Microsoft Unveils Windows Phone 8
Microsoft Wednesday made its second major mobile announcement of the week, unveiling the mobile version of its upcoming Windows 8 software.
The new software is meant to integrate deeply with the PC version of Windows 8, helping developers build apps for both versions of the platform. Other highlights include NFC support, a mobile wallet feature and a new Nokia-based mapping system.
Windows Phone 8 will be available with new phones online, but those with earlier Windows Phones will be able to upgrade to a new Version 7.8.
