Windows My new phone arrived today: a blue HTC 8X, running Windows Phone 8. As a huge Windows Phone fan put off by several persistent issues in Windows Phone 7.x, I'm basically giving this platform another shot, and in this day and age such a second chance doesn't come cheap: the 8X is 539 EUR, after all. Here's a few quick first impressions after less than a day of use.

Almost. There is some on-device compilation (Converting MDIL to native machine code, but its much faster than JITing MSIL using ngen or something)


MDIL is native code except for the memory references that are kept symbolic.

On the device you only have a linker, no compilation takes place.

At least this is the information available in Channel 9 and BUILD 2012.
