on Newegg.ca for $240 seems like a good deal vs the Radar, but as pointed out above, does not include a front Camera.

    Seems like quite a lot to pay for a crappy front facing camera

    I’m not going near a Windows Mobile phone by HTC with a 50 foot pole. Been there twice (SMT-5600 and Touch Diamond) and both times I was NOT happy.

    @B.W. I used to have the HTC S640 back in the day, and it was complete garbage, but I must say, Windows 7 OS is SO much better than the OS on the devices you and I used (Windows Mobile 6.5, I believe? could be wrong).
