Windows Phone Being Modified to Support Tablets?

by Reads (2,134)

An upcoming version of Microsoft‘s Windows Phone is going to allow this operating system to run on tablets, according to an unconfirmed report.

Windows Phone 8.1 (code-named “Blue”) is expected to be out next year, and will supposedly support 7-inch to 10-inch screens.

Windows Phone > Windows Tablet?

Windows RT is an operating system created by Microsoft to run on tablets with ARM processors. Windows Phone also runs on ARM-based devices, but Microsoft’s plan for how these two will co-exist is not yet clear.

That’s especially true when one considers that Microsoft is modifying Windows Phone so that it can run third-party software written for Windows RT.

So far, Windows RT has not found a large market, and it’s possible Microsoft’s plan is to replace it with Windows Phone. Or both could continue to exist, giving tablet makers more options.
