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?

Yes. Don't take what Ars reports as gospel. Along with their sensational headlines, that part is plain wrong. You need not look further than the XDA forums where Omnia7 users have reported success in reflashing their phones to a restored firmware.

The "brick" does not prevent any phone from entering download mode and having a new firmware reflashed with Samsung's tool.

There has been no confirmed case of a completely irreversibly bricked phone. At all. Sensationalism at it's finest.
