You can now watch the Windows Phone 8 event online here
Windows Phone 8 is finally here and it’s a huge improvement touching the very core of the operating system. It’s also a giant leap toward full maturity for Microsoft’s platform with plenty of new features, but if you didn’t catch the live stream of the event yesterday, you didn’t get to experience just how they look like in real life.

Microsoft is, of course, keeping the same level of smoothness as you might be used to in previous versions of Windows Phone, and that’s no surprise given the platform now comes with a powerful dual-core Snapdragon S4 chip. Everything also looks sharper with support for 720p displays, and there are tons of features like deep Skype integration and a brand new Start Screen that allow for much more customization.

This time, Microsoft seems to have listened to its users. And now you have the opportunity to dive in the atmosphere of yesterday’s Windows Phone Developer Summit - check it all out below.

Victor, or anyone else knowledgeable with Windows Phones... Will the NFC on these devices be compatible with Android NFC devices for sharing content?

Will not because Microsoft knows that Android will share malware instead.

Clearly responses from Fanboys aren't going to help I guess... Grow up kid.

Seriously, I'm extremely sad to those who bought their WP7.5 handsets a week ago. A no WP8 update sucks. And even though WP8 is so awesome *no argument here*, those lumia 900, titan II and focus S owners are left stuck with a platform that will have their last and final update on June 27 *WP7.8* which only have minor feature fixes and start screen overhaul.
