Not me. I honestly was not too impressed by it.

Most of my direct reports want them.

I'll wait for the Samsung ATIV S Windows 8 phone.

I actually will be impressed if the battery life is as good as they say it is, and 7.6mm is nothing to scoff at for thickness either. I'm also happy that it is not any wider.

Yeah, that phone does look sick. I actually would get a Lumia 920 if there was a VZW version.

I would be impressed with that battery life too, especially on LTE. However, in real-world use, I can't imagine that is the case. We will find out next week, I suppose, but I think the early reports will be the battery life is less than expected, mainly because people will be playing with the device more than usual. Also, I agree with the thickness is nothing to scoff at. Other than adding LTE and changing the form factor a little, it doesn't seem like too much of an improvement from the 4S. Sure it has an A6 Processor, but it has the same camera as the 4S, just thinner, has a new cord, to assist with making the device thinner, but, to me, it doesn't really sell me as a huge upgrade.

Having said that, I think it is a solid device, but I am in the same boat as NJBB.

The new Lumias (sorry for polluting a thread about the iPhone) are extremely heavy. That's a big no-no for me.

The iPhone 5 will still sell like hot cakes...

If nothing else, I'm jealous of the camera. Any pictures my 9700 takes look like Impressionist paintings.

I'm still on the fence. No NFC is a disappointment. No simultaneous voice and data over LTE for CDMA networks blows too.

If NFC existed (or I really felt I needed it) it would be a big deal. I'm sure it will become big one day, but the retailers need to get onboard first.

I am in this boat as well, however I was looking forward to seeing Apple market it. I am sure if they would have, it would have sped up the process of retailers getting on board.

There will be simultaneous voice/data on LTE, but still not on EVDO.
