Nokia 8 looks nice. I could get a Nokia 6 at jbhifi but I'm not in a hurry.

So badly executed - I've said before if they made a half decent Windowds x86 based phone with HDMI port they could have taken over the world.

 

I don't disagree, for the business market.

 

But the consumer demands light thin and fast. None of this can be achieved with current X86\x64 architecture.

We'd need to triple the battery size to make a full day, which I'm OK with.

 

Their better bet would have been to stick with ARM, included a FULL windows RT, and made most of the store free for 'phone owners'.

 

The old 'Skype Phone' from 2004 sold like hotcakes.

PDA's with windows CE sold almost as well as Palms.

 

Imagine if your phone (I agree, with HDMI) could have office, skype, VLC player, full web browser, you name it. Include the Java runtime and maybe GTK or some such and the program world opens up to you.

There was ways to make Windows Phone popular without having to care about architecture too much.

 

I mean, Windows Phone was already fucking great. It just worked! It synced with outlook, it was the most stable IMO, and it was intuitive.

Just poor execution.

Processor is clocked too slow.. and tends to get really warm when gaming... the 6 that is.

I'm waiting for an x86/x64 mobile phone. Intel atom ones for me aren't enough.

CISC processors are just too much for the mobile space. ARM's RISC processors have simply dominated the space and there's no getting it back.
