Windows 7 has done exceptionally well since its release, Microsoft has been constantly working to make the next version of Windows a better one by further improving upon the existing features, and have added new impressive Windows 8 features along with a stunning UI.

Microsoft is now working for Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system, codenamed Apollo, which might be come later this year. Windows Phone 8 Apollo build running on a prototype device and has also provided details about the mobile operating system.

Windows phone 8 will give more facilities and multicore processors and will be tightly integrated with the Windows 8 operating system. Most importantly, all apps for windows phone 7/7.5 will technically support with windows phone 8 as well.

Windows phone 8 is expected to launch with Windows 8 PC operating system. The Windows Reimagined campaign announced for Windows 8 OS will also cover Windows Phone 8 mobile OS.

Windows Phone 8 will be developed closely with the desktop version - Windows 8 since both will carry the same kernel and several other features such as new network model, security features, video, graphics and  more technical oriented.

Microsoft will bring several notable improvements to Windows Phone 8 Apollo and the most significant of these is backward app compatibility. That means all the existing applications can be used on Windows Phone 8. At the launch, Microsoft expects to make 100,000 apps on Windows Marketplace available worldwide.

Microsoft will also add a highly tuned version of Internet Explorer 10 Mobile, supporting the latest web technologies, and it will integrate SkyDrive so that users can back up their data to cloud servers easily.
In added advantage is that Skype will be available as a separate app that can be downloaded from Windows Marketplace and will not be a natively integrated/pre-installed application. The operating system will also bring support for Near Field Communication and Mobile Wallet services to make payments.

Another core feature of Windows Phone 8 will be DataSmart, which help data usage counter on the smartphone and is also available through the mobile operator. That means proper breakdown of data consumption will be available through the Windows Phone 8 smartphone. A similar feature has been integrated into Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

It will also come with a new lens app that will offer several filters, effects and add-ons to improve the camera experience.

Microsoft is expected to reveal Apollo only after shipping the Windows Phone 7.x Tango update meant for low-end devices. Windows Phone 8 Apollo will be released alongside the Windows 8 operating system and we expect both operating systems to be publicly available sometime early next year.
