Not Windows Phone 8, but Windows 8 phones. I want an x86 telephone running full Windows 8 with a UI to make phone calls from. Make it slim and trim with a high resolution screen. Make sure it has Intel WiDi so I can wirelessly connect a screen, keyboard, mouse and network connection. Make it so that I can charge it wirelessly using a charging pad located in my desk chair and car seat.
This supreme device of the universe would let me carry my PC with me everywhere and would make it so I wouldn't even need to remove it from my pocket at work. With a bluetooth wireless headset, I can even use it as a phone at my desk.
I have a Samsung Series 7 Slate with Windows 8 CP which I'm absolutely in love with, make a phone version of it and I'll be in paradise.
