  • I take it that the surface isn't out in Poland?
  • Good guess, Spenser.
  • Isn't out of the chambers in Poland. too soon?
  • Not very funny
  • Wen in {{insert_country}}?
  • India
  • India is confirmed Next year
  • Petoria
  • Japan? I guess never :/
  • Yeah, would want in Japan.
  • Argentina. Never.
  • Nigeria, Maybe next life time
  • For Argentina, maybe not Surface. But Lumia, yes. I'd venture 3-6 months, though.
  • Guatemala
  • What about America??
  • October 6
  • American doesn't need a launch event... The money needs to be well spent on other marketing tactics.... Nobody that needs to is gonna see a worthless Lumia Launch event... All Americans care about is iDroid, and MS needs to change that in 2016....
    If course I said that in 2010
    2015.... But, who's counting...
  • America doesn't need a launch event, but it would be nice to have a launch announcement so we know when we can buy it.
  • Better bring sausage..
  • That's the thing I'm giving on my birthday. ;p
  • I am glad I'm not invited... Lol
  • Everyone is invited brother...
  • Oh, no!
  • And why is Poland
  • Because, just maybe, Polish like WindowsPhone?????????????
  • What?! No!.. Thats blasphemy!
  • Cause George W. Bush once praised them as the new Europe? :D
  • Because we love Windows Phones and because we develop Cortana for you guys. Surprising?
  • Yes. That's surprising... But, I'm not surprised.
  • not impressed you mean?
  • So a "launch event". Does that mean the Lumia's will be on sale then?
  • "Will showcase the surface line of products and maybe windows phone for a few minutes if there's still time."
  • The product launch clowns are ready!   
  • Wtf where did you find this ? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It came up in a 'windows phone product launch' Google search and was something Microsoft did, clueless as to why they'd think a bunch of clowns in a truck would be a good idea for product promotion.
  • Good
  • January for South East Asia.
  • Release it somewhere already. Need to check the in depth reviews.
  • I love how everyone reads the head line and then asks a question in the comments that was in the article why would people prefer to ask when they can answer themselves? Too lazy to look for their own answers.....
  • Poland is a big country and we already invaded UK, Netherlands and Germany :P
  • Hey, Rogizinski, do you know anyone who does plumbing??? LOL!!! Actually, I employ a Polish driver in my taxi firm. He is an absolute nut job! Always happy, and doesn't know when to stop! He'd work 24/7 unlike some of our lazy, whinging English drivers!!
  • Why Poland? Well, believe it or not, in Europe, Poland is an important Country. When Samdung release new roms, it is invariably Poland that has first pickings. When de-ving on droid, the first releases were country code XEO - Poland. Samdung also have a development / research facility there. So, It seems logical that an event would be held in their 'back yard'. Secondly, Poland is strategically placed between western and eastern Europe.
  • I wonder if it's like MS keynote. 30 seconds for Lumia and 2 hours for Surface.
  • First of all there's no Surface Book availability in Poland and it won't be sold here. What's more important Intel (yes Intel) is working on polish Cortana and that's the news of the day for me :)
  • Miarkus where did u got this info about Cortana? Sounds unbelievable... And yes, there was no info about book coming out in Poland :(
  • Intel Poland spilled it on their facebook page, post got removed after a while
  • Every time I see the white Lumia 950xl backside Im droowling I think the white one looks so nice! Cant wait for my pre order to be deliverd ^^!
