Windows Phone’s First Update Available Soon!
Based on the Microsoft KB article 2484484 “Troubleshooting problems during software update for Windows Phone 7” which has been released in anticipation of the upcoming update for Windows Phone 7. It’s safe to assume the first WP7 update will be available soon.
Gregg Sullivan, Senior Product Manager for Windows Phone 7, has made recent statements stating the update is not too far away. According to Sullivan, Microsoft plans to release the first of two updates within the next few months. Obviously, the first update will bring copy and paste, which was announced at launch, as well as bug fixes and better performance when loading applications. The second update, which is planned for release in “the first half” of this year, will bring CDMA support for Sprint and Verizon.
If you read through the article; updating through the Zune Desktop client may not be as smooth as one would think, especially for the people that currently own a WP7 device but have never used the Zune Client. Hopefully the kinks will be worked out by the time the update is released.
