Microsoft has just announced a new update for Windows Phone 7 devices, but hold onto your horses. This new WP7 update does not bring in any new changes including the NoDo update which will add copy-paste functionality to the device.
The new update from Microsoft for Windows Phone 7 will only improve the software update process . It definitely does not add anything more to the device.
This first update for Windows Phone is designed to improve the software update process itself. So while it might not sound exciting, it’s still important because it’s paving the way for all future goodie-filled updates to your phone, such as copy and paste or improved Marketplace search.
Windows Phone 7 is set to get the “NoDo” update which will include copy-paste functionality and an improved Marketplace for apps somewhere in March 2011. There are several more updates in the pipeline, but those do not have any delivery dates; except for that it will be available somewhere in 2011.
So if you were excited about the new Windows Phone 7 updates to your device, keep your expectations in check because the first major update will only arrive in March 2011. Till then have fun updating your device to get improved updates in the future.
To update your phone, connect it to your computer and update it using the Zune connector for PC or Windows Phone 7 connector for Mac.
