Windows So, Windows Phone 7.5. I love it - warts and all. It has its issues, but it's so distinctive and fun it's pretty hard to not like it. So, for me, those three other people, and that cow, Microsoft today announced Windows Phone 8. It brings lots of cool new features, is built upon the Windows NT kernel and shares much of its lower levels with Windows 8, and oh, not a single current Windows Phone 7 device will be upgraded to it.

Mixed feelings

I do not know how exactly to feel about this. On one hand, I still have my (free) HTC Titan, and it will receive one more (probably final) update. On the other hand, I'll be missing on Windows 8, especially the kernel.

My major concern is the app compatibility. If vendors mostly go C++ and DirectX, over C# and XNA, and ignore the current phones, I'll practically have a brick.
