windows The Eighth wave

20 MYMOBILE nov 15 to dec 14 2012

It is a whole new Windows. And promises to change the way we use just about every computing device, from smartphones to tablets to computers. We take a closer look at Windows 8 and its mobile avatar, Windows Phone 8. Team My Mobile

T

he operating system that for many of us is synonymous with computers is now not just looking to strengthen its hold on desktops and notebooks, but is also on course to grab a massive chunk of the smartphone and tablet market. While a mobile version of Windows has been around for a while (remember Windows Mobile?), its similarity with its desktop counterpart was rather limited. Well, that is all set to change with the arrival of the eighth wave of Windows. With the launch, Microsoft has managed to achieve what many players in the tech market dream of - a synergy across desktops, phones and tablets. The tiled interface that had become iconic with Windows Phone 7 will not be seen not only on phones, but also on computers and tablets, albeit with a few tweaks to suit the hardware it is running on. And the Xbox, which incidentally can now be connected even more seamlessly to Windows and Windows Phone users, could be the next in line to get a similar makeoever. And if we go by rumours, Microsoft’s Kinect technology, which allows people to control actions on a screen by their gestures, will soon be seen not just on mainstream computers but also on mobile phones and in cars. With Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, Microsoft has embarked on a very ambitious effort to integrate phones, computers, tablets and to an extent consoles. It is still too early to say how successful the Redmond company will be, but if it is, consumers will not be complaining. One could start a presentation on a PC, edit it on a phone, and maybe check out how it looks on a really big screen using your Xbox console, and maybe add gesture controls to it (wave your hands to change a slide) using Kinect. Now how cool would THAT be? It might just happen. But that’s in the future. Let’s first check out what the new Windows has in store for us.
