    Keep in mind that it took three hours for them to give us the high-level overview that they gave us....


    Keep in mind that this is not a hardware conference - it is a developer's conference.
    But its also a marketing conference. A time for them to promote the latest and greatest that they have to offer, including hardware. Build gets a lot of media attention. There still may be an announcement about some new hardware, but im a pessimistic person.

    Yawn. In fact, not yawn. OURAGE! Nothing for ATT? I don't even care if its a Lumia. Samsung's new phone is a Verizon exclusive, the Icon is a Verizon exclusive, the 930 will be available everywhere but the US... I have been looking forward to hearing about the next phone that I can actually purchase on my carrier for a long time now, only for them to announce nothing? The flagship ATT phone in the US is the 1520? Really? A phablet? A phone for a niche market?

    I know they COULD announce something at 5:00 PM but I highly doubt it. Its probably just going to be about apps and sales and crap like that. Are we going to hear anything from Samsung, Sony, HTC, or any other device maker? I hope so.
    Wow. Relax. This is BUILD 2014. NOT an ATT specific or even hardware specific conference. Besides, this is just the first day.

    I'm sure more devices from different OEM's will be shown throughout build.

    A couple of things before everyone flies into panic mode (though it seems it's too late for some of you...):

    -I'm willing to bet that the reason why the 930 is so far off is because of some sort of exclusitivity deal with Verizon that they have to wait to expire before they can proceed. I don't know this for sure, and I won't claim to have any insider info, but knowing the US market and carrier structure, and about Verizon in particular, this seems to make the most sense.
    -Elop said "we will continue to push forward with the Icon and the 1520 in the US." He did NOT say "The Icon will remain a Verizon exclusive in the US." Maybe wait and see what they announce tonight before flipping out? The event tonight is #morelumia, so there's obviously more hardware details to discuss. Patience, people.

    Cool, We should get the new tiles (3 rows) on the 928 as a option(4.5" display). Over all I am impressed, If Cortana is as good as they show, and not as worthless as Siri is (most people who have a iPhone never use it for any thing more than texting).... After the coolness factor wears off, will it still be usefull ? People will only use it if it helps then in the long run, it might just be able to do that.

    Over all the show was good, love the new feature set, this is a lot of catch up on things(other OS's have had for a while) but, with a new to Windows phone that has a Microsoft twist on things.

    The 10th cant come soon enough....

    As for the Nokia new models, I could give a crap less. I have had nothing but a NIGHTMARE with their support (going on MONTHS NOW) and I still have endless issues with this 928. WORST COMANY I HAVE EVER DELT WITH. I dont think I will ever buy another Nokia phone again as long as there is other models that are good (Samsung and HTC will have WP devices on Verizon)....

    I was a bit disappointed but not surprised by the total lack of mention of Windows RT. (there was a reference to RT in the IDE screenshot, but that was about it)

    I'm expecting that Windows RT will get more attention at one of the keynotes either tomorrow or Friday.

    Hopefully.

    I mentioned earlier in this thread that Microsoft appears to have "cheated" with the ModUI version of Office. During the presentation, once PowerPoint got past the file selection (clearly ModUI) it ceased to look like any ModUI app produced to date. So either Microsoft is changing some of the ModUI elements or using proprietary APIs.

    We all know, as now Cortana will be for USA, then my question is still can we get feature like quiet hours, etc. for other regions??
    Will we get extra tile on Phones less than 4.5 specially L720 & L520?
