Windows Phone 8 Will Offer OTA Updates, 18 Months of Support

Windows Phone 8Windows Phone 8 owners won’t have to rely on computers to update their OS, unlike existing WP devices. The company revealed on Wednesday that updates will now be handled over-the-air, so no more messy wires or clunky desktops for the latest mobile goodness. The real good news, however, is that Microsoft will support Windows Phone 8 devices for at least 18 months. Um, so the Lumia 900 only gets a shelf life of less than a year? Cool. Fans of Windows Phone will definitely have mixed feelings about today’s announcement, but those eyeing up Microsoft’s new mobile OS, which offers a brand new home screen, Nokia Maps, and a Wallet Hub, have a lot to look forward to.
