Windows 8 Phones Possibilities??

According to and article on the Verge the two W8 Phones coming are the Ativ-S and Tiara. Personally even though it's just a code name I'd have trouble parting with $$ to sport a Tiara.

The Ativ has nice specs, however I just can help but think that Sprints just trying to put something/anything out there with little regard to furthering it's own success nor the success of Windows 8 phones.

Personally, I'm going to hold out to see if the Surface Phone comes to life. In any case I'll be sticking with the W8 platform, just maybe not with Sprint and it's truly unlimited data.

I am in the same boat. It looks like my choices are

1. Tiara on my SERO plan
2. HTC one (looks cool sans android and battery life) on SERO
3. Jump to tmobile for a win8 device

looking at the Tiara's spec, I won't buy it unless it won't cost me another $10 each month and free out the door. It has 8GB flash and has a 800x480 screen. The one though, looks really nice except with no uSD card slot.

Yeah it would have been nice if Sprint would at least gotten the 8x from HTC or something really good. But it's obvious that the Ativ S is the best choice better screen more memory just a overall better device. It's basically the same hardware as a Galaxy S3 but running WP8 so it will be a great device. But the Best Thing Sprint can do is at some point get Nokia Devices on their network Nokia to still today has the best hardware out there I think. If Sprint was to get Nokia it would really help them but either way the Samsung Ativ S is a nice device as well. Overall I'm just glad Sprint finally getting some WP8 devices.

I think you would probably look good sporting a tiara. Sorry, couldn't resist.

I'm kind of surprised they're not offering any of the new Nokia phones. I guess Nokia is having trouble supporting CDMA.

Well, they have Lumia 928 coming out on Verizon. I think it is more of a case that they don't care to deal with Sprint.

Neither platinum, gold nor titanium tiara couldn't help me!
