Windows Ah, something Microsoft really couldn't use right now: problems with the very first update to its Windows Phone 7 operating system. In this very competitive marketplace, in which WP7 is a late newcomer, it can't use major problems like this. The thing is though - how big of a problem is this, really? And, is it even Microsoft's fault at all?

Eh, certainly Microsofts fault, but it is the first update on an all-new OS, and they went all out and had a bunch of OEMs involved from the get-go. Having it all work out perfectly would almost have been too much to hope for. I would be surprised if the bricked phones even number in the hundreds really.
