BLOG: Microsoft upgrade blunder gives people one more reason not to buy a Windows Phone

Preston Gralla | Nov. 1, 2013
A Windows Phone 8 device you buy today may not be able to be upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1. So why buy a phone that may not run the newest OS that will be released in a few months?

Microsoft should also be honest with people about whether phones they're considering buying today will be able to be upgraded to a minor operating system upgrade in the next several months. Not to do so is arrogance -- and when you've got a 3% market share you can't afford to be arrogant.

If I were considering buy a Windows Phone today, I'd cross it off the list. I'm sure other people feel the same way. Why buy a phone that may not run the newest operating system that will be released in a few months? And why buy from a company that won't answer the most basic question about a phone's capabilities?
