Microsoft: Major Windows Phone update coming during 2013 holidays
Now that we have an idea when the update will be taking place, it might mean that those hoping to see the next high end Windows Phone model from Nokia will have to wait until the holiday season. Just the other day, we passed along to you the word from Greg Sullivan that Windows Phone 8 does have "an upgrade path going forward." Unlike Windows Phone 7, which had a rather rigid set of hardware requirements, Windows Phone 8 is more flexible. Sullivan also added that the Redmond based company is following a new policy which he calls a "shut up and ship" philosophy where the company doesn't release information about a product well in advance of its launch.

This is exactly what Microsoft needs to be doing: advancing and tweaking WP8 OS, in order to make it more appealing on a wider scale, and give customers the impression they are serious about competing in the mobile world.

Oh look, somebody disapproves. Let me write the reverse: this is not what Microsoft should be doing: improving and tweaking WP8 OS, and they should not make it appeal on a wider scale, or give customers the impression they are serious about competing in the mobile world.
Happy? Dumbass ;o)

I hope it's actually a major update like Gingerbread 2.3 to Ice Cream Sandwitch 4.0

I don't think so..
It'll be am major update bit not like android 2.3 to 4.0...because wp 8 was huge update from wp7.5..this time it'll not be that big...

Then the update will be like Android 4.1 to 4.2 .

I hope the next Lumia flagship will be called 930 instead of 940. Nokia's going to run out of model numbers too soon if they keep up with the +20 naming scheme.
