PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

My employer had a Lumia 800 device on trial which I handily managed to borrow. I think the O/S is quite good, there were some quirks with it however the way the WinPho8 upgrade was handled was poor. I still use the device on occasion now and it's only ever had one update for the O/S to 7.8. While I know major updates aren't going to happen I thought they may have released more trivial incremental updates to fix minor issues.

BB10 in comparison is on it's 2nd update since the version when the device was released. Even if the changes in the incremental updates aren't major they are noticeable and worthwhile changes.
