    It literally has everything I asked for in WP! Higher res, memory, dual core, seems apps are coming along nicely, hopefully WP8 has a bunch of software enchantments that they haven't said yet. I love my iPhone and will keep it as well but this is what I have been waiting for!

    Lets just hope more people start to give WP a try!

    **** yea! One of my biggest complaints was 16gb only, that just would NOT cut it for me, I need at least 32gb up, now with MicroSD all I need is a 32gb card.......or 64gb!! o_0

    Seriously. Until this day I was considering switching to iOS in the fall, but not anymore. I got what I hoped from the announcement: a feeling that I can safely stay with WP ;)

    I actually tried a while back to go to WP7 with the lumia 800 and couldnt do it, for hardware and software reasons, Im not saying i'll give up my iPhone, I have too much invested in it and love it but I want another phone on the side, either Android or WP, looks like WP is gonna be my pick.

    To that I say that you made the right pick going WP8. Android will feel pain from this one in the long term. Trust me.

    Not to mention they said that they were talking mostly about platform features and not the all of the end user features.

    Nothing...yet. They specifically said they wouldn't DISCUSS a lot of the end user features. They're saving that for a later date. That's a good plan. They don't want Android or iOS copying the good stuff so easily.

    Which will be greeted with much bowing and scraping from sites like the verge who will proclaim that their favourite OS did it first and will ALWAYS forget to mention that same feature when doing a WP review.

    While I'm definitely leaving iOS due to the fact that I've grown sick of Apple's business practices, I'll be moving to Android next as I've pre-ordered the Galaxy S III. However, I will be looking long and hard at WP8 when more details are released and would not hesitate to switch if it wows me. Just like others, I'm stoked by what was revealed today and will wait (im)patiently to see how the user experience is enhanced.

    I have to agree, though my contract for the Big Red is out in October and I'll never have another cell phone again until I can start paying for my own... as it stands there really isn't a phone that says "THROW YOUR MONEY AT ME"... The L900 had that glimmer, but now with WP8 and the new hardware infrastructure... Just got to see the next generation phones.

    I think to many people read between the lines and hear what they don't want to hear re the WP7.8 news and then get to worked up about it. WP8 will be great, it along with all the other things comming like W8. Personally I'm looking forward to getting a kick *** WP8 phone, tablet and uprading my laptop to W8 and have one uniform experience between them all.

    As for WP7.8, well I am sure that it will have as many features as the current platform and hardware will support. I believe it will still be a feature rich device and can still hold it's own amongst it's competitors, just have to wait for MS to reveal all.

    If Microsoft can sell me on the home screen when I see it in person, yes please. If not, they better give me back my offset tiles.

    I find the small tiles to be too small, while the medium tiles are now too big (as they stretch across the whole screen). I'm going to have to be convinced that a chaotic layout of small, medium and large will work out.

    First question you gotta ask yourself is how much stuff will I pin on the Start screen? I have faith it'll work. Besides, be glad now that you got the double wide tile.
