There’s nothing set in stone so, you know, don’t hold your breath until we hear something official. Still it doesn’t seem that unlikely as Windows 8 is expected in 2012 anyway and the MWC 2012 is a big event, a fitting place for presenting a converged desktop/mobile OS. The next iteration of Microsoft’s OS will be the first to be designed to work on both desktops and mobile devices like tablets.
If you’re keen to try out the new Metro UI on your PC (or Mac) you can check out this article for download links. It’s free to try and works pretty much fine and without major hiccups. It’s also pretty easy to install, hopefully taking less of your precious time too.

Cyan Nokia Lumia 800 hits Three UK - news

25 November, 2011

If you like the Nokia Lumia 800, but find its primary black color a bit too conservative for your taste, we've got some great news for you. The cyan version of the WP smartphone just went on sale at the UK carrier Three.
The news was confirmed by the company's official Twitter account, but its official website still doesn't mention anything about a cyan Lumia 800. So, if you want to get yourself a shiny new cyan unit, you'd have to visit one of Three's brick and mortar stores.
But for the different color of the non-painted plastic unibody, the cyan Lumia 800 is identical to its black sibling. There are no changes to either the materials used or the internals of the device, but we guess the color change is enough to make it targeted at quite different audience.
It's yet unclear when the other carriers will get the cyan and pink versions of the Lumia 800, but those should come up soon enough.
