    Hmmm…I think the bigger statement being made here with support for the next three years isn’t so much that they will support devices for three years, that shouldn’t be an issue for this platform. What they are saying is we don’t see any significant software or hardware changes coming in the next three years that would prevent us from supporting future devices..

      I think the 3 years starts at the time the last wp8 is licensed. Similar to windows XP, 5 years after the last win XP license was sold.

    To little, to late MS. I gave you a shot with the Lumia 920 and now I’m just waiting for my google edition One to arrive.

      Willing to trade? I’ve been itching’ to get rid of my crappy Google edition One!

      Ha, I have a rare cyan Lumia 920 that I’m on the fence that I want to keep. That’s a Google edition HTC one you say?

    I don’t think that source link is correct… unless Microsoft published this news via a trailer for Oldboy through Yahoo Movies. >_>

      Oops, thanks guys. Definitely wasn’t watching the Oldboy Redband trailer right before posting this…

    • Daniel Bader

      Could have been a lot worse.

      Also nice to know that people actually click on the source links.

    The reference link is wrong – currently it points to an Oldboy trailer on Yahoo Movies site.

    The correct link is:


    Then select “Making Windows Phone an even better choice for business” dated July 10 2013.

    This is why I have a blackberry 10 device with full VPN support and multitasking and notifications and security I can rely on out of the box.
