Microsoft pushes big news in this week, just after their Surface tablet, today they announced the new smart phone platform: Windows Phone 8.

OK, what the main feature of Windows Phone 8 ? What the big different with Windows Phone 7 and Windows phone 7.5? I think the main changes based on previous Windows phone is: Windows phone 8 shares core with Windows 8 ! It means: Windows phone 8 will use the same core with Windows 8, and more, it means Windows Phone 8 will be more and more closer Windows 8, and further more, it means Windows Phone 8 will be just a kind of Windows 8 System. All applications on Windows 8 can run on Windows Phone 8 or just need minor changes and adjustments. This is really a new and great feature ! It will benefit to not only consumers, but also developers, and hardware companies.
