+ - WP8 SDK Leak Confirms WP7 Dead->

Submitted by mikejuk
mikejuk (1801200) writes "Despite trying to convince everyone that WP7 phones are still a good thing to have a leak of the WP8 SDK reveals that WP7 apps are more or less dead. After spending so much time getting developers to commit to creating over 100,000 they some how have to break that news that its time to start over with an app count of 0.
The new SDK doesn't allow WP7 Silverlight or XNA projects to be created for WP8. There is a conversion utility that will attempt to turn a WP7 Silverlight app into a WP8 app but essentially it is time to start over with the new WinPRT API. There is no automatic conversion for XNA apps.
From the developers point of view Microsoft might as well have thrown away WP7 and started something completely new ... oh wait, that's what they have done."
