Wow, just read an interesting new
Microsoft reps claiming Windows Phone 8 definitely coming to second gen handsets, probably to first gen | WMPoweruser
Perhaps all devices will get the Apollo update. What do you think??

I think the fact that Microsoft hasn't officially come out and say that Apollo is upgradable for the current Windows Phones make ppl worry (including me). They know ppl are worried about it which could potentially affect the current sales and yet they choose to remain quiet..there must be a reason for that..

By the time apollo comes out i'll be probably be due for an upgrade anyway, but the thing that worries me is that even if my mozart will be upgraded, will my carrier bother to do it.
It now seems clear that MS are not controlling the update process, and i'm still waiting for th 8107 update. Whether the networks can be bothered to support WP7 or 8 is the big problem.

Quote from the update article:The update, available to all carriers that request it, is part of our ongoing maintenance of Windows Phone. For more details on what’s included, check out Update History on the Windows Phone website.
so again its OUT of MS's control!!!! but it will probably go into TANGO for does that dint get it. ( like they did with the last updates )

that's because the update is regulated by the Carrier with Queues,
they don't release the update to ALL device at once to prevent server overloads ( like what happened on Iphone with IOS5 ) so they roll it out to a selected amount of people.
you can use the FORCE update method to get around it and get your update faster.
as for the 8107 , if your carrier dint roll it out , then you wont get it ( unless they put it in TANGO witch I think they will )

im not saying MS is out of control (even doh they might be a little , lol )
, im saying its out of their control if carriers don't release it!!
they give it to the carrier and THEY (the carrier) decides if they need it/roll it out. ( like i said in my other post this is only for minor updates , major updates are forced to be released.(like you said) ) and that's why normally MS adds the minor updates ( like 8107) to the major one( like tango). because ALL phones get the major update.
I think we understand each other. :)
