Microsoft testing Apollo on dual-core chipsets
The Verge is reporting that Microsoft is in the process of testing Windows Phone 8 on the Qualcomm MSM8960 dual-core 1.5GHz system-on-chip for at least one handset.
According to the Verge Sprint is apparently interested in such a handset and has “shared its LTE specifications with Nokia.” Sprint is not expected to release any new Windows Phones until the release of Windows Phone 8.
Of course while Microsoft is working on Windows Phone dual-core support Android OEMs are already releasing devices with Quadcore Nvidia chipsets. On the other hand Windows 8, which is believed to shares a kernel with Windows Phone 8, will definitely support Nvidia’s Tegra 3 solutions, meaning enabling support on Windows Phone 8 should hopefully also be trivial.
