Windows Phone 8 SDK Now Available

Windows 8 has been a major initiative from Microsoft and Windows Phone 8 is undoubtedly an integral part of their plans going forward. The tech giant has just revealed that the Windows Phone 8 SDK, which had been available in preview version only up till now, will be released tomorrow. 

The SDK will offer developers access to all the new Windows Phone 8 APIs, such as Direct3D, Win32 and WinRT APIs. It will also include a full Windows Phone emulator which should undoubtedly help in testing apps for different screen sizes.

Being the new kid on the block, Windows Phone 8 has a lot of catching up to do in terms of applications available to users when compared with iOS and Android. Microsoft had previously stated that the SDK would be available at the end of summer. Obviously the release has been delayed, but now at least developers can start work.
