    So basically it will have the update available from the day you can buy it? It's going to devs on the 10th.

    I don't think these will sell much except to Samsung fans. Nokia really does have brilliant hardware out there at the moment for the windows market and I think if the Lumia 1520 and 1020 were sold with Androind , I reckon Samsung would have serious competition in the Android market.

    So you get your brand new phone out of the box and then have to immediately update it? Way to go Samsung!

    I couldn't agree more. Put it this way, if there was a proper Nokia Android device - i.e. one with all the GApps services - but equivalent in hardware etc to their Lumia's then it'd/they'd be on my "to look at list". Got to say that Microsoft made a good move buying them, as I've been impressed with the whole "Lumia experience" - so much so that I've considered dropping Android to move to Windows Phone.

    Despite having an S3 at the moment, I'd agree that anyone buying an Ativ must be doing it because either they got a phenomenal deal or the equivalent Nokia wasn't available. I'd assumed that the whole purpose of the Ativ was to stop Microsoft from doing their usual sue-or-pay-us-for-Android tactic.

    Then again, I'm not exactly a Samsung fan at the moment, since both my phone and tablet (S3 and Note 10.1) seem to have developed pretty bad intermittent slow down in the past month - to the point where they're almost unusable. And I'm putting the blame firmly on Samsung's bundled dross for that since the two devices don't share much in the way of apps I've installed.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Fingers crossed the Nokia 930 is just a smaller 1520, following the 1520's design and NOT the Lumia Icon's design.
    If not, then may go Samsung as long as I can get a plastic plastic cover not one pretending to be brushed metal, #tacky!

    There is one good thing about Samsung ATIV over the Nokia handsets - removable battery. Personally I've never need to remove a battery in a smart phone , but apparently to some it matters.
