Windows Phone 7

Windows Phone 7 made its debut here in the U.S. in early November last year, but the platform is still without its big copy/paste update that we've heard so much about. Originally the upgrade was supposed to hit in January, but then rumors pegged its debut for sometime this month. Now it sounds like the NoDo update has been pushed back again, this time until March 8th. This news comes both ZDNet and Neowin, as well as a Samsung rep that allegedly confirmed an "early March" arrival. We'll probably never know the true reason behind the update's delays, but the rumor mill places the blame on either the carriers or the manufacturers requiring Microsoft to make last minute changes to the ROMs.

While something like copy/paste doesn't really seem like a huge feature when you have it, I bet that a lot of WP7 owners are really missing the capability right now. I'm sure that they wouldn't mind all of the other rumored features, too, like the improved multitasking, support for CDMA devices, and miscellaneous bug fixes that we've heard so much about. I just hope that this means that we'll finally, finally see the HTC 7 Pro and HTC Trophy arrive on Sprint and Verizon, respectively. Us CDMA users need some WP7 love, too, Microsoft!

Markell Simms Oh really your android never lags?? Try pench & zoom and scrolling on the evo nd then try it on Windows Phone 7....its way more fluid and the transitions on Androids suck soooo much ass..Great Job Google *sarcasm*
Ramon Quintero I dont know but my wp7 doaent freeze or lag on the zune player
John Zanatta I'm looking forward to the update. Honestly, I think I would prefer smaller OTA updates more regularly than lumping them all together. But as someone else said, as long as they get it right, I can wait a little longer. WP7 has been great. I came from Android most recently, and have used most major os's: iOS, WinMo, and Android. I don't see myself jumping ship any time soon.
Jeff Adams @Ramon: wp7 is not that smooth I have a wp7. It freezes alot when playing the Zune player most times i have to pull the battery. And i have to say i never had a prob with my evo should of stayed with the evo. But the atrix 4g will b out soon
D.j. Izzy How about a flash player update????
Charles L Kelley II Just let you guy know Microsoft ever said January or February 8th they say early 2011 its still EARLY!
Elis Diaz My Evo rarely ever lags, even when I'm updating a bunch of apps at a time.
Dave Trivino My android phone is hardly laggy at all, tyvm.

Mohamed Ahmed Which do you think is a better phone? Motorola Defy, or hd7?
Brandon Johnson Yea hopefully its been pushed back so they can add some better support so Facebook and YouTube don't look like shit when you access them from the browser. Html5 should have been available since day 1.
Ramon Quintero Carriers always lag it.
Michael Alfonso Ho I'm still waiting for the Gingerbread update for my G2.
Nathan Parks The new update replaces wp7 with android...jk! You're still screwed!
Mohamed Ahmed Oh, no multi tasking yet?
Mark Carruthers Here we go again!
Ryan Gontko My guess is the delay is due to Carrier and Manufacturer testing....ill be fine with the delay as long as they get things right
Ryan Gontko Copy/paste, faster 3rd party apps, etc....hoping they also fit in customizable ringtones and voice turn by turn via bing maps
Mohamed Ahmed What is new in the update?
Ramon Quintero Seriously i love my hd7 but Microsoft is taking way to long for an Update.
