Windows Phone 8 Announced…Twitter Blows UpBy: Richard Stalker - June 20, 2012
Today at the Windows Phone Developer Summit, Microsoft announced the Windows Phone 8. I can garner 2 things from this. Number one being that a lot of people who bought the WP7 3 months ago are pissed because there is no direct upgrade from WP7 to WP8. The second is that the divide between the Windows 8 operating system and the WP8 operating system is as small as it has ever been and we could see one day that they will share an operating system.
According to how our world works now, Twitter immediately began catching on fire and Windows Phone 8 started trending almost immediately. Here are some of the best Tweets that I could find:
“Windows Phone 8 will be built around the same core components as Windows 8″ http://t.co/JkPPTOLi . Nice! Expect highly compatible malware!
windows phone 8 is trending? Thank god my shitty windows phone is getting an upgrade, woo
Windows Phone 8 looks fantastic. A lot of great improvements and new features announced. Now I need to see some hardware.
So you can still run Windows 95 apps on your W8 desktop. But you can’t run Windows Phone 8 on your 3 month old phone. lulls.
No upgrades from Windows Phone 7 to 8. What’s next, apps for Windows Phone 7 won’t be compatible with 8 and will have to be rewritten?
Plus, for windows phone 7.5 phones to be fully compatible with windows phone 8, microsoft would have had to cripple windows phone 8.
Not long ago Steve Balmer made fun of Google having Chrome and Android. Now MSFT has Windows 8, RT, and Phone 8
I want the Windows Phone 8 ! haha
the windows phone 8 loooks sick!!!!!
Back-reading the Windows Phone 8 coverage. I’m still…idk…pessimistic abt WP. There’s something wrong w/ it. It’s not multi-OEM friendly.
Windows Phone 8? I think I’ll stick with my Pokédex!
next phone will be a nokia windows 8 phone for sure. I already liked the 900, and now windows 8 will make the next one even better.
