If you saw Microsoft unveil Windows Phone 8 and were disappointed that it only had a handful of conspicuous new features to show, such as that new Start screen and NFC support, don't worry: that's just the tip of the iceberg. Senior product manager Greg Sullivan (not pictured here) tells Pocket-lint that much of the information provided so far had to be revealed early to please developers and IT managers, many of whom can't wait until the last minute. Unlike a certain rival in Cupertino, Microsoft has a range of partners to work with and can't just be ready to go "hours after" the OS is announced, like those that control both the hardware and the software. That split is good news to us, as it sounds like there's a raft of public-facing Windows Phone 8 features waiting to surface between now and the end of the year -- whatever impressions we had in June may have been conservative.
