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.

Except those 5 Sony devices have 5 separate SKUs, 5 separate model numbers, 5 separate names, 5 separate packages, etc. They are 5 separate things. They do not share a common name in any way.

"iOS 6" on the 3GS is not the same thing as "iOS 6" on the 4 is not the same thing as "iOS 6" on the 4s is not the same thing as "iOS 6" on the iPad ... yet they are all called the same thing!

That's the difference, which you seem to have missed.

With Windows 7, each version (which are different from each other) has a different name: Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium, Pro, Ultimate.

With iOS 6, each version (which are different from each other) has the same name: iOS 6.

So, you have a user with a 3GS upgraded to "iOS 6" talking to a user with a 4s upgraded to "iOS 6" being confused about what the 4s user is talking about, since the features aren't available on his device.
