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.

MS and Nokia

It seems very likely that Microsoft will buy Nokia, especially since they can't seem to get other hardware vendors to invest to in phones.

Or maybe they don't have to. Elop doesn't seem to have a back up plan, like moving to android or renewing their own OS development. So Nokia has to take whatever MS gives them, including this move with wm8 not running on any existing lumina. Elop should be pissed, but I guessing he's not.
