    I am pretty sure the OPs head exploded at that moment, as he did not bother commenting back.

    personally i dont see this too usefull for already launched phones. so i wont jump on speculations too.
    but it excites me: when ms is listening our feedback, the idea of ms looking at hardware limitations defined by os (which are worse than soft limitation by hardware), and the idea of making the function better than just default, by giving users control over it through notification+actions

    It turns out that some of the already launched phones actually have led lights, but the OS doesn't support them. I think this is Nokia's last gift to windows phone :) if you don't believe me, if you have a 730 or 735, look at the top left of the phone, you should see a black circle. Have you ever wondered why that is there?

    I guess that the people who hated that Cortana etc also goes to Android and iPhone also hate this because Microsoft copied something from other platforms.
    My T-Mobile Wing from Early 2007 had LED notification lights using Windows Mobile 6.... That was before Android or the iPhone even existed, so it's definitely not copied from either of these... I am glad it's coming back, I've definitely missed that feature ever since I replaced my T-Mobile Wing.

    Lumia 735 and think about all the phones with capacitive buttons that light up, what if they 'breathe' like the 925 does when it charges.

    My old N8 had this - very useful!

    But on a Lumia 930 - the camera has two LEDs - those will flash? I won't be able to see it unless it is face down....

    and how much power does this use? Those LEDs are also really bright.

    At night, is my room going to look like a disco?

    Anyhow - good news!

    I'm assuming the feature will be for other manufacturers who might want to use LED notifications with their phones rather than for Microsoft phones.

    I'm hoping that this uses the led of the Windows key. I don't want to see a blinking light on my phone. It would look old fashioned and out of place - I just don't want to see an obvious LED on the phone. It was great when my Samsung sph-A900 had a flashing LED for texts / voicemails, because that was a flip phone.

    Never needed it (glance all the way) but might be useful for those with lower end phones.

    Or Lumia 930 owners. 930 is a flagship but doesn't have Glance. (Seriously, Nokia?!)

    if you want to keep glance just active for a couple of minutes a notification LED can be usefull. Could show that my phone is charging and doesn't sit wrong on the wireless charger. could show low battery status in general. could indicate unread notifications. glance can not be seen from 3 meters away. btw windows mobile supported notification LEDs as well

    I hope Lumia 630 has LED hidden somewhere waiting to be activated, just like Lumia 730.

    So If one goes by that logic, 520, 620 625, 720, 820, 920, 1020, 1520, 630, 530 don't have LED's so that doesn't make any sense. It would be good to have blinking windows button lights, for i guess 720 onwards.

    So far we haven't figured whether they gonna use the windows home button for WP8 models or the feature is exclusive to new models 730/735/830/930.

    If true, this would be particularly interesting and useful, and it's nice that it can be enabled or disabled in the notification settings. I just hope the behavior of the LED notification can also be customized. I've worked with a developer way back in Windows Mobile on an app of his that allowed the detailed customization of how the LED blinks depending on the status of the phone... customizing the blink rate, blink color, blink duration... making the LEDs imitate how the strobe lights of commercial aircraft behave...

    It may be unlikely that this one will be as detailed as that, but I surely hope we could customize it.

    No, I am arguing about the point you made of "notification on windows button is not happing". I am not arguing for the LED lights. Just to prove a point, if given the all restrictions if it still would be possible to achieve windows button blinking feature, it would be great. The reason you mentioned is true but that doesn't provide with the reason why Microsoft cannot achieve the button blinking feature.
