Is the Wait Finally Over for AT&T Customers?

"Microsoft released the much anticipated NoDo update in March which includes copy and paste functionality. Globally most carriers and manufacturers released the update soon thereafter with one notable exception. AT&T has held up the update for its users, causing frustration among its users and much digital ink to be spilled in blogs by bloggers and on social networks by angry customers."

Is it true? After what may have seemed like forever for some of you, is the wait finally over for AT&T customers who want to update their Windows Phone devices? Well, yes and no. If you're the owner of an AT&T Samsung Focus or LQ Quantum, then congratulations. If you're the owner of an AT&T branded HTC Surround, well... I hear that patience is a virtue. And you're going to be some very virtuous people.

Also of note is that AT&T apparently has included some AT&T specific features as part of this update. But before you get too excited I feel the need to inform you that it's nothing to be excited about. Check out the link for more details. Then discuss it on the forums!

February Update Roll-Out Begins for Telstra Customers

Posted by Darius Wey in "Windows Phone Software" @ 03:00 PM

So, without a doubt, the update process for Windows Phone 7 has been anything but fast and fluid for most users. Case in point, Telstra customers in Australia who, only yesterday, started receiving the February update notification on the HTC 7 Mozart and LG Optimus 7Q. Yes, we know what you're thinking -- the February update in April. A whole two months later. But as they say, better late than never. The March update, which delivers copy-and-paste, is supposedly arriving later this month, and when it does, we'll let you know about it. Of course, if you're rocking the recently-released HTC HD7, you already have both updates, so that game they call the waiting game is not yours to be played.

Australia's Telstra Opens Up On Its Windows Phone 7 Update Schedule

By now, you've probably perused the "Where's my phone update?" page from top to bottom. It summarizes the update schedule of most major Windows Phone 7-toting carriers and OEMs. Unfortunately, Australians on the nation's largest carrier, Telstra, are still waiting, not just for this month's copy-and-paste update, but also last month's pre-update update. Thankfully, after being bombarded with questions from its customers and the press, the carrier has finally opened up on where things are at update-wise.

As far as the February update is concerned, you won't have long to wait. The carrier has certified it and Microsoft should deliver it to Telstra-branded HTC 7 Mozart and LG Optimus 7Q devices within the next week. Sometime next month, you can expect the March update to hit said devices. As for the HTC HD7 which hits stores today, it already includes both updates, meaning you can copy-and-paste and load those apps in shorter time from the get-go.

Acer Smartphones Expected on February 16

It wasn't long ago that Acer snapped up E-TEN, and now we have confirmation that the first Acer-branded smartphone of 2009 will launch at MWC. Unfortunately, NDAs prevent me from saying much about what's coming, so you'll have to use your imagination this time around. What are you hoping to see from Acer on February 16?
