Windows Phone 7 NoDo update

After some delays and pre-update problems, Microsoft began rolling out Windows Phone 7's NoDo update today. According to WinRumors, owners of unbranded WP7 devices are now able to connect to the Zune software and install "Windows Phone Update – March 2011," which is build number 7390. It doesn't sound like T-Mobile and AT&T-branded handsets are getting NoDo just yet, but we'll let you know when they do. The full NoDo change log from Microsoft is available below to keep you busy until then.

It may have taken longer than anyone, especially Microsoft, would've liked, but it's great to see NoDo finally arrive. Now if we could only get an ETA on its arrival for carrier-branded devices, right? I'm sure that MSFT doesn't want to keep those users waiting much longer than they already have, so hopefully we'll be hearing more in the next few days. Stay tuned.

  • Copy & paste. You asked for it—now it's here. Just tap a word and drag the arrows to copy and paste it on your phone. You can copy text from emails, text messages, web pages, and Office Mobile documents, and paste it anywhere you can type. To learn more, see Copy & paste.
  • Faster apps and games. Nobody likes to wait. That's why we've whittled down the time it takes for apps and games to start up and resume. It's all part of our focus on getting you to the things you love, easier and faster.
  • Better Marketplace search. We've streamlined Marketplace search to make it easier to find specific apps, games, or music. Press the Search button in the Apps or Games section of Marketplace and you'll see only apps or games in the results. Press Search in the Music section of Marketplace to search just the music catalog.
  • Other Marketplace improvements. We've improved the stability of Marketplace while you download apps. We've also improved the experience of downloading apps larger than 20 megabytes, upgrading from trial apps to paid apps, using a credit card with an address outside the United States, sharing links to apps via email, sorting Xbox LIVE games by release date, and creating an Xbox LIVE account from within the Games Hub.
  • Wi-Fi improvements. We now display your phone's Media Access Control (MAC) address in Settings. (You might need this info if you try to connect to a Wi-Fi network that uses MAC address filtering. To learn more, see Connect to a Wi-Fi network.) We've also removed the limit on the number of Wi-Fi profiles that you can store and reduced the time it takes to start your phone if you've stored lots of Wi-Fi profiles.
  • Outlook improvements. We've improved the experience of viewing iPhone photo attachments you receive from a non-Exchange-based email account (such as a Google Mail, Hotmail, or Yahoo! Mail account), using the Global Address List (GAL) when connecting to Exchange Server 2003 using Exchange ActiveSync, and working with email display names that contain brackets (for example, "David Alexander [Contoso]").
  • Messaging improvements. We've improved the experience of receiving Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages if your phone uses a PIN-locked SIM.
  • Facebook integration. We've improved the experience of syncing Facebook accounts.
  • Camera improvements. We've improved the stability of switching between camera and video modes.
  • Audio improvements. We've improved the experience of using a Bluetooth headset to make calls when you're playing music or videos.
  • Other performance improvements. This month's update also includes software from several phone manufacturers that improves the performance of specific models. Naturally, if you don't have one of the affected models, we won't install this portion of the update on your phone.

