Windows Phone Summit is taking place right now, and I’m watching it Live over the the WEB at http://aka.ms/wpsummit
Frankly, there’s nothing new I didn’t know, but now it’s official by Microsoft.
There are about 9 new features in the future Windows Phone 8
- Shared core between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, includes Native Code apps!
- Support of Multi Core CPU’s
- Support for additional 2 screen resolution: 720p, WXGA
- Removable MicroSD support
- Internet Explorer 10, with HTML5 and better JS performance
- New start screen with more tiles and resizing options
- Wallet experience
- Nokia Map technology replaces Bing Maps
- Support for NFC
UPDATE: Recommendation for W8/WP8 developers:
Build apps using XAML/C#/VB.NET and Games using DirectX/C++.
Now the more interesting question is: When the SDK will be ready so I can put my hands on.
