Joe Belfiore apologizes for Windows Phone 7 updatesRemember it was reported last week that the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update was being rolled out? Well it turns out that the update was rolled out – to Europe, and to WP7 devices “unbranded” by carriers (uncustomized devices). As usual, folks weren’t too happy about it and raised hell over the issue. Microsoft reciprocated by releasing a timetable to calm everyone down, but it was too vague to prove to be of any use. And now it looks like Microsoft has finally pulled the apology card. Joe Belfiore, VP of Microsoft wrote a public apology concerning the whole WP7 update snafu. Well it looks like WP7 is facing the same sort of issues that consumers had with Android phones – delayed updates due to carrier and manufacturer interference, despite Microsoft’s aims to squelch the issue by not giving them the ability to completely customize their operating system. Hopefully Microsoft learns from this experience and gets their act together.
