So, in truth, anyone at Microsoft would tell you the exact opposite, namely that WP8 is in fact an entirely new OS, with a thin amount of UI functionality (borrowed from WP7's UI design philosophy) layered on top of it.

I have been on Android (VZW) and overdue for an upgrade. I was very excited by WP8 and looking forward to switching. I wanted the 920 but was disappointed when it was ATT only as ATT service in our area is lousy.
I looked at the 8x when it was released but don't really want a phone that is almost the size of a Galaxy SIII but has the screen of a much smaller phone; I am also not too excited about no expandable storage and only 16gb onboard.
So I switched my sights to the Odyssey in hopes it would be a VZW version of the Ativ-S and would have a larger screen, expandable storage etc. Now that turns out to be a 4" free phone.
So now I have to decide if I should wait to see what comes out after the first of the year in hopes we get some other high end WP8 phone like a 920 variant for VZW or go with another high end Android phone and look at WP8.x at my next upgrade.
