Too bad I'm on a line with about 5 other people, and I can't wait any longer, contemplating waiting until I know for sure that Verizon isn't offering an Ativ S or just ignore it and get a HTC 8X, more DECISIONS!
Hmmm, prob something like bluetooth adaptor for the wireless music, I picked up a logitech music bluetooth thing to attach to my stereo, but still have to get a new set of speakers. gahh but i do really like the ativ s, what disappoints me about the 920 is that its suppose to be really heavy (equivalent to 33 quarters from my calculations) and also pretty thick frown.gif the 8x is equal to about 23 quarters. (i had some time last night biggrin.gif )

Although i had no idea that the 8x lacked a gyroscope O_o . *sigh* I dunno IMO ive noticed that each phone seems to have one fault, due to compromise, that prevents its from being the perfect phone. Although i bet the next batch of phones will be pretty nice, cant really wait another year >_<. I dunno you going to swich networks? or your sticking with Verizon? seems like the odyssey could be the verizon version of the ATIV s but the HSPA+ does make it seem most likely i would think the ativ s will goto t-mobile.

Although if you can wait another 6 months, att exclusivity will end for the lumia 920 supposedly redface.gif

Well I'm on T-Mobile now, but yeah I'm going to switch to Verizon when my contract is up(Nov 8th), I technically don't want to go to Verizon, but the area I moved to Verizon is the only provider that has coverage sigh... Well if the 8X is .23 and the 920 is .33 thats definitely not a huge difference while holding is it? My HD7 was something like 162g(Which is I believe .35) the extra weight made it feel very solid and sturdy, granted my HD7 will be heavier by only a small margin I never felt it a pain or hard to hold for a large duration of time though. I've seen some people say it lacks a gyroscope and others claim it doesn't, HTC website doesn't say it has it or it doesn't, unlike other phones which I think is why people are claiming it doesn't but Endgaget says it does however, I'd imagine it would, seems ridiculous to not include one to me. Well Verizon is suppose to get the phones by thanksgiving and everyone on my line is kind of just waiting on me, but I think I might just get the HTC 8X or see if I can buy a Nokia 822 outright and maybe see if I can salvage my 'Upgrade' or something and get something better in Q1-Q2, unless its more than 300 or they won't allow me to so.

hmm well i would hope it does >_< seem weird if the 8x didnt have a gyro. But att reliesed their pricing today seems most phones are about $100 range ($49-199), i believe off contract the phones are about $599 list price. hah but my GF is now in a similar boat as you. she refuses to get a 920 since im going to get it (and calls it a crap phone? frown.gif ) She was going to get a 8x but hates the blue color since it reminds her to much of purple, so she cant decide between the 820 or the 8x tongue.gif

She's obviously just jealous you picked the better phone, my girlfriend got a HD7S on AT&T when it released but she gets to update anytime she wants to(Her mom works at the AT&T office) but I don't think she likes her windows phone I may or may not have pressured her into getting, she's stuck on a couple apps that are now just coming out and etc, but I still have no idea what to get figured I'd wait until I can hold both phones then decide.

Off topic, my trusty Vertex 2 finally died, got it about 3 years ago, yesterday and it died today <_< ONE DAY out of warranty I wonder if OCZ will be awesome guys and overlook that and help me out, and then my Windows XP/7 disc are saying its corrupt frown.gif getting the shaft here.

, she has a tendys to be like that at times (along with being a htc fangirl ) >_<. OH MAN upgrades all the time, thats pretty cool! but hmm.. im sure she would have changed her phone if she really didnt enjoy it that much since there been a bunch of penny upgrades over the least year for different phones (since she can upgrade anytime?) tongue.gif

Def try using it first since your on the fence, i heard also some of the shells on the lumia can be pretty slippery (glossy ones). The lumias are going to be instore friday at ATT so you could always stop by for an idea of what the 820 is like. I have a feeling if my GF wont be able to get over the purple on the 8x so probably going to go with the 8gb yellow one or ... the 820 (which i feel is likely) . Although honestly both are good phones so cant go wrong ether way biggrin.gif

Gah! thats def no good, last time i had that happen.... 2-3 months ago i thought it was my C300 drive but it turned out to be a dead marvel sata controller on my rig. But i would def contact them, worst they can say is no .. but that would be a real slap in the face if they did.. My first ssd was a vertex (original series) never gave it a chance to die frown.gif i lost it somehow/somewhere before that could happen

Wondering if you pros can answer a question. Nokia has always been great with implementing hepatic feedback in their keyboards. Will the nokia lumia 920 have hepatic feedback on that keyboard as well? I've done a search on review sites and all, but couldn't find the answer to this since it seem to be too basic for them to cover. Everyone just wanna talk about the tiles and the camera.

