All Windows Phones to get Apollo?


A reliable source on Windows Phone matters MSNerd,  claims that ALL Windows Phones will be getting some form of the the Apollo update if your carrier doesn’t block it.

On Reddit MSNerd had this to say:

Windows Phones 1st, 2nd gen and Windows Phone 8. Any hope for upgrades?

Yes, all current Windows Phones will receive a subset of Apollo. The carriers are the primary obstacle in the US. I hear Microsoft is pushing hard for a Mango-like delivery schedule, as are Nokia & HTC.

Some Apollo features will be exclusive to the 3rd-gen devices expected to be released this fall on the MSM8960 platform.

So this is where buying an unlocked phone pays off. Does anyone remember the whole Nokia Astound (C7) not getting the Belle update because T-Mobile wouldn’t let it happen? Let’s hope history will not repeat  itself with the Lumia 710 and Apollo.
