Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 have been long rumored to be closely related, and some more proof that things are indeed so has just emerged online.
In the new Windows 8 Consumer Preview, WPDang reportedly found mentions of Windows Phone 8 that have been missing from the previously released Windows 8 Developer Preview.
The news site claims that the new evidence proves that Windows Phone 8 will have, in fact, an NT kernel.
Codenamed Apollo, Windows Phone 8 has been long rumored to have the same kernel as Windows 8, but no solid proof to sustain thins has been spotted before.
At the moment, Windows Phone 8 is supposedly under heavy development, as Microsoft is gearing up to release it in fall, along with the new Windows client for desktops. The company has yet to confirm any plans on the matter.
