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.

Just days after they killed Meltemi, Microsoft killed their current line of Lumias, and ensured the low-end market they went for with the 610 has now been awarded to Google (as WP8 demands dual core CPUs).

Indeed. The timing, Surface and Windows Phone 7 upgrades impossible, right after Nokia killed its remaining alternate is ... funny.
