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.

"Nokia Maps will now fuel the first party map experience in Windows Phone 8"

They chose WP and not Android to differentiate themselves (according to Elop) and now everybody will have their unique applications. How funny.

What's so funny? Microsoft paying Nokia to use their maps service is only a good thing for Nokia.
