Windows Phone 8 Will Stay the Same Core with Windows 8

Stephen Chapman, an analyst from ZDNet, suggested that Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 will use the same OS core based on a research about Microsoft’s┬áposition recruitment and staff resumes.

The former Project Manager’s resume shows that the big change will occur on Apollo other than Tango. It will bring significant differences on Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 in 2012.

Though there are no definite clue prove this result, we can infer that Microsoft is planning to build a Software ecosystem that PC, Tablet and Smartphone can use the same OS core and UI. It’s to say, in the future, Windows 8 App can be transformed to Windows Phone 8 platform. This is a good idea to decrease research cost on the two OS.

On the Build Conference Keynote, Steve Sinofsky showed a possibility to just edit a piece of code of a Silverlight written Windows 8 App and then run it on a Windows Phone platform.

The unified OS core will makes create Windows 8 apps and Windows Phone 8 apps the same work. For that reason, Apps in Windows marketplace should be increased rapidly. This will benefit for Microsoft and Windows 8 users.
