    Sorry, but not promising "exciting innovation" but more "fan idiocy" with the number of 4, 5, and 6 users with pent up desire for the new format. As for "innovation" looking at rumored iPhone 8 features:
    • bezel-less screen - Galaxy S8, LG G6, Sony Xperia, Xiaomi Mi Mix, Sharp Aqous
    • wireless charging - too numerous to mention
    • facial recognition - GS8, GN7, Nokia
    • dual cameras - Honor 8, Huawei P10, iPhone 7+, LG V20,
    • AMOLED - Galaxy (forever)
    • waterproof - Galaxy
    Been there, done that, elsewhere...still, we iPhone fans will proclaim it the second coming and all "firsts"...

    • Was it really the tooth fairy that took your teeth?
    • Is Santa real?
    • What about those easter bunnies?
    Ah, the lies that we tell to excite people, only to crush their hopes when they find out the truth....

    It will be more like 8h real life usage... and even that is a big number

    No news of any expedition yet here from Amazon.
    Though there is one important news: since today the standard silver pen is finally available for preorder throughout Europe... delivered by 20th July!
    Well done Microsoft, great launch as usual.

    No notification for the SP part of my order that was placed on the first day they took preorders (Microsoft direct in US). Expected delivery on the type cover and pen next week. I am on calls until 11am and am planning to head to the Microsoft Store at lunch. The only challenge will be whether I can get the same student discount in store if my daughter is not present with me.

    That's because they have streamlined the preorders so much. There are still lines, but now they are electronic lines. You have to get up at 3am and have only a few minutes of a window to successfully order one to get it on launch day. And even then there is a line to pick it up, although much streamlined and very fast. So yeah we are still camping out, but at least at home.

    I'll venture a guess and say it's probably closer to half if you are doing "computer" work, similar to the SP4 advertised 10 hours really being closer to 5. Still, I'll be happy with an upgrade from 5 to 7 hours.

    Well if the new surface offer 7-7.5 hours will be huge improvements over mediocre battery life at SP4 that never got over 5.5 hours.
