I hope they put a file manager and USB file transfer and stuff in Windows 8 for mobile. That'd be AWESOME.

File Browser is not necessary. iPad works fine without file browser and I believe Windows RT will do too.

I think the name 'Windows Sl8' for the tablet would be brillitant, it integrates the name of 'windows 8' and 'slate' together seamlessly!

I think it's going to be an announcement of:
1. The acquisition of either AOL (just spent billions for AOL's pattens) or Yahoo!
2. Details of Windows Phone 8
3. If it is a tablet, a joint venture with Barnes & Noble to make an Xbox Live Entertainment Tablet.

Very Excited....Now people will see a real announcement from Tech giants...And I am pretty sure that our Microsoft will be pretty clear on what they gonna offer and bring rather than saying a new OS with new 200 features and it is gonna change everything or something like that. Lolzzzzzzzzzzzz
