Microsoft Phone won’t turn up on tablets

Written by


No change in attitude
Microsoft is telling the world that it will never use Windows Phone as a tablet operating system. Just looking at the name should have been enough, but punters continued to speculate about possible WP tablets despite Microsoft’s claims to the contrary.

Windows Phone president Andy Lees stressed that Microsoft views tablets as PCs, rather than overgrown phones or PMPs. That would be Apple. Lees argues that using WP Mango on tablets would against this idea, since Microsoft believes tablets should be able to do anything a proper PC can.

This means that we will have to wait for Windows 8 to see Redmond approved tablets, which is probably good news for the likes of AMD and Intel, despite the fact that ARM support will be on board as well.

Why on earth, would anyone remotely come up with the idea that WP OS is for tablets. Guess why the Windows 8 OS has been ported to ARM. Infact there are rumors that it will be the other way round: WP 7 devices running a compile of Windows 8.

Besides, the WP specs are too specific too allow both and im a bit sceptical they will largely open them (specificaly 800x480).

I agree to an extent.
