WP 7.8 update might come in a few weeks, WP7.9 in the works? - read the full textNokia can't (or more likely doesn’t want to) keep Windows Phone 7.8 info under wraps - new info coming from the "head of Nokia Asia Pacific Developer" suggests we will see the update much sooner than the previously rumored Q1 2013 timeframe. Microsoft never really announced a solid launch date...

that's why 4.1 and 4.2 are not the true update google
was working on.

Just you guys wait until the next update then lets see the boot on the other shoe

Excuse me ? Are you talking about comparing a rock age android phone : "Samsung Galaxy Ace" with windows phones ? Lol man, you must be living under the same rock as Galaxy Ace :D I can understand that you have used only one android phone in you entire life and have literally no experience on windows phones, but believe me when i say this,"You will grow up one day" :)

so let me get this straight...
Wp is awesome because it doesnt need a multicore it just needs a single core ...fastforward to today...old devvices cant get wp8, only 7.8...why is that ...cause it needs 2+ cores.
So where is your justification now ? Soon nookia will be using 2 krait cores...why the need for such power ?
nokia fanboys are mocking android which actually runs perfectly on 600 mhz cpus while the last symbian to run close to that, 400 something mhz, did so with imense lag and nowhere the smoothness of android.
Also nokia fanboys mock android with 1 ghz and up and one core and up for requiring too much power YET ICS iis running perfectly on 800 mhz xperia phones and htc phones and lg l3 and l5 etc.

at least windows needs to encourage companies to make applications for windows phone 8 os , or the version 8 will be same as the older windows phone versions - in other words a failure . limited capabilities and limited applications makes people skip windows phones and go for android , i os and bb os . when people pay for a smart phone these days they just dont expect there phone to be something like a nokia n95 , they expect there phones to do much much more . at least tell me if opera mobile is available for windows phone yet ? one thing i must say the live tile menu of window phone is smooth .

> In reply to Android is King @ 2012-11-20 05:11 from uBSu - click to readbro ive owned ace,then galaxy sl,now has galaxy nexus and lumia is good for nerds who like to play around with their device.but 99% people out there wants a phone which works perfect out of box.they may not have time to sit and root their device or unlock bootloader change kernel install custom roms and all.
Lumia 920 is a perfect daily driver i use it as my daily driver,microsoft designed an os based on common people`s need not for a small fraction of geeks.and you dont have any right to complain about a windowsphone unless you use one as your daily driver

Custom ROM
Factory resets and davik cache cleans

The Ace is not laggy, android is not laggy NOW
Poor phone skills are too blame.

As far as I know, there are differences between Google and Microsoft. Google's android is always free for anyone to develop. But the story is different about wp. Windows phone platform should be open source to gain the market share. Then You can make it closed source. But, microsoft's this attitude screws them. They never won the battle against symbian while being windows mobile and now being windows phone isn't doing great either for these years. Lumia 920 is a great phone but I will still choose android. And Google never asks for my credit card number.
