"If you need a cool ad to sell your product it means you don't have faith in it on its own accord."

I replaced Alba with "cool ad".
Do you have any grasp on what "marketing" is? It's the thing that is supposed to grab people's attention. You don't like the ad this way, it's your problem.

"Windows Phone 8" means that some WP8 devices will be released this weekend but as long as no specific devices are announced, Lumia 920 might not be one of them. So if you are interested in a specific device, you're still in the dark of when you'll be able to get it.

If you need a celebrity like Alba on day one to sell your product, you don't have much faith in it's success on it's own accord. Then again, Windows Phone 8 is about where Android was at 2.1/2.2.

That's great and all but I want the exact release date for every device and every region to be announced.
When will I get my Lumia 920? This weekend? In two weeks? A month?
When can people in the UK get the Lumia 820 and when can people in India get a Ativ S?
"Windows Phone 8 will hit Europe even sooner - WP8 phones will be available by this weekend."
That could, in theory, mean that we get the HTC 8S this weekend but all the flagship models get released here in December or something.
