Phone calls possible with Windows 8?

Long Zheng, over at, has assembled a decent case to show that Windows 8 record gadgets will be able to make calls. The principal bit of proof is up front in the image above, which originates from a slide show on Windows 8 live tiles at the most recent day of BUILD 2011 in Anaheim. One of the example tiles is unmistakably named “Missed Calls,” total with a telephone symbol and time-stepped Contact names.

On the off chance that that weren’t sufficient, a freeze edge of a Contact in the People Hub of a Windows 8 demo video (beneath) shows the alternative to call the individual’s cell phone. This indicates any calling usefulness is something other than VOIP-based.

Last, however absolutely not least, we have some equipment proof. Those blessed enough to go to BUILD got a record stacked with Windows 8, alongside some different treats.’s Rafael Rivera broke down the specs of the gadget and thought that it was contained an Option remote chip, which controls the WiFi, GPS and 3G, yet alos bolsters cell communication utilizing quad-band 2G and peta-band 3G.

We realize that Skype will be a major piece of Microsoft’s working frameworks going ahead, yet the capacity to make cell phone calls also is an entirely helpful element.

All the more strikingly, Zheng calls attention to that this usefulness could flag that the Windows 8 kernal may in reality be utilized as the establishment for future Windows Phone renditions.
