    Not Compatible!

    M$ just announced Windows Phone 8. (Engadget)
    It is not compatible with existing Windows Phone handsets and they announced there will be no upgrade path.

    [sarcasm]
    I haven't even taken the shipping screen protector off my new "The Beta Test Is Over" phone and already it is non-upgradeable and obsolete.
    I'M NEVER GONNA BUY NOTHING FROM THOSE *&@$&^$& AGAIN.
    I gonna go back to my dumb LG-620 phone. That'll show them.
    [/sarcasm]

    And we thought we had it bad with ICS merely being late.

    That's because most current phones are single core on 512mb ram. Not dual core 1 gb ram with the 'we just don't want to' factor at work.

    Did anyone notice the Excite LE got an additional upgrade on top of ICS already? Exactly.

    From posts elsewhere on this forum, I saw the non-LE version (Tegra 3) came with ICS but the LE didn't. This was just ketchup!

    What does that have to do with this thread? Or anything for that matter?

    Because unlike Android OEMs, Microsoft isn't playing the pick and choose BS. They're actually still giving Win 7 phones an update to resize tiles, which is better than nothing considering those phone specs are worse than a prepaid model I had.

    Meanwhile, more lip service from Toshiba, "A few more months." Will anybody even give a s**t at that point? I'm banking on them hoping not, because you guys still won't have it. But, here's to the best of luck for you. It's all water under the bridge for me now as I unloaded mine. I just chalked it up to a 400 dollar schooling about Android's eco-system. It's pretty much spot-on from the platform it originated from, although worse. At least with Linux you could get an OS update fairly easy with a blank DVD.

    But anywho, this is my swan song post. Guys, it's been a slice. Take care.

    Actually, MS does not require dual core and 1 GB for Windows Phone 8. They are just refusing to upgrade them. Windows Phone 8 supports multi-core and a bunch of other stuff, but doesn't require it. And MS doesn't push updates, the manufacturer do. So many phones may not ever get 7.8 either. Go to Apple where you can stop whining about the OS versions and start whining about not being able to do anything other than what they want you to.

    upgrades not so with closed source mobile o/s's

    From my previous experience with Windows Mobile... MS do never do major upgrades to their pda's / smartphone O/S...
    Like if you have a pda/phone model, it is strictly paired with its O/S

    examples: HTC Angel and WM 2003

    HTC Universal and WM 2005

    same goes with WM 6 and 7...

    only the guys at XDA and some other devs provided cross jumping between phone models and major upgrades...

    what they mean I guess is if you buy their WM8 Pad, do not expect an upgrade to WM9...
    however WM8.x would probably be available (which are just fine tuning, correcting bugs and improving on the same release)

    this was also the case for the Nokia Symbian line of phones...

    it does not warrant a hysterical reaction, this is just how mobile phones are marketed, the phone and its o/s are glued together

    only Android is changing that somewhat, even if with v3, HC they tried to hard link, but they realised it did not suit the opensource model, and to have
    opensource community on board, they had to keep the O/S open, which means upgrades up to the point where the hardware cannot support them...

    something Apple does very astutely with their devices...
