All Windows Phone 7 handsets to get WP8 Apollo update

All Windows Phone 7 users will be happy to know that their handsets will be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 8 (codenamed Apollo) when it gets released.

Users, even the early adopters, won’t have to worry about which handset will get the update as long as it’s running Windows Phone 7, it will definitely receive Apollo. Android should learn a thing or two from Windows Phone about doing upgrades.

The information came from a Microsoft spokesman, Nuno Silva, during an interview by Zwame.

Q: In terms of devices, who today have one is it expectable that…

Silva: What Microsoft said/stated and what I’m allowed to tell you is that all actual devices will get upgrade to the next major version of Windows Phone (we´re talking about Apollo)

Q: When you say actual devices. Are all that came out to market?

Silva: Are all that came out. Since the first generation that were bought. The LGs and SAMSUNGs.. OMNIA 7 which were the first devices with Windows Phone reaching the market.

This will come as a plus for handset manufacturers opting for the Windows Phone OS as they won’t have to worry about platform fragmentation, a problem that has been bothering Android for quite some time now. Good job Microsoft! Now don’t keep us waiting for Apollo much longer.

Update: This story has been reverted due to new and conflicting information about WP7 handsets actually getting the updates. – Yuga

  3. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on
    the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think
    about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
