Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" shown tested on a Nokia Lumia 900
We received a rather murky shot of what is claimed to be a Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" developer build being tested on a cyan Nokia Lumia 900. Microsoft's upcoming version of the Windows Phone mobile OS is supposed to be the one to usher the platform in the era of multicore chipsets and HD screens, among many other improvements.

Thus a lot of hopes are pinned on Apollo to really leverage the Windows Phone platform and cement its position as the third horse in what is now essentially an iOS-SamsungAndroid race.

References to Windows Phone 8 started already appearing in apps and analytics too, so hopefully things are progressing nicely towards Microsoft's Windows Phone Developer Summit on 20/21 next month, where Apollo is rumored to be previewed. 

A close launch with Win 8, on which kernel the new WP version might be built, would further enhance the appeal of Apollo as there will be a whole new ecosystem out there to connect to.

Thanks for the tip!
