Many Windows Phone users have been anxiously awaiting the NoDo update because it will bring copy and paste to the platform, a feature considered essential. It was delayed a week or so but people are starting to see the updates come to their phones.
Many Windows Phone users have been anxiously awaiting the NoDo update because it will bring copy and paste to the platform, a feature considered essential. It was delayed a week or so but people are starting to see the updates come to their phones.There was a bit of shock last year when Microsoft announced that copy and paste functionality would be absent from Windows Phone when it launched. It was especially shocking given how much grief Apple took for several years until it finally added it in the third generation of the iPhone in 2009. Microsoft actually engaged in some apologetics trying to convince us why copy and paste was unnecessary.
Thankfully Microsoft came to its senses on this issue and if you have a Windows Phone 7 you should see a notification in the coming days to let you know your phone is ready for updating. The problem is while Microsoft controls the update, like Apple, they do not control when it rolls out. The carriers do.
Hi Everyone - We know you're eager to update your devices. As with all updates from manufacturers, carriers need to work closely with the manufacturer to test the update prior to pushing it out to customers. We want you to have the best experience possible, so as soon as we have news to share on the update, we'll post it right here on Facebook.
Thanks for your interest.
Frustrating. The "best experience possible" would be to provide the updates as soon as possible.
Microsoft has done more than just add copy and paste. Search in the marketplace has been fixed so that you can now limit the results to just apps or just music. No more searching for an app and having 50 songs pop up. WiFi has been enhanced to allow you to see your MAC address, but there is no mention that you'll be able to connect to a network with a hidden SSID. For the full list of fixes and enhancements, see the Windows Phone Blog.
