Windows Phone 8 training begins, Wallet, Kids Corner, Rooms highlighted

We all know that Windows Phone 8 is right around the corner and before sales reps get their hands on the devices, they must go through a bit of training ahead of time to be well prepared to answer consumer questions. Neowin has been sent a handful of images showing off these slides which we have posted for your viewing pleasure. 

The images show a couple of features we have known about for some time since the SDK leaked including the Wallet app (which pairs with NFC), Kids Corner and Rooms. Kids Corner will be one of the most innovative features as it will allow parents to assign apps that they only want their children to have access too. It's very similar to setting up a profile, or a user account, but to access the specified apps, you will swipe left from the lock screen. The Kids corner feature will obviously work for sharing your phone with anyone and is not only limited to a small subset of applications.

You can also see some of the training documentation on how to use NFC with Windows Phone 8 and the PIN screen for enhanced security; Rooms are also confirmed. Rooms allow you to set up groups of contacts that will share a group chat, group calendar, group notes, lists and documents tied to the room. This feature is in the people hub and rooms can be pinned to start.

With Windows Phone 8 right around the corner, we fully expect more information to surface in the coming days.

Thanks for the tip Anon!
