The best part of the interview between Kerris and Neowin is that he apparently threw his Lumia 900 across the room to prove a point. That point he proved? Nokia is committed to great products that are durable, last long, and change the game which each innovation. When Kerris threw his phone across the room, he picked it up and it still worked as if he had just bought it, no scratches and no dings.
