Weird eh, my Xperia Pro was running very well on single core scorpion at 1ghz. Now that's what I call a flexible OS, runs well on both single and dual and quad, and does so on any resolution, including 2560x1600.

Nokia may be finding themselves on another burning platform in the North Sea if this is true. WP8 was released just weeks ago and WP9 is far far away. It's not gonna be possible to launch a flagship at less than full HD in 2013 so let's hope MS is working on a patch already if it's possible to patch it. Then again, Nokia is probably happy selling only a million flagship phones off each generation, lumia 900 didn't even sell that many =)

> In reply to [deleted post]yes dear liar, did you ever saw even a review of them or just paid by microsoft!??even gsmarena called jellybean as bread and butter! in your dreams it is very laggy of course ! lol! your wp8 reboots by itself , has no multitasking with true functionality like android , has no apps, is very closed and limited and so on! and cannot run with other than dual core because it is very heavy because of no reason and it is not at all power efficient while android phones even sony midranges are far better! test xperia t vs your lumia whatever it is and you will see the same smoothness! ( xperia t or optimus g or nexus 4 are far higher than any phone ever)

Wow, Microsoft just nailed their coffin. Seriously, their 'flagships' will be equal to Android lower mid ends in 2013, and I mean it literally.

Probably a smart move. They should let momentum gather, and let WP8 get stronger before taking risks on uncertain models. HTC doing so far with WP8 sales.

That's like giving an unfair advantage to Android...
Good job Microsoft, you just nailed your coffin!
