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.

They are saying it "sold out"...well, how many phones, exactly, is that? 1 million? 2? Not 4 million, then it would have been all over the news, since that is what Apple achieved with the 4s over it's initial weekend. So we have a low number shipped to retailers so they can say "WOW! We sold out! Look how great we are!" When in reality, they are probably being BURIED, even in the US. Since there are over 850,000 Android devices activated EVERY DAY, plus God only knows how many iPhones...how many will Microsoft and Nokia have to sell to even make a DENT in their abysmal 2.5% market share?
