Seems to be a great day for Windows Phone owners. Most are excited about what's to come, while others are understandably frustrated they won't be able to upgrade their phone. I would be too if I had just bought a Lumia 900, but I honestly think Microsoft did the best they could with what they were dealt. This is a big upgrade and they are going to do the best they can with the software/hardware on the legacy phones.
On the other hand, WP 8 sounds very appealing to me. WP 7 already was, and being on Verizon I was going to purchase a HTC Trophy. Now I might hold off.
I can't live without transit directions on my phone. And Android doesn't appeal to me all that much. What Nokia offers looks awesome. I owned a Zune HD a few years ago, so I am already somewhat familiar with the platform.

I'm much more excited about WP7.8 and WP8 than I am about iOS6. Is this the same Microsoft that delivered BOB, Vista and the Kin??Palm Pilot > Palm V > Palm Tungsten T > Palm Treo 650 > Palm Centro > Palm Pre > HTC Hero > Palm Pre > iPhone 4 > LG Quantum > Nokia Lumia 920 > iPhone 5S

But its anything but cheap. 4 inch screen (wide width), Super Amoled on WP 7.5 is amazing for your eyes. Zero lag and very smooth.
This way also you get to ease into WP platform before upgrading to a WP8 device. Who knows, when you upgrade to 7.8, you might be satisfied enough , to wait until Windows 8.5 or 9 device comes out instead.
