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?

To contrast, when Windows Phone 7.5 came out, it rolled out to every device, across every carrier, in every country. Without a hitch.


Speaking of fairtytales. You clearly weren't there during the rollout. It took months and months and months, with bugs and bricked devices. It wasn't until TWO WEEKS AGO that the Focus 2 on some carrier got it.

Two weeks ago.

Wrong. Focus 2 came pre-loaded with Tango, a full release after Mango (7.5). It'd help if you knew what you were talking about.

The Focus 2 was not even out during the Mango roll out. The Focus 2 was released like four or five months after, during the Spring.

What the Focus 2 got late was a bunch of carrier and hardware specific firmware upgrades, and a small 7.5 Refresh update.

If the Focus 2 hadn't launched with Tango it wouldn't have had the 4G LTE stack that was added in the Spring update.
