I’ll be honest, I’ve never used a Windows Phone extensively. And its not from lack of trying either – I don’t have a Cell C store in my area, and the only phones I’ve handled have been under owner supervision and only for two minutes. I really have no clue if I’ll even like it. But what I’ve seen so far does excite my inner geek, and with the news of the updates planned for Windows Phone Apollo I’m inching closer to choosing one as my main handset.
Windows Phone 7 launched in 2010 and gained traction with critics, the public and developers lauding the new interface, the ease of use and ergonomics involved in the interface design, and the simplicity that came with programming for the platform. Today, with Nokia and HTC as their major licensees, one major update done and over two million handsets worldwide, Microsoft has seen fit to now detail the next major OS update, codanamed Apollo.
