Windows Phone (abbreviated as WP) is a series of proprietary smartphone operating systems developed by Microsoft. It is the successor to Windows Mobile, although it is incompatible with the earlier platform.Unlike its predecessor, it is primarily aimed at the consumer market rather than the enterprise market. It was first launched in October 2010, with a release in Asia following in early 2011.

The latest release is Windows Phone 8, which was launched on October 29, 2012. With Windows Phone, Microsoft created a new user interface, featuring a design language named “Modern” (which was formerly known as “Metro”). Additionally, the software is integrated with third-party and Microsoft services, and sets minimum requirements for the hardware on which it runs.

Microsoft is currently developing an updated version of Windows Phone, code named “Windows Phone Blue” (previously “Windows Phone Apollo Plus”) which will be named either Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows Phone 8.5.
