I've already let John know that redoing the camera test would likely be called for by you guys.

Is WP9 coming next year or in 2014?

Hard to say, because Microsoft doesn't have a long track record with WP to draw on. I'd guess next year brings WP 8.5, then 2014 brings WP9, but I really don't know. And, there's always that weird Windows Blue thing that could change the cycle.

What do you mean by
"the daytime photos and video had been somewhat disappointing"

Who disappointed with the daytime video recording?
Quality is better than any other phone currently on the market

Sorry, you gotta ask John on that one. I'm just repeating what he said. I haven't had a chance to test the phone.

Still can't tell whether or not the edge sharpening is gone. Pic 5 looks better on the left due to colors.

Looks great! The difference are quite substantial. The pictures looked sharper and the colors looked more natural. Hopefully the update will roll up in the next few days.
