Nokia publishes Windows Phone 8 developer resource

Windows Phone 8 was released last Friday, along with the Windows Phone 8 SDK for developers. We've previously looked at the SDK leak to see what's included in the package, and Nokia has now published an in-depth developer resource for Windows Phone developers to read up on. So what's new in Windows Phone 8?

With the change Microsoft made between Windows Phone 7.x and 8, developers have more scope for app and game development. New APIs are available for developers to take advantage of, enabling new functionality and simplifying already coded features. Nokia's resource walks readers though most of the significant API additions and alterations.

Be sure to head on over to Nokia website to read up on the article.
