    seated with drinks and snacks in hand, all ready for the show.

    Seriously Anand and Brian, I love these liveblogs you have been doing for major release events. Witht he exception of the occasional picture not loading right they tend to go really well.

    I work about 5 blocks from the venue where this is taking place. Completely forgot about this event until I saw the huge Windows Phone posters outside while walking by it to work this morning. Reply

    Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online(Click on menu Home)

    Did they not update the alerting system? This is one of the major downfalls of WP7.5. They added the ability to have other ringtones, but not for text messaging. The alert system needs to be more robust if WP8 is to compete against the other operating systems available. Reply

    So, when is the secret event going to occur? The one when they announce the exciting features that they have been hiding. #phooey Reply

    ...I can't say I like it. The old one let you know that there was more to the right and the little bouncy arrow added some character. Now it's a bland array of squares with nothing to suggest to new users that there are more options to be had with a swipe to the left.

    I feel like Microsoft has lost sight of what the Metro design language was about: simplicity, efficiency, and intuitiveness. With Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, they've lost the "intuitive" part.

    Windows Phone 8 feels like a marginal upgrade to Windows Phone 7.5 at best, and apart from NFC I can't honestly see why they couldn't enable many of these features in an update to Windows Phone 7. I was expecting something a little more profound with WP8, now I don't think I'll be upgrading my Omnia 7 with another Windows device.

    But does it run Android apps? That would be a reasonable start... Reply
