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?

Its too early

Its too early to tell if it is indeed that carriers are blocking updates, or that a broader update release is being introduced gradually. Microsoft traditionally trickles out updates for Windows Phone. Its too early to definitely blame carriers.

Also, I believe Microsoft is planning some kind of opt-in bleeding edge program where you're pushed the update regardless. They mentioned it this past summer, I'm curious what's become of that.
