Leaked roadmap says WP Tango coming in Q2 2012, Apollo in Q4 - read the full textA leaked roadmap offers new info on the release schedule for Windows Phone updates, which doesn’t quite line up with the info we heard about a week ago. Plus, it's a leaked schedule, so take it with a pinch of salt. The roadmap has the Tango update arriving in Q2 of 2012. The earlier info...

i really like the way WP7 phones perform coz they're too fast! not that laggy when you scroll and browse the phone's contents. the only issue is that they're only stuck with a non-expandable memory. if only they have at least a minimum of 16GB in memory though its non-expandable, at least its worth every penny that its fans spend. iOS is non-expandable as well however, 16GB is their least memory out in the market. i wanna try a WP7 device but i also look for the value that i'll be getting in spending. if WP7 releases a device with a 32GB memory maybe i'll try it. for now, i'll stay with RIM and iOS.

What about basic featues, that everybody expect WP has? Too bad Nokia choosed the worst system on market for their phones.

I think microsoft and nokia are taking their own time and not jumping in wagon of out smarting their competiter and multi cores are needed cause gap between laptop and mobile are going to shrink in coming times so all the best to both company

I wonder if the present crop of WP phones will be capable of running WP8 OS, and if MS will update all phones to WP8.

Yep, no need for more cores and for more battery drain when the OS has no use for them.

I just want to see some more models with hardware keyboards..

There was the HTC Arrive about 15-16 months ago... I can't recall any others.
