Microsoft to speed up Windows Phone feature iteration
In an interview with Techradar, Microsoft's director of Mobile Communication Business Aaron Woodman said that Microsoft knew there was a lot of catch-up to be done to compete with the likes of iOS and Android, but that the company thinks that it has achieved that basic parity, and now will begin looking at more "innovative pieces". Much of that base work was put towards hardware optimization, which according to Woodman means that WP single-core devices can have "better performance than a great deal of the dual core devices out there without having to sacrifice or balance things like battery life.” Woodman continues on to point out the flaws with the Android platform, saying that the "first several dual core devices actually didn’t even use the second core" and that even now many developers don't optimize for dual-core even though dual-core marketing is listed "on the back of every box and on the placard".
