But basically a phone is just a tool to communicate, and I have never been that interested in phones as long as I can call and have descent Exchange functionality. But, as things comes together it looks like the new Windows Phone 8 will run Windows 8 core and have cool features like Bitlocker.
It will have System Center integration, do we smell a Endpoint Protection Client?, Direct Access?For deployment people we actually need to start considering phone with its OS and applications as a part of our domain, like it or not. I think it could be cool, it will raise a lot of new responsibilities and challenges, but that’s what we are here for isn’t it. By the way, I might consider replacing my Samsung with a Nokia Lumia 800 J
