A previous poster is correct. Lumia 900 owners and maybe some other model phones will get a WP 7.8 upgrade pushed over the air. That will give them WP8 "like" features, however, it will not be native WP8. The issue is hardware requirements which are simply different to support WP 8 from the core.
The WP 7.8 solution is actually fairly elegant and very nice of both MS and att wireless. I agree that it is crazy that a flagship device only be supported for six months, however, they compromised with the 7.8. I think that the best solution from att would be to simply allow 900 users to automatically qualify for the 920 upgrade pricing.
