Windows Phone® Basics

Create great apps.

Windows Phone 8 is the mobile platform from Microsoft that is cross functional with Windows 8. It is built on top of Windows NT kernel and shares the file system, media foundation, device drivers, and parts of the security model with Windows 8. Developers who are working on Windows 8, will be able to easily move their apps to the phone platform. Likewise, those who have already developed apps for Windows Phone 7, will be able to easily move their apps to Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.

The Windows Phone Dev Center has everything you need to get started creating great apps and submit them to the Windows Phone Store.
