Why Windows 8 PC owners Would Love To Have Windows 8 Phone
If your life is surrounded by computers powered by Windows, then Microsoft in 2012 has unveiled a plan that will force you to ditch your iPhone and Android and jump right over to the Windows Phone 8 powered handsets. Well, the company has released the latest Windows Phone 8 OS for mobile devices that will be borrowing most of its code foundation, including the kernel, from Windows 8 for PC.
The Windows Phone 8 at its core is totally NT kernel. Although, we cannot call it just a kernel but a “Shared Windows Core” reaches up to the file system, security structure, and much more. The most apparent advantage here is to simplify the development of a consistent environment. Developers indulged in creating applications will be able to create an app and driver that can easily be made to run on the Microsoft Surface or any other Windows 8 powered tablet and computer.
Direct X components and SQLite support that relies on the sharing of C and C++ libraries, will make it very simple for developers to code an app once and release it for various platforms like phone, tablet and desktop by tweaking only a few codes here and there. The truth is that shared Windows core will require coders to only change the screen resolution support and have their app available for all the products at a time.
Microsoft has finally taken the bold step by bringing all its Windows domination to the mobile platform, making it hard for buyers to choose iPhone and Android. So, for PC users, the attraction of a phone that can extend their desktop onto their palm is too much to ignore. Furthermore, the new Windows Phone 8 has added a whole new set of features and capability, including maps and NFC.
