Unhappy No Soup WP8 For You

Every phone on the market currently will only be able to upgrade to 7.8 which means we will get the OS facelift start screen of WP8 (maybe other features too) but none of the under the hood changes like the new kernel (so no backwards compatibility) there will be forward compatibility though so if a developer writes code for WP 7.8 it will work on Windows Phone 8, Windows 8 and Xbox 360.

It kind of makes sense as why would we need dual core support or hi resolution graphics when our phones don't support it. Lets just hope that developers want to take advantage of the full market since Microsoft said they didn't want us to feel left behind, but part of me is still thinking about my Zune HD (even though we did get 60+ apps thanks to Dave and the Dev's on this board) I would have still like to see live tiles on it considering they dropped the ram requirements to 256 and benchmark wise the CPU/GPU even blows the Ipad 2 away yet
