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.

It's not a good thing for Nokia at all. Like the man said, it's exactly like Apple would license some of the special software services they offer to everybody for a fixed price. And besides, they did that in the past when they tried to licensed Mac OS to 3rd party manufactures and while doing so failed to sell their own hardware because of it.


Um, yeah, it is. If you choose Windows Phone, it's very highly likely that you chose a Lumia device, anyway. And they get paid, regardless.
