Really nice! Quite a lot of improvements and really nice ideas! A lot of innovation, from the last version of the OS.

I like the idea of integration through all your devices, phones, PCs, tables, XBox and why not maybe TVs at some point! I think, MS has nailed this time, I would like to see it success and bring good competition! WP8 is a huge leap!

Of course I don't want to compare it to Android or iOS, its a different beast, and because of its differences, it is why it stands out! I have to admit it is very eye catching!

Maybe now Apple will start to worry about true innovation and bring more to the table, at least more than an extra row of icons, and tricks for camera and its personal assistant.

Agree. Windows phone 8 is going to be successful. Microsoft started tablets, and pocket PCs and initial smart phones before anybody else. Apple over took later by smart phone. Now its turn for Microsoft to take over with its modern GUI and I am sure they are going to do it as they have done with Windows 95. Moreover, there are more programmers to create apps for Windows. Especially because Microsoft is enabling the apps to function on both mobile and desktop. That is best change. People would slowly get attracted to Windows but the impact is huge.

looking forward to updating my lumia 800 to the 820, is it just me or does the mem card storage and changable cover on the 820 make it more appealing than the 920 to anyone else?

And the tiles are actually dynamic, as opposed to static icons of Android, iOS, Symbian, Meego, Palm OS, Windows Mobile 6.5 and iPod Nano OS. I think you must be from the future. How are the holographic icons going? Stop gloating at people from the past you troll :(