Kiyoshi Fujioka I would have been excited if it gad been 4 years ago.
Oliver Leon This function has been existed in nokia cell phones years ago..more advance than iphone and others.
Don Harris Windows is still moving to slow.
James Adelan Cowie Lol no they should of already had that 'basic' function
Raj Madan STFU you dumb idiots. Android had copy and paste first? Shall we go back to Windows MOBILE. All you bashing twurps go sit on a motorway. As for WP7, MS did say it was going to get updates over the year after release, you knew what you were getting.
Zach Cline Lawrence you're s dumbass. Having everything on one screen is covienent as opposed to going through seven homescreens . Fandroids need to understand that everyone has different preferences. I own the Droid incredible and love iOS also. Guess that means I have no logic lol.
Kevin Pham Can't recall 5 times I used copy and paste on my iPhone or android phone. Not a big deal.
Adam Cuong Tran BTW Apple for people who doesn't have any logic in their head hence why everything layout on the home screen
Adam Cuong Tran This OS is a mistake even when it was a plan...way to go Microsoft u screwd urself over big time now its just Android vs Apple and symbian is somewhere lost
Jeramie King Copy and paste on the Droid really sucks. Copy and Paste on windows 6.1 rocked. It was so fast and easy.
Phyleece Young i have a flinstones window 6.5phone and i copy and paste.
L.c. Tooflyforafullname Carter If a phone has email capabilities then it should already have copy and paste.
Bryan West Why should anyone be exited about such a simple feature that should be implemented from the beginning?
Wei Yan No because it was already offer on windows how many years ago ? Why wouldn't they have it in this day and age?
Angel Miguel Peguero I havent used windows 7 so i dont assume things like ray say one dat i would try it
Ray Sital Honestly i havent had a use for copy n paste
Ray Sital The copy and paste feature is only a part of the upgrade. Iphone didnt launch with it or mms and look how successful they are. Now quarrels with android, i use windows and android, but im assuming most people commenting havent truly experienced the hd7.
Angel Miguel Peguero @frank what are u saying android had copy and paste since launch now windows phone 7 is getting it and fuck the iphone lol
Angel Miguel Peguero Is this a joke
Jose F. Barbosa who owns one? {silence}
Frank D. Rosario had it on my iphone for years its about time android already had it too haha
Zach Cline But yeah launcher 7 is actually pretty cool. Which makes me think i would like a windows 7 device because i like how i can have everything on one screen as opposed to going through seven different screens. Sometimes less is more. Thats why alot of people still prefer the iphone.
Tyrone Rupert To be honest, microsoft ain't nothing but a bunch of croocks waiting to late in the game to play leap frog. Come on copy and paste. that's the reason I'm starting to hate windows more and more. Being a tech and they so fucking far hehind on stupid shit to keep people interest. So I say it pointless. Make some real apps. Make the phone exciting or hire me and ill do it. I got experience
Marcus NinersEmpire U know look how long it took da iPhone to get mms copy and paste multi textin and everything eles hell da palm pre did better Dan da iPhone. IPhone garbage 1 threw 5
Saransh Sharma HOW TO DO COPY PASTE ON ANDROID
Zach Cline nope have that already on my droid incredible.
Phuc Le My opinion anyway, but I really don't know how WP can compete with other OS: nearly uncustomizable, boring looking homescreen which doesn't even turn when switch to landscape mode, no copy-paste until recently (but still very basic), no support (Im not sure if that's the case for every wp7 device) for memory card. Not-very-smart phone OS
Flako Ramirez Nope android FTW!!!
Samer Mohamed No. I use iPhone
Mark Carruthers Why is this such big news? So Windows is playing catch up with their competitors.
Sajid Sultan Qureshi They really need swype
Gabriel Sotomayor windows who?
Ryan Tong Its 2011.... step your game up
Ross Silva windows phone 7 rocks! it might not be as versatile as android and webos but its SUUUUPER SMOOTH and never lags
Zachary Daniel Meyer lol try launcher 7 on your android... and you wont need a silly w7p

Matthew Forteau copy paste is on all other smartphones alrdy so windows is kinda behind
Andrew Christopher iPhone's had that feature for quite awhile now and it functions without crashing.
Steve Griffith windows phone got it quicker than the iphone did, and mms support dont get me started 1 year to get that? LOL
Mitch Lopez Wow cut and paste, something that has been on every other smartphone for a while? Wow!
Joshua Bender Horton adroid ftw. ihpone nothing new in 5 generations. adroid different UI and different customiztions more than iOS. and android doesnt give 2 shits about hacking their firmwares. EVO
Mathias Van De Kerckhove well if there are people that are initially excited about windows mobile...
Micah Shaun Alexander Shouldn't it already have this feature.
Christopher Robin Linde I had copy and past on my Android phone before any of the other platforms.....just sayin'
