    I wish there were a date. Everywhere it is written very soon, which is an upgrade from "soon" a week back. So we should see this rolling out to all windows phones, the only thing which matters is country wise release cycle. SOme countries receive it earlier than others. It won't be long.

    Update notification is:-
    Microsoft Update 8.0.10327.77
    HTC Update for Windows Phone
    Microsoft Update 8.0.10322.71

    So, looks like two cumulative OS updates then...

    Wonder what the HTC update is....

    Only two differences notices so far

    1) No more "quietly brilliant" on the HTC boot screen
    2) Radio in the Music hub.

    Microsoft is discriminating against HTC, so HTC does not matter to this platform. No exclusive apps, no exclusive changes to OS.

    You might want to obscure your IMEI and Mac address there, just to be on the safe side...

    do you use the xbox music service? if so I'm wondering if the 1 second blank skip still exists, it's always near the end of every track but while the track is still playing. does this over Bluetooth and when headphones are plugged in or music coming out of device speaker. 8x on Verizon.
