Early WP7 device HTC Mozart to get Windows Phone 7.8 in the next two months
HTC Poland has confirmed that it will update at least the HTC Mozart, one of its first-gen Windows Phone handsets, to the newest WP 7.8, meant for single-core devices.

While Microsoft said all WP7 gear will eventually be updated to WP 7.8 with its resizable live tiles and other goodies, it is reassuring to see someone other than Nokia confirm its phones will indeed get the new stuff, even for handsets as original as the HTC Mozart. Here's the answer gotten from HTC's Polish office:

Google Translate returns this as "yes, this model will receive the update," while previously in the correspondence HTC said to wait for it somewhere between the end of February and the beginning of March.

Already got rid of my WP7,5 devices after months of waiting and Microsoft saying s**t like it'll be out soon I stopped believing there was a update coming out and I'm going full on Android and I'm telling everybody I know WP7.5 devices to do the same, To little to late so Microsoft can stick this update up there ASS

You some kind of a ret@rd? You must have said the same thing when Android was starting out and perhaps now you're using it. As a fledgling OS, Windows Phone has nothing but GROWTH in its future.
