    Will the Windows Phone 7 be given for Windows 8 upgrade? Or we have to buy a new handset with Windows 8 OS?

    Will Windows give the update for Windows 7 to 8 in Windows phone? Or we have to buy again a new handset with Windows 8 OS? because if the upgrade is given I would probably use the same mobile without planning to sell it.

    Windows phone provide upgrading facilities from his windows 7 phone
    As Windows 8 is not launched till now but there must be upgraded from
    its lowest version. But i thing they provide only one step upgration.

    That means you can upgrade your windows 7 to windows 7.5
    that is windows 7 to Mango. But you can not upgrade windows 7 to
    windows 8. you can upgrade only from windows 7.5 to windows 8.

    But nothing is conformed. wait till official release of windows 8 phone.
    then we can say more about this.

    Friend, till now there is official announcement of Upgrading of Windows 7 Phone to Windows 8. But, it is said that you can Upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 7.5 Mango, when ever you receive a notification to your Mobile. You can Upgrade Windows 7.5 to Windows 8, but wait till the announcement from Microsoft. It would be a process which is yet to be decided and announced.

    Windows 8 phone comes with high hard requirements which will not be supported by the windows 7 hardwares.
    But for the windows 7 and 7.5 users windows is planning to release 7.8 version which will be more like windows 8 but with some limited features and functionalities.
    If you want windows 8 experience then you have to get a new mobile which supports windows 8 phone.
    However there is no official news.

    Dear guest,

    windows 8 operating system phones are required to have a different type of hardware. To make you more clear I can tell you that the phone that you have running on windows 7 or 7.5 will ot course have low amount of ram... Generally 256mb or so.. And windows 8 phones need to have 1 gb of ram and more than a single core processor can offer.. Its just like asking your old car to win against a formula 1 beast.. So taking all these factors I can tell you that the upgrade of your windows 7 phone to windows 8 is and will be just a dream. It can't be achieved. But when windows announced that windows 8 can't be upgraded in 7.5 versions it gave a option of windows 7.8 upgrade to avoid protests and aggression outside its sales points. Well you can upgrade your phone to windows 7.8 version. Its similar to windows 8 but has certain drawbacks in terms of speed and performance. The start screen is like windows 8 you get Bluetooth share and the wallpaper can be set to Bing..

    Thank you...

    You are currently using Windows7 phone and want to know wheather there is a chance for it to be upgraded to Windows8 phone.

    The answer is NO.

    Windows7 phones can be upgraded to windows 7.5 and finally to windows7.8 and thats the end of it.

    Windows8 phones will run on seperate advanced hardware which are developed for windows8 phones and windows 7 phones dont have those specifications or hardware support and hence, there will be no windows8 upgrade to the windows7 phones.

    You need to buy seperate phones for it.
