8 megapixel. In Asian countries they say 800 million pixels instead of 8 mega pixels.

1 million pixels is 1 megapixel. Anyways that's been corrected in the article.

soooooooo, its pretty much the htc one series + WP8, just replacing the one with 8 to appear "cool", i love htc, but this is a bit corny........

technically samsung is doing the samething

Samsung did the same thing. The Ativ S is just a Galaxy S 3 + WP8, just replacing Galaxy with Ativ.

you're both right......
its easier than making EACH AND EVERY PHONE with a unique name, but its starting to be too much now.......

I feel WP8 shouldnt have to be androids rehashed as wp8. I mean why does wp8 have to get the short end of the stick?

Because it's only a new OS. No one knows if it's gonna be successful or not, so no one wants to go all in on something that might fail. Nokia seems to be takin it seriously though.

Thought rumor is Zenith aka 8x will have quad core processor.

Yeah, I read that too, when is aw this i was pretty disappointed because i was hopping for the Quad Core S4 pro with the Adreno 320 GPU in a WP8 phone

Hopefully HTC ca pull it off. They have some steep competition.

WHEN will a WP8 with a QWERTY Keyboard show up..? Until it does.. Im stuck with my DVP or possibly the BB10 phones. I have huge hands and can not use the screen to type.. I need by QWERTY keyboard. Even more so the smaller one. I know it wounds counter-intuitive. But small raised keys are easier and faster for my thumbs to navigate than the larger landscape keyboards. I don't know why MS, HTC, Samsung, or Nokia don't make one for launch.
