Some unrevealed Windows 8 features

Long Zheng from istartedsomething.com have deciphered some of the “Few things we did’nt get to show” Sinofsky flashing at the BUILD keynote yesterday.

They include:

  • Integrated load balancing – if you have multiple active network connections, Windows 8 will intelligently balance the network traffic between them for performance
  • Stereo 3D video and gaming – would suggest native support for stereoscopic display output too
  • Easy discover apps that support a language – would suggest Windows Store will allow browsing by language
  • Filter apps that are accessible – similar to above, for applications that are accessible
  • Start background – there will be the ability to change the Start background (not possible in developer preview)
  • Create Live ID in Windows OOBE – users without Live IDs will be able to create one at the Windows setup
  • Phone as Smartcard – the ability to use Windows Phone as an authenticator for login?
  • Communication over SMS on my PC – the ability to send and receive SMSes?
  • Native support for WIMAX and LTE
Clearly there is still a lot more to uncover on that slide, which we are looking forward to over the next few weeks.
