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.

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.

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
