Would you buy a Windows Phone 8 handset?

Would you buy a Windows Phone 8 handset, like the Samsung ATIV? Or maybe a Nokia handset? Pretty tough competition from the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and presumably the iPhone 5.

iphone 5 screen will be too small for current trend. Even my 4inch screen looks tiny to the 4.3inch screen of the nokia 900. Lets be sexist here. Non techies, including my wife and the rest of the female population willcontinue with Apple because they can use it out of the box and buy pink rabbit cases to help them find it in their handbags. More tech minded users, blokes, will appreciate the far better camera of a lumia purview 920 and the 4.5inch plus screen of any top android or windows phone. truth is, they are all good, but despite owning a mac and all three generations of iPad i will buy a windows phone next. I've had the original iPhone - loved it, a win mobile 6.5 htc touch diamond 2, really loved it, iphone 4, very boring, Samsung Omnia 7 loved it but originally no apps...so moved to Android htc incredible S, favourite phone but call/sound quality hopeless so back to Windows with Omnia 7. And its great. Will enjoy all the things I'm currently missing - ie sd card storage, awesome camera, bigger screen, higher screen resolution, dual core processor etc.. when I get new win phone 8. And with it the prettiest, freshest OS with 100,000 apps. Sorted. Will be close call with the next gen Nexus phones, but 21MP pureview camera should clinch it as other specs will be similar. Try Win phone, its just fun!

Much depends on details of those phones that we don't know yet price for one, but more so not knowing enough about wp8 makes the question unanswerable for me at the moment.

I'm not a fan of iOS or Android so my next phone will be WP8.
That is, if there is a next one. I might just stick with my N8.
