Live Blog: Microsoft takes the wraps off Windows Phone 8

We've heard a lot about Windows Phone 8, but we still don't really know that much about it. Some under-the-hood details were released at the developer summit in June. That was followed by a number of device announcements, from Nokia's new Lumia line to the HTC 8X and Samsung's ATIV S. Though we've heard about some of the phones, we really don't know much about the major features of Microsoft's new mobile OS.

All that changes Monday, October 29 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. Microsoft is holding a major press event to finally let the cat out of the bag with Windows Phone 8. Will it have a digital wallet that competes with Passbook and Google Wallet? Are there voice features comparable to Siri? Will Microsoft finally meet the demands of customers who want apps like Instagram, Taxi Magic, and Pandora? Join us live as we learn the answers to these questions and more.
