Windows My new phone arrived today: a blue HTC 8X, running Windows Phone 8. As a huge Windows Phone fan put off by several persistent issues in Windows Phone 7.x, I'm basically giving this platform another shot, and in this day and age such a second chance doesn't come cheap: the 8X is 539 EUR, after all. Here's a few quick first impressions after less than a day of use.

Regarding the future updates, from what I understand you'll be able to bypass the using 'carrier fucking the user over' situation as it exists now in favour f getting updates directly from Microsoft instead.

That is because HTC apparently does not to sell the LTE variant in Europe. At least for LTE phones in the US, this is going to be different.
