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?

Because there is a refusal to acknowledge that the situations are not the same.

By and large, every Windows Phone 7 owner has been updated to the latest Windows Phone 7 release.

A majority of Windows Phone users run the latest version of their platform. That is a fact. A majority of WP7 users are on 8773. The same is NOT true for Android.

Obviously, there is something much more out of control going on here, and I find it tragic that you, post after post, refuse to notice, or even acknowledge a difference.

Sure, of course, there is carrier and OEM pigheadedness in the way, but the fault lies squarely with Google in that they have not effectively dealt with the situation.

I refuse to equate the two experiences, because while most Windows Phone users are on 8773, by comparison, almost no one is on Jellybean. A fact.
