More and more is slowly being revealed from sources peeking behind the red curtain early. The other day we received our first screenshots of what could be Windows Phone 8, and now we just learned a little nugget of info about the future of the syncing relationship between it and Windows 8.
Well we didn't really learn much of anything but according to ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley, the new "update mechanism" that will be used in the upcoming syncing client has a codename: Daphne. In Foley's list of all there is to know about Windows Phone 8 thus far, she adds the following about the sync client:
Replacement of the Zune PC client software with an update mechanism more akin to ActiveSync. (The new update mechanism is codenamed Daphne, according to one of my contacts.)
Like we said, it's not quite the big scoop of news that's going to fire up the headlines. Still, it's very interesting to hear Microsoft may move away from the clunky syncing software we've had to put up with before (aka Zune). Especially if its more like ActiveSync, which let you transfer all kinds of things to and from a mobile device in the past. We're not entirely certain it will be there, but we'd still keep an eye out for this new client to pop up at the Windows Phone Summit next Wednesday.
