What to expect at Microsoft's Windows Phone Summit
| by Roydon Cerejo |
Microsoft’s Surface tablet announcement came out of nowhere and bowled us all over with an excellent design and a very functional cover for the screen. Continuing their hot streak, we now have their Windows Phone Summit to look forward to tomorrow. All Microsoft revealed in the invite is that it’s a “sneak peek of the future of Windows Phones”. Well, if you’ve been following up with the rumours and speculations, then logic dictates that they will announce the next version of Windows Phone, a.k.a Apollo or WP 8. This will coincide perfectly well with their tablet announcement of yesterday as well as the new Metro apps that will work across platforms, breathing new life into the stagnating Windows Phone marketplace. It’s unlikely that Microsoft will do away with the current marketplace, but simply change it to the Windows Store where WP 8 users can access Metro apps as well as legacy WP7 apps. The big question on everyone’s mind is that will existing phones be eligible for a WP 8 update and if so, how many of them?
