TechTree interviewed Vineet Durani, Director from Microsoft’s Windows Phone Business Group.
When asked about the possibility of sending over bluetooth without file type restriction, Vineet said:
Windows Phone 8 has Bluetooth to transfer all kinds of files and contacts from any phone to another Bluetooth-enabled phone without any restrictions.
I hope Vineet is clued up and can be certain about this as BT file sending is highly important to some consumers, as we have heard many times from our readers in India. Hopefully “all kinds of files” literally means that and not simply a phrase for “lots of types”. He confirms anyway by saying “without any restrictions”. This, along with MicroSD support (when hardware enabled) and USB mass storage mode are all welcome small additions.
- WP7.5 phones will continue to be sold along side WP8
- Skype coming soon
Cheers Manu for the tip!
