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.

Nice. Maybe now the Mozilla guys will be able to write a mobile Firefox port for it.

There is *nothing* to suggest that a port of 3rd party browsers is possible now.
The reason porting 3rd party browsers is currently impossible is because the API simply does not allow the access to the system needed to load up a different renderer (say, Webkit). It's purely because of API limitations and not anything else.
