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?

It's called the fundamental attribution error. When WP7.8/8 updates are messy, it's due to situational circumstances - when Android updates are messy, it's due to Google.

In the meantime, those of us without any vested interest in any one platform know where the faults lie. For Android, carriers and OEMs. For WP, carriers. Google and Microsoft are not even part of the blame.
