One of the most interesting topics concerning Windows Phone is the one about the soon-to-come update and which devices are going to receive it. Although Microsoft have made an official statement on the subject, it wasn’t all that clear, whether or not all current smartphones are going to receive the new version of Microsoft’s mobile OS, which is currently known as Windows Phone 8 – Apollo, so the question remains. According to a Microsoft employee, the update is going to be available for every WP device out there.

The interesting thing is, though, that he has quoted an official statement, which later turned out to never have been made. The Verge, on the other hand, have received information from a trusted source, that such an update has not been planned and although it’s very likely, that Microsoft include some of the elements of Windows Phone Apollo in other update packages, intended for the phones, which won’t get the real deal, the major update itself is going to be available for less devices. Guess we’re going to have to wait and see who’s right. B. A.
