Nokia Lumia 900 Apollo update disappointment
Nokia is currently making a big push with its line up of handsets that come running the Windows Phone operating system, which is a move that the company is hoping, will improve its ailing smartphone fortunes, but today we have news of some Nokia Lumia 900 Apollo disappointment.
Back in April users of the Windows Phone platform were left with the news that current handsets on the platform, such as the Nokia Lumia 900 may not receive the upgrade to Apollo, otherwise known as Windows Phone 8, but as a report on SlashGear is reporting it seems the smartphone definitely won’t be getting the new software.
A T-Mobile employee has mentioned that the update won’t be coming to the handset and comes after T-Mobile customers asked the carrier when the Nokia Lumia 900 was going to be released on the network. The country saw the unlocked version of the handset released last week but it wasn’t available on T-Mobile, and after customers questioned this, an employee said the Lumia 900 won’t be coming.
The reason for its absence is being given as the Apollo update won’t be coming to the handset, and the company believes this will leave its customers frustrated if they purchase a new smartphone that wouldn’t be getting an update sometime after. It was also being claimed that the software will be released during the fourth quarter of this year, and earlier today we told you that Microsoft is expected to be announced today.
This latest news comes shortly after Microsoft developer Nuno Silva hinted that all current Windows Phone hardware would receive the Apollo update later this year, but an anonymous source at Microsoft quickly denied this.
Do you have the Nokia Lumia 900 and disappointed not to be receiving the Windows Phone 8 update?
