It looks much better from those angles.
Because Windows is part of the total ecosystem, and the two OSes are likely to move closer and closer. Even Xbox One runs the Windows 8 kernel. Every article in WPCentral is now categorized, so you can filter for only WP-specific, and ignore Windows and Xbox articles.
physics comes in the way of using a big ass lens unfortunately. Check out photos of the galaxy camera and you should get an idea
I'm a little disappointed if this is the real deal. Looks just like the 920 with a big hole cut to accommodate a new cam module.
Just a random note, but the body of this (when you look at the other photoes also http://www.gsmarena.com/exclusive_leaked_photos_show_nokia_eos_from_every_angle-news-6167.php )
is actually based on the 900 shape and not the 920 ( I own both). the top and bottom are pill shaped (symmetrical front to back) not arced like the back of the 920. So its a thinner phone overall potentially.
Can't download, thanks to 'other' taking more than 5gigs of storage from me.. 14,8gb storage on my Ativ S, over 2gb for system, 7gb for apps & games and over 5gb for other. Way to go, microsoft!
Ps. Yes, i have Shrink Storage, and it helped me on the beginning. But now - even if i do it 6 times in a row, nothing happens..
The camera bump will be minimal once a wireless charging cover is snapped on. I just hope they're able to make it lighter than 920.

Takes up to much space on my phone, can't download it
RT doesnt have silverlight support, which drives me crazy cause its MS tech - some how, you can use the browser for HBO GO, ABC, ESPN, ABC, NBC, CBS streaming content.....but Time Warner's streaming relys on Silver$hite.
It is ridiculous, cable is expensive here in Canada and was running me $270 a month to get all HD programming, sports and movies. I cancelled my cable and bought a new car with my monthly savings, now I stream everything over internet.
Oh I did. Nevertheless we're talking EOS here. And new photos just surfaced...which unfortunately confirmed my opinion and fears regarding the design. :/
Yeah .. Lol
Double achievements any day
David Ray says:
Oh, good idea. Let me just run down to the bank and withdraw $500 (or however much a 925 cost) and go get a 925. Pure genious. Can't believe I didn't think of that sooner. /s
Not aesthetically pleasing big ol bump
Works fine on my Lumia 920
I love this phone
Vine app by Rudy is coming soon
Or Exceptionally Odd Shaped. :P

Keep the wp7 developments going - I'm on a contract until 2015 with my Lumia 800
Its not.. Nokia used the XX designation for the 808 as well. Its just there to hide the numbers
Yeah! One of the few places I can order a gluten free pizza.
It will be bigger for sure..
The 920 is already bigger in terms of volume ( 99 cc vs. 95.5 cc) and its also heavier than the 808.
The 808 is at 169 grams with a 4 inch screen and a tiny 1400 mAh battery.. they better use some really thin plastics in order to make up for the larger display and the bigger battery.

$1400 for an experiment is way too much.. Yes, an experiment.. The slider is not adjustable.. Besides, Sony screwed me over big time when they announced they wouldn't support older Vaio laptops with Windows 8 drivers. Had to spend hours configuring mine after I upgraded from Windows 7. Not giving them my money anytime soon.

got these photoshttp://www.gsmarena.com/exclusive_leaked_photos_show_nokia_eos_from_every_angle-news-6167.php
you complain on a free game when you guys with WP7.x got Chaos Ring, the Rabbid game from last week, Ms Explosion and many others that was WP7 exclusive?
Also, some old WP7 games still don't work on WP8 yet because of incompatibility. And don't forget the Nokia exclusives, you also have a few games (both on WP7 and WP8) that was Nokia exclusive before (parking mania, spy mouse, trivia pursuit and many more). Add all those to the collection.
Might as well buy a camera.
A retractable lens would explain how this phone is thinner then the 808 with the same camera (lens has to sit a certain distance from the sensor unless they went with a wider angle lens or smaller sensor).
Looks quite cool.
I got a 920 a month ago. No regrets. What are you going to fall back on while waiting for the EOS?
Suddenly, I'm not bulging anymore:-(
Actually its sensor is so much bigger then a normal point and shoot a zoom lenses would be way bigger (as in the distance from the sensor it would have to be for a telephoto effect on the telephoto side of the zoom). They could have gone with a p&s sized sensor and a zoom but I prefer better then p&s quality prime personally.
Yes! Finally a device with full sized keyboard, a stylus, good battery life, and decent specs. Now hopefully Sony has some sort of student discount or sale...
And this concerns windows phone because?
UGLY (my OPINION) TOO BIG
Most of Android and iOS games/apps are written in C++
WP 8 supports C++ so it's very easy to port a game and then just optimize it to run perfect.
The biggest mistake on WP 7.x is tha it only supports games/apps written in C# so to port a game from iOS and Android to WP 7.5 developers need to rewritte the whole app/game from the beginning something very annoying and lengthy.(That's the main reason that almost every 0.99$ iOS/Android app/game on WP 7.x costs 2.99$
MS made a big mistake with C#,C++ on WP7.x.
I owned HTC radar an amazing phone and sadly i had to upgrade to HTC 8x very fast because of the reason i explained to you!
Let's hope people on MS will learn from their noobish mistakes like this on WP 7.x and improve
That's what I was thinking but they have a little lense
I thought that dual core processor can only support up to 21-22 MP. You need Snapdragon 400/600/800 to support 41MP lens. So it is very interesting to find out what does XX means. We just have to wait and see on 7/9.
Harry Wild says:
Not for me! But I can see some people would want it as a camera phone!
To much thinking, I remember how many people hated the to hold control key on apple to show the right click menu....people hated that.....microsoft is starting to be like what apple use to be
I want this phone. Maybe in August.

its gonna be like another lumia 920 refresh. check out the page.
Because the industry dumbed down people thinking skinny is better and yet throw on big bulky cases like Otterbox or oversized battery packs and think that is "cool" *shrugs*
Scrolling isn't a problem... It's when you are trying to tap something really small, like a footnote reference number.
