All the Microsoft “fans” out there are probably anticipating for the beta release of Windows 8 operating system. Microsoft has already unveiled almost all the features of the Windows Phone 8 codenamed Apollo. The most interesting feature of the new update is the close integration with Windows 8.
Windows Phone 8 is part of the “Windows Reimagined” campaign that Microsoft announced for Windows 8. This makes sense as they’re companion products in every sense of the word. There will be a deep connection between the Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. Applications can be ported from the desktop to the smart phone at ease using the preinstalled interfaces.
“The kernel, multi-core processor support, sensor fusion, security model, network, and video & graphics are all coming to Phone from Windows 8. “ -winsupersite.com
Most of the components used in both the OS’s are the same. This allows developers to “reuse – by far – most of their code” while porting. Also there will be a new syncing client based on ActiveSync, rather than using Zune software to do so.
The picture here is of a game AlphaDrop which was originally written for the Windows 8, and was ported to the Windows Phone 7 using 90% of the original code, but with considerate amount of effort. This effort will be reduced in the coming update of Windows Phone i.e, Apollo.
