Microsoft probably to upgrade WP8 devices to next OS release - read the full textMicrosoft's Windows Phone 8 powered smartphones will be in line for the future OS upgrades and the users of the WP 8 will not be left high and dry unlike the Windows Phone 7.x owners, who weren't able to update to Windows Phone 8. The good news for all the folks with WP8 is that the platform...

That's why it's not upgradeable to WP8. WP8 is using the Windows NT kernel, same kernel as Windows 8, Windows 2012 Server, etc... It's more future proofed.

> In reply to Abe01 @ 2013-03-01 19:03 from sSPi - click to readYes, that would satisfy me. I just don't want to see any nonsense such as updates not being compatible with devices that have been sold within the last year or so. You know, something like "well, this update only works with devices with 1gb of RAM or higher so sorry Lumia 520, 620 & 720 owners but you don't qualify."

Customers, particularly the 2-year contract ones, HATE that kind of stuff with a passion. So if MS wants people to believe in the WP8 platform and embrace it like the love of a good woman, they won't pull any stunts like the one I just mentioned.

No offense Microsoft, but after screwing over the WP7.5 early adopters what makes you think anyone will believe what you have to say about updates? Also, the words "probably" and "might" in this article don't exactly inspire confidence. Actions speak louder than words. You want to earn our trust back? Deliver. Period.
