Apollo Info Revealed Through Future Windows Phone Developer ConferenceMay 8, 2012 1 Comment
We know its coming but we do not however know much about Microsoft’s future version of Windows Phone codenamed Apollo. A recent description of a future developer conference session however shed a little light on Windows Phone 8. The DevCon conference which will be held on October 22nd through the 24th.The session in question is being led by Paras Wadehra, Principal Software Engineer at Good Technology and ex-Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft.
The description states:
“This session will guide you on how to develop for Windows Phone Apollo, the new version of Windows Phone due out by the end of this year. You will learn the new resolutions needed to support and target Windows Phone Apollo, the new hardware you will program against, the changes coming to the Windows Phone Marketplace, and much more. There will be some code shown, which will help you migrate your Windows Phone Mango apps to target Windows Phone Apollo. The session will also help you understand the marketing aspects of apps targeting Windows Phone Apollo in order to help you get your apps approved the first time. You will also learn about the new emulator as well as new reporting features available in the Windows Phone Marketplace.
At the end of the session, you will be ready to write and upload apps to the new Windows Phone Marketplace. Please note: Knowledge of the Windows Phone Developer ecosystem is required. In order to appreciate the difference between Mango and Apollo, it is also preferable that you have developed at least one app currently in the Marketplace.”
This reveals that not only will the new Windows Phone 8 Platform have new resolutions but with this event being held in October leads us to believe that Apollo wont be here this summer. If this description hold true, Windows Phone 8 will launch November at the earliest.
Very interested to see if the leaked Windows Phone 8 info we posted about earlier this year holds true.
