WinPho 7 '1.1' set for March release

Microsoft or device makers behind the delay?

Security for virtualized datacentres

Still waiting for your first Windows Phone 7 firmware update? You'll have to wait a little longer, it seems.

Microsoft hinted in October 2010 - before the platform was even launched - that the first big WinPho 7 update would be coming early in 2011. Round about that point, CEO Steve Ballmer said it would actually be arriving "over the next few months".

Some users hoped for sooner rather than later, but according to developer moles cited by long-time Microsoft-watching blogger Mary-Jo Foley, the update - codenamed 'NoDo', short for 'no donuts', no doubt a dig at Android's confectionary obsession - won't be out until the start of March at the earliest.

Developers should know: they have access to the technology, and have had it since early this month. The update is set to bring users long-awaited cut and paste functionality plus a whole heap of tweaks.

For once, Microsoft may not be to blame. It's said network operators and device makers are demanding changes to code that was complete before the end of 2010. ®
