http://www.theverge.com/2012/6/20/3...8-upgrade-no-windows-phone-8-existing-devices http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/20/microsoft-unveils-windows-phone-7-8-for-legacy-devices/ Microsoft really knows how to make windows phone users happy with their announcement today owners of current generation Windows phones will not get Windows 8 upgrades. They will get "skinned" to look like Windows 8 but won't get the core windows 8 upgrade. I have all types of phones (including Gnex/Nokia Lumia 900/iphone 4S). So am a phone junkie. But this is a PR nightmare for Microsoft for current windows phone users. Not a good way to try to get market share. Windows phone, if you haven't tried it is really a nice change from iOS and Android. Sure there are some must have apps that aren't there (Pandora, Chase bank etc). But there's no lag and a very fluid experience. But Microsoft may be losing all the steam with this kind of announcement. I don't after today, the Lumia 900 or Titan 2 or other windows phone will be big sellers with basically EOL announcement by Microsoft. Can you imagine if Apple said today that iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS will not get iOS6? Sales would tank immediately.
