Details on Microsoft Windows Phone 8 Leaked
Windows Phone 8, Microsoft’s next mobile operating system, is expected to include support for multicore processors, microSD card storage and NFC capabilities, Pocketnow.com reports, citing a leaked video hosted by senior vice president and Windows Phone manager Joe Belfiore. While the current version features a similar “Metro” user interface as Microsoft’s Windows 8 OS for desktops, it uses a Windows CE core that is quite different from desktop Windows. Windows Phone 8, according to the leaks, will be based on a desktop Windows core. Windows Phone 8 is rumored to be launching sometime in the fourth quarter; Microsoft declined to comment on the reports.
