    Elop notes we've been at this all day, so he stressed that they have cocktails. Nice touch.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:03:55 AM
    Elop takes a swig, and we're off (it's that kind of event, I guess).
  • Josh Miller 4/3/2014 12:04:09 AM
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:04:14 AM
    Elop reviewing today's announcements, talking about Joe Belfiore's presentation on the new features of Windows Phone 8.1.
  • Tim Stevens 4/3/2014 12:04:15 AM
    Another fun fact: Elop is drinking something green out of a martini glass.

    From being out in the field and looking at competitive devices at lower price points, the chances you'll get a low-end phone with updated OS on Android is slim, so we're proud of this, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:05:02 AM
    He pulls out the Lumia 930.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:05:16 AM
    It's the best we have to offer with Lumia and best Microsoft has to offer, Elop says.
  • Tim Stevens 4/3/2014 12:05:23 AM
    The 930 Elop is showing is orange, which matched his shoes he was wearing earlier. I'm now wondering how many people he has to help him coordinate his shoes with his phones. Obviously he needs more.

  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:05:33 AM
    He touts the "unparalleled" audio quality on the phone again.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:05:47 AM
    Again, he touts the wireless charging in the phone.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:05:58 AM
    There's a green Fatboy wireless charging pad he touts.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:06:13 AM
    The Lumia 930 will sell for $599 in more than 100 operators around the world.
  • Josh Miller 4/3/2014 12:06:19 AM
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:06:26 AM
    No luck with the US. It's the 1520 at AT&T and Icon at Verizon
  • Tim Stevens 4/3/2014 12:06:27 AM
    We're going through availability of the Lumia 930. It's worth pointing out that this is not a phone intended for the US Market. It's the Icon that we have to make do with here.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:06:35 AM
    Clearly, the 930 is a flagship device for us (except in the US).
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:06:48 AM
    He pulls out the Lumia 630, green like his shoes.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:06:52 AM
    It's $159!
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:06:59 AM
    That's pretty cheap for an unlocked phone.
  • Tim Stevens 4/3/2014 12:07:08 AM
    The shoes match the phone.
    And all is right with the world again.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:07:14 AM
    It's an amazing offer, he says. The 630 will do really well, because it takes it a step forward.
  • Roger Cheng 4/3/2014 12:07:36 AM
    The Lumia 635 is $180 with LTE. That's an amazing price, he says.
