As we all know, Apple’s iOS is the most advanced OS (operating system) on the market today, Android has sold more phones (as Android runs on most phones created by Samsung, Nokia etc in the past 2-3 years). Microsoft are now trying to slot in where Blackberry and RIM used to be and trying to dethrone the 2 kings of the phone markets, the question is can they do it?
2 days ago Microsoft released the Windows Surface Tablet and now they have released the follow-up phone, Windows Phone 8. Windows Phone (this part is for developers) is now compatible with C and C++ as well as HTML 5 like it did with the Windows Phone 7, which could be useful for all you developers out there.
For all of you Windows Phone 7 users you will not be able to automatically upgrade to WP8 so that is some bad news for you.
There is a new GUI (Graphical User Interface) interface throughout the whole phone. There is also Nokia Map technology and also a so much more which seems to be very similar to Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android operating systems.
I do not have much information on it yet but i’m sure that closer to the release date which is in the Autumn (or the Fall for you Americans) some time 🙂
