T-Mobile Germany just declared they will not sell the upcoming Nokia Lumia 900 since Microsoft announced the current Windows running devices will not get the Windows Phone 8 (WP8) update.
If you read Microsoft Previews Windows Phone 8 Apollo – Good & Bad News you will find out that Microsoft has confirmed that the current Windows Phone devices will be upgraded to the next version. So basically Microsoft just announced that the Nokia Lumia 900 is outdated before it’s even launched.
This is not the first time Microsoft has done this ,when the launched/ upgraded from Windows 6.5 to Windows Phone 7,The unlucky device was HTC HD2, the device qualified the hardware specifications still it wasn’t given the update as it had four navigation keys at the bottom while Windows Phone 7 needed to have only three, bumer right.
Apple released iPhone 3GS back in 2006 when 600MHz were the dual cores and quad cores of that time and it will still get the iOS 6 update a year later. Just saying if they can take care of their customers, so can every one else. Even the original Motorola Droid can run Android 4.0 operating system even though Motorola didn’t officially release it, still Google doesn’t try it’s best to make it incompatible with older devices, Which Microsoft is going to try it’s level best to make wp8 incompatible on WP7 devices.
