I watched the launch and I liked what it offered. Only thing I didn't like was the delay for the actual phones.Windows Phone 8 Smartphone O/S Preview [bbc.co.uk]
Microsoft has unveiled the next version of its smartphone operating system.

Windows Phone 8 shares much of its code with the firm's PC system, making it easier for developers to write programs for different types of devices.
Microsoft said Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Huawei would all be making devices powered by the system upgrade.

First Surface [webmasterworld.com] and now Windows Phone...They need to take note of how Apple does it. They hype the crowd with an announcement, and then have the product available immediately...or very soon thereafter.

I completely agree, they have to shape up with how they communicate. It's like they can't change from how it was done 20 years ago. Steve Jobs nailed it.

Yeah, i wish we had immediate availability from MS, they may learn that sooner or later, but come on, lets not kid ourselves, Apple announced iOS 6 which isn't due for a LONG time..

I like what HTC announced, basically making parallel market of their android sets for WP8, which is a good idea. Can't wait to see what Nokia shows off eventually and most importantly, i want the WP8 SDK!
