For the foreseeable future i am stuck on Windows Phone 7.8 with my Lumia 800.

Has anyone heard anything regarding the following?

Next Windows Phone Update - Will we get Windows Phone 8 on this device? The specs aren't that low :/

Big Game/App Releases? - Temple Run made it to Windows Phone 8 for example, will i get it?

---

If not im kinda forced to go for a cheap Windows Phone 8 or Android phone. Recommend a low-medium price device?

WP7.x devices will not be updated to WP8. It has different minimum hardware requirements and it's based on a different architecture. Support for WP7.x in apps/games depends on the developer. Most major apps will work but some games might be WP8-only.

As for cheap WP8 devices, Nokia has a decent selection starting with the Lumia 520. There's also the Lumia 620 and 720.
