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?

I own an unlocked Nexus device and get my updates straight from Google with more frequent updates than IOS—and I recommend all Android users do the same. That said, I do find it quite humorous that a modern phone, like Windows Phone 8, is only now able to maintain a Wi-Fi connection while the phone is locked.


Yep. If I ever buy an Android device it will be from Google. I've got exactly zero interest in any of the other handsets that mess around with the software and screw everyone on updates. Completely inexcusable.
Google needs to offer a high quality phone though. The nexus 4 seems good for the low end, but there is no high end option that supports LTE (and the nexus 4 seems to have some quality issues: http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=39936 )
