    So from here on, it only gets uber exciting!

    Excited yet?!

    Watch it live here - http://blogs.windows.com/windows_pho...e-8-event.aspx

    Just a few hours before WP8 is out there, good, bad and ugly of WP8.

    I feel the excitement around these launches hasn't yet got the buzz, but will it pick up now? I know there is an excitment around Windows 8 and Surface RT, but people aren't talking about WP8 yet.

    There is HARDLY any news being covered of any leaks this time. Not an iPhone saga. Have we already seen what was to be seen? Anyone finds it odd not to see leaks less than 7 hours before the event?

    How do you guys feel about waking up to the buzzed up, hyped up WP8?

    Well, while I'm waiting for the event, it'll probably be another month till I can get my hands on 920, despite being a Finn >.<

    But yes, overall very hyped. The Surface news recently have sort gotten my mind off WP8 a bit, but the Surface for finns is most likely further away than the 920, so now that the biggest Surface buzz is gone about the preorders, starting to focus on WP8 again :D

    I havnt had a previous Windows Phone, but a friend of mine who works in IT business and has plenty of phones (including WPs) that the company has gotten him has no use for his Omnia W, so he offered to give it to me to tide over the wait for 920! I told him how I've been going to the stores to get a feel for WP7, so now I get at least a few weeks-month worth of hands on with WP7,5 before getting the Lumia 920 :D

    More importantly, the 920 should be going on preorder sale tomorrow in the US.

    Anyone thinks Surface dined on the new iPad? Less than 2 days for Windows 8, hope they hint some integration with WP8 during the launch! ;)

    I can't wait.

    The only thing I'm worried about is a wave of negative posts here on some minor issue just like after the Nokia event.

    I liked the Live Wallpaper thing. Is just a rumor for now but it's a nice option.

    ^^ They did say it was 10/10 rumour. Most likely to be real? But did we not see this option from ATIV S leak couple of weeks ago?

    Live wallpaper seems like a great idea. It can actually work as a notification center if any third party developer wants to implement such an idea, I believe.

    Exactly one could create an app where you pick your location - fav teams - stocks - etc and it becomes a dashboard! Love the idea. I have so many ideas for Live Wallpapers can<t wait to put my hand on the SDK.

    Torrent Monitoring, Bus schedule, Subway status(which line is not working, etc)

    I have a feeling that if they don't reopen preorders tomorrow, they are planning on doing it at the event on Monday.

    I can see where you guys are taking the live wallpapers to! I can so see a "Notification hub" built on that wallpaper by this Christmas :P

    I am excited. Picked up a Lenovo Yoga 13.1 and love Windows 8, so its tide me over for a bit. I am glad there is suspense. I think the iphone announcement was ruined cause all the leaks were right so there was no surprise. Seems there will be some with wp8 which is good. Cant wait for Monday :-)

    Or it could be that there is no suspense left? May be everything we know is already been run as a news article on this site? :P

    Google fans have not taken it nicely. They are all over the place. I definitely agree, Karma this is!

    I hope not many people are at risk with the hurricane and they can stay home safe while watching the awesome WP webcast! Fingers crossed for both - safe lives and awesome launch! These 48 hours are THE hardest for any tech launch, I've witnessed.

    I'm excited but there are probably no leaks because there has already been a WP8 and Nokia event talking about what is coming so comparing it to Apple's launches isn't exactly the same. Isn't Monday just a formal launch? I know we've heard there may be a few things we haven't seen which is something to hope for. *fingers crossed*
