09 Windows Phone 8It looks like if you’re not planning on upgrading your current Windows Phone 7 handset to a Windows Phone 8 handset, not only will you not be receiving an upgrade to Windows Phone 8, but it seems that you will not be able to enjoy in-app purchasing either. This was revealed in an MSDN documentation where Microsoft has advised developers that that they can only add in-app products to Windows Phone 8 devices. This has also led to the speculation that due to the lack of in-app purchasing on current Windows Phone devices, there is a chance that these devices will also be missing out on the Wallet Hub functionality as well, which provides support for NFC, contactless payments, deals, loyalty cards and the likes. Windows Phone 7 owners out there, are you guys bummed by this news or were you planning on upgrading to Windows Phone 8 anyway?
