If you're waiting for McLaren you might wait quite a long time http://www.wpcentral.com/microsoft-kills-3d-touch-windows-phone-codenamed-mclaren worriedsmiley.gif
That being said, I'd say it's fair to assume there'll be another high end phone.

First impressions of Cyan...

The overall GUI has been tidied up some. The text is a bit smaller and the top indicators (service, time, wifi, etc) have also shrank and are not taking up as much real estate. I like this change.

Ahem... NO MORE MONOLITHIC SOUND!!! The volume for the ringer and notifications is now separate from media. 'Bout damned time.

You can now swipe back and forth between web pages (similar to the Back and Forward buttons on a browser. No longer are you limited to just going back.

Cortana is a fun little toy to play with. I have yet to fully explore the features though.

The built-in transparent tiles are a beauty.

More later as I figure more things out...

Waiting for my Lumia 925 update. I check daily. Meanwhile my 930 is in the mail from Europe... One way or another, I will have it.

This is so tempting to replace my 920 with a 930...
But it is sooo pricey http://www.omegacell.com/products/nokia-lumia-930-rm-1045

Hoping for high end in Canada soon smile.gif
