Windows 8. Now with SMS and app store

A leak clearer than a crystal ball shows the future of Windows could be mobile

Windows 8’s dev team has been staring out of all those windows while videos of their latest work leaks out online. The video and image below have revealed that Windows 8 devices may feature SMS just like on mobiles, while a similar keyboard appears to have been adopted from the phone’s metro style UI. There’s also rumour of a Windows App Store that lets users switch on and off certain OS features. We were impressed with Windows Phone 7 even with its meagre app offering – building its own store could be just the push needed to make Microsoft innovative on computers once more.
