re: Windows Phone 8 Hit With Random Reboot Bug
On the one hand, this is NOT what Microsoft needs, given that they are starting from behind. On the other hand, most mobile OS launches (see Apple: Antenna, Battery Life, etc.) are rife with problems. The troublesome thing is the lack of response. Of course, you'd rather see them working on it, but at least put out something that says: we're working on it!

re: Windows Phone 8 Hit With Random Reboot Bug
Windows phone has been out for two years now, you would think problems like this would have been taken care of. This really show what a piece of garbage this mobile OS is, and the UI is even worse. No wonder Windows phones have not taken off in its two years out in the market. Windows 8 on the desktop is not fairing well either.

Win Phone 8 is a completely different OS from Win Phone 7+. Expect it to have different problems.

re: Windows Phone 8 Hit With Random Reboot Bug
You and I must be reading different things. Windows Phone 8 just came out within the month, and it was a fairly substantial re-write from Windows Phone 7. I'm not saying people should ignore or dismiss these problems; just that they seem standard fare for new product launches.

I have the Nokia 822, which is not mentioned in the article, and have had no issues like this at all. I doubt it's an OS issue and is probably HW related. I do run BT all day, navigation and have tons of apps installed. So far, the phone has run without an issue which I'm pleased to report.

NO IT IS NOT. WP8 uses the Windows 8 OS. Windows 7 used an OLD version fo the Windows Compact OS. Almost completely different code bases. Just as different as UNIX is to iOS.

TYPICAL MICROKLUNK CRAP TECHNOLOGY!

Why on earth would anyone ever buy anything made by Micro$haft aka Microsoft just escapes me.

I quit using MICROKLUNK WINDOZE 12 years ago and haven't had to reboot my PC since!

Today I use a Samsung phone running Google Android which is a Linux operating system.
I NEVER HAVE TO REBOOT EVER!

On my desktop PC & laptop I use RoboLinux which has a modern file system and has NO defrag ancient 4 bit FAT file system called MS DOS.
