I think this is a great opportunity for app developers who concentrate on Windows Phone to integrate some of the eye-popping graphics the new iPad display boasts. The Retina display is really something. It makes me wonder what could possibly be next in mobile app development--guess there's nowhere to go but up!

They should have a better display than retina. They are only 10 years behind everyone else. LOL how much is MS paying you guys to write these articles?

Although Win 8 will install on a Netbook, the Metro UI will not function correctly. This was noted in the 'Developers' version released last year and not corrected in the 'Consumer' version. Win 7 has no issues with 1028x600 resolution, why should Win 8? Come on, Microsoft, get with it.

This really looks like a great new option for consumers, once itGs ready to roll out. ItGll be interesting to see how people react, when itGs available.

On an enterprise level, however, itGs important to have the right tools in place, to ensure that no matter how employees react, the company will be kept safe. This is especially true as the growth of BYOD continues. But with the right tools, an IT administrator can check that all the devices, from iPads to Android tablets and even Windows 7 phones, that access company data have the proper security measures in place. This allows the company to remain safe, while employees are happier using the device they prefer.
