    Just a simple question. Is the jump in version from 8.1 expected to be as big as the jump from wp 7 -> 8? Im just wondering if we are going to get transparent tiles or a completely new OS. Personally i have built it up a lot in my head. Just wondering what your thoughts are.

    I dont think its a big jump from wp8.1 maybe a few features added because I think MS is focusing more on the PC version.

    And also, unlike last year, news of the wp8.1 was everywhere and everyone was talking about it,there was even leaked video of it. And there will be a Joe Belfiore's tweet lingering around on every Microsoft/tech related news site about the the big change of w10 for mobile a week before its release that's if it has a big change

    I agree maybe some updates on action Centre /live tiles/live folders so some nice "windows dressing". I hope more that on the longer term the app gap will become smaller.

    If you look at Windows 10 desktop, a lot of phone features like Cortana and notifications have moved there. I doubt much moved back. Suspect Office Touch will be a big thing. Support for larger devices. Bluetooth mouse/keyboard support. USB OTG. More app APIs shared.

    But less UI changes.

    Could be wrong though :)

    I really want it to be a big thing. I don't think it will be something mindblowing.

    The reports are unclear.... I too would like the next big overhaul... but not a whole UI change. I don't know.

    The leaks are all over the place. You couldn't even guess what will be added.. I'm pretty nervous myself but one thing's for sure I'm sticking to Windows Phone after wanting to switch to Android for the past couple of months..

    Big jump. A major refresh of the UI, and many new features.

    I don't reckon the UI will change much from the Technical Preview. A few tweaks for things like Notification Centre. And something happening with Charms (if there weren't hardware buttons for them on quite a few devices, I could see them being dropped). Don't think we'll see anything related to phones.
    MS are so focussed on support for platforms other than their own that it would be nice to see something like Office Touch to reverse the opinion that they don't value their own operating systems. I doubt it though.
    Maybe some news on US-only features being made available to a few more territories.
    And with any luck, they'll be some kind of huge, massive, extra-special apology for XBM on Windows Phone.

    Notice that "poor" and "great" are in quotes, denoting that the terms are not absolute values, but will change depending on the individual and their expectations. If during the presentation they announce several amazing things, but not the thing you were expecting, you can still have a "poor" experience.

    It'll be nothing special. Those who expected some game changer will be disappointed. Those who weren't expecting much of anything will be all "told you so". It'll be anticlimactic and the situation isn't going to be much different than now.

    I agree. I think too many people are setting themselves up for disappointment. Nonetheless, I'm curious to see what Windows Phone 10 will be like. Although I'm sure we won't see much about that today.

    Why are you so pessimistic? do you work for Microsoft to know it wil be nothing? then dont comment anything on it till it comes out!

    Security hasn't been this tight on a Windows Phone/mobile announcement since Windows Phone 7 launched. MS literally surprised everyone with the complete change of design (from what I can remember). I'm not expecting anything on that scale, but I'm betting we'll see some things that will get us pretty excited.

    I really do hope that Microsoft has been listening to its user base and integrates some needed changes to put it ahead of Android and Apple. 8.1 was playing catchup, hopefully 10 will be the game changer.

    Hmm it's just a preview like not the last build so you can wait and see, maybe we'll get some of the features we wanted

    What I did see, however, was interactive notifications! Replying to a text without having to open the Messaging hub is going to be sweet!
