    I'm afraid not. The reason WP8 is getting them is due to the new Windows shared core with Windows 8 and the ability to use native code for apps. Win 7.x built on Windows CE simply cannot do that.

    WP7.5 has the old Snapdragon S2 anyways. You wont be able to play many current games with great graphics. It's time to upgrade :-D

    Upgrade??? Purchased it outright 10 months ago... i on't have an excuse to buy a new one!!!! And in India phones are deadly expensive as they are not available on contract and the taxes levied on them... a phone that costs 80$ in US costs abt 89$ in India...

    Dont whine, phones might be expensive but carrier rates - calling, data etc. are so cheap. Have you looked at US carrier rates?

    Sell your phone, get a WP8 if you're desperate.

    1) get your facts right. 1 GB is 250 bucks. And 250 bucks is cheap.
    2) you spent 15k on a phone and cant spend 500 bucks on a monthly basis. cheap.
    3) American data rates are much more costlier. they start somewhere around $20 for 300 mb with no tethering! Will you be willing to pay that?
    4) I own an Omnia W.

    To be fair, American salaries are, on average, about 6x higher. You're not really making a useful comparison.
