    Indeed a great presentation on Windows Phone 8 Networking.

    Just need to ask you that since IPv6 is now supported on Windows Phone, can it be also used at socket level to communicate to remote server over IPv6, as well as creating listening sockets over IPv6?
    Waiting for reply...

    @Uday- you can use IPv6 to create/listen/accept w/ sockets. In my samples I use IPv4 but don't need to.

    Code samples are posted here: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Windows-Phone-8-Networking-835239c1.

  • Soren HansnSoren Hansn

    So what about Bluetooth Low Energy / Smart???
    It's really REALLY needed for a lot of serious accessories. Right now only iOS got support for it, not quite a big enough market. Please add it as soon as possible!
    Android at least HTC are coming soon with API's as well.

    The video talks about socket communication between connected apps on different devices. Can I use sockets for the following scenario:

    1. Use Winsock/Managed/WinRT sockets to communicate between ISV Application and OEM services which runs on the same device?

    2. What is the best way to communicate between Foreground ISV application and service (OEM service) which runs on the same device?

    3. Can I use sockets in the background agents to communicate with foreground application?
