Final Windows Phone 8 walkthrough leaks out in a lengthy video

0. phoneArena 26 Sep 2012, 07:45 posted on

The near final SDK that was meant for select developers has been floating around the Internets for a while now, and the leaked software was taken, installed on a 64-bit Windows 8 Pro RTM machine, as it is the only one that can take it, and the emulator fired up and recorded...

Looking excitedly to the end of October, so we get the official instead of the unofficial.

Bring it, MS....

Not sure if I like it yet. Still got another year and a half to go with my Lumia 800 anyway, so by then it will have already changed.

Well actually you only have a couple months before you get the 7.8 update which will give you the "look and feel" of Wp8 supposedly.

There're still many things we haven't seen yet...I guess we will have to wait until october 25th.

Yes, I think it's weird that there wasn't any mention of a overhauled voice-assistant to compete with Google Now and Siri. I honestly want to believe that MS is just trying to keep some things on the down low until Oct 25th. I mean come on, they knew they were sending out the SDK to people that run websites like WPCentral. I just doubt they would show all their cards so early.

Can't for this. Android is starting to get a little stale for my taste and I'm never buying an iAnything. This will be a nice change of pace. I have T-mobile so I'll have to settle for the 8x though, ah, first world problems.

Very boring OS, there's no innovation and many features like voice search.. are lacking
very little personalization. Things are not looking good for WP.

10. snowgator (Posts: 3187; Member since: 19 Jan 2011)


This isn't the final version. I hope.

There is a lot of kicking around that MS is sitting on the releases as they finish up some other features. I hope.

I am expecting a huge upgrade. Anything less, and I will not be a part of WP 8. Especially at launch.

The display size and UI parts depend on the user. Personally, I'll laugh at anyone that I see talking on their Note. It looks comically stupid. As for the apps, you do know that WP8 will be able to run the same apps as Windows 8 PCs, right? How many people own Windows PCs and will be either updating or getting a new one? Google that for me. Don't you think devs are gonna work their asses off to make apps for all those people?

Who said....so u mean WP will run photshop!!!LOLz
Btw its up to u....use the note and ull never wanna leave it....all android phone are different from screen size to processor where as all WP are almost same...S-pen makes everything so easy especially when it comes to multitasking....android has more devs nd will always....the processor on WP is s4 with lousy graphics where as android has exynos and s4 pro......no match BRO

mate your such a ranting little cry baby, why are you even commenting if your so happy with android.

i will not slag off android as its a great OS but wp8 looks just as good if not better its fresh. the lumia 920 is a top device and can match any android on the market plus the amazing camera kicks the competition in the teeth so go cry somewhere else

you give android users a bad name

there's your comparison proving the 920 can stand toe to toe with your android flagship.

why are you so much of a fanboy, the more choice the better and wp8 is a strong contender

mate thats the stupidest thing ive ever heard.

nokia are great when it comes to build quality and camera, they also have nokia maps which is excellent and now with wp8 they have a OS that looks accessible to all

so get over it fanboy the lumia 920 is a true flagship that easily competes with what android have and the iphone.

BRO, why're you getting so defensive just cause I said your phone makes you look like an idiot? I never said anything about how powerful the phones are, I was just replying to your little comment about the apps. Either way, you could put a 10-core Exynos in your Note, it will still lag like s**t from time to time :)
And the S pen is just a s**tty gimmick to lure in dumbasses. Such as yourself.

lumia users r poor thats y they hav added support of forks and spoons....cuz they cant afford a stylus and slow note!!
awesome!!....first get 1 nd they say anything......note with jelly bean r yet one of the fastest in benchmarks and in practical use as well!!
nd even if nokia starts using any OS now every1 will say Sorry its NO(kia)!!

wtf your comment isnt readable, learn to type or is that what been a fanboy does to you

so first your saying people who buy nokia are poor? really so your a fandroid who uses what ifans say....wow your one of the dumbest people on here

you arent rich so get out of your delusion fanboy. i wont slag off android but you give all android users a bad name.

the lumia 920 is shaping up to be a great phone, the camera beats all the current android phones.

maybe you should go take a nap seeing as your a whining little fanboy

Ah, seems like just yesterday my old Sensation had the highest benchmark and ran like a dream. Today, not so much. Androids don't age very well, my friend. You'll see that soon enough.

I'll tell you what. If I ever buy a Lumia; I'll buy your phone from you and use that as my stylus. Lumia doesn't care that's It's plastic, Lumia doesn't give a s**t c;

Look at the immature little kids talking down and hating on a phone operating system they have never used.

Funny you don't see WP fans talking trash on droid threads.

Grow up you geeks,if you don't like it don't use it that's why we have options.

I know you have never been apart of a winning group,but believe me no matter how much you hate no one is ever going to say "MeoCao and reverence were right we should all be using exact same OS" what a couple morons

Generally I am neutral towards MS cause they have kind of a monopoly therefore a little slow on innovation but they really went all out in Windows Phone 8...great looking UI, smooth transitions, useful integrations and great user experience.
That being said I still think I am going to give it a year before I actually buy a WP handset because this is just the start and the really good stuff comes after the initial launch and test phase.

smooth transitions?
smooth as a snail maybe..if the real product turns out this "fast", then the latest JB 4.1.2 will run circles around this. same goes for iOS 6 on iphone 5

That being said stop acting like a litle girl and give credit where its due instead of being a troll...JB is awesome but WP8 is fresh and brings something new to the table and GENIUS why do you think I said I will give it a year before I actually buy a WP8 handset??!!!

The chill out is on you really , my comment was more of a general response to the notion of smoothness- nothing pointed on you.

And..well, you know..here's the secret - i like to troll on Microsoft and Windows phone. It's what my cheap lowly trollish alter ego chose to pick on..sorry.

It's an unofficial version ported to a computer, dips**t. My two year old Samsung Focus lags less than my One-s, and that's just with a single-core processor and 512mb of ram. Can't wait to see what this OS can do when it has the same Processor as modern-day androids.
I don't know what OS you use and honestly I don't care. Don't knock an OS till you try it.
