Leaked Microsoft roadmap points to launch of Tango update in Q2 and Apollo update in Q4

Leaked Microsoft roadmap points to launch of Tango update in Q2 and Apollo update in Q4

Now that Microsoft has gotten that perky Mango update out of the way, it looks like the company has shifted its focus towards the next two updates which are scheduled for 2012. An alleged leaked roadmap from Microsoft indicates that the Tango update is scheduled for a Q2 launch while the Apollo update would be available in Q4 of next year.

Details about the two new updates are scarce, but rumor has it that Microsoft will be using the Tango update to deliver support for a wider variety of chipsets which would allow HTC and other OEMs to introduce new Windows Phone devices are different price points, possibly driving down the cost for consumers. The Apollo update is said to help Microsoft introduce “competitive smartphones” which will feature support for technologies like NFC, LTE and have a focus around business services which could give Microsoft a leg up over Android in the corporate world.

Since Microsoft and Nokia seem to be joined at the hip these days, don’t expect HTC to be first out of the gate with devices running on Windows Phone Tango and Apollo updates even though Microsoft and HTC do have a long history of close collaboration.
