Countdown to Windows Phone 8

Posted on October 25, 2012


While everyone is excited for the release of Windows 8 on October 26, 2012, another related product is set to be launched a few days later.  Microsoft has started to send out invites to the Windows Phone 8 press event on October 29, 2012 in San Francisco.

Windows Phone 8 Press Event

Last June, some of the new features of Windows Phone were revealed during the Windows Phone Summit.  Just to recap, here are the eight new features announced during the said event:

  • Latest and Greatest Hardware
  • Internet Explorer 10
  • Native Code: Killer Games
  • Better Sharing with NFC
  • The Most Complete Wallet Experience
  • Nokia Map Technology
  • Windows Phone 8 for Business
  • The Start Screen

It is said that there are other new features that have yet to be announced.  Last September, Nokia, HTC, and Samsung has given us a glimpse on the new Windows Phone devices, though most of the announcements had to do with the hardware.  Let the countdown begin to the unveiling of the new Windows Phone 8.
