I wish I can say its same with my HTC Desire Z. But it seems like HTC has completely dropped it off the radar. Will never buy HTC again

NO they have custom ROM which not everyone is interested do go for it... WP will grow and if Android continue as it is (OPEN SOURCE) only geeks will keep it and as secondary phone, just to play around with it

Look what happened to the current WP7 devices, no update, just got abandoned like that. For android devices, sure we don't get officials support.. BUT even a two years eclair phone can still get a gingerbread or hell even ICS by no official mean. Can a closed source do that? ;))

I live in the U.S. I had the Samsung Galaxy Note international version (N7000). I sold it to a friend of mine. He did a hard reset of the device to erase all the information and to return it to its factory default settings. He then checked for a software update in the settings menu and it showed up. ICS 4.0
