Nokia Lumia 900 can run Windows Phone 8, claims Nokia Care
posted by Nick T. / Jun 04, 2012, 2:56 AM
"The Lumia 900 is capable of upgrading to the Windows Phone 8 Apollo." – this is what a representative said during an online chat, as you can see in the screenshot below.However, it appears that Nokia Care is in support of the latter scenario, or at when it comes to the company's flagship Windows Phone model.
"capable of upgrading" is not the same as "will be upgraded to". In other words, companies may prefer to push newer devices running Windows Phone 8 instead of bothering to send an update to its current user database, regardless of whether their handsets meet the platform's hardware requirements or not.
Whatever the truth may be, we will likely get more information on the matter later this month. The Windows Phone Developer Summit is scheduled for June 20 in San Francisco, and chances are that Windows Phone 8 will be previewed.

Folks Nokia wants to make affordable smart phones I predict that Nokia will make cheap single core middle tech Wwindows 8 smart phones as well as the more expensive Dual core, High def screen. NFC, Pure vue Camera high tech Windows 8 smart phones that will make Windows smart phones have the technology to compete with the Iphone or the high Android smart phones like the Galaxy S 3. a cheap Nokia 900 running Windows 8 would still sell well if it is priced right because it's design is still very good though it is dated now.

I wanna live in the US where Lumia phones are cheap. Here in Asia, the unlocked ones are pricey as hell, especially the 900, same price as the SIII.

Its Nokia we are talking about, there's more than 90% probability that Lumia900 can run WP8. Nokia unlike others has never disappointed its customers when it comes to updates.

Seeing most Windows 8 tablet coming with 2GB Ram. I don't think any windows phone will get the true Windows 8 update. Yes there will be a windows 8 update, it will just change the version name and number. Some more updates and additions. To make us believe its Windows 8.

Book it: All WP 2nd Gen devices will vet WP8. Period, end of story. Chisel it in stone, and take the odds in Vegas. Everyone"cheering" for Microsoft to screw this up: Move along, nothing to see here. Find something else to complain about. The only debates here is when each manufacturers will get it, if there will be an Apollo release day for legacy devices like there was for Mango, and if 1st Gen devices will get it (I hope so. No reason not to.)
