If you don't mind, please do not include "all the WP8 features revealed." I want to keep the focus on Nokia.
That being said, I was honestly expecting at LEAST three phones, not two. I wouldn't be surprised if a "cheaper phone" is announced in the next couple of months, though. Might be a low-key announcement.

A wireless charging solution that isn't flat. How lame is that? At least they could have copied Palm's Touchstone from 2009! But I guess that would only matter if the phone's screen is turned on while it's docked on the charging pad.
Oh, and I really wanted to see a successor to the Lumia 710.

I was expecting a release date. Well, more like hoping, not expecting. Since there were no AT&T, Verizon, etc... reps scheduled to speak, I figured there wouldn't be a date mentioned.Talk to me about Windows Phone, Windows 8, XBOX, art, animation, design, or anything! Be sure to follow me on Twitter and friend me on Facebook (say you're from here or I may not accept)

I really wanted a release date. Please do the Apple thing and announce and release quickly. I also wanted the phones to have a liquipel like coating. What good is the most durable phone in the world when it still has water as an enemy.

- A beautiful, next generation design phone - seriously, look at the pic below.
- A killing camera, with unmatched software enhancement
- Most responsive touch screen in the business (with its own "retina" display")
- Although not mentioned, WP8 features deep Skype integration and FREE VOIP calling feature AVAILABLE TO 3RD PARTY APPS.
I think what I really wanted, as a musician, was RichRecording. Ah well, maybe next time.

The things I did NOT expect on the 820 in particular were:
- Wireless charging
- Changeable covers
- Awesome wireless docking solutions
- Super sensitive touchscreen
The one thing I expect any 2012 phone to have is Gorilla Glass. That alone is enough to keep me from getting one. I could've lived without the wireless charging or even the exchangeable covers.

I would have expected release dates and prices. I would have also expected a HD screen in the 820. Cyan in the flagship 920.
In addition I think a 720 would have been nice, as well as a tablet.

Honestly, it's mostly Microsoft that I was expecting more from... like for Microsoft to have a nearly finished build of Windows Phone 8 would've been nice.
However, it's clear this isn't the case.
