Okay, let’s face the truth: All current line of Windows Phone 7 WILL NOT get the Windows Phone 8 update. But that DOESN’T mean that your current phone WILL NOT be updated in the future.
The thing is, your phone will be updated IF your phone manufacturer wants to push an update for your device or not, clearly the future of your phone is now on the hands of the OEM, and not Microsoft.
You may be wondering why Microsoft didn’t supported the current generation line of Windows Phone, well to make it short, the upcoming OS has been built from ground up to support new hardware features like: A Multiple core processor support, MicroSD support, NFC, and a native experience for apps and games (Since WP8 will be sharing some codes with Windows 8, in technical terms, they’re both built from Windows NT) and other things that AREN’T compatible with your current device.
To be honest, the current generation of Windows Phone is fast enough to help you do the things you needed to do. You only want to have a multiple core support if you want to play games with extreme performance a.k.a native experience. I also admire the current line of WP having no MicroSD support, but since Microsoft would like to battle android, symbian 40 and the upcoming Firefox OS on the feature phone arena, they have added MicroSD.
So.. In the end of the day, it’s a Win-Win situation. You have a faster phone to do the things you need to do in life and when the time has come for you to upgrade, and still want a Windows Phone, you’ll be benefiting from the awesome hardware features that Microsoft has to offer.
