I'm curious to see if they present something that hasn't already been leaked, because as is there really isn't much wow factor. It's just a bigger phone... without a stylus :(

20 MP camera,1080p screen, and a quad CPU the fandroids been biatching about. the stylus part is funny since you I can use a key as a stylus on my 920(at your own risk), the screen is super sensitive(like alot of lumias)

Ugh don't believe the hype.

The hardware on these phones are ok but the software needs some real work. Video sharing is a nightmare (and or impossible) and typing on the keyboard is a real joyous occasion as well.

If you like DRM, restrictions, roadworks and red robots then you'll love the lumia range.

The 20MP camera is nice, but the 1080p screen and CPU are still just catching up. I know the Lumias are super sensitive and I love that mine works with gloves on, but it's still nothing like using an active digitizer with 1024 pressure points.

At this point, the phone doesn't bring much to the table that isn't already out there, unfortunately.
