    Launch devices
    2 Nokia
    2 HTC
    2 Huawei
    1 Samsung

    = 7 devices

    Upcoming devices. My opinion
    2 Samsung ( Likely a low end phone and a mid range)
    3 Nokia (I think) (Zeal, Nokia Lumia 510 and one Wp8 device)
    1 HTC (high end)(Zenith)
    1 ZTE
    1 Lenovo
    1 Fujitsu
    1 Acer
    = 10 devices
    Rumoured OEM devices coming
    1 Asus
    1 HP(Possibly but very likely using Wp8)
    = 2 devices

    a total of 19 deivces in whole but 17 without rumoured OEM devices. I think It's a lot. We're gonna get bigger

    Also is it a requirement that the big three WP OEMs (HTC, Nokia and Samsung) must have three devices low end. Mid range and High end?

    I think a lot of "low end" devices will probably be WP7.x.

    I wouldn't call the upcoming phones low end. But some of them are mainly from the big three. If MS made wp7x free. Samsung and HTC will go for that fast

    I noticed that you listed the rumored Lumia 510. That is supposedly going to be running v7.x.

    By "low end", I mean that they're going to be cheaper phones targeting emerging markets. Phones that can sell off-contract for under $250.

    Handset vendors shouldn't be selling WP 7 handsets. It waters down the market for app developers and will **** off owners when they realize their "Windows Phone" cannot run Windows Phone titles made for 8.

    It's like Microsoft allowing vendors to continue selling Windows Me PCs long after Windows 7 shipped.

    I think when people are buying a budget phone, they know that they will have some limitations.

    Well, as long as the person selling the phone isn't a filthy liar.

    I dunno. Most people will see "Windows Phone" and think "Windows Phone." Then, if they discover their Windows Phone isn't a Windows Phone 8, they'll get very annoyed that it won't run the latest Zynga title, etc.
