Windows Phone Blog has just published a new blog post providing a “Copy and paste” update status for all of us sitting anxiously (if you still have energy for that anyway). The article, posted by Eric Hautala, mentions how the NoDo update has indeed finally (FINALLY!) begun rolling out as of yesterday. For now, the rollout is only rolling out to phones that are “open market”: these are unbranded devices that aren’t customized for a specific mobile operator. He continues, mentioning that the next rollout phase will include more phones, but once again we are left in darkness as to any ETA. After that there really isn’t much new info besides the same old information about you knowing when your update is available by getting a message on your phone.
As I explained in my last post, we intentionally deliver updates in batches, ramping up gradually to help ensure the process is as problem-free as possible. (And so far, the copy and paste update is proceeding smoothly.)
Furthermore into the blog, a new website has been created to keep track of future WP7 updates, and what part of processing they undergo.
To help answer them, we’ve created a new online resource called Where’s my phone update? that provides some insight into where we are, and where your phone is, in the multi-stage update process.
Much like when you buy a PC online, you’ll be able to see when the update is being tested and packaged, when it’s about to ship, and when it’s “left the warehouse.” We’ll update the site once a week with the latest status changes.
At the moment the “Where’s my phone update?” page doesn’t have any information on NoDo. They may as well announce a new phone whenever the NoDo update releases because the ETA mystery piles up by day.
To any of you that have “open market” phones and have the NoDo update, how is it working so far? Any feedback you can give, good or bad?
Update: The update information page over at the Windows Blog is now displaying information for the NoDo update. It looks to be that the update indeed still has more weeks of delay.
