Nokia's latest and greatest handset includes a 1.4GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss f2.2/28mm rear camera, and a 4.3-inch AMOLED display — an improvement over the Lumia 800 screen. Nokia has also added a 1-megapixel front-facing camera with an f2.4 lens, to enable video conferencing with the built-in Tango application. The most important advancement here is the introduction of LTE support on AT&T, a new offering for Windows Phone users.
Cant wait that much and as u said it would be too late for sure. I am happy with whatever N9 has to offer even with limited things. Lumia 900 is not bad at all too. Microsoft windows 8 beta coming in feb, then windows 7 sp2, maybe tabs. Lets see what nokia has to offer. Heard about a new nokia N8 with belle too.
