    Is a developer evangelist a spokesperson?

    But that said, it seems obvious. The Lumia's are not far away hardware-wise from 1st gen WP7 machines. Aside from an artificial block it seems reasonable to assume that a) current WP7's will be upgradable to Apollo and b) the last-gen phones will be too since they basically haven't changed.

    Now, if/when Apollo comes out, will it be pushed out by MS or will it be up to the individual phone companies to release it? I became a WP7 user just as Mango came out so I was updating my phone on Sprint from WP7 to the updated OS and then about 3 days later I got Mango so I never had to really wait like we have for the interim update that hasn't come.

    So, I'm still kinda new to how they are running WP as compared to WM from the past.

    Why would they not have said by now, it has to be holding a lot of people back from getting on board now? I can see no reason for the secrecy personally.

    You don't know if Apollo is...real? Whether it keeps that name or not, you know there will be another system version coming.

    And I highly doubt that news of the next update is the source of slow sales for WP

    Yeah, I have this terrible feeling that Apollo doesn't exist. And Microsoft will just let WP7 die, it has being bothering ever since it was a no show at CES/MWC.

    They already added live tiles to Windows 8. No point in killing the OS now. Windows Phone is definitely not dead. Maybe in Windows 9...

    Tango hasn't even been announced and until like last month Belfiore wouldn't even use that word but we have known it exists... We have known for some time now that MSFT chooses to keep quiet about updates to help build hype and have wanted it to be this way since the beginning. Factor in what happened due to the fact that they announced 7.5 to early mixed with the pocketnow apollo leak.

    This almost seems like attention to why it was a no show was not paid.

    I don't know how bad Gingerbread is. But my optimus 7 just got shamed harshly today by a Mytouch 4G T_T. Though it was mostly the fault of the terrible Facebook app+Lack of flash.

    Let's hope Apollo is really and makes all our wishers come true, because my contract will run out next year and I don't want to use any other OS.
