Windows Phone now will have whole new features , recently in the microsoft summit microsoft confirmed that Windows Phone 8 will support not only multi-core processors but a range of display sizes. Rather than the single core devices with WVGA touchscreens, the new Windows Phones will also have provision to support chips with two or more cores along with up to 720p 1280 x 720 16:9 displays along with some new storage and NFC features.
The new windows phone 8 will have a 15:9 aspect WXGA 1280 x 768 resolution that is a total of three display sizes. Application built for Windows Phone 7 already in the Windows Phone Marketplace will run automatically on the larger resolution displays that will be scaled up to fit the screen. A new thing that you will find now is that there’s is a microSD card support for removable storage, this was a major problem before which was adressed to microsoft but not every windows phone will have this.
Alonf with all the changes made Microsoft has also added NFC capability to the Windows Phone 8, This is “the most complete wallet experience” in the new Wallet Hub as far as the company says. It will support third party services via an API such as coupons, balances on other services etc and will have a secure payment system.
Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore said today “We’ve seen Google, with their wallet, put the secure element in the device” . “The side-effect is that some mobile operators have removed those elements because they want their customers to be able to move their payment system from one phone to the next.”
Microsoft will partner with Orange among other carriers for mobile wallet systems in Europe. In the US, Microsoft has been working with Isis – the combined effort of AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and others – and will have a solution “over the course of the next year” though not at launch.
