Samsung Taylor Windows Phone 7 developer devices won't be updated to Nodo or future releases

Here’s some bad news if you are one of the few who has a Samsung Taylor Windows Phone 7 developer device. According to Microsoft’s support the device will never receive the recently released NoDo update or any future OS release:

The Samsung Taylor was intended for pre-production use only.
They were updated to an RTM release at end of Beta to bridge the gap between end of Beta and general availability of production phones.

I know of no plans to release any further update for the Samsung Taylor devices.

This is understandable now that anybody can go grab a retail handset and use it to develop WP7 applications. Keep in mind that the Taylor and LG GW910 suffer from bugs that have never been fixed anyway (mainly related to the camera and digital compass).
