Here's a site we hope to see more of: ordinary people lining up to get a Nokia Windows Phone. We mentioned the Singapore launch for the Lumia 800 a few days ago and now we have some photos of people braving the...ummm...temperate conditions for nearly 8 hours to get their 800's.
Of course those first 100 people did get a free Xbox 360 with a Kinect for their suffering, so we suppose we'd line up for that too. Great to see, regardless.

I am so fricken glad Wp 7.5 is now seems to be picking up many people world wide. I never gave up on windows phone.
I said this before that I am a big screen guy. HD7 currently on T-MO BUT! if this device came to the states and if it felt good in my hands the way this device looks and added to that Nokia drive I could end up with it. It is the best looking of all the WP7 devices hands down.
