I wouldn't buy anything like an Unlocked Nexus or International device because of the lack of LTE on AT&T.

    So the Lumia will still launch with 32GB storage, and people like me won't be at the mercy of AT&T or Verizon (or whoever) for whether or not they can get 25GB+ cloud storage "for two years" (25GB SkyDrive for life :-) ). It'll still have a better screen. It'll still have a better camera unless HTC pulls off a miracle before then. And really "twice as powerful CPU" probably means something to you as an Android user but WP7 had no issues performing great on S2 chips so that's a pretty useless spec to rave about when comparing these two operating systems. We all see how WP7.5 runs on S2 processors, while Android lagged and stuttered all over the place on the same hardware (even had updates to phones cancelled because of performance issues, etc.).
    The screen is debatable. No reviewers have declared it better at this point. What is a fact is that it's thinner, lighter, more powerful and will launch before the lumia.

    If you've seen Nokia's clearblack screens just bump up the resolution and the quality should be comparable. It will be superior to the SLCD 2 in the One X.

    The camera will still be better (you skipped that).

    More powerful really doesn't matter on WP8, the S4 will be more than enough just like the S2 is more than enough on the L900. Android needs all it can get though, I understand.

    And whether it launches before the Lumia is a complete non-factor, because anyone considering the Lumia won't get the HTC One X+ instead, since they run different OSes. They will simply wait :-)

    HTC needs to get their flagship Windows Phones out if they want to get the jump on Nokia there, and I don't think they're good enough to warrant NOT waiting for Nokia to launch their handset...

    The screen is still just a guess. Looking at the tech behind clearblack it's 6 of one half dozen of another. They took two different paths to the same result. Eliminate air gaps to reduce glare. Even the new iPhone screen is only just as good as the One X screen with all its fancy nomenclature. I expect it to be a wash, and that's if the Nokia screen can go as bright as the One X.

    Cameras will need to be tested, but I've been impressed by the IMS and if lowlight performance is as good as they say that'll be nice. But image quality still needs to be compared.

    Processors won't matter because of the way WP8 runs. Twice the power on am android phone doesn't mean the android phone will be twice as fast.

    It will be important for many WP8 apps. The OS may run smooth, but you can guarantee there will be plenty of WP8 apps that will require all the juice you've got. Trying to say it doesn't matter how powerful your CPU is with WP8 is just not accurate.

    If the S4 can run the One X smoothly, it'll be ok running WP8.

    I don't know why he finds that hard to believe. That really doesn't even factor in though, since anyone considering WP8 will be comparing the Lumia to the 8X and Ativ S not any One X variant in the decision making process. People choose platform before considering hardware, typically.

    Well I happened to have an upgrade and with the $99 and free wireless charging dock right now I purchased one yesterday. I still have my OneX too. So far most of the things that caused me to return the lumia 900 have been resolved. Will see after a bit of time. I am having problems with is the twitter live tile so far. Words with friends (which I play with family daily) is now on Windows too for $2.99 without ads. The app isn't working as smoothly like androids or IOS (I also have an iPad). I also do not like the Facebook app as well, but the built in integration of Facebook in the people hub is great. I love the dedicated camera button too. I am a bit bummed they don't have an app for Dropbox and have to figure out how best to access my music from google and Amazon. It is a bit odd to not have a notification bar too. Will see after a bit of time what I use as my daily phone but was a great deal for the phone.

    I used my upgrade too and kept my One X (as i bought it full price). I had a $50 credit from Best Buy through their phone freedom and then we will get a free wireless charger. heck yeah, I'll try it. I have 30 days to decide if I like it or not. So far I'm happy. Just getting used to the new OS as I haven't used Windows Phone before.

    UPDATE: the Lumia 920 is on walmart for 49.99 so I went back and they price matched it. So, FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then I get to claim the wireless charger on the 16th from Nokia. I only felt a little twinge when I saw the release for the HOX+. IT's not that big of an update and I can always sell the HOX and put that towards the HOX+
