    No one knows because WP9 doesnt even exist, as far as we know. Even then, at some point WP8 devices launched over 2 years prior will stop getting updates, you cant expect Microsoft to provide updates forever. But knowing the entitlement mentality of people today it will be turned into a huge issue if MS doesnt provide an update so for that reason I hope they do.
    If my 1520 will not be able to upgrade to wp9... Sorry Microsoft but I will leave the platform. I had an iPhone before and I was able to upgrade the iPhone OS with not problem. Why is so difficult for Microsoft to do it?

    So you think the iphone you had would get updates forever? And Microsoft hasn't "done" anything yet so why the panic? Don't you enjoy the phone you have now, why the rush for an unknown update?

    I didn't said that the iPhone receive upgrades forever. However the iPhone 4s was able to get upgrades from IOS 4 to IOS 7... That's like 3 upgrades. I am a Microsoft fan but if they don't play fair with the OS upgrades on our high-end phones... I will leave the platform.

    while you're technically right, i don't think you can directly compare them. I recall iOS 6 not introducing many significant new features. (OK fine, small things and a new, less glossy look.) 0.1 number bumps over there hardly brought anything new, where in our case, its practically a whole 1.0 or 2.0 jump. Don't even think about the 0.0.1 updates. Where we got some minor .1 worthy upgrades, it sounds like a lot less than it is.
    iPhone 4: iOS 4 - 7 (not considering features removed, etc.)
    iPhone 4s is still current.

    Heck, Android is still on 4.x, major updates getting a .1 bump like us.
    OK fine, and then L came along.

    Well, I expect the 1520 to still continue on as a 8/9 break would be a massive PR failure regardless of the actual support provided.

    I am telling you if we don't receive another major OS upgrade in our 1520, I will say goodbye to Windows Phone.

    Android might not get updates but they overcome that by releasing google play services which will allow you to install almost all new apps.but wp has rather low apps collection.MS has to make available great apps to WP 8 owners through app like ms services if wp 8 is not upgradable to WP 9.if they drop complete support for WP 8 devices they will loose their market share.
