    What do you guys think about us seeing NoDo tomorrow? There have been rumors that Samsung Focus users on AT&T are going to see it tomorrow. I'm kind of skeptical since we haven't gotten the pre-NoDo update yet. Of course, they could be bundled together, but who knows.

    I'm looking forward to the improved Marketplace search, bug fixes and faster app launch times. I don't really have a need for copy and paste, but I guess I'm glad it's coming? Haha

    If the pre-NODO was to help NODO (and future updates).......but now rumors are floating that they can smush em together.....kinda makes you wonder if there weren't other motives for this whole pre-NODO business.

    It may stand for No Donuts.....which may be a shot at the Android Donut update...or somebody forgot Donuts at a Microsoft meeting...I donno.....

    Regardless....it's complete functionality we're not entirely sure....but it's supposed to speed up general phone, app, and marketplace performance, as well as add copy and past.

    Ok... For the people wondering; yes, the NoDo update will contain the "prep" update within, now for the skeptics asking "then what was the Pre-NoDo for?" it was specifically for exactly what happened to the Samsung devices, test update to see if/what devices fail and why to ensure future updates (including NoDo) don't fail. Now the issue here is when? I say... Good Question. Why is it a good question? because it is my understanding that a Samsung rep/employee stated that the update would come on the 8th of march (stated at MWC '11) however the fact that all of these samsung devices are failing; that may serve a perfect mask for Microsoft to delay the update a "couple of weeks" which we all know how long that may last. so given that, I hope it answers some questions.

    no. MS stated it would be this week (before the 14th I believe), but many places are stating it will be released on March 8th. So hopefully tomorrow. Some guy tweeted it would be today and everybody ran with it like a rabid dog.

    I really like this OS and I hope that Microsoft push themselves more or get better organized or something because this update thing is kinda getting ridiculous and I am expecting more upupdates.

    So NoDo will not be out today? If so, will it come through like a marketplace update or do you have to plug it into your computer and run the Zune software and sync to make it happen?

    No update for me. Do you think Microsoft is going to wait until next Monday to push it? The pre-update was announced on a Monday...

    well, at this point in time, I believe that everyone [that knows and cares about the update] is waiting with baited breath to see what happens, we are in early march which is when Microsoft stated it would be released. It has to start rolling out within the next eight days, they stated that everyone would already have it in two weeks time after initial rollout, so by April everyone should have it. (Hopefully)

    Ha funny. Well as I'm sure you've all probably read that the update is now out unofficially for dev unlocked devices to flash over at XDA. This is a good sign I believe.

    I wish Microsoft was more transparent in all of this. It'd be nice if they had gave a date. For all I know I won't see this update, just like I didn't get the pre-nodo update. Microsoft never said hey all US carriers are blocking the pre update...

    Word on the street is that all carriers have approved the update and now the only person holding it back is Microsoft. However it's still due this week.

    Neowin.net - Microsoft: WP7 NoDo due "sometime this week" [Update]

    Update: Surprise, surprise. Neowin has been informed that the "NoDo" update has been delayed, due to Microsoft itself. Carriers worldwide have approved the update, but Microsoft has likely delayed it due to issues with the pre-update on Samsung phones. We're told that we should see the update "this week" still.

    Yeah, its fine, I don't even want an update.

    Seriously tho, come on, this is kind of absurd. I would be happy with any sort of news at this point.

    Paul Thurrott just put up a blog post on Windows Phone Secrets complaining about the update situation, both NoDo and pre-NoDo. Maybe we'll see some official response to the post.

    A pretty crappy blog post. Apple has a much different situation than MS because Apple only has to update one brand of phone (theirs). Thus the comparison is a little unfair as MS also has to make sure the updates work on all (coughSAMSUNGcough) phones. And as he mentioned in the blog/rant, iOS is a more mature platform and have more time and ability to work on minor updates.
