    Hello everyone, please use this thread for up-to-the-moment discussion surrounding all topics on the keynotes. We shall have the live stream up and running on the site in time for todays keynote (I'll update this thread with a short announcement and link as to when we do) so prepare to have a tab open there and return here for opinions and rumours.

    Let's see what'll get announced! :)

    I had to stop, too much buffering. IE10 looks interesting but on opening they mentioned it's not all about version numbers yet they're on 10 already?

    Is Kik really that much better than MSN Messenger? In the keynote, they mentioned how they have over 3 million users, but isn't MSN messenger on every Microsoft computer? Why won't Microsoft make MSN messenger for the phone, instead of us having to use a 3rd party app on my phone? Isn't messenger their baby? Why won't they let it grow? :-/

    I am excited to hear about Skype. I dont use Skype, but that tells me there will be hardware with front facing cameras.

    Have they show any new hardware. I know this isn't they place for it, but I was just wondering if they hinted at anything.

    There was Skype for WM6.5, and no FFC phones. [HD2?] It might be used as a internet messaging program.

    I'm extremely excited about the changes in Mango, but what puts a whole damper on things is the fact that updates are still dependent on carrier approval. I'm sure many of us will update through unnofficial means, but

    I am excited to hear about Skype. I dont use Skype, but that tells me there will be hardware with front facing cameras.
    I'm sure there will be eventually, but Skype on WP7 isn't a predictor of this. You can still use Skype for VOIP and text-based chat.

    Looks like you were short by about 1400 or so API's

    Not that I'm aware of, would have to clarify.

    They said that.current phones wouldn't support the gyroscope feature. I thought they may have gave some info on what the new specs would be. I also thought they would announce specs for the lower priced entry level phones. As reported.

    Probably because that part stayed a rumor... At least I would hope... By the time Nokia WP7 devices roll around current specs will be low end specs... So why change em? In regards to FFC devices; they need to come around in order to compete with iOS and Android, so I'm sure they'll be coming out soon... With everything that mango is bringing to the table, I honestly feel that it is what should have been released as v1.0 (or 7.0 however you'd like to see it) but nonetheless I'm not complaining if these carriers can release it on time later this year then they will have attainted feature parity (or a majority of it at least) with the competition in only one year, I'd say that is one hell of a ride considering it took the competition a good number of years (plural lol) to get there, now I understand Microsoft has the advantage of just "copying" features, so to speak, but still, executing it in one year deserves props. They have my tip of the hat.

    I dont too my hat to them. Not yet anyway. Promising things and delivering them is two different things. I'll give them props if they deliver.

    I dont think the current line will be the lower end. I see android phones being released with specs less than the HD2. Anyway. I'm only interested because my contract is up in July and I don't want to jump the gun.

    Mango is going to bring a ton of new features to the table. The new Internet Explorer and the new Games hub look pretty exciting. I can't wait to see what new features they add to Zune too. Hopefully they're not at the mercy of the carriers for Mango.

    I want some of that Mango speed jump! What I have always desired from a device is for it to be able to keep up with my thoughts. If I want phone then internet then contacts I want the device to get there and do that without interrupting my train of thought. My Arrive comes closes to doing this of any of the devices have owned so I am excited by the prospect of a faster device.

    The list of things coming was pretty huge imo. And the demonstrations of implementations was quite amazing. The only thing I did not see was smart dialing, but I got more than I hoped for.

    I seem to recall reading that HTC owns the patent on smart dialing. Honestly, I'm not sure how it would work with WP7 since the keyboard is generally only displayed when an input field has focus. Can't say I miss it much though; most of the calls I make are on the first screen or two of my call history, and if not it's easy enough to jump into the people hub and access them. And phone calls are a secondary contact method for most people I communicate with nowadays.
