A flurry of news is coming in that Windows Phone 8 is now official. A quick round of specs:
- Screens up to 1280 x 768 (so standard 1280×720 available)
- Multicore processors (engadget says up to 64)
- External Storage on SD card
- C++ native code
- One platform for desktop/tablet/phone, porting apps from one device type easier than before. Full fledged NT kernel for coherent ecosystem.
- Wallet function
- IE 10, double HTML5 performance over WP7.5
Hopefully, Nokia decides not to be Nokia and tries to push the specs and not go for the standard bare minimum for the next gen Lumia.
