Missed the Microsoft MWC event? You can now watch it in full!
Microsoft has made it so those who happened to miss today's event (or would like to relive the magic) can sit through the full 38 minutes. Microsoft today unveiled the Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL, as well as making some other notable announcements.
The video isn't from YouTube so you'll need to be on your PC to enjoy the show. What was your favorite part of today's event?

At first they wanted to stick to Symbian..
Project Spartan is the real deal for today's browsers like Chrome or Safari.
We couldn't live stream on our Windows phones either.
Well, maybe a flagship in 2015 with W10, but nothing for sure. I've been waiting for that boat a long time already...
I hate Android but I don't feel like I have any other options... And especially if you want to close the app-gap... Tired of waiting there too...
But... When no one of the other big manufacturers (Samsung, Sony, LG) is interested in making flagship phones with WP, then the platform will die slowly... And that's a fact whether you like it or not!
You should read the stats...
Believe me... I would really like to see WP push Android of the throne, but I stopped believe it's going to happen... Only time will show if you are right, or I was right.
Heard that one before?
Wait and see...
My guess is 2016...,
I just watched it on my Lumia 822. Thankfully we will be getting an upgrade to the Office Apps on our Windows Phone.

Now to some points that I noticed:
1) Outlook app having customizable gestures. Seems to me that Microsoft is listening. Maybe they will give us variety of customizable UI options too without compromising either the existing UI or upcoming functionality.
2) Synchronized universal apps across devices through a Microsoft account. Maybe we are in for a treat and we may be able to respond to our phone communications from PC and vice versa. Are you listening Microsoft?
3) Synchronised devices. This is perhaps the best one of all. Skype integration between tablet and hololens or between a tablet and surface hub is nothing sort of magical. Imagine how many people could work on a single project with a seem less experience, each using their own device may it be a Lumia, surface pro, surface hub, holo lens or a surface(windows 10) PC.
Now this is Microsoft using their years of experience in productivity and collaboration not only to enhance enterprise work but to help consumers too. I mean this is the way forward. Bring these shared experiences to XBox entertainment services. Also, please introduce an online book store with an integrated universal book reading app for students and general consumers alike. This is the power of cloud and mobility. Mobile first, cloud first, cross platform & cross devices integration at its finest. Satya the Man.
The only remarkable thing about it was my impression that Miss White is an alumn of the "Joe B. School for speech and gesture". ^.^
I'm intrigued they launched the 640 XL, I hope this means they are tidying up the line up... Also the merge of the calendar app and outlook.. that was surprising. As the switching process is not necessarily any different, just a little streamlined.
