With glimpse of Windows Phone 8 at developer conference in Sans Francisco, Microsoft has also confirmed that the current Windows Phone devices won’t be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 8.
Windows Phone 8 is built upon the next generation technology supporting multi-core processors, higher-resolution screens and greater compatibility with Windows 8. And no offense! The current hardware is not the right playground for this.
However the company has scheduled a future update sometime after Windows Phone 8 release, marking Windows Phone 7.8 for existing Windows Phone 7.5 handset. It will back port selective features from Windows Phone 8 to its predecessor including its redesigned Start screen aka Home screen.
This may relieve existing consumers!
But if you are looking to buy a Windows Phone; personally I think – you should wait for this holiday season when Nokia, Huawei, Samsung, and HTC will come up with new Windows Phone 8 devices.
