Windows Phone will play nice with the Windows 8 operating system

While Nvidia’s belief in no way makes this a true fact, it would solve problems for Windows developers who are torn between developing apps for tablet-friendly Windows 8 or smartphone-focused Windows Phone 7. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said he “believes” that apps made for Windows Phone will play nice with the Windows 8 operating system.

Windows 8

Windows 8 is also set to feature a native PDF reader, meaning PC owners will no longer need to install a third-party app such as Adobe Reader to view PDFs. The new PDF reader is known as ‘Modern Reader’, and uses the new AppX application package type, which is similar to that in Windows Phone 7 and likely to be used in Windows Phone 8.

Windows 8 apps use HTML5, tapping into the native capabilities of Windows using standard JavaScript and HTML. New Windows 8 apps are full-screen and touch-optimized, and they easily integrate with the capabilities of the new Windows user interface.

Windows 8 system requirements

Microsoft confirmed our assumption that Windows 8 would have the same system requirements as Windows 7,have system requirements of a 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. Vista requires 15GB of free hard drive space, and Windows 7 requires 16GB.

Windows 8 release date

We originally wrote that we expect the Windows 8 release date to be in early 2012 and on 23 May 2011, Ballmer confirmed that Windows 8 will be released in 2012. He didn’t go as far specifying when in 2012, though.

Windows 8 price

Windows 7 Home Premium costs £99 for an upgrade copy and £149 for the full version. Expect the Windows 8 price to be similar.
