Microsoft defends Windows 8 technology
The chief envisioning officer for Microsoft has praised the mobile phone and said that the devices will have a "pivotal" place in electronic devices for years to come.
Dave Coplin spoke at the Internet World conference in London and stood by the firm's Windows 8 technology, saying it would play an important part in people becoming more creative, according to Techradar.
He continued to say that smartphones will give users access to more and more information that will challenge people. The official added: "They will not be phones anymore; they will be our windows to the digital world."
Mr Coplin said the company wanted to disrupt the way people work to encourage them to do more on "touch-enabled devices" but admitted it was in a "period of pain" at the moment.
He said Windows 8 would be part of a change that will make people change the way they think about technology over the next few years.
