AT&T is testing out the NoDo update for Samsung Focus v1.4 handsets
By now, the majority of Windows Phone 7 handset owners out there are absorbing all the new features and functionality that come along with the NoDo update. Surprisingly enough, there are some Samsung Focus smartphones out there still waiting for the update to arrive – and it’s indeed becoming one grueling wait for owners!

Well, it seems like the update is going to be available very soon because AT&T is currently testing updates for v1.4 versions of the Samsung Focus. Actually, some people might not know about it, but there are two versions of the Samsung Focus – with v.14 handsets offering different memory modules. In fact, it’s the main reason why it’s taking an exorbitant amount of time to get this update available. Come to think of it, Microsoft started rolling out the NoDo update back in late March, and v1.4 Samsung Focus owners are still waiting for it to arrive.

At this point, there’s no arguing that the process is indeed one challenge to all parties, but we’re certain that handset owners will be nonetheless glad to see it arrive – even if it’s more than 4 months in the making.

How can I tell which one my son has? We updated the other day when backing up, and he now has cut&paste - is this the same update? Or is this a newer update since?

This other version is due to Samsung running short on memory chips and using a sub until their stock caught back up. Another Focus owner will have to post to tell you how to find this on your phone, but under device info it will have version or memory version, and that will let you know how to tell if it is 1.4 or 1.3. Wish I could be more helpful there, but I only know basics. It may end up being important to know though - Microsoft has gone out of it's way to let it's handset owners know that the Mango update will be legacy supported to all W7 devices. If you DO have 1.4, the Mango update may be slow coming as well. That is a big one.
