    And once the show starts we will be turning off comments.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:11:37 PM
    @DaCatalyst I hope so! I do have a good feeling...but I've been wrong before...

    Okay, hopefully this event kicks off soon. I'm getting antsy!
  • Cmholcomb 9/19/2012 3:12:53 PM
    Really excited. Maybe we will see a Windows 8 device with Beats Audio!
  • GamerTimeUS 9/19/2012 3:12:56 PM
    Do you guys think that HTC will be partnering with someone today?
  • sarahtew 9/19/2012 3:12:56 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:13:05 PM
    @GamerTimeUS I would say that's a good assumption.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:13:23 PM
    @Roger Hey man I think HTC is trying to hypnotize us with all these colors...
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:13:31 PM
    Okay, lights are dimming. Show time!
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:13:32 PM
    Lights going down!
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:13:43 PM
    HTC CEO Peter Chou takes the stage.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:13:50 PM
    They're bringing out the big guns this morning!
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:14:02 PM
    Today is going to be another incredible moment for the mobile industry, Chou says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:14:19 PM
    The power of mobile continues to amaze me, he says.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:14:34 PM
    Yeah if Chou is here, we're in for some big news.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:14:43 PM
    I've been in the mobile business for 15 years, and I still find it incredible what smartphones can do, he says. Talking about wow moments.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:14:54 PM
    Windows Phone logo flashes up on the display
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:15:01 PM
    We're going to see some Windows Phone 8 smartphones.

  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:15:15 PM
    HTC touts its long-standing partnership with Microsoft.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:15:25 PM
    Beautiful software inspires beautiful hardware, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:15:37 PM
    HTC has more experience making Windows Phone than anyone, he says. We've sold more than anyone.
  • sarahtew 9/19/2012 3:15:57 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:16:03 PM
    When I first saw Windows Phone 8, I got super excited. When you try it for the first time, it just clicks.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:16:19 PM
    Chou talks about the gorgeous design of the UI. It's so simple and clean, he says.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:16:28 PM
    Hmmm, Chou is really making a case for Windows Phone 8.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:16:30 PM
    No products have been released yet.
  • sarahtew 9/19/2012 3:16:56 PM
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:17:00 PM
    Things have really changed since the days of Windows Mobile!
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:17:32 PM
    We have to create "hero phones" Chou says in his meeting with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:17:42 PM
    This is the most exciting thing we've ever done after working with Microsoft for so many years.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:18:06 PM
    After coming out of our meeting with Microsoft, I told designers to take a fresh approach. "We need a breakthrough. We need an iconic Windows Phone."
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:18:11 PM
    Hey if Ballmer shows up, that'll be unreal. Saw him like just two weeks ago.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:18:26 PM
    When we saw the new design, Ballmer got "super excited"
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:18:48 PM
    Steve Ballmer takes the stage.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:19:00 PM
    Ballmer's taking HTC pretty seriously.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:19:14 PM
    There's no question we've taken a very different and unique approach with Windows Phone 8, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:19:21 PM
    It's the most personal experience ever created for a phone, he says.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:19:40 PM
    Damn, Ballmer is really making the rounds...we're beginning to get really close I think.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:20:03 PM
    The phones are very beautiful, Ballmer says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:20:14 PM
    Ballmer says its a significant milestone in the next chapter of HTC and Microsoft.
