Nuno Silva, a leading developer for Windows Phone, returned to inconsistent statements made on the site Zwame. The applicant explains the upgrade can be confused with the applications of mobile.
Nothing works at Microsoft. As we reported Wednesday, the compatibility of Windows Phone 8 (aka Apollo) will, for most Windows Mobile 7.5 Phone today (aka Mango), stupidly impossible.
Different story in Portugal, where Nuno Silva, developer for Windows Phone secured the opposite: "What I am authorized to say is that current devices will be upgraded to the next major version of Windows Phone," he argued in Zwame site.
Rumors due to an error
The developer is now back on his comments via a blog post: "I inadvertently confused the application compatibility and updating terminals, which caused rumors on the web. I have in no way wanted to give the impression that I gave information about products under development or their possible updates. "
For its part, the parent company Microsoft has felt obliged to deliver a statement in which she also insists on the compatibility updates, carefully omitting to mention that of terminals:
Microsoft maintains the vagueness about hardware compatibility
"We have publicly stated that the applications available in our shop now run on the next version of Windows Phone. Apart from that, we did not share more information on the trips to come. "
It would seem indeed confirmed that the owners of the latest Nokia Lumia or other terminal in Mango will not have access to Apollo (Windows Phone 8). Another blow for struggling to install Microsoft's mobile operating system market.
