Windows So, last night, Windows Phone 8 got its first update - specifically for the HTC 8X. In this day and age, where iOS is the gold standard and shows the industry how it ought to be done, and Android is the exact opposite, Windows Phone 7 was a bit of an in-between - every phone got every update, but the staggered rollout was slow and frustrating, often due to carrier meddling. How will Windows Phone 8 fare?

"On June 27, 2012 at the Google I/O conference, it was announced that the Nexus S would be one of the first devices to receive an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with the Motorola Xoom and Galaxy Nexus, began on July 26, 2012."

Was there any small-print in that announcement for Galaxy Nexus owners? From what I've read, it took a long time for Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners in the US to get 4.1, and it's possible some folk haven't even got it yet. Same could be said for owners of the device in many countries. My unit wouldn't be up-to-date if I didn't manually flash the firmware back to Google's stock factory image. Not sure if this was the fault of Google, Samsung or the carriers of various nations, but it still stunk.
