Windows A few days ago, Microsoft released the long-awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update for all those users who will be stuck on Windows Phone 7 forever because there's no upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 other than buying a new phone. Now that it's here, what, exactly, does WP7.8 to the table?

Funny there hasn't been more coverage on this. I almost forgot what Microsoft did to their WP7 users. Android gets so much bad press from fragmentation, but at least there are reasons for that.(custom skins, varied phone specs, manufacturers/carriers in charge of updates, ect)

But really Microsoft isn't really obligated to push major releases to old devices. You don't get a free upgrade on the desktop version of Windows, why it is expected on mobile? My only guess is that we kept hearing how much better Microsoft's update strategy was.
