Gelvin, 28 Oct 2013You are confusing things here. The reason why Windows Phone 7.x didn't get Windows Phone 8 is ... moreWindows Phone 7 was written in Windows CE Kernel. It doesn't support dual core on phones. Windows Phone 8 is based on the Windows NT Kernel that is in Windows desktops like Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Server 2008/2012. It has unlimited potential right now with Windows NT kernel. Windows Phone 9 will most likely be based on Windows NT kernel. They are not going to switch away from that any time soon.
No extra option,no more spcef.very boor phones windos 8 is very bad phones, very heavy lumia
how can you compare nokia live ikones on display with dead ones on iPhones and androids... those 2 companies far beahid and absolet.. don't you see that?
While Lumia 1520 is awesome.. It is not the best phone for me. U hope some day we will get a Lumia 1020 upgrade with Snapd 800. 6 inch is a bit too much for me and I feel Lumia 920/1020 screen us good. Waiting to hold 1520 in my hands in hope that it changes my perception.
i think with this device samsung and apple have to be careful,have been thinking of geting the note 3 or the lumia 1020 and when i see this one i changing my mind.so now i´m waiting for this one it´s much better for proffessional like me...god Job Nokia
I have an HTC one x and lumia 620 .I'm gonna get this phone soon.so haters just continue to hate.maybe you are getting paid by samdung
Awesome specifications, just what the doctor ordered. Very very contemporary.
jbpianist28, 28 Oct 2013I think he means its restricted, but it is not, apple is thoughWell! Windows Phone is not limited buy not restricted like Apple. So yes, it's not restricted but it's not free like Android.

The reason why Windows Phone 7.x didn't get Windows Phone 8 is because of the difference in Kernels. Windows Phone 7.x is written on NT kernel while Windows Phone 8 is on a different kernel that enables support of a processor more than a single core. This is why none of the phones are upgraded to Windows Phone 8.
As far as Windows Phone 9, I don't know at which kernel it will be on but the chances are the same as Windows Phone 8. If not, then Microsoft will provide an update as promised so that all the Windows Phone 8 will be updated to Windows Phone 9 as the current Windows Phone 8 are on GDR3 while they will be updating to Windows Phone 8.1 shortly.
Things from Windows Phone 8 are pretty much changed.
when u develop such a nice cellphone...
why u do not upgrade secondary camera upto 5-8MP

However, lets not forget the that the excuse given previously was inadequate or incompatible hardware. Now who defines the hardware, even more so with the upcoming purchase of Nokia by MS? MS, of course, and a bitter personal experience with MS has shown they are quite capable of deliberately building in obsolescence to their phones to get oput of providing updates in SW. So we will see what actually transpires. I hope my cynacism is wrong but their track record is not good and I would want more than this article before buying a WP8 device given their previous track record quite honestly.

All wp8 devices have already recieved 3rd major update as GDR3..so plz stop spreading rumours....
For those who think Samsung et al are bad for updates, you can look forward to no major updates for this device ever. MS have a long track record of it. No device running WM5 got an update to 6, no updates from 6 to even 6.5, let alone WP7, and none from 7.x to 8. So should MS bring devices with say 9.x next year, which is quite likely, and you have purchased this phone on a 2 year contract you can look forward to a year of playing catch up. Just great for a flagship phone
