    I'm pretty sure it is the 3D gestures. It would, after touch screen smartphones be the next revolution among smart phones. IPhone was the touch revolution, the McLaren will be the 3D gesture revolution if well implanted.

    What I hope most, no matter what it is he refers to, is that neither Google or Apple can copy it within 2 years. That would give WP enough time to take over smartphone world.

    All in all has to be a feature or overwhelming thing that makes people want to forget the app gap and choose WP anyway. Just as when people took an iPhone simply for the new experience, leaving behind much more functionality that was at Windows Mobile.

    Dammmmmmmmmmm....and I thought I was dreaming.....

    Stop dreaming about running Android apps on Windows Phone. That would just be crazy and would go against the UI guidelines set by Microsoft and make the OS look bad.
    I'd be all for that just to see the meltdowns that would occur here at WPC, lol

    Couldn't this all just be Microsoft employee/fan enthusiasm induced exaggeration though?
    Alright, I've seen the video, and I'm convinced by the guy's tone that this has to be something legitimately goodly.

    My guess is that Samsung will stop churning out android devices and will be exclusively manufacturing for windows. Hahahahah. That'll definitely upset a lot of people.

    My money is on either an Android emulator or allowing other apps stores. There have been rumors that Microsoft has been trying to accommodate china, and being able to steal apps is a big thing for the Chinese marker.

    A week long phone battery is great, but those aren't exactly features that would upset the smartphone industry though (in terms of market share at least).

    I think the biggest part of the hint was when he said "we can do that?!" What I took away from the is it's probably something no other smartphone can currently do and something that might be available on any Windows Phone (I have a 1520, so hope for 512MB RAM support isn't why I think that). Because of what I'm speculating, I think it might not be 3D gestures. But I'm no smartphone reviewer, so I might as well be saying there's going to be an accessory for phones will have fans on it that can hover it where you want it to based on hand gestures.

    I think the biggest part of the hint was when he said "we can do that?!"
    Another part of the hint is "across everything"... That's why my wishful thinking could only speculate they're gonna release some version of Windows Phone to load in Android devices and maybe they've even found a way for iPhones (jailbroken or not). Of course they'd have to release a desktop program to use for this feature. Think about it, Android devices can be flashed with custom roms, why not a variant of WP? "We can do that?!?"

    Also, MSFT is keen on getting people on board to use their services, that's where they expect money to flow from. Not to mention, they're practically giving away WP for free, they might as well release it "into the wild." MSFT is a corporation, a for profit entity, this 'surprising move' must be financially motivated for the bigwigs to approve. They already have apps for their services for iOS and Android. If people are interested in having full integration of these services with their OS (hello Cortana, OneDrive, XBOX), they can flash a WP rom into their device. Of course this requires MSFT to focus development of their services integrated with WP... Something a lot of us here have had gripes with.

    Such a move would upset Android and Apple. Apple won't release iOS out there. Android, it's out there but being open source and very customizable, at the expense of security, is too fragmented. WP, if released properly and 'curated' by MSFT would be great as a unified, secure OS for ARM devices.... That's like taking a page from the success of Windows in PCs, it can be installed in machines meeting minimum requirements. That would "upset the world across everything."

    Opening WP to run Android/iOS apps would be a terrible idea. That would lose MSFT their app developers, not just for WP but for the ecosystem... PCs, XBOX and their planned system for the internet of everything. Why keep the devices and services division when you can't pull in developers?

    A big downside to this idea would be a bloated Windows Phone/RT to accommodate compatibility. Although, if the flashing can be implemented to smartly respond to a connected device, maybe it can avoid that.

    But then again, this is all wishful thinking... Pure speculation. They might as well spill it out so we'll be done with it. Oh I hate it when companies tease and then make us wait...

    Sorry, can't sleep yet. TL,DR? I just said: WP for loading in any phone.

    It would certainly help for those who like WP but just need one or two must have Android apps.

    Flip side being less motivation for native apps.
