Rating: Any processor you like as long as its, um, black?
Following Microsoft’s announcement of the latest version of its mobile OS, Windows Phone 8, Qualcomm has confirmed that its Snapdragon processor will power 100 per cent of Windows Phone devices as part of the company’s long standing collaboration with Microsoft. Announced at Microsoft’s Windows Phone Developer Summit, Windows Phone 8 will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Plus mobile processor.The Windows Phone platform has gained popularity with mobile developers, who over the last two years have created more than 100,000 apps for the devices running on the Windows Phone OS.
GoMobile News would guess that it is still trailling the BlackBerry OS, though.
Anyway, at the forthcoming Uplinq 2012 event, which is Qualcomm’s annual wireless ecosystem conference, developers will have the opportunity to participate in three separate breakouts sessions dedicated to developing mobile apps targeted for the Windows Phone and Windows RT platforms.
Could prove very interesting. Especially since it will focus on Android, HTML5 and Brew platforms, as well as Windows Phone.
