I'm not sure the dual core was the sole reason for WP8 OS not being put on current phones. Besides, they didn't say it was a WP8 device. It could very well be WP7.8, too. But, my point is, it may be some other features that are hardware specific that current phones don't have and MS is just refusing to call it WP8. If you noticed, the article stated that the phone will have covers that will allow it to support wireless charging. It's not built in, which leads me to believe that the issue isn't just the amount of cores and the WP7.8 title, may just be a way of keeping people from expecting every feature to be available with current phones.
I believe with the 7.8 update, we can expect many new features, than just a new start screen. I just wish MS would not be so secretive, at this point.
