Windows I'm back from my vacation to the US, the jetlag has mostly passed, so back to OSNews it is! So, Windows 8 has been out for only a little while, and we're already moving on to the next 'version' of Windows. Version is between quotation marks, because unlike previous releases, this doesn't appear to be the a monolithic single release. Instead, Windows Blue, as it's currently codenamed, is more of a procedural change than a technical change: Windows is moving to yearly releases for all devices - PC, tablet, phone.

Window 8 universal update across all devices: Yes
Windows phone 8 universal update across all devices: No.

I mean how many windows phone 7 devices are up-gradable to windows phone 8? Zero?

I understand the switch from windows ce to windows nt kernel was a big one,but they haven't proved they can do a major phone upgrade across devices. Until they do, I'm assuming they can't based on past history.
