Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

You may not even get the next major update. Hopefully everyone running wp8 will get 9 or whatever the new update next year will be called but, no matter what you think of wp or Microsoft, you have to acknowledge that they do not have a reliable track record of providing new major versions to "old" hardware for Windows Phone so far.
