Nokia Prodigy with Windows Phone 8 Apollo supposed to be "unbelievable"
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 26, 2012, 3:42 AM
In a classic unconfirmed rumor, someone allegedly met with a Nokia engineering guy, and now says that the Apollo devices, one of which is with the rumored codename Nokia Prodigy, are going to be "incredible" and much better than the current Lumia range. Something along those lines we've already heard from Nokia's Niklas Savander, as well as the CEO Stephen Elop himself.
Most of the talk on the guy's Twitter account is back and forth with N9 aficionados, and the obvious reason for meeting with the Nokia employee is more Meego Harmattan's future and the upcoming default apps updates there, rather than Windows Phone.
The upcoming Nokia Windows Phone 8 devices were apparently super enough to deserve a good word from an engineer that owns a Nokia N9, though. Recently we learned from MSNerd that Nokia has been given carte blanche by Microsoft to create proprietary camera module interfaces for its own Windows Phone handsets, as well as put in charge of the battery and antenna designs, so we are waiting with baited breath for the Apollo crop of Nokia's WP handsets.

Ugh, this doesn't sound promising. They also said that lumia 800 "WILL BLOW OUR MINDS". If they don't release something with hd, screen, decent multi core processor, and pure view camera, they should better keep quiet.

that was just marketing hype. Though, if MS is actually giving Nokia the go ahead to do whatever it wants with WP8 for the handset, then we might really see some stellar sets. WP8 + nokia's best camera, battery, and other tech? Might be pretty cool.

one of my dreams in the smartphone world: iOS's Champion vs Android's Champion vs Windows Phone's Champion but obviously, one needs to be worthy. I hope windows phone shows us a competitor to the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S III - like ARM 15 Dual Cores and HD. i hope this nokia prodigy doesn't disappoint. phonearena, if a case happens that windows phone releases a champion, please do a 3 way smackdown. please. :>

it is sad that Microsoft finally comes to the market place with Windows 8 smart phones that now has all the high tech stuff like Dual core CPU's, High def screens, NFC and ect.the Award winning metro smart updating tile interface may not look pretty but it is for sure better than dead icons that are on Iphones and Android smart phone.screens. I hope that Microsoft hangs in there because we need a third and forth and even fifth different smart phone OS so that people are not locked into buying just Android or Iphone. People are different and need smart Phones that suit their tastes not the general publics. for now the the Iphone and the Android smart phones are more popular to the general American Public but People like Myself who dare to be different are Glad Windows smart phones are around it's not Crazy to be different. It's only a human thing

Windows Phone may be young. But it has captured a great amount of people in its simplicity and beauty. The OS is smooth no matter what phone ive tried it on. Everything is fluid. Alot of people give it schtick because of that "Windows" Logo. Honestly take it away and people would look at it as an amazing simple to use OS. some great Os'es have come and go. (WebOS) But i think Windows Phone has what it takes to be big.
