Takes a lot more than a new phone to "excite" me.... but I have to say Google (and the phones that support it) always have a more interesting product line than Windows or Apple.

I'm excited more for the Google Announcement. I'm curious about the MS announcement -- can the Windows Phone 8 devices compete?
