Windows Phone 8 Single Biggest Developer Opportunity, Says Microsoft (Tech2)
There is a lot of buzz about Windows 8 as it aims to deliver seamless experience across devices. Apart from the PC and the tablet, Windows 8 will also make its way to the mobile devices. Already several smartphone manufacturers have announced devices based on the new OS. Considering the fact that the earlier Windows phone 7 devices weren’t able to create quite a buzz in the world ruled by iOS and Android, it remains to be seen whether Windows Phone 8 is able to make headway. What will also play a crucial role in the success of Windows Phone 8 OS are the number and quality of apps, which leverage the benefits of the platform and provide a seamless user experience. Fully aware of it, Microsoft has been busy laying the groundwork and has left no stone unturned to woo the developers. Pratima Amonkar, Director – Audience Marketing, Microsoft, shares with us the insights about their various initiatives.
Microsoft Surface Popped Open, Poked, Prodded (The Register)
Teardown The teardown-happy folks at iFixit have taken their Torx wrenches and spudgers to Microsoft's new Surface notebook tablet, but found few surprises inside. They did discover, however, that the Surface is more easily repairable than either the iPad 2 or its follow-on iPad 3 – aka "the new iPad". iFixit gave the Surface a repairability rating of four out of 10, handily trouncing the iPads, which received embarrassing two-out-of-10 ratings.
