    I remember that on the 8.1 update page it said the Htc 8xt will get it but I didn't see an 8x anywhere
    They made only 3 WP8 models: 8X, 8S, and a carrier variant in the 8XT. If they don't update the 8X and 8S, their new phones are toast.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they don't update them to 8.1 since the market share is around 4% and most of them are nokia phone. so it has to show that their might not be enough 8x/8s users to warrant the 8.1 update

    That's the drawback of MSFT buying Nokia. Because their OEM and carrier relationships is a serious weakness, buying Nokia was seen as a shortcut to build on these. I don't think it is going to work unless MSFT streamlines what they're doing now, fast.

    And rightfully so. That would be a shame. If they announced that, I'd trade in my 8X right away, get a Moto X and never look back. If MSFT is smart, they wouldn't do that.

    I read a tweet from htc....they seem to have deleted it....can't find it anywhere.... I'm paraphrasing, "We are planning to support WP8.1 for HTC8x but we don't have a specific date yet because we believe in quality"
    And another tweet was from a guy to whom they replied again "we are planning to support 8.1 but you should ask your carrier" and the guy had said his carrier had already said him they are not gonna push an update for wp8.1 for 8x that is..!!i guess that guy has an Australian carrier he said something about 3mobile...I could be wrong though

    My point is look at the last few updates under 8.0. All the OEMs rolled the update around the same time - except for Nokia because theirs was the standard OS update + their enhancements (Amber, Black). Now that MSFT has bought Nokia, there may no longer be a coordinated effort to launch 8.1 for the other OEMs at the same time.

    ahhh well if you put it that way maybe msft phone might get updates faster and the other OEMS when ever they get around to it.

    Agree with that.

    I see the long release date for this update is starting to cause issues. I keep wondering if mine will show up simply because of the carrier. It shows on the list mind you but I can see them dragging their feet.

    Yeah. But you need to learn to separate movies from reality.

    I don't like clowns but it has nothing to do with movies. I just don't find them funny.

    So I fitted most of our place with LED lights. :) should see a drop in energy bills as the lights we had were very power hungry.

    I'll be fitting the rest of the place soon.
