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.

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.
On the heels of our recent release of the Windows Embedded 8 platform, we’re making another member of the Windows Embedded family available today — Windows Embedded 8 Industry. David Wurster, Microsoft Windows Embedded’s senior product manager, has details on how Windows Embedded has evolved beyond point-of-service (POS) systems in retail to do much more in the Windows 8 era.
A couple of weeks ago, we announced the availability of Windows Embedded 8 Pro and Windows Embedded 8 Standard, bringing a modern OS with tons of capabilities to edge devices within intelligent systems.
Building on that announcement, today we’re making available Windows Embedded 8 Industry. The name reflects a broad scope of possibilities to further expand the Windows Embedded 8 family across a range of industries and targeted intelligent system scenarios.
Comments Windows Embedded Standard
It’s an exciting week in New York for our Windows Embedded team, who are on hand at the National Retail Federation Convention & EXPO to announce a brand-new product release preview. Windows Embedded senior product manager David Wurster has details.
In October 2012, we announced our road map for the Windows Embedded 8 family of products by sharing availability dates for Windows Embedded 8 Standard and Windows Embedded 8 Pro, and introducing you to Windows Embedded 8 Industry.
All Windows Embedded 8 products will be available in the first half of 2013 and will enable our OEM partners to create differentiated devises that will utilize the rich, immersive and multi-touch customer experience to delight users and help them extend the intelligence of their information technology systems.
