Microsoft’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 Apollo update is expected to introduce the world to dual-core Windows Phone handsets, a move which we’re sure that many are looking forward to. While Windows Phone devices have no problems running on the single-core processors at the moment, on paper it certainly looks like they might be lagging behind Android’s quad-core beasts. In any case, if you were looking forward to seeing Windows Phone 8 handsets arrive on any of the major carriers, Sprint looks like they might be interested in introducing some of them.
This was revealed by Sprint’s director of consumer acquisition, David Owens, who stated at CTIA that the carrier is “still bullish on Apollo”, leading some to believe that this could mean that Sprint might expand their Windows Phone portfolio once Windows Phone 8 devices have been made available. While this is by no means a confirmation of sorts, it is a pretty optimistic view for Sprint subscribers who might be interested in seeing what the Windows Phone platform has to offer.
