Moreover, it will also bring in 3D maps, something that will be on par with the new iOS Maps app and Google Maps. It will also offer hardware acceleration for Windows Phone devices.

The leak also suggests that Skype will be built in for Windows Phone 8 devices, so that the contacts will be automatically connected without any importing. It also offers messaging and VOIP in multi-tasking mode.

And to add the convenience of making payments with the help of your mobile phone, Windows Phone 8 will also bring Windows Phone Wallet which is Microsoft’s mobile payment platform.
