    We live in a world of Rumors. So Believe in Rumors & hope they will become True.
    99% this rumor is going to be true..
    I'd probably agree with the lad....think about it MS said themselves that and new phone released will have software support for 18 months....pretty sure one of the many new hardware vendors have released new phones that still use the old S4 Plus chips, so they really can't break a promise can they? Also WP runs well on less powerful hardware

    You can't have One after Eight. You can have nine after eight.

    They did it with Xbox. It's not a version, its a brand name.

    You can't have One after 360 but it still seemed to work out, right?

    In any case, there was already a Windows 1. It was the first Windows that came out in 1985.

    It may be called as WP8.2 or WP9 Itself..
    Hope MS will surprise us on Sept 30th with WP9 announcement along with Windows 9

    All devices right from 520 which was shipped with WP8.0 will get WP9
    But the features may vary according to Hardware support..

    It would be great if this was true, but based on how MS has treated it's older products in the past, I don't give too much credit to this.

    Many brands, like Zune (software and device) were eventually just dropped.
    windows mobile and wp7 users were all left behind, with the only option to get a significant OS update was to buy a newer device.

    I know that there was a major (kernel?) shift from wp7 to wp8, but the tendency for MS to push people to "buy up" (even those with relatively recent devices) seems too common over the years to stop now.

    I would not be to sure that all WP8.1 Devices get WP8.2. Somewhere i read "all devices that got shipped with 8.1 will get the update" This is a big difference to "all devices which run 8.1".
    Well you should think deeper.
    At this point most WP devices are shipped with WP 8.1 including the Lumia 520.

    Lumia 520 is shipped with WP8.0 (Amber/Black). From where did you get a 520 shipped with 8.1.?? The user is meant to update the device after unboxing
    The only phones shipped with WP8.1 (Lumia Cyan) is 630,(730/735),830,930, HTC M8 & few other new OEM devices

    Forget about WP7. Its support has ended.
    Its hardware doesn't support 8/8.1
    WP8.0 has support until 2017.
    So this may be true..

    Exactly! They need to go Windows 9, Windows 10,.....Windows 100.....Windows 300....Windows 360...Then Windows One. You can't have One unless you have reached 360 - a full circle.

    At least in Brazil, they update the phones and sell updated.
    This includes for all versions.
    Apollo to GDR1 / Portico, Portico to Amber, Amber to Black... And now, Black to Cyan.

    I hope that WP9 will include a real multitasking system, the actual one is not that bad but it can be better

    So what you are telling is that they are unboxing the new ones and updating it and selling it to customers in Brazil..Strange
    Ok if that is the case also the default OS in 520 is WP8.0
    As told earlier Shipped with 8.1 are 630,(730/735),830,930, HTC M8 & few other new OEM devices.
    You wont find WP8.0 Software Release for these phone anywhere in NSU or Navifirm. 8.1 OS is the default OS of these devices

    I am thinking there may not be a WP9. With the plans to converge all platforms, I hope to see W9 and W9RT. The new Atom processors will run W9 on a phone, and the snapdragon powered phones will get W9RT, or possibly W9 with restrictions.
