Windows Phone 7 hardware not upgradable to Windows Phone 8 (aka Apollo)

How many of you have bought a Windows 7 phone thinking that when Microsoft releases Windows Phone 8 (aka Apollo) in late 2012 you would be able to upgrade? Well guess what, you won't!

That's right, the smartphones you bought less than a year ago and the smartphones you are currently buying will not be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 8. So that shiny new Lumia 900 that you JUST BOUGHT has reached the end of the line before it even got out the door.
