Do you trust Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 8? If you are the Federal Republic of Germany, the answer to that question is "no". Last week internal documents from IT professionals within the government showed a strong rejection of the new operating system calling it "unacceptable for the federal administration and the operators of critical infrastructure".

Surface street art hits Germany

Looks like the first confirmed sighting of the Graffiti art Surface ads have been spotted, this time in Munich.

While we have seen them in the US and France this remains one of the first to be spotted in another country. With Windows 8 and Surface about to be unleashed could we be about to see them go out to all countries where Surface has been made available for pre-order?

Even though some variants of Surface have already sold out in the UK, we haven’t seen any ads at all. If you have seen ads in your country (apart from the US and France) please tell us!

German retailer Media Markt has listed both the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 on its website with release dates of November 1st. Both Windows Phones are expected to be made available on that day, should the reported date hold true, and will be priced at €449 (approx. £360) and €649 (approx. £520) respectively.

Update: It seems Media Markt has bumped the date from November 1st to November 15th. This change has occured the same day a German Vodafone store stated on its Facebook page that they will be stocking the Lumia Windows Phone 8 handsets at the start of November. We'll have to see if the date sticks. Thanks, Schneppe, for spotting the alteration!

HTC 8X on its way to O2 DE

O2 Germany will be stocking the HTC 8X, according to a tweet published by the carrier. The Windows Phone is also heading to O2 in the UK, so it makes sense that Telefonica would also add the smartphone to listings in other markets.

If the time frame supplied in the tweet is indeed accurate, we'll be looking at a late October launch on the German carrier.

Hamburg, Germany

One of our eagle-eyed readers spied this Nokia banner hanging in Hamburg, Germany today. It shows Nokia is gearing up for their round 2 with Windows Phone and the Lumia 920.

The banner, in its simplicity shows a 920 peeking in with the phrase 'Jeder Liebt Ein Comeback' or 'Everyone loves a comeback'. Indeed, we wouldn't disagree with that assessment at all. Thanks, Damon B., for the photo!
