Before this, they announced that WP8 won't be available for current devices only some updates WP7.8. Now they pushed the WP7.8 update until after WP9??? What were they thinking? That will be at least 1 or 2 years from now. This really ticked me off. I'm switching to android right now

honestly, i don't care about these "cosmetic" changes. to me the important is, to be able to multiselect pictures in the gallery to upload, or delete pics, managing the content without zune, offline maps, etc.
if this is not included in update, i'll be really disappointed, because these are not hardware related changes
