    If you don't mind, please do not include "all the WP8 features revealed." I want to keep the focus on Nokia.

    That being said, I was honestly expecting at LEAST three phones, not two. I wouldn't be surprised if a "cheaper phone" is announced in the next couple of months, though. Might be a low-key announcement.

    A tablet.

    A phone featuring a high-megapixel camera with oversampling technology.

    I thought they would hint at a Nokia tablet.. I haven't been this excited for a phone since the iPhone 4.. New OS and hardware has me hyped.

    A wireless charging solution that isn't flat. How lame is that? At least they could have copied Palm's Touchstone from 2009! But I guess that would only matter if the phone's screen is turned on while it's docked on the charging pad.

    Oh, and I really wanted to see a successor to the Lumia 710.

    I was expecting a release date. Well, more like hoping, not expecting. Since there were no AT&T, Verizon, etc... reps scheduled to speak, I figured there wouldn't be a date mentioned.

    I really wanted a release date. Please do the Apple thing and announce and release quickly. I also wanted the phones to have a liquipel like coating. What good is the most durable phone in the world when it still has water as an enemy.

    was hoping for an updated 710...or at least 2 phones that are not pretty much the same size, a mid range of 4" would be perfect.

    A touchscreen that women with nails can still use? (I know a woman who has to use a stylus on her iPhone because of her nails).

    OIS (if it works as well as advertised)?

    Mitlov did you see that it uses a super sensitive screen, so you can use nails or a glove? Did you read that info

    Frankly I believe the 920s camera is pretty revolutionary and it WILL stab the iPhone in the heart.

    Yes, that's the whole point, I was listing enticing features the Lumia 920 had that the iPhone 5 won't.

    1. A beautiful, next generation design phone - seriously, look at the pic below.
    2. A killing camera, with unmatched software enhancement
    3. Most responsive touch screen in the business (with its own "retina" display")
    4. Although not mentioned, WP8 features deep Skype integration and FREE VOIP calling feature AVAILABLE TO 3RD PARTY APPS.


    I think what I really wanted, as a musician, was RichRecording. Ah well, maybe next time.

    The things I did NOT expect on the 820 in particular were:
    • Wireless charging
    • Changeable covers
    • Awesome wireless docking solutions
    • Super sensitive touchscreen

    The one thing I expect any 2012 phone to have is Gorilla Glass. That alone is enough to keep me from getting one. I could've lived without the wireless charging or even the exchangeable covers.

    I would have expected release dates and prices. I would have also expected a HD screen in the 820. Cyan in the flagship 920.

    In addition I think a 720 would have been nice, as well as a tablet.

    Honestly, it's mostly Microsoft that I was expecting more from... like for Microsoft to have a nearly finished build of Windows Phone 8 would've been nice.

    However, it's clear this isn't the case.

    I was expecting that fake Pureview Nokia device that look different.
    A real Pureview device and a phone that max every spec Windows Phone have to offer ( Basically the ATIV but with a Pureview camera)
