We have been witnessing a gradual changes in the world of computing devices for last five years. Computing world is evolving in many aspects, but one eye soaring fact is it has got tremendous mobility despite some regressions in size, processing speed, connectivity and power. However, as happened in the past these loses are gradually getting recovered with technological advancements. With 4G, connectivity is beating the cable cords, with A6 like chips processing is getting up.
The most significant development is integrations with computing devices as it is now nearly natural with hand gestures and will be more alluring and meaningful with body gestures in multi-screen Windows 8. Now we are mentioning Windows 8 as some more advance thing because it has something different than others for windows mobile application development. Apple had started buzzword smartphone and tablet in electronic gadget markets with its superb products iPhone and iPad and still ruling over the market due to its strategies to give only quality products with the best user experiences whether it be hardware or software. Therefore, it has captured market earlier.
Google simply followed it with Android. It has propelled new strategies including opensource and open marketplaces and try to replicate the opensource mania occurring on the web development for big devices. This open polices have rewarded Android with the largest user base in sense of Android OS users, but not turning them in to dollar. May be Google is earning enough from search engine so it might not have any intentions to extract more.
Now turn is of Microsoft, because Microsoft was only beating on its Windows OS and related products and despite lots of efforts it got failures and still struggling to get its place in the handheld devices. Until Windows Phone 7 it was a hopeless platform for Windows mobile development. The reasons were obvious like it is close platform like Apple but not have any concrete strategies like Apple has. Therefore, it has recently taken different dimensions and come up with altogether innovative idea/concept and it is multi-screen ecosystem for Windows mobile app developers as well as Windows desktop developers.
It has first implemented this new concept on desktop and tablet and will cover mobile later on. Its modern UI style is attracting many developers, but not much customers of the devices. Reasons are obvious, in Windows Phone 7 marketplace you will find nearly all mediocre apps which are already available on the Android and iOS marketplaces. Thus, Microsoft has to learn some lessons for new Windows 8 marketplace as it is again getting filled up with nonsense mediocre apps developed by mediocre Windows mobile app developers and intimidating the users.
Microsoft is crave for Windows mobile apps developers, developers and developers. But not thinking that it really don't need low quality developers to create useless apps. There should be some system like Apple has to monitor strictly only quality apps, not garbage. If Microsoft is doing this simple thing cleverly it definitely has success in its new product and new dimensions of Windows 8. Best of luck Microsoft!
