I just recently jumped on the bandwagon for the WP8 after having heard the LG Optimus 7 would never receive their updates and vouched never to go for LG's EVER. I'm scared of the same thing happening now reading all those comments about HTC ditching the HD7 :/ I have an HTC 8X and I adore it, especially the beats audio and the beautiful design (although 8GB is a bit small). I'm just afraid now that I may have invested badly :/ any thoughts? (P.S. I bought this phone off Kijiji for ridiculously cheap, that's why I highly considered it, and I'm an audiophile).

My last phone was a wp7 HTC titan one of the nicest phones I have ever owned bit at&t and HTC never updated it so I switched to a l920 and,I get updates for it all the time that's one of the main reasons I chose Nokia this time around cause of the apps and Nokia actually supports there phones after release like no other company ever has (at least in my experience) plus I have owned many of nokias older phones back in the day so I had a pretty good idea it would be a quality product . I mean I've had portico for my Nokia for over a month and HTC still hasn't release it for the 8x, unacceptable!

No need to worry, MS has guaranteed support and updates for all new WP devices for a MINIMUM of 18 months after release. That's possibly 6 months (18 in Canada) that your phone would no longer receive updates, but of course that's in theory.

Really man? I'm with Rogers and from what I read on websites, I have portico (8.0.10211.204). I always hated bell... And will continue to. Fido is the way to go for me, but I just bought a Rogers phone to make life simpler (off kijiji of course) since no windows phone are offered on Fido :'(.
