    Now that we have a SDK leak and some more details about the OS that will be WP8 its time to start the discussion. Daniel has posted some great articles to get the discussion going including a walk through video:

    Windows Phone 8 OS video walkthrough via the finalized emulator and SDK | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    We also have seen Windows Phone 8 SDK images:

    Trove of Windows Phone 8 SDK images arrive exposing app backup, storage options and more | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    We also know that Windows Phone 8 has officially gone gold (RTM):

    We now have something to talk about people so lets get this area rolling.

    If Windows Phone 8 has gone gold, why isn't Nokia releasing the phones??

    What I want to know is if WP8 supports the sending and receiving of vCards and vCalendar appointments. Also, if you can assign ringtones to specific contacts. Nobody is answering these questions.

    Perhaps nobody knows yet.

    Maybe you're right but I would assume playing with the contacts and calendar apps in the emulator would reveal some information but I could be wrong.

    You don't need to wait to assign contact-specific ringtones... you can do that just fine in WP7.5.

    I guess what I meant is to add a specific sound to a contact so when I receive an email from that person it triggers that specific sound. I know that is a weird request but I can do that on my BlackBerry. When I receive an email from a business partner my phone triggers that sound. I don't have WP7.5 so I can't test it. Lumia 820 will be my first WP.
