So then will the next generation of WP7 be available?

Will it coincide with the general release date of Windows 8?

Nothing has been announced yet but many think that MS must provide something for the next Christmas season

should be in April as well. check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Phone#Windows_Phone_.22Tango.22

do not expect tango to be a big thing, it is more-or-less a service pack.

Can all of the existing WP7 phones be upgraded to WP7.5 or to this Tango?

Or once you purchase a Windows Mobile OS phone do you have to leave it running the version of the Windows Mobile OS that it had when you first bought it?

because Microsoft controls the OS (and not the carriers), all the phone can be upgraded
