Reading between the lines: Office on iPad, Windows Phone upgrades | ZDNet →http://www.zdnet.com/blog/microsoft/reading-between-the-lines-office-on-ipad-windows-phone-upgrades/12101?tag=mantle_skin;content
Mary-Jo Foley picks through some comments and non-denials from Kurt DelBene, the President of the Microsoft Business Division, and concludes that no current Windows Phone 7 phone will receive an upgrade to Windows Phone 8. If true, that’s a horrible decision, regardless of whether Microsoft or the carriers had more weight in making it.
Five years in with the iPhone, two to three years of free OS upgrades, and Apple claiming the majority of industry profits with just a single new handset each year, and the carriers and competition still don’t get it. Astounding.
