Will there be new phones with WP 7.8
I have a question that I have been thinking about for some time, and it is a topic which there has been little discussion about: The question is as the title suggest: Will there be new phones released in the coming months with WP 7.8 installed instead of WP 8.
The reason I think this might be true is that Nokia and Microsoft have made clear during that they want to push Windows Phone down both in terms of price and specs. Since no current phones running WP 7.5 will be upgraded to WP 8 due to hardware limitation how will Nokia and other companies be able to release middle and low range phones to compete with Android. Furthermore, everyone knows that Windows phone needs phones in every category to increase its market share and make it a viable and profitable platform for the hardware makers.
Please enlighten me with your opinions and thoughts.
