    Kudos to Microsoft

    The Lumia 900/710 are not EOL.

    They are being upgraded to 7.8, which will contain compatibility with WP8 except for apps which require specific H/W support not present yet. Wallet apps with security features is one.

    For the vast majority of phone usages, a 7.8 Lumia will appear as functional as a 8.0 Lumia. Only wanabe tech geeks will actually care, normal users will not and the educated techies will not either.

    • There is NO compatibility with WP8 built into WP7.8. It will LOOK like WP8 but share NONE of the functionality, especially in apps. Although WP8 can run the older WP7 apps, that's a one-way street. Developers are being pushed to use the new framework for W8/WP8, and it's that framework that will exclude the Lumia 900, once upgraded to 7.8, from using them. Dead end, full stop.
