Cell Phones: Windows Phones Are Making A Splash
In a market characterized by change and innovation, it’s not shocking to see new players emerge.
What is surprising, perhaps, is that the new kid on the block has been around for a while. Windows
Phones offer users a choice: an advanced mobile operating system with the backing of one of the
most recognizable and applied software systems worldwide.
Under the Hood
When you dig into the Windows Phone 8 operating system, you’ll find that the technology is consistent
across platforms. Based on the solid Windows 8 core, a Windows Phone 8 brings together incredible
performance and common networking, security and filing systems. It offers multi-core processor support
for the most advanced hardware, and even incorporates NFC sharing, which is a wireless technology that
lets users share data over short distances by simply tapping their phone with another NFC device.
Accessorize Your Windows Phone
Apps have taken the smartphone market by storm, and there’s no denying that they play an important
role in our daily lives. With more than 100,000 apps in the Windows Phone Marketplace and an average
of 200 new titles being released each day, there’s an incredible selection of apps available,
including Gameloft titles, news, entertainment and business apps.
Features and Functionality
With colourful Live Tiles on the start screen, you can customize every aspect of your screen.
Select between three sizes of tiles, and arrange them so that the features you use most are there
at a touch. If you’re a social butterfly, arrange your Live Tiles with social media apps, texting
and email links up front. More of a sports fan? Make sure that you have all of your team’s results
available quickly and easily. With Nokia mapping built in, you get detailed maps and directions, and
can store maps offline so that they’re still available without a data connection. A fast and efficient
operating system incorporating innovative ideas and technologies, Windows Phone 8 will work with your
busy lifestyle to provide a superior user experience.
