Microsoft Resumes WP7 Updates

Windows Phone 7 logoAfter Microsoft's first major Windows Phone 7 update turned a number of devices -- particularly the Samsung Omnia 7 -- into bricks last week, the company halted upgrades to all Samsung devices and explained other possible hiccups.

Yesterday, Microsoft resumed its rollout of the update to Samsung devices. The patch is being sent out on a rolling schedule, so it's possible that even some non-Samsung WP7 users have not received the update.

The Windows Phone Blog had this to say about the delay: "During the past week the engineering team has pinpointed and fixed problems that were preventing a small percentage of Windows Phones from installing the February software patch. We apologize again for the delay and continue looking for ways to improve the update process."

While, ostensibly, the error was made on the Microsoft side, it is interesting that the problem manufacturer during software updates is Samsung, yet again. Pure coincidence? Maybe.
