This week in New York, we’re rolling out the newest member of our Windows Embedded family, and it’s a complete re-imagining of what an enterprise mobile device should be. D’Arcy Salzmann, senior product manager for Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, has details.
At the end of 2011, Kevin Dallas, general manager of Windows Embedded, shared with our customers and partners that the next generation of Windows Embedded Handheld would be based on Windows 8 technology. This past October, we provided more details when we published our updated Windows Embedded road map, noting that the new platform is built on Windows Phone 8 and would be called Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, and we promised that more details would be available in January.
Today at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & EXPO, our team is taking the covers off of Windows Embedded 8 Handheld, introducing our device hardware partners, and showcasing the next generation of mobile line-of-business application experiences with one of our launch customers, showing how Windows Embedded 8 Handheld devices help them deliver on the promise of intelligent systems.
Microsoft and mobile devices for industry have a long and successful history together. Starting with Windows CE, Windows Mobile and Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5, Microsoft mobile platforms today power mobile devices in all industries, helping businesses and governments deliver secure mobile productivity in stores, warehouses, delivery fleets, ports, hospitals, and airplanes. Devices from Microsoft’s hardware partners ensure customers have durable, secure, and reliable connectivity to enterprise systems, allowing them focus on their business, whether inside their showrooms, on the road, at the jobsite or at their customers.

As many of you are probably already aware — and as my colleague Barb Edson explained in a blog post last April — Windows XP reaches End of Support on April 8, 2014, which is just a few weeks away. As a result, there will be no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates. Please click here for more details.
This is a significant event for Windows, and it also has implications for Windows Embedded products that are based on the Windows XP operating system.

I recently discussed the Internet of Your Things, Microsoft’s point of view on the Internet of Things (IoT) — essentially the opportunity for businesses to connect data from devices and sensors with the cloud and business intelligence tools to gain new insights, optimize processes, identify new revenue opportunities and more.

Windows Embedded Standard does not normally require too much troubleshooting, because the boot process is exactly the same as in XP Professional. But, according to Murphy’s Law, something will go wrong, no matter how the small the chance is. This post will try to give an overview of the most common reasons for failure and the ways to resolve them.
