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.
It is very unusual to announce an anticipated version of the operating system with the only purpose to say that some people will not be able to use it. Nokia is seriously endangered by this innovation, because those who bought the phones from Lumia line-up will not be able to update their software.
Nokia is in the most difficult situation in the US market. The company lost in the rivalry with Samsung Electronics and Motorola and has only a small group of fans. This resulted in the excessive promotion of Lumia 900 in the States, which required a lot of money. In the end Nokia fired thousands of people who used to work for the company.
According to the suppositions of analytics, Windows Phone 8 is going to rise in quality greatly. The key point of the new version is the common core between the PC/ tablet’ and the handset’s operating systems, which will make the integration process easier.
Even though Windows says it is planning to come up with some updates for the seventh version to look like the eighth one, the users might not be very happy because of this news. In a contrary, it is always possible to update the iOS version on Apple gadgets to the newest one, no matter how it will work in reality. The users can perform the same thing on Android too.
