Windows Phone 8 SDK leaked, Pics of New Features revealed

The WP8 SDK wasn't intended to be released until August but it's already been leaked. How? That's not my concern at this point, what's interesting is the features that have been revealed from the leaked SDK.

Here's a quick look at the features:

There is the new start screen with the 3 different sized tiles, I'm sure everyone is familiar with this by now, the SDK also confirms you can swipe to the left to reveal the "all Apps" menu.

Also, the Data Sense (aka Data Smart), which is an app integrated into the WP8 that allows you to monitor your data usage, No more getting charged for excessive data usage huh!?

The camera UI has been greatly improved on, no more mediorce stuff, this improvement makes you wonder about how pureview will be integrated in Nokia Lumia WP8 phones. This new camera brings additional effects and filters too.

The Music+Video App is no longer boring looking, it now has more like an xbox 360 feel to it, this brings to mind what Microsoft said about PC, Console, Tablet and Phone having the same UI and being uniform with one another. This makes me want to sell my PS3 and get an Xbox 360!

Then there is the Wallet app, here you can store all your credit card info and use the built in nfc to pay for stuff by just tapping your phone on an NFC terminal (if available).

Since the SDK leaked, I bet you more and more features will be revealed so keep your eyes open.

Other Features include:

  • 3D mode for Nokia Maps, 3D mode is already available on Nokia Maps on Symbian, glad to see it introduced on WP8.
  • P2P file sharing via Bluetooth, yes! finally a much needed features, something as simple as bluetooth transfer!
  • IE10, you can demo this on the Windows 8 now!
  • Lockscreen notifications for 3rd party apps, more functionality/customization is being introduced on WP8 lockscreen
  • Developer access to voice command features
