Microsoft has announced details on Windows Phone 8 at the Windows Phone Developer Summit, which arrives this fall with development tools coming over the summer. The new platform is to support more than just dual-core processors, it will support as many as 64 cores if such devices come to exist over the span of the platform's life. The past 800x480 display barrier is broken, now offering 1280 x 720 or 1280 x 768. There are also new abilities such as NFC for tags and payments and the support for SD cards.
