Microsoft: Windows Phone 8 the Future but 7.8 Not Going Anywhere

November 19, 2012 1 Comment

Windows Phone fans that have yet to upgrade to a Windows Phone 8 are waiting to here about the Windows Phone 7.8 update on their last gen handsets. Recently, Microsoft’s Windows Phone corporate vice president Terry Myerson said we will be learning more about the update in the upcoming weeks.

Myerson also stated that Microsoft appreciates all of the people who have bought Windows Phone products since they launched it in 2010.

I would expect both platforms to exist for quite some time, from a global point of view. Windows Phone 7.8 devices will span much lower price points than Windows Phone 8 devices, initially, and given the application compatibility across the platforms, it makes the ecosystem stronger to have more device and more price points. We value every 7 and 7.8 customer we have; we’ll continue to work for them as well but it is true that Windows Phone 8 is our future platform.

Hopefully Windows Phone 7.8 will have a few more tricks up its sleeves.
