Windows Phone 7 Minor Update Disappoint Users
The competition for Microsoft with its iPhone and Android competitors has not been unknown. It was considered something that Microsoft would take seriously and act upon. However, after releasing their first global update for its Windows Phone 7, many Microsoft enthusiasts and owners have been deeply disappointed.
The issues users faced after updating the Windows Phone 7 included locking up of phone before it completes updates, bricked handsets. The owners reported some ‘difficulties’ while updating the phone with the latest release. The issues were that either the phone just hung during installation, furthermore some other users reported that the updates corrupted the phone’s firmware. Worse, for some other users the phone appeared to be bricking the phone completely.
The two Samsung phones that have Windows Phone 7 are Omnia 7 and Focus. Both these phones users seem to have had similar issues with their phones.
It has been a tough time for Microsoft with the brewing competition and their market size shrinking with each development in the iPhone and Android market. Given this scenario, these issues will surely hurt their market more. Nevertheless, reports suggest that Microsoft is working towards resolving these issues.
