Windows Phone Apollo+ update tipped for Q1 2013 release

Windows Phone Apollo+ update tipped for Q1 2013 release

Windows Phone 8 Apollo is now very much alive, but that being the case, the obvious question is what's coming next from Microsoft? Well, aside from Windows Phone 7.8, that is. Hopefully.

Well, how about Apollo+? The first update to WP8 has been namechecked, and we're told will be hitting Windows Phones around the globe sometime during Q1 2013.

So says Twitter user Football, who previously came to our attention when outing the first image of the HTC Accord (or the HTC 8X as it become known as) in August, followed by some juicy info on the HTC Deluxe DLX at the beginning of last month. So clearly he's worth listening to.

The tweet reads as follows: MS is going to roll out update for WP8 which is called Apollo+ in Q1 2013...

The two obvious questions that immediately come to mind is firstly, when in Q1 are we talking about, and secondly, what will the update contain.

In the first instance, it's fair to assume that Q1 probably means March, as Windows Phone releases and updates have tended to follow a March/September pattern thus far.

As for what Apollo+ will contain, while it's likely WinPho users will get some new features such as the missing Notification Centre, the bulk of the update will more likely be made up of bug fixes to address issues such as the random freezes and restarts that have been widely reported.

So this update could arrive before the Samsung Ative S? Good ;)

Seriously, though - where was I? Yes, DNA and others claim Nokia have 2.5 million pre-orders for the 920, and demand for it rivals the iPhone...and: it's more popular than ANY Nokia device in 10 years! And no Irish carrier currently has plans to adopt it ...

I doubt it's more popular than any nokia device in 10 years as there have been at least 5 Nokia handsets in the past 10 years to push above 100million including the 1100.
