first major Windows Phone 7 update turned a number of devices -- particularly
the Samsung Omnia 7 -- into
bricks last week, the company halted upgrades to all Samsung devices and explained
other possible hiccups.
Microsoft resumed its rollout of the update to Samsung devices. The patch is
being sent out on a rolling schedule, so it's possible that even some
non-Samsung WP7 users have not received the update.
Windows Phone Blog had this to say about the delay: "During the past
week the engineering team has pinpointed and fixed problems that were
preventing a small percentage of Windows Phones from installing the February
software patch. We apologize again for the delay and continue looking for ways
to improve the update process."
ostensibly, the error was made on the Microsoft side, it is interesting that
the problem manufacturer during software updates is
Samsung, yet again. Pure coincidence? Maybe.
