Dev retracts Windows Phone 8 update claims
Earlier this week, Microsoft ‘developer evangelist’ Nuno Silva created a storm of controversy when he stated in a video interview that all first- and second-generation Windows Phones would be updated to Windows Phone 8 “Apollo”, when it arrives later this year.
Subsequently, sources close to Microsoft insisted that Silva had spoken out of turn, and that the company in fact has no plans to provide an official upgrade path for current handsets to the new Windows Phone OS.
Today, Silva has chosen to clarify his comments on his MSDN blog, where he acknowledges that some of his comments “on the future of Windows Phone…created confusion” – an understatement, to say the least. It turns out that it was all a bit of a misunderstanding.
