Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" reference ironically appears in the I'm WP7 app

Windows Phone 8
We told you the other day about Windows Phone 8 browser stats appearing on Hitlinks, not to mention the Nokia poster template we were sent which had the thing written front and center.

Now a reference to Windows Phone 8 has appeared in the "I'm a WP7!" app, for the sake of irony. The app statistics show that a Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" build 8.0.9662.0 is running somewhere in the Wild West of Redmond, so all points hint at advanced stages of internal testing for the newest Microsoft mobile OS version.

The developer Scott Peterson says that his app has been ran on a Windows Phone 8 emulator: "It’s running from an Emulator, doesn’t appear to be spoofed, is using the default Emulator location, and the Time Zone Offset lines up with Pacific Coast…", hinting that Microsoft is already running app compatibility tests with titles from the Marketplace.

Amen... I had always preferred PS to Xbox, but my roommate uses Xbox and it is AMAZING. I will always have a soft spot for PS (especially with titles like Gran Turismo, and Blue Ray capability), but I see myself getting an Xbox soon (better FIFA gameplay, Halo)!

Paired up with WP, it is an awesome ecosystem!
