    I'm wanting to know when I can preorder by Lumia 920 on AT&T
  • iosh8er 10/29/2012 4:52:46 PM
    Really want them to announce a surface phone.
  • David Hamilton 10/29/2012 4:52:54 PM
    Just the blue screen for now.
  • Shad 10/29/2012 4:52:54 PM
    Hasn't started Yet
  • Rock 10/29/2012 4:52:55 PM
    well, I'm using Samsung S1 so whenever the battery is out, I can just quickly swap another charged one, instead of carrying my phone with a portable charger plugged. But perhaps Lumia 920 is so good that make me feel okay with that.

  • Justin 10/29/2012 4:53:05 PM
    Does Microsoft write their own background music for the pause periods between keynotes in their video feeds?
  • kush 10/29/2012 4:53:32 PM

  • Flanker_ns 10/29/2012 4:53:43 PM
    Samsung and HTC are rumored to under cut nokia to take over their share of the phone market
  • Glen 10/29/2012 4:53:49 PM
    event isn't scheduled to start for 7 minutes so they aren't late ...
  • iosh8er 10/29/2012 4:53:51 PM
    I hope they don't write their own music because this is kinda annoying...
  • Presh 10/29/2012 4:54:02 PM

    Lol I happen to like this tune...makes me want to take out my guitar and solo
  • iosh8er 10/29/2012 4:54:58 PM
    this is going to be solid
  • scubapro 10 10/29/2012 4:55:03 PM
    Hello, I'm also very interested in the Lumia 920, but its heavy weight (compared to the Galaxy S3 or Iphone 5) makes me thinking twice about this. Anybody who had the Lumia in hands can comment on that aspect? Thx
  • iosh8er 10/29/2012 4:55:05 PM
    WP8 totally beats out ios 6 and android 4.1 can't wait to stop using my android stuff..
  • ukwizard 10/29/2012 4:55:06 PM
    I would prefer Nokia phones over any other phone (except Surface phone, if it exists) because of the Camera and the useful Apps which are exclusive to Nokia phones
  • Declan McCullagh 10/29/2012 4:55:35 PM
    And here's our CNET Update video report from Bridget Carey on "Welcome to a Windows 8 World":
  • kush 10/29/2012 4:55:38 PM
    its always good to wait for lumias
  • WHERES POOKA 10/29/2012 4:55:40 PM
    I am also ready to ditch my I5 for wp8
  • Martijn 10/29/2012 4:55:42 PM
    Good moment to show surface again. While we wait.
  • Josh Lowensohn 10/29/2012 4:55:43 PM
    Hey everyone, we're inside. Event music thumping. Probably starting late.
  • Bobby Cannon 10/29/2012 4:55:49 PM
    The camera is the killer feature for Lumia. No one is going to touch it for some time.
  • Shad 10/29/2012 4:56:03 PM
    Surface Phone would be Awesome
  • nau 10/29/2012 4:56:07 PM
    @wajih Nokia and HTC rocks..But Nokia Hardware uncomparable
  • Julian Raymond 10/29/2012 4:56:13 PM
    @scubapro 10 The Lumia 920 is the iPhone's weight plus 6 US quarters. You can do it!
  • nau 10/29/2012 4:56:18 PM
    @scubapro 10 we have lumias...working great..UI is so much better...look out for Steve woznaik from you tube..He commented on Lumia 900
  • wajih 10/29/2012 4:56:18 PM
    weight is not an issue. Its not more than iphone 4...which people loved for 2 years...
  • MaxB 10/29/2012 4:56:20 PM
    The main reason for me buying nokia: their maps
  • nau 10/29/2012 4:56:22 PM
    @Bobby Cannon And wireless charging plus NFC
  • Kelly Davin 10/29/2012 4:56:24 PM
    @ukwizard those exclusive apps are a winner to me
  • Avazee 10/29/2012 4:56:29 PM
    @scubapro 10: The weight of the Lumia 900 is comparable to the 920.. while it is a bit heavy, the fact that it feels incredibly solid makes up for it. Plus, it's not too overwhelming.
  • rumble 10/29/2012 4:56:35 PM
    @Declan McCullagh more pics please?
