Well some interesting news coming from Engadget today. Â A Nokia executive, Michael Halbherr, Executive VP for Location and Commerce,Â told engadget that Apollo, or Windows Phone 8, will be arriving in mid 2012. Â What is more they are pushing Microsoft to include NFC and “positioning framework” for the new release. Â This seems like a very quick turnaround and points again to the fact that Nokia had very little input into Mango and instead has played a large role in the development of Apollo.
This does make one ask the question of timing. Â How will Microsoft release two Tango updates and then Apollo before the second half of the year? Â Seems a bit unlikely but we will be following this developing story.
