This round of WP phones seems to be much better than the prior rounds. Better LCDs, better CPUs and most of all a more finished OS. WP7/7.5 felt too much like a beta test, and everything seemingly solved in WP8 seems to be making it the more robust OS it really should be.

And that you can chance the battery out and update the SD card.

Try that on the i-Phone 5

I don't think you can swap out batteries on the Nokia and HTC W8 phones. Also, the SD slot is only available for the Samsung phone I believe..

The Lumia 820 has SD, but not the 920. I think there's a few other models

Odd that the only one of the three with an LED screen is the one they demo with a white background, when the most striking quality of Samsung's AMOLED screens, like most LEDs, is how black the blacks are.

Looks like Windows Phone finally has the software and hardware chops to start gaining some serious market share. We'll wait and see what the consumers think. These phones look nice, but unless one is offered unlocked I don't think I'll be getting one.
