    Just waiting patiently. It's my daughter that is the problem. She wants my 928. She keeps cracking the display of her 4s and wants something more solid. I would like to hear about the phones when W10 is released. Please.

    The 928 is a 920 but from a Provider? I only know the 920, 925 and 930... But yes, I do like the sturdyness of my 920. Maybe I'll use it for my workphone if I got the mythical 940 (I got a phone from work, but as they only have android smartphones, I opted for a simple Nokia)

    The 928 is a 920 variant for Verizon. It is a solid phone. I like my windows phone but I have a nagging feeling that the OS has a questionable future and I wonder if I wouldn't just be better off getting used to Android on a Note 4. The latest moves with Nokia don't leave me with a lot of confidence. http://www.fudzilla.com/news/38187-ballmer-s-nokia-obsession-turns-sour-for-Microsoft

    I'll be waiting to see what happens in the next few weeks with the release of W10. Hopefully, we'll hear about the Lumia soon. Before Microsoft wipes out the last vestiges of the company in its ranks.

    Since Drawboard is a Metro App., would it naturally work on a windows phone?

    WindowsCentral seems to think that there might be an x86 Windows 10 phone sometime next year:

    The short answer is no. The longer answer is that the majority of the coding is done to make it into a Universal app, but they still would have to do some work to update to slightly modified UWP APIs and also do some UI work to scale that down to a phone.

    I cannot do it. I'll use the iPhone 6 plus for messing around but I couldn't replace the 1520. It's just a better hardware device.

    I know we've been talking about phones a little in the SP4 prediction thread, but here seemed more appropriate.

    So it will apparently have an N-trig digitizer but not an integrated pen.

    Does integrated pen mean, S-Pen style (where it has its own dedicated silo) like the note series?

    Sigh: just read the article... Its the same pen that we use for the Surface. Come on...

    So did they forgo the 940 model and go straight to the 950? Or is the 940 still around but a mid range non flag ship phone now?

    Latest rumor is the 940 will be skipped and direct to the 950.
