Engineering Windows 8 for Mobile Networks

Windows 8 is starting to take its final shape for the upcoming beta this spring and the subsequent gold release later in the year. We have seen brief glimpses of the new operating system and now we have a description of how Windows 8 will negotiate Internet connectivity via Mobile Broadband.
