While we don’t learn anything new in this video, it is good to see them chatting about updates, what is involved in making the updates happen as well as other things revolving around Windows Phone. Channel 9, which is composed of Microsoft’s own people, clearly would reveal any information Microsoft had not already told us. If anything is to be taken away from this video, it is that we will learn more at MIX11. The Mango update for instance is something we will be learning more about at some point between April 12th and 14th (MIX11).
I feel that this talk could be taken in two different ways. On one hand, it could infuriate WP7 owners as Joe Belfiore says that things are going well regarding updates. On the other, it is good to know that they will be more ready when it is time to release the Mango update and to see that their vision is to have all of the phones running the latest update.
Let us know what you think of this in the comments below.
Infuriate is the word. Is there no spell check or editing on any of these sites?

I am tired of seeing Microsoft’s visions (hallucinations?) about the future of Windows Phone .The vision I want to see is “update available” on my phone. I bought under the impression that this 1.0 operating system was to receive a series of updates in the short term to fix bugs and add features that would make WP7 competitive with the more powerful smartphone operating systems like Symbian and Windows Mobile 6.5. Now it looks like I shouldn’t have purchased until 2012 at the earliest.
