Well they haven't exactly show much have they?
I guess everyones kind of waiting for Oct 29(or 30th here) to see what WP8 really is. I'm hoping for some exciting stuff considering they've held back announcing anything for so long.

There are leaked videos of the devices.

They just seem so restricted in what they can do. I like to play with my gadgets. I don't like being stuck with whatever is out of the box.

Microsoft Surface Phone said to be in testing in Asian countries.

This rumour will cause me to delay a Nokia upgrade.

How would this be different to the current Windows 7.5 (which intends to upgrade to 8) phone?

EDIT: LMGTFY - I see, Microsoft proprietary hardware

WP8 is a brand new os. There is no upgrade path from 7/7.5/7.8. It just looks the same.

But yes, Microsoft hardware like the Surface tablet.

We're probably going to get a windows phone to trial some WP-exclusive app for property managers in the field to sync with our back office system. Hope it works well.

Then I hope the property managers are competent enough to use it...some of them I swear have panic attacks when they have to turn on their PC.

the weight is throwing lots of reviewers off - its almost a quarter of a kilo!
Well I'm not buying one till I see it in person, if I don't like it in person I'm getting a Galaxy Note II which is identical weight but has a 5.5" screen and is a beast specs wise.

Ok, I haven't updated my iPhone in a while now cos I don't want Apple Maps. Now, there's iOS6 out and I'm thinking that maybe I should just give up and update.

Should I?

It's not as bad as it's made out to be.

In other news I'm pre ordering the Lumia 920. Going with Telstra cause in sick of vodafail and they're offering the JBL portable speaker as a bonus which is awesome because I wanted that anyway.

Maps is terrible, it's worse than when Google Maps first came out.

Apple dropped the ball. If you use the maps at all Kris, don't update.
