poll

Now that AT&T and Best Buy have online pages for pre-ordering the coveted Nokia Lumia 1020 today (we’re still waiting on Microsoft Store), the question is have you put in your order?

Take our poll, let us know your plans. We’ll make sure to have a launch party celebration in 10 days for this device, which should garner a lot of headlines and ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ from passersby’s on the street.  (If on your smartphone, head to m.wpcentral.com/poll-did-you-pre-order-your-att-nokia-lumia-1020 to participate!)

Yesterday, Microsoft took the wraps off of the much discussed Windows 8.1 “preview edition” for your current Surface Pro, 32 or 64 bit system. The process was supposed to be simple, with a downloaded file and a trip to the Store. Indeed, the installation was easy, but the line for the server was getting hammered on early in the day.

Here at mobile HQ for Windows Phone Central, myself and Sam Sabri updated no less than five devices to Windows 8.1, because hey, we’re excited. From the Acer R7, to the little 8-inch Iconia to two Surface Pros we plowed through the process. (Build attendees were given USB flash drivers with the installation files onboard, making the process super simple).

Hopefully you watched our Live Blog of Microsoft’s “next generation” Xbox One announcement today, if not, just check out our continuing coverage here.  

Assuming you did, what do you think? The bar was set a bit low with Sony’s PlayStation 4 announcement with many in the industry smirking that all Microsoft had to do was show their new console. But jokes aside, did Microsoft impress you? Is the Xbox ONE what you hoped it would be and do you think it’ll succeed?

Okay folks, it's time for another quicky reader poll! Today's topic: the Lumia 925.

We can already tell this one is causing some divisions, with those thinking its not a worthy Lumia 920 upgrade (even though it's not positioned as such) and those who finally have a reason to get a flagship Nokia (or even the opportunity, hello T-Mobile!).

Which camp do you fall into: hit or miss? Take the poll and let your voice be heard.

Do you like the new Nokia Lumia 925?

Nokia ran a poll on its blog last week, asking consumers which of the different lock screen features they valued most. Whether it's the notifications, the background images or locking the Windows Phone with a passcode, visitors had the selection of three to choose from. The team has now published the results, which aren't entirely surprising.

You may be aware of the HTC One that was announced today. The Android smartphone is HTC's next high-end device that's tasked with halting the company sinking further down. As many of our readers know, HTC also manufactures Windows Phones. We've already taken a quick look at both the specifications of the HTC One and camera capabilities, comparing it to Windows Phone 8 hardware.

A recent YouGov survey shows 45 percent of Nokia mobile device owners would recommend the product to a friend and promote the hardware to others. The independent study illustrates an 18 percent climb compared to last year, as well as a 4 percent drop in those who would not recommend their Nokia mobile phone, down to 33 percent.

We had our say, now you have yours. The question is a bit loaded for a Windows Phone site, after all we’re guessing some of you are fans of Microsoft’s OS, but it is a legitimate question.

Windows Phone 8 has not set the world afire despite positive reviews and word of mouth. Is that because it’s not good enough or because Android and iOS are just too far ahead?

If it’s the former, does BlackBerry 10 fill that roll? If it’s the latter does BlackBerry even have a chance?

Click below for a few polls on the matter. Moible? Just head to m.wpcentral.com/polls-blackberry-10 to take them on your phone.

In our forums an interesting discussion has begun regarding the attention some people are getting with their new Windows Phone, specifically with people coming up to ask what kind of phone thou art wielding.

Case in point, when we were recently traveling to San Francisco we were brandishing our appropriately titled California Blue HTC 8X and we had multiple instances of people inquiring and fawning over our phone. Yes, it’s the color that lures ‘em in and the Tiles that pique their interest. Personally, we hadn’t experienced that much attention to our phone in public in a long time, if ever.

With the U.S. Presidential Elections right around the corner, we felt the need for a Windows Phone poll to get people in the mood to cast a vote.  Not wanting to get into politics too much, we're curious which Windows Phone 8 handset listed in our poll is fit for presidency? Which would you elect to be our spokesperson for the Windows Phone nation?

The feature packed Nokia Lumia 920? How about the light-as-a-feather HTC 8X? Are you a fan of the silent but deadly looking Samsung ATIV S? If you had the chance to vote for one, which would you elect? This is a lighthearted poll to run alongside the U.S. elections that are currently ongoing.

Did you pre-order a Surface RT today?

With the day winding down, impulse buys having already taken place and even Microsoft stock even getting low (more on that in a bit), we want to know…did you pre-order the Surface RT?

(Personally speaking, I’m waiting to buy on in a Microsoft Store because of my lucky geographical location. But if there weren’t one near me, I certainly would have pre-ordered. One caveat though: I’m not too thrilled with the “just black” option for the 64GB, something for which I hope to avoid in-store. You?)

Too much or just right?

This morning Microsoft announced the pricing of the Surface RT tablet, which will come in at $499 for the 32 GB base price with the keyboards coming in extra. If you opt for a 64GB version with a Touch Cover, you’re looking at $699.

So far, reactions have been mixed as most people were expecting something more dramatic for the price (and those earlier $199 rumors of course did not help). We’re okay with the price because we know Microsoft could not undercut their OEM partners who would have surely bailed on making their own tablets if Microsoft was going to exploit their obvious advantage.

We recently ran a few polls to help us gauge what you thought of the Lumia 810 v the 820 and what Lumia 920 colour you’d be going for.

We have all had much to digest in the last month or so, new models, specs, colours and even variations on a theme. If these polls are anything to go by it looks like your choices  aren’t easy to predict. Read on to see how it breaks down.

The Lumia 810 (left) versus Lumia 820 (right)

With the announcement of the T-Mobile Lumia 810 and its slight hardware redesign, a lot of comments seem to have users prefer its look over the Lumia 820—the device it was based off of.

So we put forth the simple question: which do you think looks nicer? And if you don’t know or have no preference, you can say that too.

Poll closes in 48 hours. Head to m.wpcentral.com to vote on your mobile. Poll after the break...

Which Lumia 920 would you choose?

The Lumia 920 is Nokia's flagship Windows Phone, and is the most advanced smartphone running Microsoft's mobile operating system to-date. Sporting PureView technology, a 4.5" display with PureMotion+ HD goodness, dual-core chip, and wireless charging, it's a powerful device.

Not only that, the Lumia 920 comes in a variety of colours (depending on availability in markets). But which colour would you choose?

Our poll results show Nokia still riding high

Windows Phone Central conducted a poll over the weekend about which “hero” Windows Phone 8 device readers were yearning to make their own. And although carrier offerings will ultimately affect user choice, word on the street is that a lot of these flagship phones will be widely available on launch in early November.

With this poll, we had the largest turnout of respondents, resulting in some solid data. The question of which is the most desired Windows Phone 8 device is quite stark and will make for some interesting discussion on Windows Phone 8, OEMs and where the market is headed.
