Leaked Videos Reveals Details About Windows Phone 8

If rumors based on a leaked Microsoft video are true, developers could soon find it easier to write applications that work on both Windows Phone and Windows. In a video prepared for staff at Nokia, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore reveals that Windows Phone 8, codenamed Apollo, will reuse much of the code for the kernel, networking stacks, security, and multimedia support from Windows 8, allowing developers to “reuse — by far — most of their code” when porting apps from one platform to the other.

The video also explains that Windows Phone 8 will support NFC, multiple screen sizes and removable microSD card storage, as well as offering better data sync capabilities, a DataSmart data usage tracking feature and native BitLocker encryption.
