07-Nov-12 Apple about to be eaten…

As Windows mobile version 8 is now officially available in the UK, the big question now is whether this new range of devices can actually make any inroads in to the market space already proliferated with Android and Apple devices.

Microsoft have certainly got a chance to close the gap with Apple, as they will deliver their mobile platform on a number of Nokia and HTC hardware platforms, whilst Apple will be limited to their own designed shell.

The real game changer is going to be the variety of applications of course, but the good news already is that 46 of the top 50 downloaded applications are already available, which include the key social tools (Twitter and Facebook), as well as Angry Birds!

All this is great news. My only disappointment is that my current Windows Nokia Lumia will only get the stop gap upgrade to Windows 7.8 (I wonder if that will support Angry Birds), as apparently the hardware does not support the full version!

I’m wondering which of my blog readers will be the first to purchase a full mobile 8 device? Let me know.
