    The RAM requirements for the big games has nothing to do with the OS. That is alone on the shoulders of every individual game. The main difficulty is that most games are ported from other platforms that manage RAM differently. It has nothing to do with OS itself, and how efficient it may or may not be.
    amm yes but Microsoft can make wp faster less ram efficient and maybe even les smaller(Os size on phone) while keeping the wp interface rich

    People panicking based on a speculation and rumour just shows how silly and spontaneous people can be, thus causing a domino affect - you would be surprised how fast the word of month can travel.

    Therefore one most always research, make logical judgments from themselves then speak or panic if said speculation is true lol.

    However in this case, unless its plastered in an article with concrete sources there is no point adding any fuel to this speculation.

    I would prefer it being more ram efficient ;).
    They could indeed optimize the OS, but game dev's are the ones to blame.
    I've had laggy 2d games on iOS and super fluid 3d game(nova 3) running perfectly

    Search first in the Lumia 820 forum. Then, if you can't find your answer, start a thread in the 820 forum.

    And so can any other OS creator in the world, optimisations are always possible with a project of such size. What's your point?

    What? Where did you get that?

    All Windows Phone 8 devices are to have a support cycle of at least 36 months since release.
    Even WP7.8 are under support cycle currently, but MS has abandoned it, who cares about support cycle it does'nt guarantee anything.

    Has WP9 ever been mentioned before by Microsoft themselves? Even talks about WP 8.1 or Blue are just speculations. We might even have WP 8.2,8.3 or something like that.

    No. Microsoft has never mentioned WP9. Hence, no statement about upgradeability was ever made either.

    I would really like to know what MS' update policy is... out of technical curiosity and to further my understanding of WP.

    However, worrying about updating current devices to WP9 now makes little sense. It's so far off, more than a year, that it really just doesn't matter.

    Support does not mean that you'll get all the updates. It just means that if there are huge security holes MS will fix them. It doesn't guarantee anything.

    Yes, all current devices will be upgradeable to the next version of WP. That is WP8.1. That is the only strong claim being made in any of those articles, which, BTW, can always be traced back to a statement made by Mr. Sullivan and has absolutely nothing to do with support cycles.

    That all current devices will get WP8.1 is undisputed. Anyone getting anything more from any of those articles either can't read critically or doesn't understand the intent behind MS' support cycles.

    And... as previously stated, nowhere is WP9 ever mentioned.

    Great. In the very first paragraph it is stated that: "the exact relationship between Windows (Phone) Blue and what is being referred to now as Windows Phone 9 is not too clear". So, at the time the article was written, both WP8.1 and WP9 may have been considered one and the same. Our understanding of WP's roadmap has evolved since then. Do you really believe they were testing WP9 almost two years in advance, back in march, even before they started testing WP8.1? No way.

    Look. It is a fact that Microsoft has never, at any point, stated that all current WP devices will be upgradable to anything beyond WP8.1 (which really is good enough actually)

    As long as we lack such a statement coming directly from Microsoft, then everything else floating around the interwebs is just rumour and speculation. Take it or leave it. Do with it as you will. I just don't think you or anyone else should be making promises on Microsoft's behalf, that we aren't certain will be kept.

    This is my last comment here, as it's hijacking the thread (there are certainly more appropriate threads we could raise from the dead if we want to continue).

    No official word yet on WP 8.1 or Blue and what the requirements will be so it is just a guessing game once again.
