Confirmed

Just moments after we posted about a 256 GB Surface Pro showing up on CDW’s website for $1,199, we have received word from a Microsoft source that the company is in fact gearing up to launch the new tablet SKU officially.

At this time we have no further information except that Microsoft has been “prepping for this announcement” and the release of the tablet on Microsoft’s Store should be right around the corner.

AT&T has still not yet officially announced the Nokia Lumia 920, which is expected to come to the US carrier late next week (November 9th), but we're already quite certain of the price tag. 

Best Buy had a pre-sale and just the other day, eBay (with Best Buy) also had the Lumia 920 up for early orders. Both times the phone was listed at $149.99 (with a $599 off contract price). To us, that's all the info we really need but if you wanted just a little more proof of that super aggressive price tag, you can take a gander above in our pic.

The Nokia Lumia 920 - Coming Sunday, November 4th

Recently Windows Phone Central went on record that AT&T’s plans for the Lumia 920 (and presumably other Windows Phones) was to have an in-store sale date of Sunday, November 4th. We now have had another confirmation via a well placed source in AT&T that this is information is accurate.

We also previously mentioned that on October 21st AT&T is planning to finally announce the above release date and the pricing of the Lumia 920. That info is also still precise.

Presumably a pre-order date will follow on that Friday the 26th, giving just over one week time before the phone can be bought in stores. Much like the Lumia 900 release, we assume that if you pre-order, you will get the phone on Friday, November 2nd before residential deliveries stop for the weekend.

Custom Hubs & Accent colors for Windows Phone 8? Yes, please.

Earlier in the day we reported that Microsoft was going through the User Voice feedback system and signing off on feature requests from end users.

In short, if a feature is being positioned to be included in Windows Phone 8.x, it gets stamped with a generic “Planned” label from the site Admin for Windows Phone. It is then followed by a comment noting “Just a quick update to let the Windows Phone community know that this feature has been announced for Windows Phone 8”.

Indeed, many of the features such as Arabic language support, NFC and 720P displays have been publicly confirmed back at the June 20th Summit, making this forum cleanup standard practice.

But out of the 22 “Planned” suggestions, three stuck out...
