    WP7 phones can't use Skype anymore, and almost no apps appear anymore.
    My HTC with WP7 is working perfectly but i dont use it anymore. I have given it to my kid as a toy.

    Windows RT was designed just like the iPad to be a media consumption device and do some work related stuff. In its current form and feature, it is still useful. Adding windows 10 will not change anything for the RT.

    If you're happy with that, sure it's all fine. But for me, my L800 is useless compared to my wp8.1. Adding w10 will absolutely change everything for the surface if it gains access to WP apps.

    How many phones from 2010 have access to every feature their respective OS offers today? The iPhone 4 is limited to iOS7 and missing many features. The OG Droid is stuck on FroYo. A little perspective is in order.

    You are the one who pulled wp7 in this discussion, claiming they still work the same as the day they were released. Apparently they don't, key features like Skype are gone. Skype is going to be build into w10, that alone is a good reason to want w10 on a surface2.

    So according to your logic, a brand new WP8 device no longer works properly because the Bank of America app has been pulled. I've had many WP7 devices, and still do, yet I don't recall any of them shipping with Skype. My Titan II still makes phone calls, still connects to the internet, still fetches email and still gets app updates from time to time.

    That's really great you love that old crap. Congratulations. Other people do want updates, have machines up to date. W10 is made to face the competition, to go forward and kick ***. Many people really want that update, period.

    Not talking about the Surface Pro 2, it's about the Surface 2, which has Windows 8.1 RT.

    Thanks for your reply.
