Leaked: 8 Awesome Features of Windows Phone 8
Since yesterday, leaks on the yet-to-be-released Windows Phone 8 mobile platform -- codenamed Apollo -- have been spilling across the Internet, and the refresh looks to have a whole darn lot of potential. The details come to us via PocketNow, who supposedly acquired an early copy of a Microsoft video that shows off the different features, and Microsoft blogger Paul Turrott, who has insider connections with the software company. Here, we've gathered eight standout features of Windows Phone 8 that are worth knowing about.
Support for multi-core processors
Better screen resolutions, better pixel density
Deep integration with Windows 8 and SkyDrive
According to the leaks, Windows Phone 8 will make use of the same codebase as its desktop platform counterpart, Windows 8--including the kernel, networking capabilities, security models and multimedia support.
Moreover, previous demonstrations of Windows 8 have flaunted the operating system's ability to consolidate its different services under the umbrella of the SkyDrive cloud. This will apparently be a continuing theme with Windows Phone 8, which is also getting SkyDrive integration and cloud sync to make your content available across all Windows devices you own.
