SOFTWARE HOUSE Microsoft has released a Windows Phone 8 syncing app for Windows 8 and Windows RT ahead of the launch of its mobile operating system later on today.

The app, which is available to download for free from the Windows Store, allows easy syncing between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 devices, according to Microsoft.

"Your computer and your Windows Phone 8 work together seamlessly with the Windows Phone app so you always have your photos, videos, and music, and more where you want them," Microsoft said.

However, the app is pretty useless right now, as the firm has yet to launch its Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system. There's not long to wait though, as Microsoft is holding an event later on today to launch its new mobile operating system, where it'll also be sure to showcase its flagship Windows Phone 8 device, the HTC Windows Phone 8X.

It will also be showcasing its favourite Windows Phone 8 features, which include support for multi-core processors and high-res screens, baked-in NFC support and a new customisable interface.

The INQUIRER will be at Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 launch event in London tonight, so we'll be bringing you all the latest then. µ
