Official: AT&T Windows Phone 7 devices to receive NoDo fairly soon

Microsoft has just officially announced that AT&T’s LG Quantum and Samsung Focus are now scheduled to receive the NoDo update in the coming days. Unfortunately the HTC Surround isn’t invited to the party yet and is still being tested by Microsoft and AT&T. You can read the full explanation on the situation after the break:

The LG Quantum and Samsung Focus are now scheduling both the February update and the March “copy and paste” update. We’ve refreshed Where’s my phone update? to reflect the status changes to these models. We’re now working hard to expedite the delivery of these updates to you.

But we know we still have plenty of work to do. The HTC Surround, for example, won’t be joining the update party just yet. I know that probably comes as a letdown to Surround owners, so let me spend a moment explaining why.

The updates we deliver contain a complex stew of software code. The content often includes not only our fixes and improvements but also software supplied by companies that make the phone itself and the chips inside it. One of these third-party software “packages” earmarked for the HTC Surround needs additional testing by both Microsoft and AT&T. I apologize for the delay. As soon as I have more news, I’ll let you know.

    Whatever happened to the HTC Mondrian?

    Could be wrong but the Mondrian is/was the codename of the surround IIRC ?

    This is such crap. We were “supposed” to get these updates in the first part of April. Obviously that deadline was missed. It could easily be the end of April or beginning of May before the updates are actually pushed to our phones. And if you’re an HTC user, bleh… Microsoft and AT&T are so full of fail. I have thought numerous times of delivering my own update with a hammer and switching back to iPhone. Apple is pompous and they suck in their own way, but at least they are punctual.

    Got the Feb. and March (NoDo) updates today (4/21) on my Samsung Focus. 7.0.7390.0 here too. Only hiccup involved needing to make room for 6GB (!) space requirement on my C: drive to install the March update.
