Microsoft reveals the NoDo update schedule, T-Mo WP7 handsets to receive the update within 10 days
Microsoft is really struggling with the updates of its mobile OS, isn't it? The first update that was rolled out last month and which, as you surely know, didn't add any additional features, bricked some WP Samsung handsets. Then, it has been quite a few months since Microsoft first announced it's to release NoDo in the "coming weeks" - a quick reality check shows that the first major update of the platform is yet to reach our WP-powered phones.

That's why the Redmond-based giant has decided to post a "where's my phone update" page (check the source link) on its official site, and according to it, T-Mo is "scheduling" the Dell Venue Pro's and the HTC HD7's updates. Apparently, this scheduling thing lasts 10 days or less, so we can expect it pretty soon - or at least we hope so.

Things look a bit grimmer for the owners of AT&T WP handsets. According to Microsoft, the carrier is still testing the update on its phones or, to put it less delicately - no one knows when NoDo will reach the HTC Surround, the Samsung Focus and the LG Quantum.

Microsoft is planning to update this page once a week, so you can check it from time to time - who knows, some good news may be coming (at last).

better to take your time and get it right on the first try. Its easy to pick on them for missing cut n paste, but hey, how long did the iphone take to get it??? 2 years??? that was truely pathetic. 6-9 months isnt so bad in comparison.

uh nobody even wanted it at the time... it wasnt a "necessary feature" just like multitasking wasnt until a few years after the 1st iphone

necessary to who? lol. the other 3 major platforms all had it for years. the iphone wasnt and isnt a true smartphone. Windows, blackberry, android, and palm all are.. (windows p7 isnt yet though).

real business people and people that needed a "productive" phone all returned their iphones and went back to the others. I remember many people switching from VZW to ATT only to switch back after realizing how little the phone actually did.

Get your facts right. There is a 3rd stage other than scheduling and testing. Its called 'delivering' on the microsoft website,Which could last for weeks so the updates might not reach anytime soon for t-mo handsets

The WP7 is a complete a waste of time, this thing doesnt have cut and paste, no file manager, doesnt support custom ringtones, this is like the first smart phone but wait even those had custom ringtone support. Its 2011 microsoft if you were going to show up to the game without the equipment of a free low end android than why even play ball when the phones the windows handsets attempt to compte with surpass it so easily........WP7 what a joke..

Updates tend to fix stuff. Example being copy and paste. I'm sure there will be an update to correct custom ringtones......
