Question regarding WindOS8 mobility: WP8 == W8 ?

    Question

  • Hello, I have few questions regarding the mobility.

    1. Since its supporting ARM, does that mean we can expect it to work on mobile devices?

    2. Would it be possible for the WP7 users to upgrade it?

    The current developer preview only works on x86 and x64 devices, there's no
    support for ARM yet.


    2. Would it be possible for the WP7 users to upgrade it?

    There will presumably be a WP8 at some point in time, but I doubt strongly
    that they are going to share a common code base any time in the near
    future.
