Submission + - Current Windows Phone Devices Not Upgradable (winsupersite.com)

MCSEBear writes: Long time Microsoft insider, Paul Thurrott, in his article "Is Time Running Out for Windows Phone?" drops a bombshell for current purchasers of Windows Phone devices:

For users, it’s bad: I’ve been told that absolutely no current Windows Phone handsets will be upgraded to Windows Phone 8

Customers who purchase the current Microsoft/Nokia flagship phone will never receive a single update to the next version of the OS. In contrast, this is something that would never happen to a customer who purchased a flagship Nexus or iPhone where one (or more) updates are a given.
