    If it has all the windows features I've grown to need, in a phablet format, with Nokias brand on there, will ditch my android phone really quickly.

    I just want full Windows on a phone, and a "phone mode" enabled by default. Phones easily have 1080p displays these days so there is no reason not to give me a full OS on a phone other than battery life and storage of the OS files. Both of which can be overcome.

    Nokia's Mobile division is now Microsoft Mobile and they've already began releasing Microsoft branded handsets & rebranding certain Nokia apps...so why would you be expecting Nokia's brand to be on a future Windows Phone handset?

    Phones & tabets will share an ARM based OS (Windows RT & Windows Phone merged), similar to iOS for iPhone & iPad. For now ARM will remain the focus for phones. Of course we'll probably get another foreign company that will design an Intel based phone running Windows 10, x86 flavor.See the ITG xpPhone 2 and I-Mate Intelegent --- phones which both run x86 Windows 8.

    I've seen atoms powering small form factor tablets, why not an even smaller phone, doesnt sound too crazy and chinesse manufacturers have managed to cram some serious hardware into inexpensive tablets.

    Because that is my dream =)
