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?

The problem with your position is that you lay the blame on Google, or on the Android platform itself, for the delay. Any delay on receiving updates is purely the fault of the carriers, and that will happen, and has happened, irrespective of the platform. It was even worse for BlackBerry owners several years ago; AT&T BB users were left in the cold most of the time when it came to BB OS updates, while Verizon and Sprint users got timely support.

It seems as if you are the one being disingenuous for not acknowledging that.
