Windows Phone Tango and Apollo dated

Windows Phone Tango and Apollo datedIn terms of Windows Phone versions, to date we’ve had NoDo (rumoured to be a NoDonut dig at Android) and more recently Mango – Windows Phone 7.5, with its multitasking and 500+ other features I can’t quite remember. Ahem.

Now we’re hearing by way of the DGui blog that the next two versions, namely Tango and Apollo (you might have noticed that they all end with an ‘o’), have been dated.

Windows Phone Tango, first of all, will reportedly be announced and released at CES 2012 on January 13. It’ll introduce support for smaller Windows Phone devices, and two phones – the Nokia Lumia 719 and Nokia Lumia 900 – will be shown off.

Windows Phone Apollo, or Windows Phone 8, will be launched around the middle of June. It’ll bring support for NFC, dual-core processors, and even larger displays.

Nokia’s first wave of Windows Phone 8 devices will be revealed at Nokia Connection 2012, and will include a “new camera flagship”. The Finns will supposedly announce a Windows 8 tablet at NokCon too.

To be fair, DGui notes that the information should be taken with a pinch of salt, though the source claims to work for Nokia in Finland. Interesting.

Saying Mango added 500 features is a tad o.t.t. ;) It added 500 api changes and other things that no user will ever actually notice.
Not saying, Mango didn't hugely improve the platform, but fair is fair.
