Do you guys believe that there will be a big diversity of armors/weapons between factions?
Do you think that, for example Orcish armors/weapons may appear only in DC and Elven only in AD?

Yes, I believe there will be large amounts of diversity between factions. The developers want players to be able to recognize those of their own faction and those of the opposite faction just by looking at their avatar. This would be difficult to accomplish if say, a Nord and a High Elf were both clad in full orcish; it would be difficult to clearly distinguish the two from a distance.

So both race and armor styles are being used for differentiation.

Well they said that factions in fact will haw some set of armor that will be there "own", but eventually you will be able to craft it with Blacksmithing in any faction. They also mention they trying to make so that even if 2 players from opposite faction wear same armor, you will be bale to tell them apart by there race traits.

Ah, you're right about that; they do want players to be able to smith whatever armor they want. I'm guessing a bit of effort has to be put into it, but if you want to wear another faction's armor you can. Though I wouldn't imagine this to be the majority.

Although I'm not sure if racial traits clearly distinguish races from one another; a breton and nord are tough to tell apart asides from one is taller than the other.

Hah, not like that. But the developers want an "us and them" mentality when it comes to factions. If everyone looked the same or wore the same gear, that's more difficult to do.

okok realy we dont need to start a new thread for everything there has been one for this already. and i know this forum is kinda dead lateley but that doesnt realy mean we have to do that all the time.

But to answer your questions: The Armors available to buy and those that drop will be the regional equivalent. So if youre in Skyrim. youll get horned helmets and all that stuff. If youre in High Rock itll more look like Knights Armor. If youre in Orsinum it will be Orcish and so on.
Armors from other places and even other factions will be there ,but as a rarity. You will also be able to craft it yourself with the apropriate skill.
But its going to be harder to obtain than the one for your own faction.
