    Since we're past Portico and glaring issues with the OS persist, has Microsoft made any recent announcements as to when they will release another update for WP8?

    No, though I'd expect that at MWC in a few weeks they will give a roadmap.

    I really hope they don't make us wait for a huge release update to address ongoing battery drain issues. Something is not right with the OS.

    Calm down. Portico has been released and it is shown to be lackluster. It is known that it didn't fix some problems and caused other problems. We are fully aware that there are those that did not receive it.

    Well, at least WP team need to rewrite the Messaging app to support skype for the coming update.

    Let's wait MWC for the Spring update...

    Doubtful, since this was rolled into messenger, they'll do most changes on the backend. Eventually we may see skype show as the name in the accounts list. It would also be nice to chose what accounts are online.

    I honestly think it's a bad idea for them to wait till spring to update. The problems people are experiencing are making WP8 look bad and isn't helping Nokia's image either. The Lumia 920 appears to have some design flaws, but some of the problems are with the OS itself.

    I wish they can come out with something sooner. Portico was a quick update with some new features I personally would rather wait until they stabilize a build and roll it out I am confident the WP8 can get that done.

    I am going to assume MWC the WP8 team will open the flood gates to the tech geeks that want priority upgrades. Allow some people to run the new OS figure out the bugs then roll it out to the general public around May-April.

    Then I expect a small Portico like upgrade in July-August and then a new update coming this Fall. So maybe 2 big updates a year 2 smaller fixes then bam you have a good cycle.

    I concur. They need to get out an update focused on addressing the current issues. We don't need more features at this point, just an update that fixes the random background app power usage and excessive heat and power usage when GPS is used.

    I would expect to see a product cycle across the board similar to Xbox. A spring update and a fall update for Windows 8, WP8, and Xbox. Maybe not all at fall/spring, maybe some Winter/Summer for a product category. If they timed it right, Microsoft could have big news hitting every month throughout the year.

    I hope they update XBOX music FIRST and their useless Sync Tool.

    I really like XBOX Music. Yes its pretty awful at matching your existing music but hard work manually matching the music where XBOX Music cannot do it is possible. It took me 3-4 hrs to get 99% of my music library matched and now its there across all devices. As for sync, I don't get the annoyance some people have with that. Why use a sync tool??? Why not just use windows explorer to move data across??

    The one thing I think is really needed is an update to sort out battery issues. Lasting a day does not seem to be possible with normal usage.

    Nope, but more than a few members who contacted Xbox Music team (esp regarding renewal of subscription, including me) have been told this will be fixed with WP8.1

    So don't know what/how many issues with Xbox Music will be fixed, but some rather annoying things like lag, cloud integration are definitely being addressed.

    Speaking of the Xbox music, why the heck can't I make and save a playlist? Is that crazy or what. I can't even do it on my Surface and send it to my phone! That's fundamental in a music player and they dropped the ball on that one.
