Nokia is Suffering from Windows Phone 8 Update

The fact that Microsoft decided to prevent Window Phones of older versions from upgrading drags Nokia’s Lumia reputation and popularity down. Windows Phone 8 platform is good-looking and it is a pity that those who have bought Windows handsets more than two years ago would not be able to check it, according to the decision made by Microsoft.

      Nokia’s ads were right!

      Their customers were taking part in the largest Beta-Test EVER!

    Just bought a Lumia 900 a few months ago. Goodbye Microsoft on my next upgrade.

      Yup now the lumia 900 commercials of being a beta tester can end lol…

      Ok. If you even own a lumina, you probably got it for $49. Get over it. Or go buy an iphone, Siri would love to hear from you.

    Windows Phone 7.8 for legacy devices will have lots of WP8 features. Not much different from iOS on older devices like the 3GS

      Except for the part where the 3GS is THREE YEARS OLD.
      Oh, if you want to choose the original iPad, it’s TWO years old. Still a hell of a lot better than most–all, actually–WP7 devices.

      Agreed. I don’t understand all of this outrage. How many Android phone pre-2.0 received the update to Eclair? Next to none. How many Gingerbread tablets received Honeycomb… or Honeycomb to Ice Cream Sandwich. What OS is the GSII running a year later? I’ve pretty sure it’s not ICS. When you buy an Android phone you have to expect it to be outdated in 6 months. The fact that MS said it would support all new phones for at least 18 months is huge.

    Other than Hardware related features… what will the legacy phones miss. Before you call us “Shafted” can you please explain? Or is this another iOS fan boy comparison?

      Definately another iOS fan boy comparison.

    Why would Lumia 900 need multiprocessor and higher resolution support? That’s why it doesn’t need Windows 8.

    WP 7.8 offers a new start screen. Lumia 900 owners will get it unless your carrier doesn’t allow it.

      Maybe if it did, it would be upgradeable! How’s that obsolete hardware treating you now?

  • Archipellago

    I wonder if Nokia will run a commercial this Fall saying the Windows Phone Beta Test is over.

    • alandail

      By this fall, they wont have the money to take out an ad.
