HTC HD7 update

Microsoft has encountered some bumps on the road to Windows Phone 7's NoDo update, but last we heard, it was scheduled to finally arrive sometime in the first two weeks of March. However, we're now hearing that the update won't be arriving until later this month. Over at the official Microsoft France blog, the company has stated that NoDo "will be available for the second half of March." Mary Jo Foley has heard from one source that the rollout is now expected to begin sometime during the week of March 21st. When asked about the situation, Microsoft's U.S. PR said that they were "looking into" it.

It's pretty disappointing to see that WP7's NoDo update still isn't here, especially considering all of the enhancements it'll bring, but I'm sure that you WP7 users out there are even more frustrated. At least we're going finally going to get a taste of NoDo goodness later this month when the HTC Arrive hits Sprint, right?

UPDATE: Microsoft just confirmed that the update has been delayed until the "latter half of March" to ensure that everything goes smoothly and "meets [their] standards."
