When I say Windows 8 Demo, it's a standard OS for all upcoming Windows Devices (PCs and Laptops including the upcoming Windows Phone 8). So, the following demo shows you a sneak peek into what experience users will get on a Windows Mobile Phone 8 (will most probably be a tweaked light version of the same Windows 8 OS).
Key things to notice as you watch:
- Apps form a tile-based Start screen fully customizable and scalable with full-screen views
- Each app shows LIVE updates (new message, fb notifications, counters, timers...)
- Fast switch between screens and apps
- Move, replace, resize icons with just finger taps
- Multi-touch flow, mutli-apps running on the background
- Most apps rely web connections, updates on the background utilizing HTML 5 and JS
- Latest IE Explorer, fast optimized browsing and smooth touch flow
Looking at the demo, i already feel Windows 8 will definitely be a huge success. My only concern with this design is Performance. I cannot estimate the minimum Memory requirement to run a Windows 8 OS ? Tablet PCs aren't yet as powerful as desktops or high end laptops. Same holds true for Mobile Phones.
Feel free to drop in your thoughts below.
- Which feature did you like the MOST ?
- Any feature that could be improved ?
- Any critics so far ?
