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?

Not while I'm at work, but a quick search of Google from my phone shows dozens of articles going back in time to early September, each saying the release is "right around the corner" or "any day now". The most recent says "some time in early 2013".

When I get home I'll gladly get on my computer and write it all up for you, since you can't be bothered to do a little research yourself. In the mean time, I'll enjoy having an up to date phone. :-)

Microsoft has only confirmed the release date one time.

However, maybe your updated phone is powerful enough to let you invent reality.

You shouldn't be so quick to assume I haven't done my research, because I had, and knew the answer to the question before I asked you.

I just figured maybe forcing you to do a little work, and actually find out that you were wrong the old fashioned way, will give you some sort of caution towards making factless assertions in the future.

How you can show a chronic disregard for the facts is insulting, and especially ironic given I'm the one who supposedly couldn't be bothered to fact check.

I'm going to ignore your attempts to make me angry with your pointless hyperbole.

The fact is, Microsoft has been promising 7.8 as a boon to early adopters who were shafted when they chose not to upgrade flagship phones to 8. They told us the soon to be released 7.8 would get us by until we could buy a WP8 phone. But how could it "get us by" if we won't get it until several months after most of us upgrade to a new WP8 phone altogether? Face it, we got shafted and that's it.

You keep forgetting that I was a WP7 user for a very long time, and I still think it's the best phone platform I've ever used. But I'm not going to keep hoping and waiting for more broken promises.
