    Unknown at this time. Nothing currently available is making me too excited. I'm actually thinking of trying Hemroid as I can get the ASUS Padfone but no decision has been made yet. Hoping Nokia gets with the program and gives us something good besides a fancy camera that also makes calls.

    Software I don't pay for so it is a given I will use windows 8 and office 2013 (actually I am using them now) - hardware I cannot see anything interesting and I never buy first generation.

    Win8, Office 2013 and Surface Pro are definitely on my list.

    I'm not sure when I'll get a WP8. I'll get one eventually, but probably not until next year.

    W8 Upgrade, SurfaceRT (at launch), WP8 in the Spring. Already have a XBox/Kinect. Office 2013 will have to wait a bit. Still getting used to Office 2010.

    Surface, W8 upgrade for my 2006 gateway box that's already survived upgrades to vista, and 7. I will also get an HTC WP8 device, next Gen Xbox isn't due for another 2 years at least.

    I already own a 360, Windows Phone, a couple of PC's a wireless mouse/keyboard combo. But I am gonna be honest, I might be done with MS as the Windows Live ID service has really frustrated me in the name of security, which I can understand on some level. But when I can't change my billing info for Xbox Live because I have to confirm some stupid code sent to an email that doesn't exist anymore and they won't change any information for 30 days (which it has been well over at this point), it turns you off from wanting to deal with a company for anything else

    I will be buying a W8 Phone, upgrading my PC to W8 and getting a Surface. I already have an Xbox 360 so I don't think I will be buying a new one for a couple of years.

    I'll be buying a WP8 device soon after they launch. I'm just not into tablets, but a tablet running win8 pro would interest me somewhat, I think the price will deter me. I'll probably put win8 on my laptop, and maybe my desktop, I'm not sure yet.

    Nokia WP8 phone. Surface. Windows 8, it just a 40 dollar for the upgrade!

    Well, it's Singapore here, I hope I can get my hand on the new phone and tablet sooner.

    You'll be mismatching ecosystems
    The PS3 UI is horrible as well as the YouTube app.

    Nothing for a while. I just got my phone 5 months ago. I already have a great laptop.

    Not in the market for anything just yet.

    I'll probably get a nice WP8 phone when my contract is up and/or I'm eligible for an upgrade. By then there should be some nice new WP8 apps out and hopefully a PureView phone from Nokia, that'll be my next.

    That said.... I will admit, if someone made a 7" Win RT tablet with specs similar to the Nexus 7 and priced at $200 or under, my credit card would probably burn a hole right through my khakis. :lol:
