Actually Microsoft May Not Be Updating Windows Phone 7 To Windows Phone 8

Posted Apr 18, 2012

Looks like we spoke too soon about the Windows Phone 7 handsets being upgraded to Windows Phone 8. Even though Microsoft evangelist Nuno Silva said that the upgrades are happening, the Windows Phone team actually does not know if they will. Sources with ZDNet and The Verge said that the older handsets will stay at pre-Apollo versions. Microsoft is currently being silent on the issue. If there’s anything that we have learned from Apple, silence can be golden sometimes when it comes to announcing mobile software updates up until its official.
