Windows Phone 8 Appears in App Usage Statistics

Windows Phone logoMicrosoft is moving closer to the launch of the next flavor of its mobile operating system, supposedly dubbed Windows Phone 8.

Reportedly, the company is working on testing the upcoming platform to make sure that it is compatible with existing software, just as previously promised.

The “I'm a WP7!” app has registered usage on a Windows Phone 8 "Apollo" build 8.0.9662.0, though it seems that it was loaded in an emulator.

While the results might have been spoofed, the app’s developer claims that they show reality, and that the Time Zone Offset lines up with Pacific Coast.

Moreover, the guys over at WPCentral report that Microsoft has already started "dogfooding" Windows Phone 8 on March 30th, which clearly shows that it is moving closer to a final release.

Microsoft has yet to confirm any official info on Windows Phone 8, which is rumored to be planned for launch in late 2012.
