Just hope the next big conference they do they have a "real" party. PDC 2005 Microsoft rented all of Universal Studios. Now it seems like every conference they just have a big club or something. Yes, there's a bit more mingling, but then you can't chug a bunch of beer and go on the Mummy three times
Whatever Nokia releases in Canada might make me finally buy one
Problem is you never know when they'll bring it out, or if you'll even be able to get one.
THIS is what Apple gets right. When they put out a new phone they already have 10 million stitting there in stock. When Nokia puts out the nicest WP7 we've seen, it's Euro only. And North America might see it in 6 months. By that time you won' care anymore. I wanted that Dell Venue Pro when it first came out. A year later I still don't have access to one. Microsoft needs to boot the phone makers in the *, as this is going to be the killer. If you don't have the phone to give out to everyone, don't release it.
@Murugan15:True. But as they're not setting specs to be a sort of "lowest common denominator"...they also can't have crazy powerful specs that drain battery life, and that not all OEMs might be able to accomplish.
