Windows Phone 8 announcement involves multi-core processors, new OS core
Details: Windows Phone 8, code-named “Apollo,” is a quietly major upgrade to Windows Phone at a root level. A much faster processor, a system that casts off the chains of Windows Mobile CE, and probably a few other surprises announced later today and tomorrow.
Likelihood: 75-80 percent. Microsoft has proven pretty good at keeping secrets of late, so not everything we think we know about their self-designed products turns out to be true (see above).
Get excited?: Windows Phone is always interesting, unless you make your living off of commissions from phone sales.
