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 really comparable.
Android 2.1 and 4.0 differ mostly in number of Apis and the style guide.
WP7 and WP8 differ in programming paradigm. One that excludes maintaining common codebase with established platform with WP7. That's world of difference.
