Microsoft releases 1080p Emulators for Windows Phone developers.


Microsoft has just informed on its developer blog that new emulator images for Windows Phone 8.0 Updates 2 and 3 are available now to download from the Microsoft Download Center. Noteworthy is availability of 1080p Emulator image in particular for Update 3 (GDR3).

Update 3 Emulators: This is a new set of emulator images that correspond to Windows Phone 8 Update 3. In addition to updating the current emulator resolutions (WVGA, WXGA, and 720p) to 8.0.10512, Update 3 also includes a ‘1080p’ emulator that you can use to test how your app renders on a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen, whether to deliver HD media (video or images) or to provide an app layout tailored to the larger screen.

So, if you are a windows phone developer, then time to plan your apps for 1080p displays!
