@Memnarchon: Don't be naive about cloud storage. Ignorance isn't befitting of someone in the tech industry.
And at the risk of sounding biased towards nokia or microsoft, which I'd like to state that I'm not, this device seems quite fresh and inspiring. I've yet to see any mobile devices in the last year bring out anything groundbreaking. Perhaps the styling isn't to everyones taste, but at least its not another grey/black slab and yes the price is expensive...but no more than say an S4 or an iphone.
First of all I have to say that I am a nokia high end phone user for more than 13 years. Their phone durability and stability is far superior than anyone (ALL my phones lasted more than 5 years with daily use
Second. Probably by saying that you give me the impression that the last month you were away from tech/news/internet access. So let me enlighten you:Report: NSA Has Access to Skype, SkyDrive; MSFT Responds
Third. I like the device too. If I would buy a phone right now I would probably buy this one.
Fourth and last. The negative opinions are most going towards to M$ not so to Nokia (that's what I read/believe).
