Watch Joe Belfiore’s Mobile World Congress 2014 announcement (video)


Microsoft has posted a somewhat shortened version of Joe Belfiore and Nick Parker’s Mobile World Congress 2014 Windows Phone announcement, during which he spoke of the next version of Windows Phone, which will feature adaptations to make the OS more suitable for low-end handsets, including support for lower-end chipsets, the ability to install apps on memory cards, and reduced hardware specifications such as camera buttons.

The 13 minute video is well worth watching for the smaller statements too, such as around 2:38 when Joe Belfiore says:

“These enterprise features will be part of the next Windows Phone update and that Windows Phone update will be coming later this Spring.  It will be on brand new devices that you will hear more about when we get closer to its availability, and it will be part of an update, that all the Windows Phones, the current Windows Phone 8 devices will be technically available to get.”

Interesting language that, isn’t it? See the video after the break.
