There won't be backwards compatibility because there will be no disk drive and you will have to buy/download everything.

This is my question too. Honestly, I'd like an add on item that can read my discs and transfer them to the HDD or something so I don't have to repurchase my old PS1 and PS2 games.

He didn't say there was no BC for PS1 or PS2. He said that in the future those games could be playable on any device. He did also say that the PS4 is not natively BC with the PS3, though.

Yeah, the feeling that I had was:
- You will never be able to play PS3 games dierctly on the PS4
- You will in the future be able to stream any PS3 game on your PS4 (similar to OnLive)
