Does anyone on this site have any news about Windows8 mobile devices (phones or tablets) coming to market anytime soon?

I recently started a software development company, in partnership with my brother and father. We primarily develop Windows Apps. We are currently looking into the possibility of moving towards being able to offer our potential clients mobile apps. As such, we are exploring which mobile platform will be most benefi...

Can't say for sure, but I would assume a Windows App would be easier to program because you can program it either in C++ or MSDOS for a simple program. So common sense does dictate that if you are familiar with Windows that would be the way to go. I don't forsee windows becoming a huge thing since there aren't many windows phones out there and thus not many people using them. Android and IOS are the most popular right now and both programmers give you the tools to create their apps on their websites. Apps seem to be easy enough to create. Android is built on the Linux kernal so programming them manually can prove to be hard if you don't know how to use Linux. As far as IOS I haven't messed with creating a app for IOS.

If I was you I would google Microsoft's E3 presentation. They talk about Windows 8 and a new app called SmartGlass that will be spread across all platforms. Once you have that knowledge, I think you will figure out that your greatest chance of hitting the next wave will be supporting Smartglass as well. Maybe an eye towards getting other apps on windows platform to interact with it or as someone pointed out, learning linux so you can develop for android as I believe android is the real future of mobile computing. Regardless of if on phone or tablets.
