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?

Smartphone (as opposed to a dumbphone) is a platform device and part of its value is being able to remain viable as a software platform bearer. So if they sell an application phone yes it's their very obligation to maintain its ability to run apps.
