Windows Phone Apollo event set to June 20
| by Karan Shah |
Microsoft has already sent out invitations for a sneak peak into the next iteration of its Windows Phone operating system and the date has been set to June 20, which is a fortnight from now. Dubbed Apollo, this next version of Windows Phone has already garnered a lot of interest amongst users, developers and competitors alike, as it may truly unleash the potential of Windows Phone devices. As reported, this will be the next major release by Microsoft and will be dubbed as Windows Phone 8.0. The new release is eagerly anticipated as it has been confirmed that Apollo will include a multi-core CPU, along with backward compatibility with the existing Windows Phone 7.5 applications.
Windows Phone 7 had a couple of limitations from the hardware point of view – display resolutions of 480 x 800, microSD card support, NFC support, TV out and so on, which may not be a big deal individually really, but all accumulated together did give Windows Phone 7 a few negative marks. Even on the software side, recording was limited to 720p and UI customizations weren’t aplenty. We aren’t particularly complaining about the user interface. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the UI, but sometimes users would want that slight amount of customization that might alter the look and feel of your phone. A desktop wallpaper, an alternate launcher, or simply minor tweaks in the layout means that you would never get tired of the tile interface and have one more option to choose from.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
