It's official. Windows Phone 8 is coming this fall, and it has Windows 8 at its core. What does that mean for you? You'll finally be able to buy a Windows Phone with a multi-core processor and an HD screen, and you'll be able to run the full IE 10 browser. On top of that, WP 8 will also offer a more customizable Start screen, support for Nokia Maps, and both NFC and digital wallet support. Believe it or not, that's just the tip of the new Windows Phone. Check out all the features announced below.

    Shill for Microsoft much?

    Windows phone (WP) really is truly amazing! It's fast, fluid, and beautifully modern looking. My Nokia Lumia is the best phone I've ever had. The screens are all so easy and just make sense. I have it set just right to meet my needs. I use if for games and social, but for me and my business, the best is the integration with Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office 365!. Everything connected, home, office, and mobile, even with my new Surface Pro Tablet PC. I can access my documents on Sharepoint (work), and Skydrive (personal) from my Windows Phone and actually accomplish work on it, if I want to. I am a big fan because the phone is not only fun entertainment but also actually useful for work. I have more apps loaded on this phone than any other phone I've had and I use them. The best part, I think, is that it is new and constantly innovating.

    @Bart - the only problem is that MS doesn't have a good reputation, so even if their phone is just as good as any other (or better), it will look half as good in the eyes of most people because MS isn't exactly popular (I personally don't like Windows much, but that doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with MS).

    So basically Microsoft will equal or trump the competition on pretty much every front (except speech recognition).
    Guess its hard to deny MS has a very, very compelling platform here.

    Looking forward to give it a try!
