    Lumia 950 & 950XL, Surface Pro 4, new Band, maybe a new Surface (non pro). If there is a surprise it might be a HDMI stick (think Chromecast/roku/firetv/appletv competitor). I know they have a wireless display adapter but its just a device that accepts a signal to put on your dumb display.

    Me i went Windows phone already (got an $80 Lumia 640 LTE with no plans to $pend premium device money on a 950 model).

    I just want to hear about some good games for XB1. Mine is just sitting in the box waiting for something worthwhile. New Surface would be a nice replacement for a dying laptop too.

    I still want to see this in person:

    - I think it's $3k for a development kit.

    Good lord, that plays out like a commercial inside a science fiction movie.

    It was an pretty good event. New ms band looks pretty neat. The desktop mode for the phones looks like a nice feature. Surface pro got a substancial upgrade, and the surface book, while impressive, looks like an answer to a question few people asked.

    New Surface Book pro is intriguing, though priced accordingly. It fixes what's wrong with most 2 in 1's, Sony did something similar but it didn't catch on maybe it will this time. And the discrete gpu knocked it out. Then again $1500.

    Seeing that is why I went to the early launch events but they didn't have it.

    Here's the Lumia 950 compared to the iPhone 6s and the Samsung Galaxy S6:

    Microsoft Lumia 950 vs. Apple iPhone 6s vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 - GSMArena.com

    It stacks up well and leads in a couple areas... and UNLIKE SAMSUNG SINCE THEIR STUPID CHANGE OF HEART, the Lumia has a user-removable battery AND a micro-SD card slot. Also said battery is a monster. It's a little thicker than the other 2, but most people entomb their phones in huge bumpers and cases anyway, so... whatever.
