AnonD-10196, 03 Feb 2012Why do you need replaceable battery? Do you carry a secondary one with you? I've had many smar... moreIt not like you use entire battery of your phone and u take off the battery and put the fully charged one.
the main point here is what if the battery gets damaged?
You'll have to replace your existing phone with new one as there is no provision for battery replacement. In normal phone I have had battery replaced as battery stopped working and giving full power even after charging it to the fullest.
This is what the concern is.
MrKnowItAll, 03 Feb 2012Well then it's a good thing that most (if not all) Windows Phone 8 phones will run off an ARM ... morebut thats enough to corrupt the ecosystem, and it would not be difficult to create a similar trojan for ARM architechture, remember how symbians were attacked earlier?

Chidi, 03 Feb 2012One more thing that is needed in wp8 is replaceable battery. Why do you need replaceable battery? Do you carry a secondary one with you? I've had many smartphones untill now and none needed a spare battery. All got me through the day with internet usage, music, instant messaging, messaging, and all stuff like that. why do you need a replaceable battery? Just pure curiosity!
oh yeah, i will shift to windows phone if they really do what they have claimed!
good move microsoft, bring the Ios to the third place!

I am still on windows mobile. Logically, if I can wait a bit for this ecosystem... Robert Lichota
"It will remain a separate, optional app but once installed will provide much deeper integration compared to other platforms, to the point where regular and Skype calls will be indistinguishable." = Maemo and N900. Tks Nokia... i'm so sad Maemo is gone... years ahead of it's time...
Will DivX work? Or do we have some other software doing the conversion?
Benz, 03 Feb 2012Ok if it is really true that Windows Phone 8 will also share the same kernel as Windows 8 then... moreWell then it's a good thing that most (if not all) Windows Phone 8 phones will run off an ARM processor. (In case you're too dumb to see the relevance of this, all Windows viruses, trojans, etc. are written for the x86/x64 CPUs, in other words Intel and AMD. They will NOT run on ARM processors, so ha.
I love WP7, I'm on Xperia arc though, gonna wait a bit more for some interesting WP7 devices to show up and then I'll move to it
Ok if it is really true that Windows Phone 8 will also share the same kernel as Windows 8 then look out!!! VIRUSES, TROJANS, WORMS AHEAD!!! You gotta install ANTIVIRUS software on your Mobile Phone!!! LOL!
TruthSeekr, 03 Feb 2012Let's see now: Multi core - check NFC - check Skype - check Looks like they have all the... moreI feel, that the new OS will be fantastic!! :) If that boring UI will be changed, if the OS will support memory cards, NFC, and multi-core CPU, WP8 will make a huge impact in the smart phone world.
seems like iOS will become third position(1st Android,2nd Windows) soon...
alot of people are complaining about less apps in the market now u upgrading to wp8 with wp7 not compact able back to sqaure 1 if u ask me apps and games are not made in a week
Let's see now:
Multi core - check
NFC - check
Skype - check
Looks like they have all the bases covered. If it really is based on Win8 desktop's kernel (i.e. support desktop apps natively) it will blow the competition outta the water!!
I'm really looking forward to this.
My only question now is:
WILL they upgrade the Lumia 800/710 when it comes???
amazing stuff! i mean win 7 apps won't work perfectly on tango devices coz they were not touch optemized, but win 8 will have tons of apps in no time and many will be touch optimized as well,, what i liked too is that microsoft started behaving like microsoft and stopped copying apple with the zune/itunes needed for installing apps or viewing files, and finally allowing micro SD support, and now we xinally can get multi-cores and bigger ram, not they're actually needed but that u can buy a dual X 1.5 ghz android for the same price of a single core WP (with an old gpu) which feels stupid if u ask me! seems that we're heading back to microsoft monopoli on pc world, although apple will still have their fans if they can add big stuff like true multitasking... but adroid seem on their way down from this year and on!
