    windows only just launched ( if my windows you mean Microsoft ) their own phones or are soon going to as I understand it, til now they always worked on using other peoples hard ware, I do believe they tried it once and it was a flop, I don't remember it but read it somewhere, they are in talks about taking over nokia which is going down the pan, but, time will reveal all

    ps for me I have no interest in smartphones as I have mobile broadband, the only reason for me to use them is if I want to go totally blind as the screens are so small, my phones make calls, texts, usual tools calendar & alarm etc, and that's it, no internet, I have a cd player if I want to listen to music on the go for longer then 3 hours ( max batt life on laptop), less then that I have mobile broadband and take the laptop with me.

    I have only ever used laptops, but I cant see how it would make any diff, but you should try and download it from google, or use search to find it on the web, works on most op systems including windows 8
