Default Windows Phone 7 Update Coming Next Month?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Today at the Microsoft Tech days, I heard (from a Samsung guy showcasing the Omnia 7) that the WP7 update should arrive during the first week of March. There's some cell phone show next week (in Germany, I think), where a few NDAs will lapse and announcements will probably be made about new WP7 handsets and the actual features of the WP7 update."</em></p><p>January has come and gone, and there hasn't been an update for our Windows Phone 7 yet. Rumours are pointing to early March as the time the first update will be released. I'm personally disappointed by that. Yes, this is a brand-new platform that's basically four months old at this point, but Microsoft had a key opportunity to show the world that their new update strategy was ready and they could deliver updates to customers without being hindered by their carrier and OEM partners. So far, that hasn't happened yet. The first update may very well be the hardest; carriers and OEMs aren't used to not being in control, so maybe that's a factor in the delay.</p><p>Regardless, March is a few weeks away and I sincerely hope Microsoft will deliver the update we've been hearing about for a while now. Even if it doesn't bring earth-shattering changes, it will show that this is a platform that will get updates and not be abandoned like we saw so many times with Windows Mobile phones.</p>
