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.

Current Lumia phones are in many markets really cheap, even without upgrade they are still an "okeish" buy.
The problem for WP8 is that is trying to catch up other phone OSes and it's so faraway from release date.
Another problem is that people might feel like this is a new OS and that selling almost for nothing Lumia 900s, was just Nokia wasting money (let's wait for Q2 results) without bringing people to the platform.
Also Lumia sales will take a dive after these news.
