  1. Following reports that Microsoft would push back the first major Windows Phone 7 update to make sure it gets it right this time, the company has come forward with an official update on the current state of affairs. Writing on the Windows Phone Blog, Eric Hautala explains the complex process of getting updates from Redmond computers to 9 handsets on 60 mobile operators in 30 countries around the world. He also mentions that the "overwhelming majority" was able to install the February update and confirms that the so-called NoDo update has indeed been delayed.

    I'd like to them to release a CDMA phone already. At least you get to have a phone.

    Well since WP7 is usless i guess the natural update and upgrade would be pathetic :)

    i belive the update after this will be Pointless , code name Mango.

    To play devils advocate. i would rather they get the FIRST update right, after all it is the first one, really dont want to screw it up. The next update should be quicker because of it.

    I do have one question, when Android made the 2.2 update, we had to wait for Google to release it, then Samasung to make its mods, then i had to wait for my mobile service provider (Optus) to test it was well, then i had to wait til they put it on Kies, will win7 Samsung phones have to go though the same process or do these updates bypass the manufacturer and the service provider?

    never had this issue with Symbian .. sure an update was not released for all regions at once, but thay came when planned. Only delay was on those special modded operator locked modells...but who wants that. :)
