Ok, I'll be the one to bite....

 

The Nokia / Microsoft partnership is exactly that - a partnership.  Any sparkle Nokia adds to the platform (on the software side) is a plus for both parties and sells devices. 

 

Microsoft's efforts on moving the OS forwards to the same Kernel as Windows is the major underlying change that they've brought this time around, to bring the development in-line with 'desktop' and allow the app market to grow. Whilst Nokia have clearly pushed the boundaries of improving the hardware every way possible.

 

I'm looking forward to availability and from reading comments across the web, so are plenty of others.  Would the same level of excitement around this phone and the features be true if they were still releasing their devices on Symbian?  Windows Phone 8 moves the platform on to allow the sparkle to shine.

 Very fair point - I wasn't thinking of the apps, more of the fragmentation of the OS itself.

From my understanding the Lumia 900 will get the WP7.8 update that brings the new interface and some of the features of WP8.

 

Microsoft have already stated that the only reason they won't get WP8 is because these *older* phones won't support the NFC features they've built into the new OS - so there is little point in allowing this update to be installed.  I don't really see what is wrong with that?  Why install software that you'll never get any benefit from?

 

The fragmentation of OS versions here will be very minor compared to Android.  Microsoft's move to WP8 as its underlying base for future Phone OS versions will reduce this fragmentation further.

I'd really, really like this post to be wrong.

Nokia is a great little company that have done amazing things over the years in the mobile industry - I mean, who hasn't owned a Nokia handset at some point?!

Only in the "modern age" have they faltered and  I sincerely hope this is simply a blip rather than a catastrophe.

I do love "Why Isn't This News", it makes me laugh that T-shirts have to be given away for those that watch it all the way through.

No show like it anywhere else!
