Not all news today is Apple related. The Windows Phone 8 team announced some things today too. Sort of.
At a waterfront convention centre in Seattle today, the Microsoft developer group made a big splash officially launching the Visual Studio 2012 suite of tools and services to help developers build the next generation range of apps for new connected devices. The Windows Phone 8 team also made some announcements today, but not from this event. Of course not. That would make too much sense. The announcements strategy surrounding Windows Phone 8 to date has been bizarre to say the least. For consumers, it’s been making big splashes whilst leaving big question marks. No release dates, no pricing information, and no preorders.
Pretty sure that Paul Thurrott will have a great deal to say about this on Windows Weekly on Friday.
