While the whole Windows Phone community is enjoying Windows Phone 8.1 GDR 1 update, it seems that HTC 8x owners need to wait more for it. The initial update was released on August 4th this year, adding Folders, App Corner, and many other great tools. But as I mentioned HTC users haven’t received the update due to driver issues. The following tweet from HTC support suggest that HTC owners still need to be patient and wait for the rollout. They do said that they are working on the issue and will release an update once its fixed but the big question is, how much time. This may also affect the newly announced HTC One M8 as users will be worried about the support in near future. Another big question which needs to be dealt with is, Is it a safe move to buy a Non-Nokia Windows Phone device especially when you have risk of missing out the latest updates.
@Lasp24 We don't have details to share right now but stay tuned for announcements.Are any readers hesitant to get the HTC One M8 for Windows after this? Will other HTC users be switching to Nokia/another OEM for better support?
