Microsoft's media campaign continues today with a Windows Phone 8 keynote. We have posted the live stream above for your viewing pleasure.

Windows Phone 8 represents Microsoft's latest efforts to capitalize on the mobile market. With Nokia, HTC, Samsung and others already revealing their hardware, it is Microsoft's turn to pull back the curtain on the reaming software features.

Silverlight smooth streaming is just plain awesome, No buffering perfectly live video stream

Providing the CDN has enough performant disk to store the fragments. Also that the content creator has specified enough bitrates for their clients.
I've seen smooth streaming go horribly wrong.

Everyone I know in the UK has always called it "Nok-ia," but I'm not sure of the correct pronunciation.

yeah i think it's actually NOK-IA, at least that's how i've always said it!

That's actually cool (H).

Why do I get the feeling the Rooms feature is going to be useless.

It looks very useful to me, for groups of people (family, friends etc.) who all have a Windows Phone (or even if some of them have iPhones). A group of friends and I always start Facebook message threads when we feel like organising something; Windows Phone Rooms would allow us to message each other about it much more easily, whenever one of us feels like doing something, and one of us could easily add the event to the calendar for all to see.

*sigh* Still no solid date for ATT release. Is it a ATT thing or a Nokia thing that is preventing them from giving a solid availability date? Really want to get my hands on one and soon!

I was to tell you that I watched the whole keynote through here.

Based on what I've read so far, the announcements didn't seem particularly exciting overall. Any word on multitasking improvements?

I liked that tune played during the presentation of 'Steve's phone'. Better then most Microsoft jingles, it sounds familiar, does anyone recognize it?

As for Windows Phone 8, not much that wasn't announced. Stil looks better then the competition though.

just watched the keynote..and bam i'm sold. they're implementing some good features. rooms, it's really a good one for me, also as i stated on another post kids corner is dealbreaker, for me. i really want to get my hands on one of these puppies. ohhh...and on a ranting side...where and when did ballmer went to school? he can't talk for sh**, pronunciation errors, and the voice pitch going up and down...man, i've had to turn down the volume down a notch, so that my eardrums wouldn't pop out
