Microsoft to delay ‘NoDo’ update for Windows Phone; late March new target

In a statement to Mobilized, a Microsoft spokesperson confirmed what most had been expecting — another delay to the company’s planned, March Windows Phone update. Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer, had previously stated that NoDo would begin hitting handsets in early March. “After careful consultation with the team and our many partners, we’ve decided to briefly hold the March update in order to ensure the update process meets our standards and that of our customers,” explained a company spokesperson. “As a result, we will plan to begin delivering the update in the latter half of March.” The first major update to Microsoft’s new mobile operating system — codenamed NoDo — is set to bring copy and paste functionality along with a host of other tweaks and improvements. The company’s spokesperson went on to confirm that this delay would have no impact on future update releases — specifically mentioning the multitasking update due later this year announced at Mobile World Congress.
