You may well be aware that mainstream support for Windows 8 is set to end on January 9, 2018. And even though Microsoft is yet to reveal the date when it plans on ending support for Windows RT, the support for Surface RT is listed as ending on April 11, 2017. With those two dates out of the way, the big...

When it comes to mobile platforms, nothing shows signs of growth more than penetration of the latest version of the operating systems.

More than once I’ve talked about the huge amount of potential for Windows Phone 8 in the enterprise world. With its ability to play nicely and integrate with Office, Windows and much more– there is a lot to love about Windows Phone 8.
