WINDOWS PHONE 8 IS ALREADY BEING TOUTED AS THE NEXT BIG THING. A LOOK AT WHAT IS NEW IN THE MOBILE OPERATING SYSTEM.
The launch of the iPhone in 2007 shook the mobile industry out of its complacency. It not only destroyed the dominance of Nokia in the market, but also forced companies to rethink and rework their operating systems. Spurred by this challenge, Microsoft worked on and came up with a brand new operating system. Although the Windows Phone 7 had its share of shortcomings, it still represented out-of-the-box thinking as far a mobile operating system was concerned. A couple of years on, we now have the Windows Phone 8 OS. It is making its main rivals, iOS and Android, sit up and take notice.
