Windows Starting today, Microsoft is pushing out the first major update to its Windows Phone operating system, to 98% of Windows Phone users (the other two will just have to wait). It's loaded with changes and improvement, and this time around, the rollout process appears to be pretty smooth. Another nice touch: Mango beta users (right here) will get the update to the final version like everybody else - you won't have to downgrade to NoDo as previously stated.

Windows 8 system requirements will be same as Windows 7, if not lower, which are: 1 GHz CPU (ARM or x86) 1 GB RAM, 16 GB HDD and DirectX 9 capability.

Look at the latest and upcoming smartphone specs: 1.5 GHz ARM CPU, 1 GB RAM, 64 GB SSD, DirectX 9 capable GPU and qHD screen. Let's not forget upcoming Intel Moorestown x86 CPU for phones and tablets.

Why do we need Windows Phone 7 when we can run Windows 8 with Metro UI on the same hardware?
