Microsoft Windows Phone 8

Verge Review

By Dieter Bohn and Chris Ziegler “This is Windows Phone. No, for real this time.” That’s what I thought when I started hearing about Windows Phone 8 a few months ago.

    It's just unimaginable how much they changed between Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 and it isn't a big complexe revolultion, it is a good evolution. The Ecosystem is growing, and the most top apps from iOS and Android are already on the Windows Marketplace. And with the new great Hardware like the 8X or Lumia 920, they finally arrived with a mobile os which really can attack Android and iOS
