Windows Phone 8 to be Codenamed ApolloMay 31, 2011 2 Comments
Everyone is dying to get their hands on Mango, the next update for Windows Phone 7. Already though Microsoft is at work and laying the foundation for out next version of Windows Phone.
Enter Apollo – which will be the codename for Windows Phone 8. which is rumored to have the following:
‘So far we do not know much about the OS, but the main strong rumour is that it will use the same APX app format as Windows 8, and may represent the unification of the platforms, with Windows Phone 8 being ported to the NT kernel.
Presumably by 2012 ARM processors would be routinely powerful enough to support this, and one can imagine scenarios where one could dock oneâ€™s phone and suddenly transition to a full desktop, keyboard and mouse environment, like the Motorola Atrix at present.’ – WMPU
It all sounds amazing and it truly looks like the right path for Windows Phone and Microsoft in general. But right now my mind is still on Mango.Tags: Apollo, Microsoft, Windows Phone, Windows Phone 8, WP7, WP8News
