Windows Phone 8 Updates

I love leaks. According to, they have some new information on the new version of Windows Phone, codename Apollo (here’s the real shocker – it’s Windows Phone 8!). Some new features, some that we’ve already heard about (shares code with Windows 8), and others are completely new. Sounds like they are really looking to completely overhaul the whole Windows ecosystem from top to bottom.

Overall, we’re looking at a lot of changes and additions here, all of which seem designed to either bring Windows Phone in line with other platforms, feature-wise, or make it more closely identical to the desktop version of Windows. It’s probably safe to say that the jump from Mango/Tango to Apollo will be nearly as significant as the transition from Windows Mobile to Windows Phone, and this preview certainly gives us a lot to look forward to.
