Windows 8 to Have Mobile Capabilities

Windows 8Windows 8 is one of the hot button topics in the tech world right now. Windows 7 was an immaculate improvement on the lackluster Windows Vista and people cannot wait to get their hands on Windows 8. Microsoft has been teasing some details here and there about Windows 8 but what is probably one of the coolest new things to come out about the new OS is that fact that Windows 8 is going to attempt to elevate a mobile OS to the desktop.

That's right, the newest buzz around Windows 8, which may or may not be the official title, is that the next-generation OS is expected to be touch-friendly and seamlessly work on tablet devices, desktops and laptops. Microsoft just recently gave an early demonstration of Windows 8's new look as well as the capability of Windows 8 at the D9 conference.

The development platform is based on HTML 5 as well as JavaScript. Any and all applications created for a touch interface will also work with a mouse and keyboard as well which is another nice feature. In addition to that, there is also an option for a split virtual keyboard for typing on a tablet.

The good news about Windows 8 is that the system requirements for running Windows 8 will not be more than what is required to run Windows 7. In addition to that, Windows 8 will also run on Intel, AMD processors and ARM chips. Stay tuned here for all the new information on Windows 8's mobile platform capabilities as they are released.
