At BUILD developers conference earlier this week, Microsoft announced Sharks Cove development board support for Windows. Today, Sharks Cove Development Board is now available for pre-order. Microsoft collaborated with Intel and the product manufacturer, CircuitCo to develop this “Windows compatible hardware development board” that will enable development of software and drivers for mobile devices that run Windows, such as phones, tablets and similar System on a Chip (SoC) platforms.
This will cost $299, along with the hardware, it also includes a Windows 8.1 image and the utilities necessary to apply it to the Sharks Cove. SharksCove.org is the site dedicated to the Sharks Cove board, where you’ll find specs and links to other content and MSDN forums.
