    Another update from Microsoft - that's very unusual for them to roll out an update for Windows Mobile so quickly.

    Must be taking the mobile market a little more seriously - or trying to sell something.

    Err what are you on about? Since the 8.1 release, dev updates like this have been fortnightly. Some components more often.

    The big problem was the switch to 8, then the support for 'universal' apps. These broke the tempo heavily. Hell I remember talking on here back in 2011 saying how much I admired the momentum that MS had with WinPho, they were doing very well originally, then they kind of lost the speed, with the whole change of the kernel then the primary user-mode runtime.
