Windows 8 “Consumer Preview”: What’s There Inside The Box !

Must Read

Microsoft is striving hard to deliver best Windows 8 experience to their consumers as their latest feature packed Windows 8 is one of the most awaited OS of the year. Microsoft is developing Windows 8 to support the Tablets and Smartphone’s too, though they had already released the hardware specification required to run the OS. In a latest move, Microsoft has announced the release date of Windows 8 “Consumer Preview” as February 29 at MWC, Barcelona. The company will hold an event on February 29th to launch the Windows 8 Consumer Preview between 3PM and 5PM.

Microsoft had recently announced that it will release the “Beta” version of Windows 8 by this February. Though the event is serving almost the same purpose as it is named as the Windows 8 “Consumer Preview”. The difference between the two is that a “beta” version is an unfinished product but the “Consumer preview” version would be a complete product and will be open for feedback.

The choice of venue would suggest us about the company’s plans for the Windows Phone 8 codenamed Apollo which was leaked recently. Windows Phone 8 have the same Metro style user interface as Windows 8 for Tablets and PC’s, though no beans have been spilled about the exact release date of the product but the Consumer Preview at MWC will give us some hint about the same. The much anticipated Skype is also expected to be integrated in the Windows Phone 8.

Windows 8 will host a lot of new features with a new “Start Screen”, new user interface, titled Metro and the much talked about advanced “Sensor Fusion” which will surely remit silky operating experience to the users.  Releasing the Consumer Preview of a desktop operating system at a conference for cellular communications would seem to be strange but with Windows 8’s tablet ambitions and the leaked information that Windows Phone 8 will probably use the Windows 8 kernel, this seems to be a desktop operating system that won’t be confined to the desktop. Microsoft is trying hard to enter the Tablet and the Smartphone market with its range of Windows Phone’s on varied manufacturer platforms like Samsung, Nokia and now with the latest LG miracle and even might be able to win over the Smartphone market against the current industry giants, iOS and Android.
