Next Windows Phone Version After Mango To Be Called Apollo?

Windows Phone (version 7.1 or 7.5) Mango is far from being on people’s smartphones and we are already hearing talks about the alleged update to arrive after Windows Phone Mango. It will purportedly be called Windows 8 Apollo.

There are no fruit names here, just continuing the line of names ending with letter “o” (NoDo, Mango, Apollo). Apollo could mean many things, from the Greek name of the planet Mercury, God of the Sun, and so on, but it will most importantly mean the unification of the platforms, according to rumors.

The Apollo codename was hinted by an anonymous source to MonSmartphone and WMPowerUser reports that, when it will come out in 2012, Windows 8 Apollo “will use the same APX app format as Windows 8, and may represent the unification of the platforms, with Windows Phone 8 being ported to the NT kernel”.
