Microsoft to unveil new Windows Phone 8 features at Nokia World?

Ahead of this September's Nokia World gathering, new reports have suggested Microsoft will take the opportunity to unveil new WP8 features

 

Ahead of this autumn's Windows Phone 8 release date, new reports have suggested Microsoft will take to the stage during September's Nokia World meeting to outline a flurry of new consumer features heading to the mobile OS.

Whilst Microsoft has already revealed a raft of Windows Phone 8 features, last month's Windows Phone summit was geared more towards developers than consumers with confirmation of the upcoming system's ability to support multi-core processors, enhanced multitasking and NFC technologies.

Although it is expected an official Microsoft presence at the Finnish based Nokia convention will mark the first details of new, consumer friendly, Windows Phone 8 features ahead of the platform's release later this year, little is currently known what form these will take beyond the refreshed tile based homescreen Microsoft hopes will help its Windows system rival the dominant forces of iOS and Android.

Earlier this month Nokia CEO Stephen Elop hinted Nokia could exclusively launch the first Windows Phone 8 handsets, further building on its strong partnership with the software giant. Speaking during a recent analysts meeting, Elop suggested Nokia could benefit from a “close relationship” it has with Microsoft that is “unlike what anyone else has.”
