It is almost here, guys! The long anticipated software update for all legacy Windows Phone handsets is about to start rolling out in a matter of weeks, and a couple of Nokia's European divisions have confirmed it.

And now, Nokia Italy tweeted that the new software is to be released in a few days...

Hopefully T-Mobile will push it to the Radar sooner rather than never. My Radar is starting to suck

I had the Radar as my first second gen Windows Phone and I really loved it. In fact the only thing that ruined for me was the 8gb of storage and slightly lower front camera resolution. I got the HTC Titan unlocked off eBay when the prices dropped. Easily the best phone I've owned besides the HTC HD2! And now I even get 4g in a lot of Baltimore. Can't wait for the update. It's only been 7 months but who's counting?lol

The touchscreen on my Radar seems unresponsive a lot. Did you ever run into this issue? Other than that, it's a great phone.

No I never ran into that issue but I only had it for about three months. I really loved the feel of it too. The screen size was not an issue at all but I may be a little spoiled now.

Excited!!! As one of about.... Oh.... 21 Samsung Focus S users, I am pumped for a refresh. I sure am not expecting it this month, although February sounds realistic and reasonable.
