Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

Major issues over at the WP team, this isn't defendable at all. They're shooting themselves in the foot, the face, and the chest by taking over a year.

This is unacceptable, and I find a lot about Microsoft acceptable.

The only bright spot is Nokia supporting WP8 with features through the end of this year, meanwhile WP development fell off the tracks at MSFT ever since they barely got WP8 out of the door in time.
