Windows If you ever needed any proof it's anything but roses ans sunshine over at Microsoft's Windows Phone division, it's this. The next version of Windows Phone, WP8, will run on the NT kernel, which marks a pretty substantial departure from the current release. This raises the question: will current handsets be upgradeable to WP8? First, Microsoft indicated no. Then they said yes (interview retracted). And now, they're saying no again.

WP7 was stillborn and never really lived. Sure, a few bloggers loved playing with the phones for a few minutes, but in the real world nearly nobody bought one(only people I know who have one got them really really cheap because vendors needed to clear out inventory)
Here at OSnews there will be a few people who have one, but this is a really special part of the real world.
