    Seeing as WP8 will be discontinued on July 2014 and all WP8 devices will have way to get the upgrade/update to the latest version.

    I assume we will get the WP8.5/9 early 2014 or maybe end of 2013.
    They will most likely have the new WP out before WP8 is done.
    Do you think Nokia will abandon this phone by next July?
    Nokia seems to support all its WP8 phones and get updates together.

    One thing that scares me is that this is a budget phone/introductory to WP8.
    This is to ultimately lead one to buy a more expensive WP8 phone.
    What if WP8.5/9 needs 1gb ram,where would that leave us?

    I also know that that is a ways off,but just something to think about

    Wouldn't it be Windows Phone 8.1, just like Windows? I see it referred to more as 8.1/Blue than i do 8.5/9.

    Might be so,but I've heard it for mostly Windows 8 PC/RT.
    Might also be the same for WP8.

    Next should be GDR3 then Windows Phone 8.1/Blue,

    have not read or heard anything about a WP 8.5 or 9.0 for the record.
