    So are unlocked WP8 phones going to be available at the pop-up stores as well?

    For people in the UK, Nokia UK have just tweeted that the Lumia 920 will be available from the 2nd of November. EE and Phones4U will be stocking.

    The 820 will be available from November 7th from EE, Phones4U, and Tesco Phone Shop.

    Why would Microsoft announce dates for AT&T?
    Because they announced T-Mobila AND Verizon.

    It's not like Apple doesn't do the same during their keynotes.

    Why would Microsoft announce dates for T-Mobile or Verizon? Oh, wait a minute, they did. So what's AT&T's excuse again?

    How come the Ativ(love the balmer pronunciation btw) doesn't have a launch day or appear on any carrier, yet the Odyssey a phone we know nothing about does?

    What about the 8S? That's the one I want to get.

    Why would they talk about WP7.8 at a WP8 launch?
    I thought they mentioned some WP7.8 stuff at the other WP8 announcement earlier in the year. I figured they would have at least said something about it

    TellMe/Voice updates? Can we create calendar events or reminders?

    I'm wondering if after Nokia's and HTC's press conferences highlighting their phones for WP8 Samsung 'went back to the drawing board' to come up with something that will standout among all the color that that the Lumia line and the 8s/8x will offer...

    Hardly any news on this Press Conference. I loved the Facebook live lock screen and the Pandora announcement. Kid's Corner we already knew as well as Rooms. Also, they didn't bother to talk about the notification row on the lock screen. Finally, no hard dates or prices for AT&T. Suppose AT&T has to announce it first. $50 for the Verizon 822 is cool. Other than that...WTF??

    Disappointed with this announcement - where the heck are the details on all the new tech features included in WP8?

    New resolutions?
    NFC?
    Multi-tasking - any changes?
    Dual-Core cpu - how will the phone take advantage?

    If they want to get the blogosphere talking about WP8 in a positive way, they failed miserably. In fact you can be sure the talk of the town will be how the announcement was a dud, and for the most part was just a rehash of things we already knew.

    I started watching this, even though I knew it was going to make me regret getting a Lumia 900.

    It didn't.

    I am disappointed.

    pointless, weak, disappointed. I don't know anymore about it now than I did yesterday.

    At least they finally announced when the rest of us loser developers can have the SDK.

    Hey Team Obi Juan, what updates are you referring to? I've been preoccupied the last couple of days so some juicy things may have slipped through the net.

    It's pretty disappointing. I don't want an iPhone and I am played out on Android, so I will likely switch carriers for WP8.

    Reading the recap it wasn't so bad. I get why people are upset over no ATT launch dates, but it was more of a global event so they probably didn't want to emphasize US carriers + ATT will probably have their own event.

    But I see the negativity has started so it might be a good time to avoid this place for a while.

    Shocking not to see Sprint or any other CDMA carrier in the US not being on the WP8 launch? Not at all. It's being done for a reason, and is not lack of interest by the carriers. It's more about direct support from Microsoft and not encrypting CDMA based devices to Qualcomm 512 bit current standards and using a 7 year old 256bit encryption AT&T and T-Mobile standards (which are obsolete if you want EVDO Revision B aka SVDO devices).

    This was great part of the reason if not the key reason why there were only two devices for CDMA carriers, and coding to GSM carrier based encryption and not having CDMA coders in house (HTC was behind the CDMA encoding for NoDo) has not helped Microsoft either, especially when focusing their support and marketing strategies for WP7 solely on GSM carrier.

    Now you know why Windows Phone has less than a 3% marketshare in the US smartphone market.

    And to correct the beginning of my previous post, I meant to say no need to be shocked for not seeing Sprint or any other CDMA carrier outside of Verizon to be on board for the launch of WP8.

    That was another part of my question. I have heard nothing about WP8 TellMe, but whatever updates they do get, I'd like it on 7.8.

    Sprint lost 423k subscribers over the last quarter.

    As we've heard absolutely nothing about TellMe, I would safely bet that it has not been updated in Wp8. :(
