Ice Storm is a 3Dmark benchmark for Windows 8, Windows RT, Android & iOS.. but Windows Phone is not even on the radar. According the Futuremark, creators of the best/most widely used PC benchmark tests, it will only come to Windows Phone if there is enough demand for it.

So it's clear that Windows Phone 8 (sorry wp7 users, but this will never happen for you) users really need to raise awareness that if you're using a wp8 device, you want to be able to compare your phones against iOS & Android devices (heck, even Windows 8 + RT devices!).

This will be the first time a cross-platform benchmark has been made available, and it would be a shame if it never came to what is considered the 3rd big platform (again, sorry Blackberry users).
