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'll give your position some merit when I see 7.8 on my HTC Arrive. Sorry, but it's Windows Phone users who are 100% left in the cold here, by Microsoft.

7.8 is not released....Jelly Bean 4.1 and 4.2 have been released and have near zero penetration.

And? 7.8 was supposed to be out in the summer. Then it was supposed to be before WP8 was launched. Then it was supposed to be with the WP8 launch. Now it's some time next year.

Now tell me how constantly moving the goalpost is even remotely better than a released update? I've got JB but I'm still waiting for WP7.8.

And just to be clear: I would much rather be running a WP device than Android. But if Microsoft isn't going to stand by their product, I have to settle for the next best thing.
