Microsoft confirms all Windows Phone 8 Lumia devices will get Windows 10 Microsoft, via their Lumia Twitter account, has confirmed that Windows Phone 8 devices will be getting Windows 10 in the future.
When Windows Phone launched, early adopters were screwed when they could not upgrade from the first-gen Windows Phone 7.x to Windows 8.x due to hardware restrictions. Basically, Microsoft told early adopters "thanks for beta testing but now that the OS is good, you have to buy again." Thankfully, that will not be an issue for current buyers.

Interestingly, the company made sure to note that the update will be Windows 10, not Windows Phone 10, seemingly confirming that the next Windows iteration will be a completely cross-platform option.

Here's the tweets:

Well...that's rich! What a laugh. I'm still using my T-Mobile Nokia 521 which I bought from the Microsoft Store and to this day I'm still waiting to be upgraded to 8.1.
They don't keep tabs on the carriers pushing phones which use their OS or make those carriers do the right thing but we can all count on an upgrade to 10 ? Oh Mercy !
