+ - Microsoft extends Windows Phone 8 support cycle through 2015->

Submitted by hypnosec
hypnosec (2231454) writes "Microsoft has announced an extension to Windows Phone 8 support cycle thereby pushing the end-of-life date for the mobile OS platform to January 12, 2016. Promising to dole out an update pack in first half of 2014, Microsoft is seemingly working towards gaining more enterprise customers. Previously, Microsoft slated the end of mainstream support for Windows Phone 8 as July 8, 2014 – implying that all the WP8 smartphones being sold currently will be obsolete in about a year’s time. The latest change in the support lifecycle effectively doubles the life of current WP8 smartphones to 36 months."
