German Business Week: WP 7.7 Not Apollo for Current HandsetsJune 6, 2012 6 Comments
The German Business Week, is claiming that sources from Nokia and Microsoft, have confirmed that current generation Windows Phones will not be upgraded to Apollo (Windows Phone 8). Instead they will be updated with a future upgrade that may be called Windows Phone 7.7.
They stated that ”An update is not technically possible because Windows Mobile 8 uses different chip sets.” They have also stated that a Microsoft manager was quoted as saying: ”If people have the same functions on their smartphones, they do not care what version number the operating system is.”
Would you care what your current Windows Phone devices OS was numbered if it looks and acts like the latest and greatest Windows Phone OS?
