    One problem facing Microsoft is getting news about these updates out there. People (myself included) arent sure if they can upgrade their current phone to run the improved OS or if they need a brand new phone.
    I have a htc touch cruise. Will it update? I know if I have an iPhone then I can upgrade to 3.1 and enjoy the newest features. Does my htc have the same option? Thats where MS still has a long way to go and its quite unlikely they will catch Apple .
