    Is it true that HTC 8S won't get 8.1?? :(((
    I have an unlocked device and I got GDR2 and 3 about 3 weeks after the announcement. Can it be that this phone won't get an update? :((

    ALL current WP8 devices will be upgradable to Windows Phone 8.1. If you have a carrier locked phone, and for some reason, they don't release an update for your device, you can get the updates through the preview program.

    upgradeABLE, but will they be upGRADED? xD
    does upgrade depend on HTC? i mean, when 8.1 is released, can they say: NO! 8S won't get it!
    ps, I don't have a carrier locked phone

    thx :)

    "To say "done with Windows Phone" is a pretty blanket statement. I don't think a company such as ourselves can ever say that point blank. As strong partners of Microsoft, we're working with Microsoft on the Blue update on Windows Phone 8X and will continue to take new products into consideration. Nothing concrete right now, but who knows!"

    I'm sure 8S will be able to upgrade.

    HTC could say that if they wanted to. Either way, you can get the updates through the dev preview program.

    I really like this phone except for its 4Gb storage. The SD card becomes more interesting with WP8.1 if app installation on it becomes a reality as well as downloading maps.

    It will have 8.1, because there will be 4gb WP8.1 phones allowed

    4gb wasn't allowed for WP8, i have no idea how HTC 8S got through the checks...
