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?

Before android I've only ever had to update a phone firmware once. Smart phones are so disposable these days if you stuck to 1 year contracts and upgraded every year you'd never be too far behind.

Either deal with what they dole out to you or put on a custom ROM. Since when has it been a requirement that phones stay with the latest version of their OS? They have no obligation to do anything at all.
