... And a drugged woman on stage. Saw the keynote completely. Liz needs to cut the caffeine or whatever she's having...

If they're going to support system-on-chip, then does that mean they will phase out wp7 in the future and replace it with win8?

No windows 8 on SoC is for higher powered/performance Arm chips for use in situations such as tablets/netbooks/PoS/ATM's etc

I just hope that AMD will work together with ARM on some machines.
Their neo systems are far from energy efficient,
A windows running on an ARM system could benefit greatly from the low power, high performance integrated graphics cards from AMD!

Better than Nvidias cards.

I find what intel is in the processor market (highest power, lowest power consumption) AMD is in the graphics market.
We know NVidia will be working together with ARM, but I believe pretty soon the x86 processor architecture will be the past.
I'm glad I read up on this review, and extend me purchasing a pc for perhaps next year, ARM powered instead.

Wait..... WP7 didn't have copy and paste on release? iOS (or however that is capitalized) didn't for a long time and it was a rampant plague of complaints. I almost considered buying a WP now I am going to keep my Android.
