..just my opinion though...
Good arguement. I disagree though. I don't see Apollo hitting gen 1 devices. Many of the gen 1 devices, were old design, old hardware. They lacked the ability to do 4g and other accepted 'Now" functions....There may be 1 or 2 devices from gen 1 that could qualify, but, if looking for a continuing impact, Apollo on new devices, keeps the Wow going. Though I believe the Lumia 900 could be a Apollo device, the Lumia 710 most likely isn't. Now that OEMs are getting Windows Phones updated or compatible ( with android) hardware, I would think they would want those gen 1 devices to leave the market. Just my opinion....
