We all know that one of the biggest corporate features Microsoft has to offer in the desktop world is SharePoint, where work groups are able to collaborate with each other in documents, files, etc. Now Microsoft has turned the service into another mobile feature that provides an additional edge to Windows Phones. It works on any Windows Phone running version 7.5 or higher, and allows you to do a lot of the things you’re already accustomed to working with on the desktop.
This feature isn’t new to Windows Phone though. In the past you always had some access to [...]

If you were wondering just how big is the app ecosystem that will be optimized to take advantage of Windows Phone 8 for whenever you purchase your next device, well the answer is complicated. Microsoft has finally launched the Windows Phone 8 SDK to developers, so for many of the non-premium developers that got an early head start, day zero starts today. There’s a catch though, since if you’re a Windows Phone 8 developer, or are planning to be one, the system doesn’t work on anything that’s not a 64-bit Windows 8 PC. Obviously that makes the chore of porting [...]

The crux of the beef is this: Microsoft's new operating system, Windows Phone 8, has more advanced capabilities and won't be available until the fall. When it launches, it will require new, as-yet-unannounced hardware. No current hardware, including the vaunted Nokia Lumia line, has the necessary horsepower to run the new OS. Yet Microsoft continues to sell its existing WP7 devices even as the fuse burns down to their extinction. Is this wrong? YMMV, but if you ask me ... no. Not at all.
Microsoft is still in the process of launching Windows Phone 8 in San Francisco, and we’ve already confirmed some bad news, that just got solved by some good news. The rumors were strong regarding the fact that Windows Phone 8 won’t be supporting current Windows Phone 7 devices, which was a direct stab in the back for actual owners of new devices like the Lumia 900. Now that we read all the features that will be included on Windows Phone 8 devices, it makes sense for the new platform to not support legacy hardware since there aren’t any NFC chips or multi-core [...]
