I know that many people have not had a chance to get a WP8 phone. Rogers has exclusivity on the Lumia 920, but that phone may be too expensive for Koodo's tab model. They also have the 8X. Telus has the ATIV. Bell has the 8X. Even Virgin has the 8S (and it seems to be flying off the shelves). This leaves only Koodo and Fido without a WP8 offering. Don't be the last of the major carriers to get a WP8 device. I suggest the upcoming Nokia Lumia 620 (http://www.engadget.com/2012/12/06/nokia-lumia-620-hands-on-249-for-windows-phone-8/
), the successor to your existing Lumia 610. While I would never advise anyone to get a 610, the 620 does some amazing things for $250: 5mp camera with dedicated two-stage shutter Nokia-exclusive apps like Nokia Drive which offers free offline navigation Choice of vibrant colours (I don't care about this, but a lot of people do) 8GB of memory, expandable to 64GB Dual-core processor NFC Nokia build quality Now, I'm not interested in this personally, as I like high-end devices, but this could be a major hit for Koodo. Your current new entry-level devices (Optimus Black or Galaxy Ace 2) aren't much cheaper ($200), but don't offer as much bang for your buck as the Lumia 620 would.
