Microsoft has announced that none of the WP 7 phones will be updated to WP 8. Maybe you are the idiot. Steel at least has a FACT that can back up his statement rather than simply spewing stupidity.

Lumia 610, 710, 800, 900 phones are made in China by Compal and Foxconn. Nokia only has supervisory control over the manufacture of these products.
True Nokia Symbian Nokia 500, 603, 701, 808 phones are made in Nokia factories in Finland, Nokia China, Nokia Brazil. These are truly Nokia factories.
