    WVGA isn't really cutting it anymore in the high-end space. Reply

    1280x720 and 1280x768 are both supported. Reply

    Seeing as they didn't read this article, I doubt your response will be read either. Reply

    Hi please postt a full fledged article on Windows Phone summit. Also ask Microsoft about if current devices running windows phone 7.5 (like mine) can be upgraded to Windows Phone 8. Reply

    Based on how much of this is hardware-dependent, it seems unlikely. Reply

    Why not? It's like saying iOS is fragmented because the 3G can't run iOS 5.0. I'm assuming because of the change in kernel and the switch to multi-core processors, it's not so simple to just make everything run WP8. Legacy hardware not getting the new OS is just not that surprising.

    Android fragmentation is a way bigger problem, every manufacturer has a different implementation and a different update cycle, which are two problems that Microsoft doesn't face.

    At the current development pace of smartphones and tablets, sadly, fragmentation is just a reality. The original iPad and some iTouches won't get iOS 6. If even obsolescence is a guarantee, it's in this segment of the industry. Reply

    You mean like when Android releases ICS and 8 months later, a phone (GS2) that was unbeatable in benchmarks one month prior to its release, is still awaiting the stupid update with no ETA?

    Really?

    Interesting.
    Imagine QualComm will be using the SnapDragon Dual Core (an A15 like implementation), however the graphics core...... is Adreno 3XX ready? Is Adreno 225 driver compatible with WP8... can it deliver the features?

    Intel is using an ATOM derived SOC to power a phone called the Orange... I wonder how long before we see Intel 22nm SOCs powering a WP8 device?

    The Adreno 225 supports DirectX, so the S4 Pro shouldn't be a strict requirement with its 3XX GPU. Reply

    The cross platform compatibility sounds pretty great. Microsoft is really late to the game but they seem to have a great user experience and the software and developer support to back it up. Once Windows 8 tablets become big then Windows Phone will start to take off and in two years they can combine Windows RT into one cross platform OS from phone to desktop that will run on ARM and do everything most users and even professionally need. x86 will still be needed for workstations and servers but Microsoft has that covered too.

    In about 2 years, we'll see news about how one by one every OEM gave up.

    Great SW platform, but way too late...
