Is WP8 going to be worth the wait?

I'm out of contract at the minute and have an itchy phone finger. I've had an Omnia 7 for the last 18 months (great OS, classic phone), but I'm not sure I can resist a HTC One X until the end of October. I've been a HTC fan since the the Orange SPV days and have enjoyed flashing many of their phones. Since Android is the spiritual successor to Windows Mobile these days, I reckon playing with it would be great fun.

On the other hand WP8 sounds great.

But it's months away!!!

So is it going to be worth the wait or should I just pull the trigger on the HTC?
