Who would seriously pay for a batman phone? Not only are DC characters 1-dimensional, but Batman is nothing more than a rich guy with a really lame costume. Short of Aquaman, Batman is the worst of the DC characters. Think about it, he wears a costume with bat ears and a cape, that is really just a ..cape.
At least Spiderman had spider abilities. Batman is just some rich dude, with an old butler, and stupid gadgets. Now add in that everything has to be 'bat' themed. Bat mobile, bat bike, batcopter, baterang, batcrap..... etc.. Get rid of the 'bat' everything and you will at least slow down on the sucking so damn much... learn to fly like IronMan and then you're getting somewhere.

The movie tickets are not FREE, they are included with the price of the bundle.

Considering this is the middle of 2012, the tech inside the Lumia series is rather early 2011 - the single core CPU along with LOW-RES 2010 quality screen. I love the look of the L800 as the 900 is too damn big.

Need a WP8 with dual core 1200x720 rez and user controlled colored tiled like I can do on my Android.

Because of those issues, I may go for another Android phone and apply the WP7 interface like I do now.

Sorry if i'm offensive, but a single core cpu, 512mb of ram...........No thanks, i can get something better now at a lower price.

If the phone doesn't need as much RAM to function equally or better than another phone with more, why would it matter? If it runs faster on a slower CPU, than most other phones, why does it matter?

It is the end result that matters, not the speed of the processor or the amount of ram.

Try not to focus too much on hardware specs in the mobile space. Windows Phone 7.5 is built to not need much in the way of fast hardware. In that way it is much like iOS. I am running an older Samsung Focus with fairly low end hardware and WP7 is flawless.

Dude, you don't understand a single thing about phones. Do you really know actual requirements and standards? Let me be clear, i'm not just judging from a specs view, i'm judging from what we have now and what Nokia is offering, and i'm saying this: we already have better things than this.

And you really think this phone has evolved enough to beat the dual and quad core phones?. Don't forget about the additional software you can get throught the internet, will they run better? how many of them?. Is the price good enough?

Well, it's still a little early to say "yes" or "no", i give you that. But i have not really much hope for this phone.

Microsoft is not known to create efficient software. And even if for some reasons WP7 is efficient enough then there are still the 3rd party software that would always require the best hardware, which basically means that you'll never ever get as good game on WP7 as on any other platform and it is not just the games.

Sorry my friend you are the one who is misinformed. You obviously have no actual knowledge of the Windows Phone operating system and have never used a phone equipped with it. As a business software developer myself I know first hand that efficient coding often makes a bigger difference than the hardware running it.

Windows phones run smoother on lower speced phones compared to Android counter parts for a reason. The windows app marketplace has tighter controls than Android market for a reason. The apps in Windows marketplace are made sure than they perform adequately for the hardware vs Android where there is little to no policing of the apps and performance can vary wildly due to very poorly written apps.

If you are a real developer, you should know that coding has a limit too. And you should also know that more functions, better interface, 3d, more resolution, and multi app at the same time will always require better hardware.

Don't be upset, but you sound like an dos dev and user who wants everything in black and white (or 16 colors, well i don't even remember). Well face it, people don't want that. They want lots of functions, lost of pixels, nice interface (with lots of choices to take), lots of apps running smoothly at the same time, fullhd movies, and all of that at the same time.

Phones are no longer what they used to be, so forget about the 90's and live in the actual world, and take some time to talk to people and ask them what they want from a phone. As a systems engineer and bussiness manager i give you the same advice i give to developers i have under my command: know what users want, don't let yourself be locked in an office in front of yout computer, because you are not working for you, you are working for the users. Maybe someday you will be a real pro and not some low-level novice.

Can get the Lumia 900 for $99 in the States. The batman phone would be cool though. We have issued a handful of the Lumia 900's at work and so far they are great for business phones. We are waiting for WP8 to come out then we will have what we need to make them more functional.

I personally do not know, but everyone who has used them has said the same thing, they are much more responsive than iPhones and Androids. Even Steve Wozniak said it was the best phone out there, except for the lack of apps.

There is a good chance it might not game as well as some of these other phones, but I don't really game on my phone. I have a high end PC for that.

I have a high end PC for that.

Now the question is: does it have what others have?
I know it could be more responsive, but that doesn't mean it is better. It's like comparing boot time between win 98 an win 7. If you want a responsive phone, get one from 1995 and that's all.

I know phones are not yet the ultimate tech for gaming (i have my own hi-end pc for that too), but the question is: can i get something better than the lumia 900? My question is: YES.

One advise: responsiveness means (in most cases) lack of features, and as you said: lack of apps.

I want a responsive phone with many applications to choose, i want to watch an hd movie from time to time while in the bus, i want a nice interface with good res and of course, a good price. Lumia 900 is not what i need.

if you only want to talk, this phone would be nice for you, but i see somthing really crappy: the price €600 !!! i won't pay €600 for a phone when i can get something better with less money. If i's gonna pay that price, i want something worth it. You get my point?

What I told you, before you got off on a tangent, is that the Lumia runs faster than an iPhone or Android based phone with less hardware. You said it's because they don't have apps, but that's totally untrue. Running the same apps, the Lumia just runs faster by all accounts. Just because its app store is limited does not change how it performs with what it does have.

The lumia not only performs well with less hardware, it has a much better screen that works well in daylight and durable too.

Yes, go ahead and complain about the lack of a well stocked app store, but stop with the hardware crap. Its better in many areas than the competition, just not in the raw CPU power, but that is made up for in a better written OS.

Limited is not better. Again: you compare win 98 and win 7 . Win 98 is faster because it lack of features.

Lumia can run faster with its crapy hardware because it has a limited OS, it's limited in apps and features, so you can't get new and better applications and you are limited to what nokia wants.

Nokia says: "i run faster, so give me more money for my crappy phone", buy Nokia doesn't say it's phone is limited so it can run in cheap and crappy hardware. If you want to pay what Nokia wants for their crappy phone, go ahead. I'll get a better phone with better applications, better OS, better hardware and better price.
