Let the games begin: Microsoft officially sets the Windows Phone 8 event for October 29
Are you waiting with bated breath for Microsoft to really enter the smartphone and tablet game? Better late than never, we'd say, and hope there will be new features in store with the Windows Phone 8 launch.

I don't think that Microsoft is releasing a "phone" .. They are just releasing the software "windows phone 8" ..

The invitation by MS on Oct 29 says "Meet Windows Phone 8"! That refers to the operating system that will be running on phones by Nokia, HTC, and Samsung. Nowhere does it say they will be releasing their own phone on the 29th!

I heard Windows 8 Pro will cost 69.99 at launch, so I'm definitely buying it as soon as it comes out.

thats actually the price of the update if you buy a PC running win7 profesional and upper versions!
but i think win8 will be good for tablet or a touch screen loptop! but for those folk using mouse, i think better stick with win7!
