Why does windows phone 8 need to be supported if all windows 8 devices will be upgraded to windows phones 9?

I just hope they keep it up by doing what they say cause it feel like most WP Devices can run up to WP10

It is important to note that support might end for Windows Phone 8 but by that time all Windows Phone 8 devices will get Windows Phone 9 Update anyways!!

Guys, I'm no techno-geek.. Just a normal user with a lot of interest in knowing about smartphones and other stuffs... So this question might sound plain stupid to most of u here...
But I was wondering if there is any way to back up the text messages and applications in WP7.5?
I need them to be alive so badly and I've kept my phone away from the 7.8 update only to save those.. Is there any way I can update to 7.8, but still have my apps and texts?

thats not a good idea because even nokia still not sure of wp phone future, you can convert to android and buy nexus devices but if you love nokia so much wp is good enough

That's another bait by the cunning MS to lure more fish. A lot of people will never forgive them for what they did to Lumia 800 and 900 which won't get WP8. Pathetic effort MS.

It would be great if they can keep up with the promise, but considering the speed at which the technology is improving I expect a lot of hardware exclusive features coming up with the next iteration of windows phone which may not be supported by all the phones.

And where is symbian now? Nokia dumbed it's old fanbase and now they will pay for that. Typing this from a Nokia 603.
