The Windows Phone OS is completely unrelated to the older Windows Mobile OS. It's built from the ground up. If you have actually used this OS, you would know.

When I first saw Windows Phone OS, I didn't think I would like it (was gonna pick Android), but when I actually gave it a chance, I found it was really easy to use, tightly integrate with social networking, and relatively bug free.

For one, don't call it Windows 8 'Mobile' - it really goes against the point you are trying to make. This may cause people associate Windows Phone with the older and completely unrelated Windows Mobile platform, which, let's be honest here, wasn't the best OS around. People need to realize that Windows Phone is built from the ground up, and shares nothing from its predecessor.

The other thing is, is that you should not call something 'crap'. There is a lot of Nokia/Symbian loyalist here, so if your bagging their OS of choice (that they might be choosing to move from), really doesn't make for good first impressions for the Windows Phone community.

By this I mean slimmer than its desktop counterpart. Current Windows Phone OS is built on Windows CE Kernel.

It is, however, unknown if they will receive any major versions after Windows Phone 8; i.e Windows Phone 9. Rest assure though, that they will receive incremental updates. You also got to take note that most other OS's only support previous phones for a few versions too. Also, Windows Phone 8 is said to be built upon Windows NT ARM kernel, the effects of this on current hardware are yet to be seen, of course. The bright side of this ARM version is that it should be a cleaner/slimmer kernel than X86 kernel.

P.S. I used to use Symbian OS a lot - NGage, N70, 6120c, N97. Although a good OS at the time, it didn't age well, especially once touchscreens became the norm.

does anyone firmly know whether this phone can recv OS updates to future releases, say WP8 and beyond. I use s60 devices that can't get Anna or Belle updates, dont want to be stuck like that. I would prefer buying a Belle phone instead if that's the case.

The only difference is the name, its no longer iTunes but Zune. Same thing, and same result: U cant use ur own files, u will be tied in and have to pay for everything u will put onto this fone.

Yes, they copy iPhone, not design or tech, but ecosystem. A strategy to lock you in and make you do things THEIR way.

Me and lotsa others said that before Bada was available in stores, "there will be no updates, der will be no software, samsung has never cared abt fixing bugs and will not do it this time also". This was publicly known, you knew it also.

Now its time to warn ppl also about Nokai+WP, this is not gonna be a happy story, its gonna be bad. Dont think of what Nokia did in the past, this is the new Nokia we are dealing with, Elops Nokia in bed with Microsoft. Nothing good will come out of this. Feel free to buy Lumia but be prepared to regret. Windows Mobile OS has proven too many times in the past that it doesnt have the right of life.
