Windows Phone 8 Consumer Features to be Unveiled
Chinese Windows Phone site, WPDang reports that the Windows Phone 8 consumer-oriented features will be unveiled at Nokia World on September 5, 2012. Up until now we’ve only seen a handful of developer-oriented features at the Windows Phone Summit in San Francisco. We know there will be a new start screen, a new web browser, a shared Windows 8 core, and a number of new ways to build apps, but that’s about it. If Windows Phone 8 is anything like Windows Phone 7.5, I believe we can expect a whole slew of new features integrated with the operating system. Remember how long our Windows Phone 7.5 preview was?
LiveSide also reports that we have been seeing a lot of Nokia branded Windows Phone 8 codenames showing up around the web. Very little is known about these codenamed devices being tested other than the Windows Phone 8 build numbers. You’ve got a Lumia 910, 920, 1001, Champagne, Burr, Phi, Prodigy, and AC/DC. Hopefully we’ll hear more about these devices come September.
In the meantime, mark your calendars for September 5th to hear lots more about Windows Phone 8.
