As long as Windows 8 released, Windows phone Apollo 8 is coming out soon properly in October or Christmas’ day. But the real release date is not told by Microsoft yet. I believe all of us will keep our eyes on the accurate date to come. Here is the latest information about Window phone 8.

Here are three remarkable new features for Windows Phone 8.

1. Changes of Start Screen

Microsoft has officially announced that the new Start screen of Windows phone 8 in details. The Start screen keeps live tiles that show a lot of information for you in one screen but have more options for the size of tiles and the ways you arrange them.

2. Support for dual-core CPU based mobile phones

Windows Phone 8 will be able to run on dual-core CPU based mobile phones, supporting for multi-core hardware.

Since Windows phone 7 leased in 2010, 1GHz was the minimum mobile operating system requirement which updated to run on chipsets lower than 1GHz. Microsoft newly announced set of Windows Phone 8 manufacturers: Samsung, Huawei, HTC and Nokia. And there is no doubt that Nokia will be the first to support the new hardware using dual-core processors.

3. Removable storage supported

Windows Phone 7 needs 8GB (the minimum specification for internal storage) to run the OS but no support for portable micro SD cards. However, as Windows Phone finally sorts out its SD card support, WP8 supports for removable storage like micro SD cards.

The Micro SD cards can be used to store music, photos and video, along with the installation of apps. So, Windows phone 8 might have the internal storage requirements dropped to be 1GB or less might be the new standard.

At last, I think Windows Phone still needs to catch up with the other smartphone operating systems (like Android) on features. We’re still getting our ears on a proper release date of Windows Phone 8.

We have so many personal data on our mobile phone that we also have choices that losing all files on it. So, what if you accidentally deleted some photos you took on your phone, or something you need just gone missing? Is there any way to recover data from Windows phone? Look at this Windows phone data recovery solution.

As you may know, Microsoft company is going to make a big announcement June 16, 2012. A tablet running Windows RT will be the main topic. I’ll tell you what I knew just now.

So, what is Windows RT?

You may have heard that Windows 8 and Windows RT are different. Microsoft is going to make a part of the latest Windows 8 version to run on ARM processors called Windows RT. As with Windows NT, what does “RT” actually mean? Why on it is named similar to WinRT ( the shortened name for Windows Runtime)? I believe that most of us people can’t understand it. Hold on! WinRT is not the abbreviation for Windows RT? They are not the same thing? No! Do not mistake WinRT for Windows RT!

Windows Runtime (which is called WinRT) runs on both Windows 8 and Windows RT. I refers to the collection of APIs that developers can write software interacted with hardware. But Windows RT is named for Windows 8 on ARM but is a special edition of Windows 8.

What is ARM?

ARM processors power virtually all iOS, Android, and other mobile devices on the market. ARM has gained so much traction in large part because of its better battery management.

So, how to distinguish Windows 8 and Windows RT?

There are several differences between Windows 8 and Windows RT which may cause Windows RT to fail while Windows 8 succeeds.

1.Windows RT can run only on ARM-powered devices.

2.Windows RT has a Desktop mode, but it will be restricted to pre-installed, Microsoft-produced software.

3. As Windows RT comes device encryption.

4.None of x86/x64 apps runs on Windows RT.

What apps can run on Windows RT?

If the applications can run on Windows 8 Metro, they can run on Windows RT. It looks like no way to easily distinguish Windows RT based on tablet from Windows 8 based on tablet, which could result in buyer confusion.

It is no doubt that both consumers and manufacturers are interested in Windows RT. Let’s look forward to it’s release.
