Microsoft announced loads features for wp8 that weren't available for wp7, ages ago, at the same time they told us about the lack of upgrade path for wp7.
They may well have secrets, but it's only going to be a couple. The feature set of wp8 is already miles ahead of wp7.
If that isn't enough, and the list of announced phones doesn't have a must have unit for you, then sounds like you need to make the jump to android.
I know which WP8 device I would get, but the device itself isn't going to get people to buy it. People need a compelling reason to switch to WP8. If they can't save a video file from their e-mail to their phone, then they might be bothered like I am. MS hasn't promised to fix all the short comings of the OS. There are basic functions that the OS is missing that would be great if we had them now, but we have to wait for a big OS update to get it. Reminds me of this Samsung commercial I saw the other day. "Oh you can finally change the volume of ringtones and music separately? We had that a long time ago"
