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.

As usual Microsoft is confused and not sure how to work on mobile and web platform. I hate their inconsistency. First they announce some xyz mobile platform and scraped it within 2 months... I was hoping that after my android becomes old (already 1 year old) I will definitely try WP7 but this news is not that good! I'll have to rethink if I should wait for WP8 rather than buying the buggy WP7!
