Windows Phone 8 was unveiled in June 2012. It marks a move away from Windows Phone 7 by running on the same kernel as the desktop version of Windows 8. This makes the OS much more versatile for developers, who'll be able port apps much easier from other platforms (meaning loads more apps for you!). The OS also features seamless connectivity with Windows 8.
Among the key features of this OS are a highly-customisable Tile-based Start screen, added camera features, faster web browsing with Internet Explorer 10, and support for multi-core processors and HD screen resolutions.
Owners of Windows Phone 7 handsets won't be able to upgrade to this version of Windows Phone, nor can they download apps developed for it. Despite seemingly leaving it out in the cold, Microsoft have stated that they'll continue to update, maintain and support Windows Phone 7.
No available handsets with those specifications. Why not select something else?