I think mostly I'll get the 8X just because I feel like I'm getting some sort of high end device, I don't think I've ever heard of some being a HTC fangirl/boy <_< go figure thought everyone was pretty much Samsung or die, and maybe upgrading anytime isn't the best thing to say, but she may keep a phone for about 6 Months or a year or so, and its more likely that she may actually like the phone, but is upset that she doesn't have pandora and some games all her friends have and she doesn't rather, which is understandable in the least, knock offs and work arounds don't matter when you can't play it with your friends I guess.

I'm not sure what you mean by hepatic feedback.

.
Its a nice phone and has some nice hardware biggrin.gif i was talking to some of the ppl at Att today and apparently they already have the 8x in stock in the back o_o at least in my area. Hah but yeah friends/apps could be a major factor for choosing a platform, my cousin really wanted to play (.. i think it was) farmville with her friends so she went android she said. tongue.gif i will admit i am a huge samsung fan >_> TV's and monitors for as long as i can remember. Hmm ever get the SSD thing figured out? redface.gif

Random:
But i had a chance to play with the nokia windows 8 phones and the OS is really nice, snappy and zippy as always and the "new" home screen IMO looks much cleaner with the ability to resize apps with multiple rows now. Although there didnt seem to be as many camera options as i remember there used to be.. anyways the 920 was actually lighter then what i thought it would feel like, i think its mostly because i thought it would weigh more with its size, but it is still pretty bulky (almost looks twice as think as my dads iphone 5 (?). Still didnt see a forward button in the browser. But overall the OS seems like a MUCH more refined version of WP7 mango, with a good amount of tricks up its sleeve.

hmmm well to my knowledge theres no tactile feedback for when your typing, only when you touch the three "hard" buttons on bottom. I could be wrong but i didnt notice an option in WP8 (or my other 3 WP7 phones) to turn any vibrate feature on for the keyboard frown.gif

Damn that would suck. Hepatic feedback from using they keyboard during texts and emails was one of the great features of nokia phones.

Hmm ever get the SSD thing figured out? redface.gif

But i had a chance to play with the nokia windows 8 phones and the OS is really nice, snappy and zippy as always and the "new" home screen IMO looks much cleaner with the ability to resize apps with multiple rows now. Although there didnt seem to be as many camera options as i remember there used to be.. anyways the 920 was actually lighter then what i thought it would feel like, i think its mostly because i thought it would weigh more with its size, but it is still pretty bulky (almost looks twice as think as my dads iphone 5 (?). Still didnt see a forward button in the browser. But overall the OS seems like a MUCH more refined version of WP7 mango, with a good amount of tricks up its sleeve.
hmmm well to my knowledge theres no tactile feedback for when your typing, only when you touch the three "hard" buttons on bottom. I could be wrong but i didnt notice an option in WP8 (or my other 3 WP7 phones) to turn any vibrate feature on for the keyboard frown.gif

I got a couple friends I bullied into getting a 920, and they seem to love it thus far, I didn't even think to look in the browser for a forward/back button but I think their should be one. I want to be a Nokia fanboy, but I just don't like the 822 on Verizon the phone looks exactly like a HTC Trophy, and then I don't like the 8X(First world problems :sarcasm:) but enough of that I'm going to get the 8X, and in the 30 days if I hate I'll get a 822, I had went into the store and they said they would ship me a Blue/Red/Black 8X on Wednesday the 13th if I hurried and made a contract with them, so I figured I'd probably have the phone by Friday or Monday if not on Saturday.
Also I never did get the OCZ thing situated I'm waiting on them to respond and they finally wrote me back yesterday night, so I guess I want hear anything until Monday since its the weekend now. Did you end up getting a 920 and your girlfriend her 8X by the way yesterday, if so what are your thoughts, I know you said you played with the devices, but I was just wondering if you had the phone what you thought about it now after a couple of hours with it.
