So does anyone know if HTC will be rolling out the WP7.8 update on their devices too, or will it be just mostly Nokia?
Microsoft has promised it for all WP7 handsets, but after they finish the update, they still have to submit it to the handset makers and the carriers for their approval. My guess -- the first to get it will be those who bought unlocked phones without carrier branding. Then Nokia phones, then Samsung or HTC. Those waiting the longest will probably be from handset makers who have abandon their Windows Phone lines, like Dell and LG.

New Androids can be found for $50. if one watches for slick deals. Virgin Mobile has had many closeouts/sales on the Optimus V (now replaced by the Optimus Elite). In fact, Boost has run new account promos where they gave away for FREE their Samsung Prevail android smart phone with the purchase of starter plan..either their $55. a month (with shrinkage down to $40. after 18 months) for unlimited talk, text, and 2-3GB data. Radio Shack frequently has Android phones on sale at the $40-$60. level too.
The drawback for me on the Nokia is that the apps available are no where near what is available on Android. There is no hot spot app or work around for the Windows platform. That said, Windows is a solid o/s and the phone runs pretty smoothy.
I have seen some refurbs for that price, but not new. The only new one was a short lived deal on T-Mobile for $100 + tax Dart with free $50 minutes card.
