Many people are eagerly awaiting the release of Windows Phone 8, but one renowned blogger has posted that Windows Phone 8 is actually codenamed Windows Phone Apollo. Since the post, many people are wondering if he means that a we won’t actually see a separate OS named Windows Phone 8, but rather we will simply see an updated Windows Phone 7?
As Eldar put it, “Do u know that windows phone 8 os is special? May be we even dont see word phone here 🙂 but that’s apollo and oct2012.” He also discussed the topic of whether or not Windows Phone 7 apps will be compatible with Windows 8, stating that “WP8 os isn’t compatible with wp7 on app level (u need to rewrite all apps). Thats another os core with metro ui.“
