Gen 1, which you have, is still supported.  I'm not aware of any plan to upgrade these existing units.

There will be a major software update forthcoming on these Gen 1 units.

@Jstreet  That would be like expecting Samsung to upgrade you every time a new handset came out

Not a fair comparison.  Samsung put out a functional working product each release and yes, it would not be fair to expect a "free upgrade"

 

However, Vodafone "gen1" as you call it is basically a lemon that does not work as it was promoted or promised.  Issues still exist and there have been little updates on when Vodafone will fix those major ones of which many exist.  So it is more than fair for us to expect Vodafone might do something about it, like remove them completely and replace them all with their "gen 2" assuming it works as advertised.  Even VF CEO says it is a "trial" version and a "beta" product.  

 

Not sure why we who have the gen1 should be expected to accept anything less?
