Windows Phone update rolling through for the AT&T HTC 8X
A Windows Phone update is being pushed out for the AT&T HTC 8X but there's not much to go on as far as what the update accomplishes.
The OS version remains at 8.0.10211.204 and the Firmware reads 1532.20.20100.502. The update only takes a few minutes to install and there isn't anything obvious as to what the update brings to the table.
Our guess is this update is similar to the update Verizon pushed out recently and has a few patches here, a few fixes there. We'll see what we can dig up but in the meantime, if you see any changes after updating, let us know below in the comments.

I've been getting the notification for the past few weeks , but I was busy & didn't have time for it !
(Yes I'm aware , its probably the same update only tweaked for each variant)
Nokia has invested quality hardware and far better technology than HTC on their windows phones. Not saying that the HTC isn't a good phone but better than the 920, I think not.
Yes there's things that can be improved upon like:
Heating issues (won't deny that).
Thickness of the phone (obviously ppl like slimmer).
All other issues are oS related.
A customer came in today with an 8x (the unmistakable wp text message tone gave it away) and even with his case I can tell his phone was lighter (first thought: fragile). I like the way the phone felt in my hand and the 8x screen looked just as awesome as my L920. I have nothing negative to say about the 8x BC it's a solid HTC phone however the HTC 8x cannot match what's under the hood (specs & quality) of the L920.
I got the 822 because the 8X was huge. Why people want a minitablet in their pocket is beyond me. I held both in my hand before making my decision and I could not reach the far corners with my thumb, so I would have to reposition it or use my other hand (a pain, not being able to reach the back button). Sure the "beats" speakers are cool but I'm not using my phone like some 80's boom box.
Also I have had Nokia's before (flip phone days) and know of their quality & experience, whereas HTC was a mystery to me. But really, it was the size that sold me. The 822 seems to be the smallest WP8 available.
What I assume/hope is that you're commenting on the wrong article and not just calling a piece of software gay like a 14 year old.
Due to the sensitivity surrounding the word "gay" (in adult society, the sensitivity is in my opinion unnecessary and it is a barrier), I'd have to agree with your decision to omit that phrase from your post. Taken out of context as it is, it does point primarily to you as the one with issues. Assuming that what you say is true and you aren't trying to cause problems, I am sure that you understand that I am trying to facilitate peace where I can. There are sides one can pledge to in the ongoing issue of the relationship between LGBTs and heterosexuals, and it is best to take none of them. We are all people.
