Apollo on June 20th?

[sc:mobile-category ]There has been a lot of speculation around Windows Phone 8 and it looks like we might be getting some actual details this week!

Microsoft has schedule it’s Windows Phone Summit for June 20th and included the tag line “A sneak peek at the future of Windows Phone.”

Now what this means is open for debate, but in general the consensus seems to be Apollo will get unveiled.  But might that be expecting too much from a “sneak peek”?  I think it is more likely we’ll see a quick demo of Apollo, some general new hardware details and then a general timeframe for release.

So here are my predictions on what we’ll get out of the sneak peek and their likelyhoods predicated on Apollo being what they are talking about:

  • New home screen details (more types of live tiles, maybe a horizontal view and groups) – 100%
  • Demo of some Skype Integration – 80%
  • Demo of FULL Skype Integration – 30%
  • Dual core support – 100%
  • Quad core support – 5%
  • multiple resolutions – 100%
  • New hardware demo unit – %100
  • Release date of Q4 – 80%
  • Release date of Q3 – 19%
  • Release date of Q1/13 – 1%
  • Developers tools preview/beta/rc – 90%
  • New maps functionality – 75%
  • New camera functionality – 20%
  • New voice functionality – 60%
  • Game demo – 100%
  • Upgradeability announcement for all WP7 devices – 0%
  • Upgradeability announcement for most WP7 devices – 30%
  • Upgradeability announcement for some Wp7 devices – 60%
  • No upgradeability announcement – 30%
  • NT Kernel in Apollo – 100%
