In a recent statement, Microsoft disclosed how Windows 8 will operate at its Build conference keynote. When compared to Windows Phone 7, Windows 8 will support similar applications development technologies. Codenamed as Apollo, Windows 8 kernel is expected to offer support for Win32 and HTML5. Powered with ARM processor, it could offer an impressive 5 second boot up times, battery saving options as well as background updates of live tiles.
It could boast fully touch-friendly interface. Some familiar Windows games are also supported in the new Windows Phone 8. Developing a Windows Phone version of a Windows 8 kernel will require change of one line of code.
Windows Phone 7 did not permit any development of apps by making use of native code. Microsoft can easily switch them to advanced Windows 8 kernel as they all are using Silverlight, XAML and XNA.
Using Windows 8 kernel, users will be able to benefit from several processors, cores and more displays on your mobile phone.
