Microsoft screws its entire Windows Phone user base with no-update-for-you plan
I was waiting for a homepage post about this, but I guess it isn't coming.
I have to say this has made me very angry. I've had my Nokia Lumia 800 for just over 5 weeks, and to find out that Microsoft is effectively making my device redundant, not to mention openly describing it as a "legacy" device is hugely frustrating. These handsets are still on sale!
Not only that, but Nokia has decided that this is all fine and dandy because they don't think most customers care about updates:
On the plus side though, this update isn't going to be out for a few months and Microsoft has promised that the Windows Phone 7.8 update my phone will be getting will definitely include the awesome home screen rework, that lets you resize all tiles.
They also said that most of the features for Windows Phone 8 (and hopefully 7.8) haven't yet been announced as they have only given a developer preview so far.

Well to be honest, iOS devices are the only ones in the world that get frequent software updates over a long period. Leaving people high and dry with the operating system the phone originally shipped with is a tried and tested method used in the phone industry.
