    The difference between the old and the new phones is the way the apps were written.

    Windows Phone Series 7 utilizes "Silverlight" (A program that competes with "Adobe Flash") and "XNA" (A platform for developing games for the Xbox 360)

    Microsoft is not commenting on whether or not the older phones are upgradeable and has currently no plans to upgrade them to Windows Phone 7.

    Windows Mobile 6.5 will continue to receive support. The HD2 (Large Screen) will start selling in the spring by T-Mobile.
