However, that didn’t stop the fine folks over at Windows Phone Central from getting their hands on a copy of Windows Phone 8’s SDK. To get the darn thing to work, the team had to configure their computer running on Windows 8 Pro RTM 64-bit.
Now, the SDK itself has been bouncing around for some time on certain forums. However, the video that WPCentral published is a great walk-through of what you can expect from the tool, and from much of Windows Phone 8 itself. If you have developed for Windows Phone, or have even contemplated it, the clip is worth a spin.
Windows Phone 8 shifts the mobile line to the Windows NT kernel, marking a dramatic shift from its preceding versions. According to an unofficial, but likely correct timeline, Windows Phone 8 will touch down on October 29th.
That’s no more than a touch over a month from now. Get ready.
