WP8 "Portico" update rolling out to AT&T HTC 8X and T-Mobile Lumia 810

Microsoft is slowly rolling out the first update to Windows Phone 8, known as "Portico", to a number of devices, with both the AT&T Windows Phone 8X by HTC and the T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 810 receiving the update starting today. These devices now join the ranks of fully updated devices, including the international and T-Mobile HTC 8X, and the AT&T Lumia 920 and Lumia 820.

Both devices receiving the update today will be fully updated to OS version 10211; in addition to that the AT&T HTC 8X will be bumped to firmware version 10009 while the T-Mobile Lumia 810 gets bumped to firmware 1249. The update brings several new features to Windows Phone 8, including persistent Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi hotspot detection, SMS call reject, IE10 improvements, and a few other general tweaks here and there.

If you have either one of these devices, you will soon get a notification informing you of an update, or alternatively you can manually initiate the update by going to Settings → Phone Update and clicking Check for updates. The whole process takes around 15-20 minutes depending on how long it takes to download the update, so don't worry if it seems like it's taking a long time.

At anyone asking about the Verizon update. I've been with Verizon for many years. No matter what platform I'm on, they never do anything in a timely matter. I'm only still using them because they are the only viable option in my area. Did you expect WP8 to be any different from an Android or iOS update?

I am very disappointed,with Nokia and the way the release of this update has been handled: AT&T, notoriously the worst of the worse in updating their subsidized devices, is releasing Portico and Nokia completely ignored people who bought unbranded devices, paying big money to the company. Great way to treat your clients...

Got it and installed it - it fixed several crucial bugs on my HTC 8x - before, I couldn't access it as a drive in Windows Explorer - now I can. The Modern Windows Phone app is now working, and it wasn't before. Before this update, I wasn't able to copy or sync anything from my PC to my phone - it was highly annoying, and a black mark on an otherwise outstanding device.

Damn Nokia, they don't release the update for International Lumia 920 yet.

I've got the 920, and I've got the SMS call reject available. So I guess mine is updated.
