Windows 8 phones will have support for 22 languages, each with their own input method. Handwriting support is also supposedly included. This is extremely important for Asian users. Keyboard sizes can be adjusted and are easy to use.
Connecting to the internet and through WAN networks with personal settings are set to be easier to arrange and organise. Setting a proxy server is becoming more important as users travel around the globe and still need access to their own country’s services and media content. Personalisation of these settings is rumoured to be much easier.
The lunar calendar is very important to a number of cultures and societies, particularly in Asia. Lunar calendar support will be popular with Asian customers, and it seen as crucial for any device to be considered by the Asian market.
Facebook is becoming increasingly important. Many internet and data connection providers are even offering unlimited free access for Facebook on their connections to get more customers. The new operating system apparently integrates Facebook in a deeper and more intrinsic level on the phone’s operating system. Facebook functions such as chat, like and other common tools will be built into many elements of the operating system.
5: Xbox Live
Microsoft acquired Xbox and developed Live some time ago. This has still been a part of the world of gaming, rather than something that has been regularly used by normal smartphone users. Rumours are circulating that much more of the Xbox services will be available on the smartphone, and other phone features will be available, such as messaging and text messaging, through the Xbox. It makes sense to integrate these services and products, as many younger users, who were at the core of the Xbox consumer base are growing older and using smartphones.
The Windows 8 upgrade for Windows phones promises a lot. Let’s hope we get the operating system as soon as possible and the upgrade and updates are as good, if not better, than the rumours and what we have seen in demonstrations.

Hey, very cool read didnt know that Windows was making a new system for mobile devices and the system seems to be very improved. /Fredrik
I hope they can amazes and delivery something that is really buzz worthy.Something that the other companies are not doing and new .we will see.whats the price of this upgrade , any rumors?
I was not aware about any such operating system being developed by MS. It is good to see facebook functions in the all upcoming operating systems.
I am mostly interested in MS’s Xbox Live integration with Windows 8, because rumors suggest Microsoft will be making Windows 8 Xbox 360 game compatible to try and prolong the sales of games before their next generation gaming console hits the scenes. Anyone agree?
I think the Xbox 360 and connectivity features will bring in more users for the operating system.
It was about time for Microsoft to step up and create something like Windows 8. I will have to try it out before I make up my mind about it, but it all sounds pretty good
I should admit that Windows 8 is really quite promising having in mind that most of the windows lovers will take advantage from the flexibility which is guaranteed by having same operating system on both your devices smart devices. I can’t agree with you that OS of Apple is the same as the operating system itself is not capable to work with any other device while windows is working with everything.
