Microsoft Stumbles With First Windows Phone 7 Update
Microsoft has confirmed reports that an update that went out to new Windows Phone 7 handsets on Monday has a glitch affecting some handsets manufactured by Samsung. A Microsoft spokeswoman told Digits that the upgrade still appears as available to all Windows Phone 7 users, but that Samsung owners get a message saying that the upgrade is no longer available to them.
The spokeswoman added that Microsoft is “in the process of temporarily taking down the update for those phones in order to correct the issue as soon as possible.” There was no timing given for when this upgrade will be available to Samsung users.
Ironically, the upgrade is intended to “prepare the phones for future updates.”
