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.

If the Lumia 900 is selling well, then doesn't this news make it worse. Considering that Windows 7 was selling very poorly, that would mean that when Apollo is released, 75%+ of the phones that will be abandoned will be less than a year old. And the most popular models (800 & 900) are over $500 or come with 2 year commitments.
